Youʼre a super mom and youʼre already making your list and checking it twice. But have you thought about what youʼre going to wear to all the parties this month? Instead of dusting off last yearʼs frumpy little number, go and get yourself this versatile satin tie top. Mix and match the bottoms, add some fabulous shoes and accessories. Voila! Three stunning looks for three different parties. You’ll be celebrating in style without breaking the bank.

Keep it casual and festive with this look, perfect for a holiday house party, or a family dinner on Christmas afternoon. You’ll be comfortable, and you’ll look great. We’ve matched a satin tie top (Old Navy, $29.94) with trouser jeans (Old Navy, $34.50), green wedges (Aldo shoes, $74.98) and a panther bracelet (Forever 21, $12.80). For just a little over $150 you’ve got a fabulous look that won’t give you sticker shock when the credit card bill arrives in January. It’s holiday style that will work long after the holidays are over. Plus, you’ll appreciate the slight stretch in the jeans as you chow down on Christmas cookies.

Fancy Dinner Style

If you’re ready for a night out on the town, or you’re attending a more formal holiday meal that requires a little bit of dressing-up, this look will see you through. We’ve taken the satin tie top (Old Navy, $29.94) for a walk on the wild side, matching it with a Tarzan-inspired skirt, (Eccoci, $99.00), mary janes (Locale, $90) and a great pair of cluster earrings (Forever21, $4.80). For just over $220 you’ve got a fabulous holiday outfit with items you can mix and match in many different ways all year long. We know that you’re making an investment in pieces you’ll be wearing again, so versatility is the watchword, and we’ve got you covered.

For many of us, the holiday office party is a conundrum. You want a great style that says “party” without showing too much skin or making all your colleagues do a double take. We think this outfit is the perfect choice. This time we’ve taken the satin tie top (Old Navy, $29.94) and added a blazer (Dynamite, $42.90) to keep it festive and professional. Add a lovely skirt (Sears, $47.99), a pair of peep toe shoes (Locale, $41.99) and a heart necklace (Forever21, $4.80), and you’ll be ready to celebrate the season in style. Best of all, though, the whole thing will cost just $167.

  • Great advice Joyce. I have a bronze sparkly top that I think could work in the same way as your suggested silk top above. With a pencil skirt for my office dinner and trouser jeans for a casual cocktail party. Now I just need to find some outstanding accessories. Party planning done!
