Festive Party Attire That You Can Actually Wear Beyond New Year’s
There’s nothing like a packed December calendar to make you want to splurge on a gold sequined dress…only to have it sit untouched until next year’s holiday-party circuit. (Don’t even get us started on ugly Christmas sweaters.) These items bring the seasonal cheer—but still transition into your regular wardrobe without a hitch.
A dusty teal feels seasonally apt without being too on the nose. Wear it now with metallic heels and statement earrings, then in January with a blazer and boots.
Once upon a time, a velvet smoking jacket was reserved solely for occasions like sipping hot toddies by a holly-strewn fireplace. Thankfully, it’s since become an everyday staple (but still makes a great accompaniment to winter cocktails).

Today, they’re party-ready dancing shoes. Tomorrow, they’re the perfect way to spice up your all-black uniform.
