I’ve been getting more and more streamlined with my wardrobe as I get older but sometimes, you just need a statement piece like this sapphire party skirt from Barefoot Contessa. Have a standout skirt like this that you don’t know how to style? I’ve got 5 tips on pulling a look together that results in an effortlessly cool holiday look that will stand out among the typical party dresses.
1. Tie an oxford shirt like this one for a modern take on retro elegance.

I love this jolt of masculinity to an otherwise femme look, but tying it into a crop top helps highlight the waist (the most important part). Very Jenna Lyons.
2. A half-tucked cable knit sweater and stilettos.

The balance of coziness on top and sexiness on the bottom will give this party skirt new life rather than the typical camisole.
3. A leather moto jacket draped over your shoulders and a simple cami, with hair slicked back in a ponytail.

A rocker-chic take on a typically femme party look, and one that transitions well as the party progresses (just ditch the moto jacket).
4. A mariners shirt and a strong lip.

A graphic slouchy mariners shirt would look amazing against the bold colour of the skirt, and a bright lip will bring the whole thing together. If you suit glasses, make like my girl Alicia and do some bold glasses too.
5. A mohair crop top sweater and a retro ponytail or low bun.

Go for serious ’40s-’50s vibes with a super classic look but give it a modern vibe with a simple updo and clean makeup.
What parties do you have lined up for this season and most importantly, what are you thinking of wearing? Tell me in the comments below!
