This is a different kind of three ways post, but I hope it proves just as useful.
Why this outfit works: A bright clutch adds the dash of color a black dress needs. A statement necklace is the perfect amount of jewelry required and the colors of the jewels complement the clutch. Neutral heels that aren't solid black keep the attention on the clutch and necklace.
Why this outfit works: Neutral accessories with some sparkle give the outfit some holiday cheer. Rose gold complements the rich magenta hue of the pumps.
Why this outfit works: A bright necklace serves as the color source for the outfit, as well as inspiring the hue of the shoes. A gray clutch doesn't attract much attention but looks sophisticated with the blue-green palette.
Which of these outfits are your favorite? What are you wearing to your holiday parties? I'd love to see your comments.
