What to Wear: Holiday Office Party

Dressing up for the holidays is one of the greatest joys of the season but most of us don't have the money to overhaul our wardrobes. Fortunately, with a few key pieces, you can update things you already own and make them feel fresh and festive. First up, here's what to wear to that office holiday party. You probably already own a white blouse and black skirt. Try layering an inexpensive sequin tank (size up if necessary) over the blouse -- left casually unbuttoned, sleeves rolled up just a bit -- plus black tights and ankle boots for an entirely new look. Sophisticated yet glamorous -- and totally affordable!

What Would You Buy? Glam Bracelets

People StyleWatch has a fun feature in their magazine where they ask readers to ponder whether they'd rather splurge on one designer item or save on multiple budget-friendly items, so I decided to do my own version of this little fashion game!

Would you buy this Kate Spade Crystal Constellation Bracelet ($175, neimanmarcus.com)…



…or all of this?! (Total cost: $94, forever21.com)



Either way, these glam accessories are the perfect way to add shine to holiday parties. Layer them on for a personalized look. Or wear just one with a tee shirt and jeans!
