'Tis the season to glam it up holiday style, and as personal stylist Jennifer McConville shows us, you can do it for $200 or less!
Gold "Gatsby" Dress
When selecting a dress that draws obvious inspiration from a certain period or decade, keep your accessories modern and minimal to avoid looking costume-y.
Tip: A dress is a great evening wear option because it makes a statement with just one piece. To save on this look, think about wearing a new dress with evening shoes and accessories that you already have at home.
Total Cost: $149.90
Tulle Party Skirt
A full skirt in a flirty, lightweight fabric is a great way to wear this trend (without looking like a tent). Keep things slim on top to flatter your silhouette.
Tip: Selecting a pair of evening shoes in a timeless, unique style is a smart buy (black patent is a great choice). They can be your go-to for future events.
Total Cost: $197.68
Adding sparkly and metallic accents to an edgy piece makes it wearable for evening.
Tip: A fancy pair of trousers can be repurposed for day by swapping the sparkle for a chunky knit sweater and cute ballet flat or loafer.
Total Cost: $195.85
Cashmere and Sequins
Mixing textures is a fun and unexpected way to dress for evening. The combination of soft, fuzzy cashmere works beautifully with the super-glossy sequin skirt.
Tip: Cashmere is always in style, and is a great way to add a little luxe to your everyday wardrobe. Go for it!
Total Cost: $198.95
Old Hollywood Glam/Black and White Dress
A midi-length skirt or dress is best worn with a classic pointy or almond toe pump. A faux fur stole adds a touch of old Hollywood glam to this 40s inspired look.
Tip: Stretch your budget by making your accessories do double duty. A bold statement clutch works as both jewelry and a chic holder for your evening essentials.
Total Cost: $193.39
Jewel Print Dress
When wearing a bold print, choose accessories in the same colour family to allow the print to shine.
Tip: A leg-elongating, nude patent shoe is a girl's best friend. Make your dollars work harder by selecting a shoe you can wear again and again.
