SAVE OR SPEND: NINE WARDROBE STAPLES TO MIX AND MATCH THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Holiday party season is upon us once again, and it’s time to get that wardrobe ready for a whirlwind of schmoozing and boozing with all those relatives you’re only happy to see once a year.

While you may not be able to control how many times your grandmother makes an off-hand comment, with these picks, you will be sure to have full reign over how good you look. Whether you’re feeling a little loose with your wallet or not, the key to nailing down the perfect holiday look is to mix, match and layer (your most glitzy to your most basic pieces), crafting awe-inspiring and unique looks that will stave away passing thoughts like, Didn’t she wear that last week? Most importantly, be sure to stock up on statement jewelry and plenty of festive tights to pull together even your most run-of-the-mill outfits.

Happy Holidays!
