Confession time: For many years, I have romanticized the idea of wearing denim to a holiday party. And no, I don’t mean the kind of party you casually have with your family and closest friends. I am referring to the ones that are so festive that people plan their outfits weeks in advance for. The ones where tiny food is served all night on tiny treys. (You know where I am going with this.)
I know, in most social circles denim is completely unacceptable attire when it comes to this kind of festive soiree, but my rebellious streak and constant urge to play with new ideas in fashion has lead me back to this particular dilemma many times. However, I think I have finally cracked the code when it comes to navigating this uncharted territory of mixing denim with holiday dressing.
The key? The right pair of heels, of course.
I mean, didn’t Marilyn Monroe once claim that the right pair of heels can help a woman conquer the world? If that is in fact true, then why wouldn’t the right pair of heels help a style maven confidently conquer a holiday shindig in the denim of her choosing? Maybe this holiday season, add a twist to this idea though by pairing your denim with patterned tights or dress socks that really put some focus on your footwear.
Once you have that in place, expect to turn heads in all the right ways this holiday season.
