You’ve got a million social engagements on your radar, you’re trying to maintain your workout schedule (while still enjoying some champagne), and—worst of all—you’ve got nothing to wear. (No one ever said the holidays weren’t stressful.)
Pulling together a whole outfit for your BFF’s holiday bash doesn’t have to be complicated, though. With the right piece, you can take your go-to LBD to serious profile-pic-worthy status…and you don’t have to wipe out your bank account, either.
To prove it, we racked the virtual shelves of THE OUTNET for easy, last-minute threads and accessories that instantly elevate your entire look. And it wasn’t hard—with a selection of downtown-chic designers (like Alexander Wang and Isabel Marant) at serious-steal prices—plus THE OUTNET’s in-house brand Iris & Ink—it’s basically a cool-girl’s fashion dream.
So even if you’ve just finished a studio class (and emerged from locker-room shower), these curated picks will make sure your outfit is on point by the time your Uber pulls up to the party.
Read on for easy, show-stopping pieces that will totally make your holiday party ensemble.
Yes—the shoes can make the outfit. And when they’re a gorgeous nude suede with a delicate lace-up detail, they check off all the elegant, barre-inspired boxes. Team with a dreamy midi skirt, and your outfit is a go.
Even if you only wear it walking in the door with a smart coat, this wool beanie (with a shearling pompom) adds a luxe touch—especially when you don’t have time for a blowout.
Keep things streamlined, neck down—and then add these statement earrings. The dose of sparkle will multiply the total effect of your look, trust.
Sometimes, a glittery party dress is all you need. And in those moments, this shimmery tweed frock (in a sassy ’20s-inspired silhouette) delivers in spades. Throw your hair in a ballerina bun, slip into a pair of chic flats, and you’re instantly pulled together.
A petite bucket bag (complete with gold chain) feels very of the moment—and this emerald textured leather is rich enough to be the star of your entire outfit. (After all, no one has to know that you’ve got your dry shampoo and gym deodorant stashed inside.)
