We love this smart chic pair of cat eye semi-rimless Kate Spade glasses. The slim, cat eye, semi-rimless style is timeless and perfect with work-ready skirts and dresses. This week we feature this pair of Kate Spade glasses with a holiday party look that’s fashionable and still work appropriate.
The Core Outfit
The dress is elegant and tame, the jacket is oh-so-fun and punk chic – mix and match and the result will “wow” you. We love the Kenzo metallic jacquard-knit jacket against the strapless, bright Carven dress. The length is work appropriate and of-the-moment (say yes to midi skirts!), and the cutting lengthens your legs and slims the waist.
Take a cue from the stars on the red carpet. They rarely wear a full set of jewelry with their spectacular gowns; this is because an overload of jewelry is distracting to the eyes. As with your makeup, you want to choose one point of focus (and for the stars it is usually their meticulously selected gown) and build around that. Here we chose the dress as the focus and built it up with accessories that accent with golds and blacks.
Small, diamond shaped earrings are a subtle highlight to a half-up or full-up party hairstyle, and our Kate Spade glasses are the finishing touch to this sophisticated work party look.
The Dolce and Gabbana Calf Hair clutch gives this look an edge, while the Jimmy Choo black/gold sandals give the foot more coverage while still having sexy feel with their peep toe.
With your dress in such a vibrant color, we suggest keeping your makeup light and natural since this is for a work party and not the red carpet. Go for a matte brown smokey eye and gently add a sprinkle of fine gold glitter to the center of your lid for some sparkle. Go shimmery gold with your nails to add a festive vibe to your fingertips!
