Here in LA, we don’t need to worry about a blizzard blowing into town on a big night out and snowing all over our look. Yet come fall, the temperatures drop here just like everywhere else. These are some tips for creating a practical yet pretty cold weather party look.
- Layering is key. I love a full party skirt made of taffeta or velvet. Pair it with black tights and adorable little boots for a wonderful party look. Go with an opaque stocking that will keep you warm and look chic.
- Wear shoes you can walk in. A towering stiletto is gorgeous, but it’s not a great match for ice. I’m crazy about a flat boot that goes over the knee.
- Make a statement with a gorgeous winter coat. An opera coat can be absolutely beautiful. When selecting outerwear, remember that a coat should always fall below the knee, however, it doesn’t matter where the dress or skirt you’re wearing underneath hits.
- Accessorize! There are so many cold weather accessories that are perfect for a party. Some of my favorites include scarves, gloves (both leather and fingerless) and a skully, which is always so cute over a party dress.
