While my style has gotten more relaxed and simplified over the years, I still want my party looks during the holidays to feel a bit more special than usual (since this is a particularly special period of the year for me!). Thanks to Express, I’m balancing cozy, cool and festive sparkle for NYE this year (or any holiday party for that matter). Click through to read more!

My strategy for holiday dressing is to pick the one standout piece you want to work around (whether it’s a sequin skirt like this stunner, an embellished holiday dress, or even a statement necklace) and to dress around it with a restrained approach.
This cozy long cardigan helps offset the dressiness of the skirt and I love the sleek yet sexy addition of a crop top, which highlights a touch of skin without feeling too revealing. Some beautiful earrings, bracelet & chic heels later and I’m ready for NYE or any other holiday shindig!
