Holiday heatwave outfitsThursday, December 24, 2015
Who would have "thunk" it....70 degrees on Christmas Eve in New England? The high temps are definitely causing me to re-think the outfit I had originally chosen for our house party---a sweater dress and high boots. Forget it---I'll roast! Here are some ideas for lightweight party outfits that will work for this crazy holiday weather. Click on photos for details.
A silk blouse is a much cooler alternative to a sweater. Depending on how dressy your event is, pair with black jeans or black pants...even denim will work!
A short sleeve dress--go with a simple black number or dress things up with lace. Animal print always adds sophistication.
Want to really add pizzaz? Major bling will do it!
Or wear simple accessories for a more low-key look--but add a little bling, after all it is Christmas Eve!
Finish your outfit with flats or heels.
And a clutch!
This weather is just too warm for a winter coat. A wrap or cape is perfect to wear inside or out. A leather jacket is also a lightweight alternative that will add a little "edge" to your outfit.
What are you wearing tonight? I'll be posting my outfit later on as soon as I figure it out. Off to cook now. I'm hosting 30+ people tonight!
Merry Christmas to everyone!
