Kristin Heinrich, Charlotte stylist and fashion expert, here. Holiday party season is here and in full swing so in addition to working through your shopping list, you have to find time to get glammed-up for all those social invites filling your inbox and lining your fridge. But, when it comes to the clothes, there’s no need to panic. You can create a festive party look in no time by adding some razzle dazzle to your existing wardrobe. Embellished shoes, sequins, silver, metallic, gold accents, statement jewelry and bold color all elevate the basic black dress to a more memorable party-ready chic look. Here are some outfits I’ve styled to give you the inspiration you need.
