HOW TO PUT TOGETHER A CHIC HOLIDAY OUTFIT FOR UNDER $500

realstyle_582x360-2
It happens every year. Come party season, you’ve overspent on gifts, plane tickets and hotel bookings until suddenly your budget for a new holiday party look is nearly non-existent. For those desperate not to spend another soiree season in the same old LBD, we’ve pulled together two chic, festive outfits that you can actually afford.

1) ‘Tis The Season To Be Sporty

The key to dressing for a holiday dinner is to find the right balance of ease and polish. The track pants’ satin sheen makes the sport-luxe style feel elevated, while the olive shade teamed with burgundy Manolo kitten heels is a subtle nod to holiday colors without looking over-the-top. And let’s be honest, after a few glasses of boozy eggnog and a couple slices of apple pie, you won’t regret the elasticized waistband.

 2) Slip Into Cocktail Hour

From the runway to street style, we’ve seen the slip dress everywhere for the past year, making it an easy choice for an effortlessly chic cocktail look. The velvet evening bag adds a luxe touch while the statement earrings are a nice pop of color. Finish the look with a classic pair of slingbacks you’ll definitely wear again. And again.
