Holiday Party Look: Velvet, Sequins, & Coated Denim

Greetings, friends! Is everyone getting back in the swing of things after the long weekend? 20 Days of Winter Fashion is back, and today I’ve got yet another party look for you with a sequin cami and coated denim.

I didn’t want to post this one back-to-back with yesterday’s looks because it’s rather similar, however, it appears that White House Black Market has not yet discontinued their Cyber Monday sale, and they don’t run sales very often, so I’m hoping to slip this in before they turn it off.

I’m such a sucker for a sequin top, and I absolutely love the floral detail on this cami, plus the colors are absolutely stunning. The teal is unexpected yet totally holiday appropriate.

For size reference, I have this cami in a medium, and the straps are adjustable, which is awesome. Being short-waisted and bigger chested, I usually need to shorten the straps on tops like these to keep them modest.

You’ll recognize the metallic clutch and velvet blazer from yesterday’s post. Both pieces are such great holiday style staples. The blazer is still on sale at Lord & Taylor, and you can also find it full stocked at Nordstrom (but not on sale — not sure why they’re not price matching but perhaps customer service would make an adjustment; their online chat feature is great.)

And remember how yesterday I said I didn’t mean to wear these earrings with those other two looks? I still had them in from this look.

I love how they work with this top and the black blazer. The bracelet isn’t quite right for the look, though. I’d wanted to wear this wrap bracelet and couldn’t find it at the time. I often wear this bracelet with these earrings because they work so well together.

Here’s my hint for accessorizing and having the right pieces when you need them. I try to buy things that work together, and then I always wear them together. Boring? Maybe, but I think it gets tiring to always be putting new combinations of accessories together. When I find a pairing that works, I use it over and over.

Unfortunately, these earrings are sold out, but I love this pair. I think it would work with so many festive outfits — and it would work well with this coil wrap bracelet.  Or this bracelet is another good one for dressy looks, and it would work well with those teardrop earrings.

On the bottom, I went with black coated denim skinnies and black suede pumps. I really like the mix of textures in this outfit. Coated jeans are a fun way to get the leather look without the price tag, and I find faux leather incredibly uncomfortable. Coated denim can be machine washed, and while it’s a tad stiff, it’s still breathable because it’s mostly cotton.

I’ve had these coated jeans for years, but I think these at Shopbop are pretty close in color. They’re at least the same DL1961 Emma legging. I also rounded up a few other pairs from different brands in the shopping widget below, including a couple under $100.

My shoes are like 15 years old, no joke. I linked up a similar style, but any black suede pump would work with this look. A strappy sandal would be great too, but I think I’d stick to black.

This is a fun holiday party look that is plenty festive but comfortable too, and the cami is so versatile — you could dress it down with blue jeans or remove the jacket if you want a less conservative look. It would also look nice with black trousers and a ponte blazer for a holiday work function, and I can also see wearing this exact outfit working to a NYE party.
