During this time of year, there are work parties, friends and family and in town and the random events that pop up on the spur of the moment. These are all examples of the beauty of the holidays of course.
In order to help you make the transition from day to night, here are some tips that will help you through a couple of varying scenarios:
From Business Formal to Casual
During the day you are dressed up, most likely, in a suit with heels and need something casual for a night out. Of course, I'm a fan of the school of thought that you are better to be overdressed than underdressed. Yet, if you know you are in for a casual night of fun, keep this outfit in mind:
A sweater wrap with an Adea Layering Top, leggings and boots.
First off, leggings are a lightweight option to carry in your morning bag that don't take up much space. Since many of us are seeing snow or at least chillier temperatures, wearing boots into the office won't seem out of place. Underneath your blazer during the day, wear one of your Adea Layering Tops, such as the Long Sleeve Scoop Neck. When you are ready to go out, you can swap your blazer for the comfort of the wrap, or, depending on your workplace you may be able to wear the wrap during the day with a pair of heels.

From Business Casual to Date Night
During the day you can dress down and although you could dress up, for the workplace, you may want to stick to your normal work attire. One way to jazz up your everyday attire is to opt for small changes to your day wardrobe.
Here are some examples:
Moto Jacket from Eileen Fisher
If you wear jeans to work, try a dark wash, which will help to bring your entire look together.
For your shoes, try a pair of chunky-heeled boots. These are often more comfortable than stiletto-heeled boots and will still be fun for your night out.
Don't forget Accessories. From scarves to costume jewelry, accessories can change the mood of nearly any outfit. Take the scarf pictured below as an example of how something that seems to trivial can actually make quite a change to your outfit, from adding a nice pop of color to drawing attention to your best features.

Overall, have fun with fashion and enjoy the remainder of the holiday season!

I have always been intrigued by the idea of flying around the world in a private jet to check off must-see spots on one’s bucket list. However, when I’ve received brochures about this type of travel the info is usually in the form of descriptive copy and photos of the tours. For example, the number of passengers per tour, how many days each tour takes, where the tour goes, what one will experience, and finally, the cost per person.
There was an enormous amount of planning, organizing and cash outlay for the royal tour of Prince Harry and his lovely wife. For example, there were 76 engagements and 39 official outfits for a wardrobe estimated at 118,000 in British Pound sterling (or $150,478 in US currency. (I did the conversion so if it’s wrong – which I doubt – you can blame me.)
In January, there was a lot of talk on the fashion scene when Karl Lagerfeld missed the Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris. A haute couture show is the show of the year. It is an opportunity for a brand to showcase the best they have to offer, not only in design and artistic abilities but in terms of craftsmanship with many details (if not all) completely done by hand.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
