As the last weekend before Christmas, this one’s kind of packed with holiday parties. The bad news is that by now, you’ve probably already worn your favorite go-tos once or twice. In order to spend as little time as possible standing in front of the closet (and more time having fun), I’m sharing three easy outfit ideas Sarah Jessica Parker just shared with Neiman Marcus’s blog.
“I love wearing winter white,” she said, calling out an ivory T-strap Carrie heel from her SJP line. “I love picturing [that shoe] with a black velvet party dress.” The classic color combo is always a winner, and I love the touch of richness that sumptuous velvet provides. The fabric is gorgeous but tricky to wear in spring and summer—take advantage of the chilly weather and experiment (Avery’s even done all the shopping for you!).
If black velvet’s not your thing, SJP suggested wearing white heels with tailored black pants or a festive-hue crimson skirt. And if it’s white shoes you’re nervous about, consider two of her other favorites: the Brooks and the Doris, “a true evening silhouette that does everything you want a special-occasion shoe to do.”
