Celebrate Party Season at Style Encore

December 09, 2016

Raise a glass. It’s time to celebrate! The holidays have snuck up on us again, and now we find ourselves right in the middle of party season. At Style Encore, we’ve filled our store with a selection of gently used clothes and accessories that are perfect for the festivities. Available for up to 90% off the original retail prices, these deals let you indulge without breaking your holiday budget.
Whether you’re attending dressy occasions, casual get-togethers, or both, having a party-ready closet is sure to add to your holiday happiness. At Style Encore, we have the latest looks as well as tried-and-true classics. 
Bare Shoulders
Cut-out shoulder and off-the-shoulder styles offer a great way to show a hint of skin without baring too much. We’re seeing “cold shoulder” styles of every kind, from sweaters to blouses and dresses to gowns. Our suggestion is to make this open-shoulder look the statement of your outfit and keep everything else simple. 
Staying true to this season’s texture trend, velvet is a popular party choice for the holidays. This luscious fabric is rich, luxurious and always comfortable, making it a favorite for formal wear and more casual options, like slacks or leggings. We think holiday shopping in velvet leggings sounds so fun and fabulous that we can hardly wait to find some for ourselves. 
Jumpsuits have made a big comeback over the past two seasons and we think we know why. They’re simple statement makers that require very little planning. No need to decide what to wear on top and bottom, as the work has already been done for you, so all you’re left with is deciding on shoes and accessories. Easy.
Shoes & Accessories
That brings us to our next categories: shoes and accessories. They have the ability to make or break an outfit, so we consider them to be fashion essentials. For the holidays, we tend to think it’s fun to go all out. That means bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings to complete every party look. 
When it comes to necklaces, chokers have made a big comeback in the jewelry scene, and lariats, their longer counterparts, are also having a moment. Chokers can be worn with most any neckline (except turtlenecks), while lariats are fabulous with plunging silhouettes. 
Stacking rings and bracelets offer a fun and fashionable way to layer your favorite pieces, and earrings that dangle bring the sparkle up to your face. We suggest wearing all three, but exercise your fashion judgment when it comes to knowing just how much is too much. 
Just like with jewelry, we think this is the time of year to really indulge when it comes to shoes. Dressed up pumps, strappy sandals and even ankle boots can take you through the holidays, and beyond. If comfort is a factor for you, the newest wedges and block heels can add a bit more stability than super skinny stilettos. Choose wisely, so you can focus on the fun, not your feet! 
At Style Encore, we’ve carefully selected festive wear we know our customers will love! And with the amazing savings, there is plenty of holiday spending money left over for gift shopping and peppermint lattes. Now that’s reason to celebrate. Cheers!
