It finally cooled off in Los Angeles. But the other week I attended a holiday party in 95 degree heat. Figuring out how dress for fall during a heatwave is pretty tricky. My secret is sticking to a seasonal color palette and lightweight materials. I went with a wine and blush combo by pairing a dark floral sheer skirt (now on sale!) with a burgundy off-the-shoulder top and light pink bag (30% off today!). When it cooled off a week later, I wore the skirt the same way I styled it in my Fall Florals Trend Guide.
No matter what climate you live in, you can certainly take some inspiration from the holiday decor at the party I attended. Gearys Beverly Hills hosted a festive luncheon with Baccarat at Villa Alloro and it was picture perfect at every chair. My three takeaway tips?
- Flowers in small holiday boxes make for gorgeous table arrangements.
- Ornaments double as table place holders and party favors.
- You can never go wrong with a meat and cheese spread as a starter!
Stay tuned later in the upcoming weeks for more holiday party outfit ideas!
