Winter Edition: How to Hostess in Style

Winter Edition: How to Hostess in Style

December 20, 2019

The hostess of a party should have the perfect balance of the most comfortable and the most stylish outfit. Your glorious toastmistress should be able to climb a ladder, grab a napkin from the ground, shimmy in and out of the house with ease and poise AND look good doing it. Think this is possible? Absolutely.


Here are some well-balanced, un-boring, super comfy, party-going options:

 

KAFTAN


A kaftan is roomy, comfy and very stylish. Pair with a high heel or don’t. It’s more modern to wear with a slipper or loafer, but a heel dresses it up. Be sure they are new or polished. A ratty old version could really bring down the look. I really like an ethnic tone, but modern is fun, too.

JEANS AND TEE

I love a simple look but be sure to make these simple pieces extraordinary. For instance, the t-shirt should be extra special and pair it with a great pop of color ballet flat. Jeans should be new, crisp and very well-fitting!

 

PAJAMA LOOK

Obviously, the pajama look is perfect to host a party but it has to be lux. The fit is most important. Take your outfit to a tailor to make sure the hem is great and there is little to no extra room to avoid “sloppy”. Your hairstyle is important: you should have a great sleek coif (super straight hair or pulled into a tight bun) or lots of curls and volume.

Just like clothing, when you layer it, you immediately add more visual interest. I often talk about the third piece: most people just wear a first piece, a top, and a second piece, a bottom. The third piece adds dimension, personality and lots of optical excitement. Add a third piece to your neck, ears or hands, too!

You can have a wardrobe of black ties in your closet and believe it or not, they are all “saying” something very different. The fact that they are black gives an overtone of sophistication but there’s more to it than that.
