Classy and sassy are the words that come to mind.

You can achieve a smart holiday look like Lupita too. Here are a few simple tips to help you make a seamless transition from day to office party glam!

* A little red– or your favorite color this season– sleeveless dress can easily go from day to evening with the addition of a great sequin or crystal embellished jacket and clutch.

* Sheer sleeves are a big hit this season! Pair a pretty, sheer sleeved blouse with a pair of wide legged pants in the same shade for a classic, monochromatic look. Add bold sparkle jewelry and a shiny belt to make this an after hours glam look!

* Lace, brocade and velvet always add a little something extra to your outfit. Try an emerald green lace dress, silver brocade skirt or a fabulous wine-colored velvet jacket for an awesome look that works anytime!
