HOLIDAY PARTY POSSIBILITIES

So many holiday celebrations, so much potential to shine. To get your party outfit planning up to speed, we’ve collected ideas from some stylish bloggers for wearing a few of the pieces we love this season. Once you’ve found your Express party look, it’s your turn to inspire others. Share your styling thoughts with a selfie on Instagram, and follow and tag us @ExpressRunway so we don’t miss it.

THE TREND: Two-Pieces Set

A two-piece set breaks the cocktail dress mold while looking just as pulled together, as blogger Kristin Clark discovered. This addition to the trend has a few party-specific benefits: lots of sequin sparkle, a touch of stretch for all-night comfort and a fit that’s body-con and midriff-baring without giving away all your assets. Her streamlined accessories, soft hair and classic red lip keep its ornate look from becoming overdone.

THE TREND: Jumpsuits

The source of this trend’s staying power? “They’re a no brainer, always chic option,” notes blogger Julia Engel. Her styling of our sequined jumpsuit shows how a sexy heel and colorful clutch can get it ready for a splashy event and a moto jacket can make it work for any night out. If the night’s wintry and you’re hitting more than one party, leg coverage and layering possibilities make a jumpsuit a doubly smart move.

THE TREND: Fringe

WEARING: Express Oversized Mixed Stitch Tunic Sweater, Ostrich Feather Fringe Mini Skirt
SIMILAR: tights, pumps, sunglasses, plus another fringed skirt we love
In other weather-minded party dressing, we’re crushing on the ensemble that blogger Helena Glazer’s built around a party-perfect mini. Her look brings together two wildly contrasting trends – lightweight fringe and chunky knit – with opaque tights in an all-black palette. The result isn’t just uniquely textural and flattering (check out the legs-for-miles effect with the tights and matching pumps), it’s cozier than the usual party gear.

THE TREND: Midi Length

The retro-fabulous midi is a master of versatility, which is one reason why blogger Annabelle Fleur fell for this stretch jersey dress. “I can wear it to a daytime event paired with a sleek leather jacket and booties or dress it up with strappy heels and a cute clutch for night,” she says. Annabelle’s also a fan of its sophisticated below-the-knee length (something to consider for office parties) and the sexy off-the-shoulder option afforded by its convertible neckline. For the girl who likes a little more glitz in her look, there’s also this.

STREET TO STYLED WITH GQ & EXPRESS
THE SPORT JACKET: MAN’S BEST FRIEND

 

For our November Street to Styled feature, we decided to highlight perhaps the most important item in a man’s wardrobe: the trusted sport jacket. From New York City to Los Angeles, this timeless piece has been helping men look sharp for centuries. Versatility and wearability define the sport jacket. Just throw it on and let it do all the work for you–no baggy dress shirt visible, just a streamlined, sophisticated look.

So, as winter rolls in, upgrade your wardrobe with a few new sport jackets. The options are endless: try using denim instead of wool, a suit jacket that can be paired with jeans, or a tux jacket loosened up for a more informal look.

As always, it’s how you pull it all together with accessories (from patterned bow ties and colorful socks to scarves and watches) that makes the difference.

Shop our featured looks at express.com. Enjoy the season.

STREET TO STYLED WITH GQ & EXPRESS: SEPTEMBER – UNIVERSITY APPEAL

 

To celebrate the return of fall, we’re kicking off another installment of “Street to Styled.” This time around, instead of looking for inspiration on city streets, we found it on university campuses from coast to coast.

 

Collegiate-inspired, all-American sportswear is on a roll. It’s slightly preppy and updated in a modern way – from a classic baseball-style jacket in muted gray to a smart-looking, fitted tweed sports coat with elbow patches.

 

Stay GQ sharp all season long in these key items from Express.

 

Enjoy the fall.
