Before-and-After Holiday Party Looks That'll Be the Envy of All Your Friends

Hearing the bells jingle? That's because the holidays are right around the corner, and here at Who What Wear, we'll take literally any excuse to dress up and channel glam Bianca Jagger–style vibes. But let's face it: We'll be RSVP'ing to a number of parties in the coming months, and we can't wear a gown every time (boo). What will get us through all these events, however, are pieces that will work with us and our busy schedules, taking us from an office holiday party to drinks with a date under the mistletoe with ease.

The key here? You probably guessed it—artful layering and accessorizing. And to give you a head start, today we're sharing our edit of versatile statement pieces (stunning glittery ankle boots, anyone?) from the Express holiday collection that are on trend and ready to take you to all of the occasions you've got booked in the near future. Ahead, see the layering and accessorizing tips we're relying on this winter and all of the places we'll be wearing them.
