Our Team: The Holiday Party Edition

Unlike, say, a royal wedding or the Masters tournament, the event of a holiday party is not governed by a strict set of fashion commandments. But we’d like to think there’s at least one guideline to follow: It’s probably best to avoid upstaging the Christmas tree. Leave the light-up ties at home and tinsel does not an acceptable scarf make.

Beyond that, it’s all about having fun and looking dapper while you’re at it. So, take a page from the Barneys book. Below, the team tells us what they’ll be wearing on the party circuit this year.


The Holidays are a great time to dig out the velvets and satins. Glamrock is your mot du jour.

I bought a lot of sparkly things this season: a sequined motorcycle jacket from Iro, an M. Patmos beaded tank and a Theyskens jumpsuit.  They’re always accompanied by a stack of Sidney Garber bracelets and Serge Lutens bright red lipstick.

I have a few formal events coming up and plan to wear a navy dinner jacket by Rake with their black trousers and tuxedo shirt.

For me, the best wardrobe during the holiday season is a sweater and a great pair of jeans.

I have two great Celine jumpsuits that I find myself rotating week in and week out during the holiday season. But I’m always everyone’s favorite guest when I arrive with a custom holiday cake from Charlotte Neuville (call 212-833-2426 to order)—it’s the ultimate hostess gift.

The Exemplaire navy cashmere cardigan with the black leather front panels is perfect for holiday parties—so much more comfortable than a blazer, yet very sleek and modern.

I love a tuxedo jacket—to throw over a dress or pair with pants. It makes for an easy transition from the office to any holiday festivity.
