    Style Influencer Kinya Claiborne's Top 5 Holiday Picks


    Holiday party invites starting to roll in? A little black dress is always on par for the party scene, but why not slay in an elevated party look that’s bold or sparkly. Whether it’s a girls night out, celebrating with coworkers or attending a red carpet affair, 'tis the season to pull out all the major party looks. From velvet to lace and show-stopping sequins, go bold on the party scene this holiday season to stand out from the crowd and help you nail a spot on the best-dressed holiday list.


    1) Rani Slit Gown

    When the invite says cocktails, you definitely want to step up the sparkle— the holidays are about being extra, after all! This dazzling, draped sequin gown hugs curves in all the right places with a thigh-high slit. Stylish and sophisticated, this dress is sure to make you stand out while the long sleeves provide extra coverage and warmth for those cold winter nights.


    2) Neesha Velvet Jumpsuit

    Given the potentially chilly temps, a jumpsuit is always a good option for holiday parties. Don’t worry about looking too casual. Make a seasonal statement in this navy velvet jumpsuit. Add statement accessories and a clutch to achieve a fully turned-out look.



    3) Alvar Gown

    Wrap yourself up in a bow because your presence is the ultimate present!

    Be merry in this elegant emerald green velvet gown featuring an off-the-shoulder statement-making sculpted bow. To ensure you don’t appear overly formal when wearing a long dress, be sure to keep accessories minimal for the perfect party look.


    4) Chan Midi Dress

    Nothing says holiday party quite like an ultra femme red sheath dress. The ornate embroidery with peekaboo high-low hemline is a classic holiday mix, but never feels tired. Add a faux fur coat and you've got a glam party look that you can re-wear again for New Year's Eve. 


    5) Kolab Gown

    Sometimes you'll need something that's a bit more formal than a cocktail dress, however holiday parties doesn’t mean just red, green, and sequins. This one-shoulder mix of black and metallic print is just as festive, and one you'll want to wear year round. Did I mention, this dress even has pockets! Strappy heels and a playful bag to complete the polished-from-head-to-toe party look.
