If you are lucky to have a standout holiday invite coming up, you might want to dress appropriately. While I tend to go minimalist almost 365, there are days (especially nights) when going all-out is not only festive, it often makes those who know you well do a double take. (Surprising people, and being the center of attention for at least a couple of minutes, has its allure.) I love the holiday approach to dressing at The Line and would take any and all they have to offer. (See link here for their edit.) But what I love even more, is the glamorous styling (by Vanessa Traina) on Malgosia Bela (a favorite model of mine). Why not elaborate lacy tights and some Manolo slides? Of course, lace tights are not so easy to find anymore. They feel slightly 80s, which is also why I like them, they’re unexpected. I think the ones featured in the photo are Fogal. Wolford has a gorgeous lace version as well.
