Holiday Outfit: Out on the Tinsel Town

Linnea White

'Tis the season for holiday outfit inspiration, and this time, it's all about spice (see ya lata, sugar!). This hot little black leather dress came in last week, and I knew exactly what to do - take it out on the Tinsel Town - literally, because I threw tinsel around downtown.

This leather dress is the perfect combination of class and sass. The classic fit & flare silhouette of the dress tames the otherwise wild leather cutout and silver zipper front. It shouts of poise and confidence, and rockin' party vibes. The perfect combination with this number is a pair of eye-catching metallic pumps, like this Banana Republic pair.

Since the dress and silver shoes do enough talking, I kept the accessories simple, but still in the same sassy lane - hexagon studs paired with climbers for my second hole. Add a bold red lip and you've got one dance-the-night-away outfit for your next holiday fete.

So, I double dog dare you: try leather this holiday season - either an entire dress, a leather skirt, a leather jacket, or leather accessories to give an otherwise sweet silhouette a sassy touch.
