{ Alexa Chung in NYC recently, Jenna Lyons at the Met Gala in 2011 }

I came upon the above image of Alexa Chung (in Marc Jacobs) on Pinterest last week, and it's been haunting me ever since. In gearing up for the holiday season's parade of parties, I've been considering how to dress up in ways that feel fancy, fashionable and like me. I love a good high-low mix, and the idea of pairing a really dressy skirt with a really comfortable sweater is pretty much exactly that mix. I mean, right?

While getting my hands on a feathered maxi skirt seems a loft goal at the moment, there are SO many little sequined things (and their cozy counterparts) available from contemporary and high-street brands we love, like Zara, Uniqlo, Topshop and J. Crew. Behold:

  1. I love this look! A sequin skirt has to be my next purchase - I'm loving that topshop one.
