We'll admit: we're usually dressing for our girlfriends. So, how do you get the attention of every other woman in the room? For the friend's holiday party, it goes something like this: statement top, cool-girl denim, sexy heels, enviable accoutrements. With a pal's bash, your mom's not there to scold you for the rips in your jeans — on the contrary, your lady friends know that those jeans are right on trend and make the perfect counterpart to offset your sparkly top. This is the holiday occasion that lets you get festive without censoring your trendier side. By all means, pull out your feathered clutch, jewel-drop earrings, and sky-high heels. Get started with the inspiration below, and remember to have fun with this one!
