As this year-unlike-any-other comes to a welcome end, many of us will be celebrating the upcoming holidays in some way. Regardless of our plans, I still plan to dress up out of respect for tradition and simply because it makes me feel special. Wearing a sequin top inspires me to want to have a dance party, even if it is in the kitchen by myself! It is especially important right now to find ways to feel attractive and help elevate our mood, and a festive velvet, metallic or sequin top can do just that. Pair that flirty blouse with your favorite denim or elevated joggers and you will look fabulous and feel comfortable, whether you are having a quiet New Year’s Eve celebration with your partner or an intimate family Christmas or Hanukkah dinner.
Here are my top ten pics for chic blouses guaranteed to help you get your holiday mojo on. Lots of velvet and sequin styles are still fully stocked as I write, which is unusual to find in December. All of my selections, many of which are under $100, are from Bloomingdales, which is having their Friends & Family sale going on this week.
