Carmen Lilly: Wardrobe Stylist & Personal Shopping Consultant 

Dressing up for holiday affairs takes some thought for most people — but if you happen to be one of the fashion industry’s flyest, it’s second nature. So, in the season of company parties and cocktail soirees, it only makes sense to take a few cues from one of my favorite style mavens, Carmen Lilly (better known as @stylecarmen). Before your next RVSP, remember Carmen’s top 3 holiday party must-haves illustrated by the melanin-rich beauties below!

This luxe fabric says “I am the life of the party.” From blazers, dresses, clutches and suits, it’s definitely a must-have for the season. Don’t be afraid to try it in a rich burgundy for a sultry look.

3. Conversation Piece [Clutch, Jewelry, or Shoe]
