It’s that time of year, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve got a veritable sleigh-full of holiday parties coming up in the next few weeks. Figuring out what it means when the invite says “holiday chic” or “festive cocktail” can be enough to drive you straight to the eggnog, but I have a nearly fail-proof solution:

A denim or chambray shirt and a fun, fancy skirt. The three ladies above, Blair from Atlantic Pacific, Jacey from Damsel in Dior and Courtney from What Courtney Wore are all showing very different ways you can make this look work. Whether you want to layer, tuck in or tie at the waist – a denim shirt can balance out an over-the-top skirt for a perfect party ensemble.
