How-to slay at holiday parties this season

I'm super excited to partner up with Hanes today on SS for a fun post on holiday survival.  I'll be sharing my 5 must-haves with y'all.  I promise you'll slay at any and every fancy function with the following...
1.  A sexy dress - show off your stems and sport a fabulous mini this season.  I'm wearing a gorg fringe dress from ASOS today on SS.  I copped it a few weeks ago online while it was on sale for $44.  Y'all know how I feel about bargain buys!  Stores like Charlotte Russe, H&M, and Macy's carry trendy designs for affordable prices.

2.  Hanes tights - Since it's cold as f***, it's important to bundle up!  If you sport a mini, you're def. gonna want to throw on tights.  I can't recommend Hanes enough!  They offer much more than extra warmth. I'm wearing a sheer version below, but Hanes sells opaque styles as well. Pair them with the right shoes, and you'll legs will look hella long, which transitions beautifully into...
3.  Black pumps - Honestly, black heels + black tights kill because they elongate your legs like whoa. I mean, who doesn't like a fabulous visual illusion? As a plus, black heels pretty much go with everything.  You can wear them to work or wear 'em out for a fab night out on the town.
4.  Statement Jewelry - it's no secret that jewelry can make or break an outfit!  I've always been a huge fan of statement jewelry, but dainty pieces can also do the trick.  For today's LOTD, I accessorized with a beautiful necklace, and it honestly makes all the difference in the world.  In case you were wondering, this stunning piece is from Lorraine Tyne.  If you're looking for affordable baubles, check out InPink, Charlotte Russe, and Baublebar.
5.  A killer clutch - last but not least, to complete your sexy holiday look, you'll need a BAMF clutch. The one I'm carrying below is actually from Charlotte Russe.  Their bags are really cute, and they're surprisingly durable.  FYI, mine's made of faux leather.  I'm also a huge fan of box clutches though!

A huge thank you to Hanes for kindly sponsoring this post.  All opinions are 100% honest and completely my own.
