Women's holiday style guide 2018

How to dress up and down with a bodysuit and a pair of earrings

Instead of the typical LBD and pearls, try the fresh pairing of versatile bodysuits with statement earrings.

“Bodysuits make for an alluring component to a holiday outfit because they are fitted and show off your shape,” says New York City and Silicon Valley-based stylist Joseph Rosenfeld.

Mix and match them with other pieces in your wardrobe for various party looks—and streamline your holiday travel packing by bringing multiple bottoms for one bodysuit. Use the earrings to add a fancy feel to anything in your suitcase.

Ahead, four pairings to get you started.

Show off athletic shoulders with this racer-cut neckline. A deep merlot velvet fabric is holiday-appropriate and on this season’s trend toward lush textures. “On bottom, you could wear a cool vintage high-waisted jean or a high-waisted silk palazzo pant,” says Tiffany Gifford, a Nashville-based stylist.
