I am a huge (and I mean HUGE) advocate for dressing up. Nothing quite beats the feeling of slipping on a party dress or gown and some killer heels. But a lot of times the occasion doesn’t call for all that jazz… so what to wear? When you’re going somewhere more on the casual side but still want to kick it up a few notches try pairing a classic comfy tee with some sparkle, leather, or both! Try these combinations if you want a little oomph without looking like you tried too hard.
