Like much of the world, I first took note of British beauty Felicity Jones when she wore the above icy lavendar confection to the Oscars last year. Some hated the McQueen dress, but I loved it for its shameless mix of classic, feminine drama and modern edge.
This chic combination seems to be a theme throughout Felicity’s wardrobe—and it’s a vibe I’m currently channeling for my holiday party looks. While a little black dress’ll always do the trick, why not take a bit of a risk and go all-out with a layered sequin look, oversized velvet bow tie or drop-waisted dress in a bright candy color? Bonobos gave me the kick I needed to get out of my styling rut thanks to their Wear No Doubts campaign.
Join me in stepping out of your sartorial comfort zone with one of the festive party outfits inspired by Felicity Jones’s style I’ve put together below! And just in case you’re still looking for gifts for the men in your life, check out the selection of men’s pants over at Bonobos.
