If you're calling it quits with sequins and velvet this year (perhaps after the fourth year in a row of waking up with glitter embedded in your pores), we suggest this striking alternative from Ports 1961. Festive? Yes. From another dimension? Possibly.
What better than a little alien-inspired chic at your Thanksgiving dinner, or some Mars Attacks! magic at the office holiday party. Strange though it may sound, it's exceedingly difficult to find party-perfect garb that's not just another sequin sheath something-or-other, which is why we applaud Ports' efforts to stand out from the shiny, velvety pack.
Paired with some pointy Proenza pumps or cool cage heels, we think this look is a perfect solution to predictable holiday dressing. Try with a big silver cuff for a look that's truly out of this world.
