Moll Anderson Helps You Build a Seductive Hostess Wardrobe

Michael Kors Gold Metallic Jeans

I love these fun jeans and I've been seeing them everywhere!

Tis the season for becoming the ultimate seductive hostess! I know it sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s easier than you think. I promise that if you follow my simple party-ready advice, you will never stand in front of your closet again before a party and say, “I have nothing to wear!”

You simply need to become party ready at all times with absolutely no stress for the entire year. A seductive hostess is always prepared for absolutely anything because you’ll always have on hand a few fail-safe, stunning cocktail outfits to fit any level of entertaining. Whether it’s a Christmas party, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa gatherings or just about any kind of get-together thrown your way.

Daring red tops, sparkly skirts, shimmering shoes, and festive dresses are a must to celebrate this merry time. As always, don’t procrastinate. That’s a drama builder! There is nothing worse than waiting until the last minute to figure out what you’ll be wearing. So here are a few of my personal favorites. Think simple metallic flats or a favorite pair of Louboutin’s. Everywhere you look you’ll find gorgeous shoes at all different price points. Be inspired by the ones in the catalog that are pricey and then seek out affordable look-alikes. For comfortable easy entertaining, how about slipping into jeans and a fabulous sequin top? I adore all the metallic jeans sold everywhere and they look great with a simple, black blouse, flats or pumps. Always have a little black dress that you look and feel terrific in. You can dress it up or down in seconds with your jewelry.

Gold sparkling top

A sparkling top and flats are great when paired with trousers, jeans or a skirt!

Hair should always be pulled away from your face—think chignon. Go for a high ponytail—it’s easy, sophisticated and it keeps hair out of the way (it also takes a few years off any seasoned hostess).

You need to actually enjoy entertaining this holiday season. Let go and become a seductive hostess who exudes joy and welcoming warmth as you share your home with friends and family.

What are you waiting for?

    I never realized that I needed a pair of shiny gold jeans, but now I feel like I do. They’re so cute!

    Moll, Any ideas for us short haired gals to glam up our hairstyle for the holidays?

    The good news is it sounds like I have all the pieces for a holiday wardrobe, but I don’t always take the time to put them all together. I just use a new event as a reason to go shopping! :)

    Great article! Seems like the last thing I think about when I’m having people over is what I’m going to wear! So true that it’s helpful to think ahead!!

    I love the sparkly jeans, but where can you find these under $50 since they can’t really go into daily rotation.

    I almost always go for dressing up a LBD, but I love the idea of using metallics as a base!
