I wore this pretty all-black ensemble to a fun event at the Instagram offices in New York with NET-A-PORTER! I tried on this top a couple months ago when it first came out, but decided not to buy it at the time… but I couldn’t stay away. I saw it again a few weeks ago and decided to make the investment! It is such a gorgeous top that is both sophisticated and modern, and I love how it helps conceal one of my problem areas that I generally like to cover up: my hips. At least on one side!! I love the idea of forgoing the usual cocktail dress for this top and leather pants combo to wear to a holiday party! It’s a cool way to mix things up, don’t you think?

If you’re looking for similar pieces to shake things up with your holiday party wardrobe, don’t miss the finds below! I’ve rounded up some favorites at a variety of price points:

  • Love the subtle open-back on this under $40 sequin top!
  • This lace top is only $60 and looks so nice! Love the high neckline.
  • This top is another investment piece, but it is SO pretty in person!! So obsessed with the beaded illusion neckline. Want something similar under $100? Try this.
  • The sequin embellishments on this cami look expensive! Luckily it’s actually only $40! Throw a black blazer over this with black jeans and you’ve got a killer going out look.
  • If you’re into polka dots, don’t miss this!
  • This navy satin blouse has the most beautiful twisted detail at the neckline! Under $60.
  • This velvet puff-sleeve top is so much fun! The crystal appliques add a fun sparkle to it.
  • Here’s another similar style to the Self-Portrait blouse I linked above for $108! Also love this and this.
  • IF you don’t mind a splurge, don’t miss this, this or this.
