As invitations to holiday parties pile up, we're gently reminded of all the fun and festivities that this time of year brings. And, inevitably, every girl must ask herself one question: What will I wear??
This year, I've decided to take a cue from Drew. Ms. Barrymore arrived on the set of David Letterman's show looking polished, fashionable and ladylike. I couldn't wait to recreate her stylish combo! (Though I will avoid recreating her flashing scene on Letterman a few years ago...) Who couldn't love the an unassuming long sleeve tee adorned with flashy sequins?! Or sleek black silk pants that pair just as easily with sequins at night as they do with cotton button-downs during the day?! And we can't avoid mentioning those wonderfully neutral yet interesting gray suede pumps.
Of course, to pull off Drew's look, simple hair, make-up and accessories are in order as to avoid the Vegas showgirl effect. Hair worn down and looking natural is beautiful on Drew but a sleek ponytail would work just as well. Keep the make-up palette neutral and neat and stick to one stand-out accessory, if that!
Now, for the clothes! How about this tee from J. Crew with some luxurious silk pants and a pair of textured pumps?

As an alternative, a patterned sequin top would be sassy and fun with leather leggings. The leather still gives off the shine but adds some edge to the outfit. Patent leather platforms would also be a must.

I'll be recreating this very look myself for an engagement party this Saturday. Stay tuned to see how Barrymore I can be!
