Holiday day-to-night style is all about your accessories, says ‘Pretty Little Liars’ star Janel Parrish
’Tis the season to hit holiday parties. And Janel Parrish is all for it, as the Pretty Little Liars star is a pro at transitioning a daytime look into twilight chic.
A Tweed coat adds fall/winter flair to any outfit and eBay has a huge selection, such as this oversized jacket from Free People.
Dramatic earrings like this pair from Kendra Scott lend you instant sophistication from the neck up, and can easily take an outfit from day to night. There’s no shortage of stunners on eBay.
For Parrish, it’s about holiday style without going full Mrs. Claus. Going to a lunch date, she’ll pair a little red dress with flats and cool hoop earrings, and pull her hair back into a high pony. `
“If I wanted to wear the same dress that night, I would put on some high heels and metallic stud earrings. And then throw a cute faux fur jacket, like the NWT Free People Mena Faux Fur Jacket, on top of that, just to glam it up a bit for nighttime. I’d also take the ponytail out and fluff my hair a little bit,” she explains.
Cuddly and chic, faux fur coats convey relaxed luxury — like this NWT Free People Mena Faux Fur Jacket. It’s long-sleeved, slightly cropped and utterly on-trend. Stock up on eBay.
No Christmas is complete without the requisite festive sweater, be it ugly or not. Parrish wears hers with jeans — but then come nighttime, “I would maybe change my pants to black pants, with high heels. And something more bold in the jewelry department, like a gorgeous bracelet,” she says.
A stunning bangle (eBay has tons!) can bring any outfit to the next level. Case in point: This David Yurman Cable Classics Bracelet with Black Onyx, a twisted helix that adds oomph to any outfit.
Parties aside, Christmas is about shopping and more shopping, something that’s challenging to do when your feet hurt. “You’re always hustling around,” says Parrish, and comfort is crucial. For that, she turns to her trusty Adidas kicks, a key part of her go-to daytime holiday uniform of jewel-tone knits and denim.
Released in 1969, the Adidas Originals Women’s Superstar shoes remain a style favorite thanks to its retro-modern vibe. Kick back on eBay and pick the right pair for you.
But Parrish enjoys the fact that the season gives her a reason to dress to the nines. “Sometimes there are these holiday industry parties where they want everybody to be in their best holiday glam. In that case, I turn to sparkly, metallic dresses to show my glamorous Christmas side,” she says.
No matter what she’s wearing, Parrish knows what really matters.
“Getting all decked out for the holidays, baking and bringing stuff to people’s houses, going to parties and spending time with your favorite people and celebrating the season, I love all of that!” she proclaims.
As do we.
