This first look is my favorite and would work easily for a holiday party or a night on the town. The top (which should be tucked in) does come in other colors but I liked the soft pink paired with the black and ivory skirt. (Tights could also be added if you like.)
This second look adds a bit more color with this dark red top (tucked in, of course), and I could see this outfit easily transitioning from work to a holiday party.
I always love the idea of a slim sweater with a pencil skirt (very Jennifer Aniston), and this grey version from Express would work perfectly.
Another great option for date night - this flouncy top from Ann Taylor Loft is a little flirty and so cute in person.
And finally, another one of my favorites - the classic black fitted turtleneck OR a blousy black silk shirt. Both are classic and in my opinion, incredibly chic (and really allow the gorgeous lace detailing on the skirt to stand out).
