What to Wear to a Wine & Cheese Party During the Holidays

The perfect (and frankly, easiest) way to usher in the holidays? A wine and cheese party. Gather close friends and family, uncork a couple bottles of Ruffino reds and whites, put out a selection of cheese, display a few seasonal treats and — voilà — you’ve pulled off a classy soirée.

But a festive gathering requires an equally festive outfit. Complete your look with velvet loafers, high-shine sandals or embellished slides — shop our roundup of playful picks below.
