Holiday party season is here which means it's time to scour your closet and favorite stores for the perfect party looks. With all the styles of parties (casual, party, formal), It's hard to come up with multiple one-of-a-kind looks. Luckily, Whitney Pozgay's collection, Whit, has provided us with a runway full of inspiration.

The Whit Fall 2011 collection was inspired by "a girl playing dress up." To this end, Pozgay focused on playing with proportion and detail to create a ladylike feel. The collection is filled with simple yet statement-making ensembles that are perfect for making an entrance at any holiday party.

This look perfectly toes the line between casual and fun. The metallic pants give it a fun, unexpected feel while the perfect striped sweater keeps it casual. Here, Pozgay has created a look that is perfect for day or night.

Getting the Look

To recreate this casual-chic party look, start with these metallic tweed trousers and pair them with a navy striped sweater. Accessorize with basic black pumps and a fringe chain necklace. For a bag, try a unique studded "egg"-shaped clutch. Add a bit of edge to the look with this two-toned leather jacket, and finish with a red lip.

Look #2: Winter-ize Your Shorts

Shorts aren't typically considered cold weather wear, but when layered correctly, as seen here, they become winter-perfect. Above Pozgay creates a look that styles shorts perfectly for the winter. Thanks to details like thigh-high socks, shiny oxfords, and a pretty cardigan, this look has a chic, school girl feel.

Getting the Look
