The easiest, three-piece combinations to see you through party season

We’ve reached the end of the year and the inevitable slew of functions that give this November-December period its ‘party season’ rep. And while you might start sweating at the thought of having to buy a variety of occasion-worthy outfits, the key to surviving the season, really, is ease.

So, in the name of killing multiple birds with a single stone, we have compiled a quick edit of trendy trios from the multi-brand lineup at Workshop that you can wear as separates or combine to create the framework for event-appropriate ensembles. Don’t miss the frivolous spirit of the season by focusing on sartorial stress. Simply throw on a jacket or slide into a comfortable heel and let your hair down — it’s a party, after all.
