Holiday Classics For Any Seasonal Celebration
Some outfits work for nearly any occasion you find yourself headed to, from Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve and everything in between. These are tried and true to carry you through the party season and beyond.
Mumbai Maxi Dress, Memphis Shapes Black
The Mumbai Maxi Dress is elegant, pocketed, and comfortable. What's not to love? I wear so many maxi dresses in the winter because they can keep you a lot warmer than you might think! Take advantage of the volume in the skirt and wear a hidden pair of leggings underneath - an essential life hack for those in the mountains or Midwest!
Glendale V-Neck Dress, Burgundy
The Glendale V-Neck Dress is another favorite festive pick of mine. This cutie has a just-short-enough hemline and subtle flounce to keep it fun, but it’s classy and oh-so-ready for family or office gatherings.
Darcie Bodysuit, Burgundy Floral Print
Reese Velvet Trousers, Navy
I’ve also found some great two-piece ensembles that can do double-time through multiple parties this winter. Pair the Darcie Bodysuit with the sumptuous and cozy Reese Velvet Trousers for a look that is polished and low-key.
Eve Wide Leg Trousers, Black
Mezi Studs, Gold
Emily Bag, Ruby
Glam Looks To Bring Some Heat To A Cold Season
Elise Dress, Black
Tunic Dress, Zoe Black
Gracie Dress, Red
For warmth, opt for a slouchy open cardigan like the Wisteria Sweater - it’s cozy, but in a sexy way, y’know?
Wisteria Sweater, Stone
Odetta Earrings, Gold + Black
The Odetta Earrings add some foxy kapow and the Connie Crossbody lets you make a cool entrance with a clutch, but lets you sneak the strap out as the night goes on to give yourself the ease of a crossbody.
Connie Crossbody, Caramel + Black
Staying In With Family And Friends (And Hot Cocoa. And Cookies.)
Aditi Wrap Dress, Sunset Spice Plum
For family gatherings or dinners with friends, I like to prioritize my ability to eat second helpings, so I steer clear of anything too fitted in the torso. Aesthetics are not the only element of personal style! The Aditi Wrap Dress and the Artsy Traveler Midi Dress are colorful, fun options that have an adjustable wrap tie or elastic bodice to get the fit that feels most comfy.
Artsy Traveler Midi Dress, Eucalyptus Spice
Willow Blouse, Santi Red
Speaking of colors, allow me to make a case for bright pink this holiday season. I love that this hue is undeniably festive while also a departure from the traditional colors of any specific holiday.
Sea Jumpsuit, Hibiscus
Felipa Belt Bag, Tawny Fronds Embroidery
Baroque Hoops, Gold
Festive On The Fly: 5:30pm Celebrations
Corey Rib Dress, Black
Artsy Traveler Dress, Black Denim
For me, the most challenging holiday occasions to dress for are quick drinks and work parties that occur right after the work day ends. Set yourself up for success by starting the day in a simple black dress like the Artsy Traveler Dress or the Corey Rib Dress.
Sinead Open Jacket, Farrah Multi
Ethereal Drop Earrings, Gold
Horizon Earrings, Brass
When 5 o’clock rolls around, slip on the Sinead Open Jacket for some brightness and add sparkly accessories like the Ethereal Drop Earrings, Horizon Earrings, or coordinate fully with the bold Teko Earrings and Teko Necklace.
