Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays

With the holidays mere hours away for some, we compiled a few last minute looks for the rest of your festivities & winter weather.

Family Dinner
Tonight & tomorrow bring huge family dinners for lots of us. Staying close to home typically means staying slightly casual. Sweater dresses with messy buns and suede heels are always a favorite. Throw some long necklaces, cuff bangles, drop earrings, and grab a clutch to complete the look. Riding pants, a silk cami, a cute peacoat, black pumps, and slight accesories is an easy go-to outfit to keep you warm yet comfortable. Staying with the family means keeping clothing modest but doesn't mean you have to sacrifice fashion to do so.

Holiday Party
Holiday cocktail partys have only just begun. With New Years celebrations around the corner, it means a new dress or reviving one from the back of your closet. Long sleeve silk dresses are easy to dress down or up and will keep you cool once in the midst of the party. (Booties look good with just about anything, especially these dresses). For a more elegant look, use your little black dress with a sequined or eye-catching jacket, a cute clutch, and simple shoes. As for your more casual parties, stick to nice form-fitted pants, a silk or sequined top, a fitted jacket, crossbody bag, heels and some jewelry to finish it off. Sequins & glitter are so acceptable this time of the year. Own it.

Night Out on the Town
For a festive girl's night , try some trends that still say "holiday cheer" without having to wear a red or green dress like everybody else. Sequins scream holiday like the tinsel by your mantle, so take a unique approach with sequined shorts or skirts over tights, or maybe a sequined romper. Girls, when wearing tights in cold weather, I recommend wearing them over a pair of nude tights, so it looks like skin but you maintain some warmth! Bows also remind us of holiday (opening presents, hello!) so subtly place them throughout your outfit. Remember to stay warm with a cape, peacoat, or blazer and a nice hat (berets are personal favorites.) Lastly, make sure your outfit isnt to dark or heavy by having at least one pop of bright color, whether its from your tights, jewelry, lipstick, or whatever.

Comfy Cozy
When its cold outside, all you want to do is cuddle up in a big sweater and leggings. A lot of the times I end up going to school like that and feeling like a total slob. But you dont need to sacrifice fashion for the comfy cozy feeling. Try a big sweatshirt or a cable-knit sweater (check the nearest male closet) with a pair of festive patterned leggings or tights. Finish it off with a pair of warm boots or moccasins and a scarf and hat in a complementing color. As for jewelry, keep it light with a single pendent necklace if anything and maybe some stud earrings.

Our holiday wishes go out to you and yours. Hope Santa treats you right.
