For the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing several holiday-inspired looks. Funny enough, it’s been a long time since I’ve attended a holiday soiree. It’s for this very reason that I recommend not overspending when looking for your holiday outfit and purchasing items that can work long after the holidays.
Fashion Tip: When shopping for your holiday attire, think functional. Take the faux fur coat for example. Instead of investing in a coat, consider a fur vest or scarf to throw over a dress or skirt. Both options can be worn after the holidays with jeans or a more casual look.
A Versatile Holiday Outfit + Where to Shop
Dress: Velour is apparently back in style! I can’t help but think of the infamous Juicy tracksuit and my husband’s snide comment “ain’t no one wearing velour!”, but this dress is surprisingly super cute AND has pockets. The length is perfect and I love the burgundy color. The fabric is also really soft and comfortable. I love how you can manage to still look cute and be semi-warm.
Fashion Tip: When shopping for a holiday dress, go for an LBD (little black dress), or something in a wine or burgundy color. Both colors are great for the holidays, but can be worn on other occasions too. Red is also good depending on the style. Look for a more versatile frock rather than one that screams Christmas, unless that’s what you’re going for then, by all means, do you!
Boots: I needed a casual holiday shoe since I live in Seattle and the weather is unpredictable. I opted for these bronze boots that I’m obsessed with and can wear all winter long. They look super cute with a dress. Bonus points that they’re a comfort shoe and are available in a wide range of sizes.
Accessories: If you want to purchase something that is more on the festive side, I recommend buying a statement necklace or purse. You can get these type of things at a lower price that won’t break the bank. This necklace is perfect for the holidays and inexpensive. The black clutch is not festive, but I have literally worn it with everything from an LBD to jeans. Look at places like Charming Charlie, DSW, Target, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and even Forever21 for inexpensive options.
