Festive Holiday Fashion
I’m a girl who can hardly wait to put up the tinsel and holly, so it is a joy to share some of my favorite holiday fashion picks with you.
The most influential word of the season is definitely “sequin.” Whether itâs a fabulous embellished blazer, a black sequined legging and a white menswear inspired poplin or a micro-mini and sheer tights, you can achieve the perfect holiday frock without dipping too much into your gift fund! The key to perfecting this look is mixing those sparkly pieces with the edgy accents you already own. Some of your fall staples can translate beautifully into your holiday party ensembles. Shop your closet for a black boyfriend blazer, motorcycle jacket, white button down, jumpsuits, booties and tights. You can pair a sequined blazer with a white tee, your boyfriend jeans from summer and an edgy booty. Or, make a basic black boyfriend blazer transition into holiday by pairing it with a silk jumpsuit and a fabulous rhinestone statement necklaceâ¦another must have of the season. Personally, I canât get enough of rhinestone baubles, especially vintage bracelets. They just give your wrists the right amount of frosting for the holidays. And last but definitely not least, top off a cocktail dress with a studded motorcycle jacket; itâs such an unexpected new take on traditional threads.
Have yourself a very sparkly Christmas with great style and all the trimmings!
