TIS’ THE SEASON: 5 HOLIDAY LOOKS!
Holiday season is among us, and we are set to prepare for Christmas and New Years celebrations. What are you wearing this holiday? If you have yet to put together a look, have no fear, I’m here to help. Whether you’re going to a family gathering, a work party, or New Years celebration, you want to look your best. Here are 5 Holiday Looks to help grasp inspiration.
Christmas Work Party
When preparing for a work party you want to keep your look conservative. Even though you will be outside of the workplace, you still want to make a good impression on your employees. When choosing an outfit, be sure to pick one that is appropriate for the occasion. Don’t be afraid to pick a look that shows your personality. You could also incorporate Christmas colors by wearing red & green accessories, such as earrings and shoes.

Christmas Eve Dinner
When deciding to what to wear for a family or friend’s Christmas Eve dinner, here’s your chance to wear your favorite outfit. While being amongst your loved ones, as opposed to a work environment, what you wear is no longer limited. You can pick a trend that you have always wanted to try and wear it. Here I chose the peplum trend, pairing it with a DIOR peplum blazor with maroon leggings, a Rebecca Taylor tweed blazer, and black ankle strap heels. To set off the holiday dinner look, I added a silver choker and matching clutch.

Christmas Day Family/Friend Gathering
After opening gifts Christmas morning, many people prepare to go visit their family at one spot for Christmas. When creating a look for a Christmas Family/Friend Gathering, it’s a good idea to be casual and comfortable. Considering you will be in this look for most of the day, you want to be over the top. A simple sweater to keep you warm with a pair of boyfriend jeans is a good choice. I added a fur vest and a pair of Dolce Vita Kana ankle strap heels to add personality to the look. If you’re in a very cool climate, it may be best to pair a cream colored booties with this look.

New Year’s Eve Party
Tonights the big night of the last day of the year, and everyone is wearing their best looks! Whether your New Year’s Eve is spent at the club, someone’s house, or at a gala, you want to look the part. This look I created was inspired for a New Year’s gala. During an event like this you are able be as girly and dressy as you like. I paired an a-line Dorthy Perkins dress with a white Steal or Free fur coat. To accessorize I added a pair of Judy Geib earring, white pointed toe heels, and a rhinestone Jimmy Choo clutch.

New Years Day Dinner
It’s the beginning of year and some of us may be attending a dinner to celebrate the New Year. Now is the time to start off the 2014 putting your best foot forward in fashion. While going through your closet to pick a look for tonight’s dinner, go with your first instinct. I encourage to put together a look of your own that describes your style. This New Years Day Dinner look inspiration was taken from my individual style. I’m a sucker for fedoras and blazers, therefore I had to incorporate them. I paired a gray leather-look blazer and black fedora, with geometric shorts and a Bardot crop tank. I added a pair of black opaque tights to keep warm, and Christian Louboutin booties to tie the look together.
