J.Crew Tissue Turtleneck Tee ($34.50), Open-Shawl Collar Cardigan ($138), Broken-In Boyfriend Jean in Abbott Wash ($89.99), Cece Metallic Ballet Flats ($135)
A cozy get-together with family calls for a relaxed but still chic outfit. Go for comfort in easy layers, like a turtleneck sweater under a chunky cardigan and boyfriend jeans or leggings and a long tunic. You’ll be totally comfortable, but will still look great for the inevitable family pictures! J.Crew and the GAP are great stores to hit up for casual pieces.
COCKTAILS WITH FRIENDS
Whether you’re hitting the town with your girls or grabbing a drink with your coupled friends, you need a go-to look for toasting to the holiday season. Grab your favorite pair of dark skinny jeans, and add some glitz with a sequined top. A pair of heeled booties and a cross-body bag will finish off the outfit. Keep the accessories simple here – let your sequin top do all the talking!
Kate Spade Selma Dress ($328), Grand Debut Gems Necklace ($248), On Purpose Madison Avenue Clutch ($398), Noland Heels ($398)
The annual office holiday party can be a tricky event to dress for. Go for celebratory, but not excessive. A little black dress is a great wardrobe essential to have all the time, but especially this time of year. Accessorize your LBD with a festive jewelry, like a sparkly statement necklace or chandelier earrings (but not both)! If the event is after work, toss a clutch in your everyday tote in the morning for an easy transition to the party.
FANCY HOLIDAY PARTY
If you’ve got a fancy holiday affair on the calendar this year, don’t be afraid to turn up the glamour! Instead of a too-tight, too-short number, look for a shift dress that’s heavy on elegance and embellishments. Ann Taylor has a wide selection of dresses that strikes the perfect balance between festive and classic.
