Holiday season - one of my favorite times of year - has arrived!
So bring on the snowflakes, Christmas lights, the scent of pine, hot chocolate, fuzzy pajamas, baking, Christmas music, quality time with loved ones...and holiday parties! Whether it be a small gift exchange with friends, a traditional family celebration, or a big corporate affair, these annual gatherings can be a fun excuse to dress up and wear festive apparel.
I love the holidays, but it's sad to me that the gospel meaning behind Christmas has gotten so drowned out by consumption. I'm all for gift giving (and certainly not opposed to a good deal), but after being bombarded by two weeks of post-Thanksgiving sales, I feel like my brain is about to explode. I mean, how much is too much?
With all of this chaotic buying and selling going on, it can be so easy to make just one more purchase: a stylish new outfit for the upcoming seasonal events. But before you take that step and hand over the cash, consider some of these key pieces, most of which are probably hiding in your closet!
Try it with some bling, a cozy scarf, or plaid tights if you're feeling whimsical.
RED OR GREEN ACCESSORIES
Add some refined festiveness to your outfit by using variations of these colors, like burgundy, brick red, teal, or forest green.
CLASSIC WOOL COAT
Whether belted, buttoned, or oversized, it's the perfect way to be stylish and stay warm on a chilly night.
Intricate cables, shimmery metallic yarns, or luxurious cashmere are all welcome.
COZY FASHION BOOTS
The chic version of practical snow footwear.
Complete your outfit with some elegant and very holiday-appropriate sparkle.
What other essential pieces do you think work well for holiday parties?
Thanks for stopping by!
