It’s difficult to cover holiday outfits in one post. It’s on to Part 2. Today I created categories in widgets so you can create your own look. While more causal holiday looks seem to be the trend, I did include some dresses below. Jumpsuits are also extremely popular this year and considered just as as formal.
One of my clients contacted me about finding a dress for a holiday wedding that would be pretty formal. She ordered and had them sent to store so we can try and put the entire look together. This is a great option if you don’t want various boxes arriving at your door when you aren’t home (especially this time of year!) I’ve mentioned it before, but I really like the order on line, pick up in store option. They even open the boxes and recycle them for you! (at least at Nordstrom ) I really like how so many store are offering this service.
Let’s start with bottoms. Velvet is still there. Coated denim is everywhere. As I said in my previous post, if you decide to try the cropped flared denim. I think they look best with a pointed toe shoe or boot with at least a kitten heel.
Tops are shorter as we all know, so trying the full or partial tuck with a higher waisted pant will make it easier. It’s hard I know, but it can be done. If you are self-conscious with tucking make sure to style your look with a longer jacket, vest etc. It will help considerably. Keep the colors dark and choose a wider belt. If you feel more comfortable in longer tops, wear them. I’ll be there with you. I tucked my first top recently and it had been years!
Suede, leather and fur–it’s all there for jackets. Fur rules this year!
I’ll be adding jewelry and accessories in the Black Friday weekend posts.
Next up… Makeup!
