Hello! There are just THREE more days until Christmas! I am beyond thrilled. By the time you are reading this, I’ll have just gathered with family and will be off to a day full of errands and hangouts. Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the year; the true festivities unfold and there is a palpable anticipation of more traditions to come.
I hope you all have a beautiful holiday filled with love and comfort. No matter the occasion fancy or casual, I put together a curated style guide that will fit the need for whatever gathering you will be apart of whether it’s a fancy party, casual get-together, or traveling. These outfits are perfect for the holidays and definitely versatile for other all events throughout the year.
Two weeks ago I found this genuine Pendleton plaid flannel at a thrift shop and was thrilled at this find. It’s a men’s shirt so it’s quite oversized on me, however, I love the generous fit. It works as a hybrid between a tunic and a cardigan, and it’s great for layering. Plus, the flannel keeps me warm during chilly mornings. It doesn’t get more festive than red and green flannel!
This outfit would be perfect for casual family and/or friends’ get-togethers, unwrapping presents on Christmas morning, or going to the movies (a new family tradition of mine). I paired the button-up with a soft, thermal dress, sheer tights, killer combat boots (heeled version optional), and a touch of delicate jewelry, and you’re good to go. I love the toughness of the combat boots paired with a men’s shirt. Just keep the based layer slightly fitted or even belt it at the waist for a more feminine silhouette.
This outfit is perfect for getting all those last-minute holiday errands done, casual hangouts, lounging at home, traveling to a new destination, and everything in between. The hero piece of this look is definitely this gray and blush letterman jacket. Unlike other iterations, this one is soft and made of a light wool material, which provides warmth and drapes around the body without looking boxy. This jacket has so many thoughtful details including the contrasting black and white collar and wrist cuffs, the rose gold zipper, and the floral embroidery.
To keep the jacket the star of the show, I paired it will a simple white tee, slightly distressed blue jeans, and comfortable faux leather sneakers.
This one…this is my favorite. This look would be perfect for a fancy Christmas party or even a New Years Eve soiree (sans sparkle needed). Although I can always go for a good neutral, this canary mustard color is gorgeous. I adore the unique but complementary pairingof mustard, chartreuse, and nude. The contrasting colors down the entire center of the dress helps to slim and elongate. The straps are delicate and thin with a lace-up detail in the front. The defined waist helps to create shape amid the ruffles and pleating details. I love the slight feminine V shape in the back that exposes the shoulder blades and a hint of the back. The slight variance in the dress length also makes it fun and fluttery. There is so much going on yet it all works together without looking contrived. I paired this look with nude stilettos and long, delicate gold earrings. After searching for stilettos that give height without being too high (or low) and gives a streamline look, I’ve finally found them with this pair.
Those are my looks! I have had so much fun styling these outfits. For more daily style and beauty inspiration as well as to see what I’m up to during the holidays, check out my Instagram.
