It’s the week of Christmas. Gifts are wrapped, plans are locked in, now it’s time to figure out what you’re wearing on the most festive day of the year.
You’re seeing family, preparing food, playing holiday (or reindeer) games and you need a look that will last through it all (no, I don’t mean your Christmas tree PJs).
Because I have readers of all ages, I thought I would provide a little inspiration on holiday attire fit for all of the fabulous women in my life (and those reading).
One’s level of Fashionista cannot be measured by a number. 🙂
I’ll start with the Glam-ma’s of the world!
Mine is all about comfort but still loves to fit in with the ladies. I’ve recommended a number of stores at Tanger like Chico’s Outlet, Talbots and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, but her all-time favorite is Ann Taylor Factory Store.
She recently sent me the cutest selfie from the dressing room to show off her new finds. The outfit (and the selfie) got a gold star of approval – but she kindly asked me not to share here. (She’s not ready for all that fame!)
She found the chicest cape (pictured below). I recommended she wear it with black pants and a cream blouse or even a tee for comfort. I fully expect her to be sporting this on Christmas day.
Ann Taylor Factory Store | Tipped Poncho Cape | $79.99
Next up is Mom.
She’s not a big shopper so she depends on me to pick up things I see that might suit her. I’ve got to say, shopping for her (or anyone else in general) is so much more exciting than shopping for myself!
I’ve recently introduced her to the legging phenomenon and she can’t get enough! She needed more tops to pair with them. While I was out shopping for a few new candy crush pieces a few weeks ago I came across this super soft, oversized sweater from H&M.
The light pink will be so beautiful with her skintone. I’m also going to see if I can find a pair of wine leggings like the ones pictured (in t-minus 2 days). It’s such an awesome color combo. Ahh and a chic long necklace. She’s gonna be so stylin!
Then, there’s me!
The fam can always count on me to bring a little cheer to the day with my look. I won’t say that “themed” is my thing, but I definitely enjoy dressing for the season. I found the cutest outfit from Francesca’s, literally everything I plan to wear on Christmas day from head-to-toe.
Luckily, the weather is pretty mild here so I think I can get away with the dress. If there’s a chill in the air, I’ll just add a pair of cute tights. Then there’s the winning piece, the shearling coat! I’ve wanted one all season long and feel like all of my cozy dreams have come true! And last but not least, they had all of the perfect accessories – booties (with the fringe), an adorable saddle bag and the trendiest little suede choker that I ever did see. 🙂
I’m all set!
As you can see, dressing for the holidays doesn’t have to mean reds, greens and golds. Think sophisticated style and about the plans you have for the day. Comfort is usually a key factor (per my family’s style above), but yours might be different.
Let me know what your holiday plans are and I’ll be more than happy to send over a few helpful suggestions. 🙂
Happy shopping and HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone!
