Holiday Styles You Can Wear Again and Again

Trust me. I love a statement-making holiday dress. But, this holiday season, I’m favoring fabulous separates that I can style, restyle, and wear all season long. I shared the many ways I’ve been wearing my fringe mini skirt in this post. Today, I’m sharing a look featuring separates that can easily anchor so many holiday styles.

From the office to the office party, a white button-up shirt always looks crisp and chic. Wear it with everything from jeans to a mini skirt. Talking about a mini skirt, a luxe faux-leather skirt with this silhouette looks good with t-shirts (picture a stripe tee), turtleneck sweaters, off-the-shoulder tops, and so much more. And, the accessories? Can you say go-with-E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G?

How to Wear a Velvet Blazer During the Day

One of the things I love about the holiday season is that all things glitz and glam become everyday wear. And, I’m so here for that. Leather, sequins, velvet, you name it, you can wear whatever you like. A velvet blazer, in  particular, is an especially easy luxe item to rock during the day and the night. Here are two simple ways I’ve been rocking my velvet blazer during the day.

How to Create Fabulous High-Low Holiday Style

Fabulous holiday style doesn’t have to break the bank. I’ve shared my top tips for maximizing your party season style by shopping off-price stores (see that post here). Today’s post is all about mixing high-end items with more affordable pieces to create that perfect high-low mix. My top tips for mastering that mix are below.

Gucci belt | J.Crew pumps  (option, option)

How to Master that Perfect High-Low Holiday Style

1. Save on trends: Choosing wisely what you splurge and save on is important. Save on trends that are likely to cycle in and out quickly. I’m a huge fan of this season’s statement sleeve tops, but next season, I’ll probably be into something else. This affordable eshakti top, which retails for only $39, nails the trend and looks luxurious because I had it customized for my best fit.

2. Know what looks luxe. Developing a discerning eye for fabric, fit, and silhouette will make you a pro at choosing low-end items that look like a million bucks.

3. Elevate an outfit with accessories. Accessories are often great splurge items because you can get a lot of mileage out of them. You can constantly wear the same designer bag, shoes, or belt and look fresh every time. In addition, adding a high-end accessory to affordable pieces often elevates the overall look.

4. Stay true to your style. Always buy items that make you look and feel good. Money spent, whether a little or a lot, on any item that doesn’t make you feel your best is a waste.
