Bundle up in style

As the holidays are drawing near, everyone’s calendars are most likely beginning to fill up with holiday events and gatherings.

The one time to go all out in shimmer and glitz is New Years Eve, unless you’re like me and prefer to wear a little something bedazzled with every outfit. Otherwise, there are two words to keep in mind when dressing for the holidays: simple and elegant.

A casual yet trendy look for this winter season is a pair of white skinny jeans paired with a loose gray tee under a black blazer. To top off this outfit, add a patterned scarf with a pair of round-toed heels.

Dresses seen on the runway this holiday season are mainly fitted or pleated in the colors of red or black, and some are worn with a wide belt.

An essential piece for everyone’s wardrobes this winter is a good winter jacket or coat. The North Face is advertising its jackets that hit just below the knee in length. This urban look is great because it keeps you even warmer than the fleece jackets that have become so popular.

Celebrities are also wearing knit ponchos this season, which are cozy and an easy cover-up.

A last suggestion to keep in mind this holiday season is to save up Christmas money to buy a nice designer bag in a color that will go with everything. This way, you can wear it with every outfit!
