Memories are made as family and friends come together for filling meals, intimate gatherings and posh parties over the holiday season. Whether you’re dressing up for an elegant affair, or keeping cozy for a casual dinner after a long day of traveling to your far away loved-ones, you can look holiday ready in some of this season’s most cheer-worthy trends.
1 • COZY KNITS
Sweater weather is finally here. The temperature is cooling down, and it takes a little bit longer for the sun to come up, so why wouldn’t you want to wrap up in a comfy knit? This fall, five major sweater trends are standing out against the basic standards: stripes, bright colors, graphic designs, oversized silhouettes and cardigans. Have fun with your casual, cozy looks. The regulation winter sweater is now dressed up with holiday spirit.
2 • ROMANTIC DRESS
For soft, sweet holiday style, channel your inner Juliette and choose a whimsical dress. Ruffles, beaded details and flowing silhouettes never go out of style. Choose a wrap body or a belted style that accentuates your waist or try a flowy sheath with a statement sleeve and turn up the romance this season.
3 • TUXEDO
Menswear-inspired pieces bring a current, polished edge to your holiday wardrobe. Trade out your little black dress for a sexy velvet suit in a deep burgundy or hunter green color for a stylish and sophisticated option that will surprise all party goers. Or choose a more feminine take on the suited style in a tuxedo dress with classic lapels and buttons. One of these unexpected styles will turn heads at your holiday festivities.
4 • ‘TIS THE SEQUIN
Every holiday season we see the reoccurrence of the sequin dress. This year, modernize the sparkly fabric by choosing to wear it on a modern silhouette. Make a statement in a skirt, blouse, wrap dress or pants in all-over sequins or adorned with shimmering details.
You can shine in contemporary style from Chanukah parties to New Year’s Eve.
5 • METALLIC MOMENT
This time of year is all about festive dressing, so pass on the nude tones and replace them with metallic hues like gold, silver and copper for an unexpected look throughout your holiday party circuit. No more all-black, all-white or all-nude outfits. An all-metallic, monochromatic look is the ultimate “neutral” outfit for your office holiday party.
