The holidays are a time to enjoy the company of your friends and family, not a time to stress about what to gift, make, or wear. Here are seven outfits to make getting dressed this Christmas season easier than ever. Besides each piece priced under $50 (except for the fur jacket), the best part about these seven outfits is the ability to remix the individual pieces together to create even more looks fit for any occasion this holiday season. (i.e. the lace top with the black skinnies and leopard loafers or try the turtleneck with the green cargos topped off by the floppy hat).
Traveling home: The only thing in your control at the airport this Christmas season is your comfort so choose a layered outfit that allows you to relax and move quickly through security check points but that still looks chic when you arrive at your destination.
Shopping the Steals: The stores will be bustling with last minute shoppers so ditch your bulky, warm winter coat for a long sweater jacket, sensible yet stylish booties, and a printed top to quickly finish your last minute errands.
Meeting Friends: Keep your leather skirt from being overly sexy by choosing an A-line fit and juxtaposing it with boyfriend inspired pieces: the button up blouse and oversized cardigan.
Holiday Outing: Participate in the dark lip trend to add a dose of drama and to maintain a pop of burgundy once you check your coat. It’s the most inexpensive statement trend to try this season.
Opening Presents: Throw on a big, chunky sweater, infinity scarf, and slippers to stay cozy while lounging around Christmas morning opening presents and watching holiday movie classics with the family.
Christmas Cocktails: Instead of a basic LBD, mix up your cocktail attire by pairing a peplum lace top with a fitted skirt, sparkly accessories, and a faux fur jacket. The combination still exudes sophisticated femininity but with a flair of fun and personality.
Christmas Day: Celebrate in style by layering under or over a skater dress to add interest in the form of sparkle or leather. Finish it off with bare legs or tights, a belt or necklace, but always with a killer pair of shoes.
