Finally gearing up to the Holiday season! Some things are meant to be merry and bright but when it comes to your holiday outfits, there are occasions to keep it chic and not so flashy. Seeing how we are coming towards the end of November, I am glancing through my calendar and putting all my big family gatherings, dinner with friends, coffee dates with co-workers, and even a dessert date with my neighbor. And so, once plans are made, the next thing on my mind is outfits. Holiday outfits may seem all sparkles and glam, but there are some occasions where a casual stylish outfit is all you need. In today’s blog post, I will be presenting three super chic looks that will be perfect for holiday dinners, meal plans and even a coffee date.

A little black piece can go a long way. The endless ways you can accessorize your little black dress or romper can get you through a 10 am to 10 pm type of day. There’s one day in December where I have a brunch thing with my girlfriends in the morning, a coffee date with a former co-worker and then my boyfriend’s Holiday party. All three events situate in Downtown and so going all the way back home for an outfit change just doesn’t seem feasible. The answer to my problem – this super sexy and elegant lace jumpsuit. I knew this was the perfect piece when I tried it on at the store a week ago.

For brunch – I was going to wear either a leather jacket or a cardigan over. This will keep the exposed back hidden until the night time. The little bit of front lace brings out a sophisticated look, but at the same time not too much. For the party, I was going to glam it up with bold red lips and a smoky makeup look. And off goes the jacket, for the hot open back. This jumpsuit also looks amazing with either a pair of flats or pumps.

Another key casual holiday outfit look I really love is pulling out my faux fur vest. I will admit that my fur vest sits in my closet for 11 months because I feel a tad extra wearing a fur vest to class. But, I just can’t get enough of it during December. The faux fur actually works so well with denim and boots. This is one of the easiest way to glam up a casual going out look.

Here are few options of what you can pair it with:

  • Boyfriend ripped jeans, collared shirt, statement necklace
  • Plaid button down, jeans, short boots
  • Chiffon shirt, jeans, over the knee boots
  • Chunky cardigan or sweater 

Still don’t know if you should invest in a faux fur vest? They also work great for a fancy dinner outfit. Try pairing it up with a dress, tights and boots. You will be surprised how well it can turn that casual dress into a wowing piece.

Lace and leather is also a fun combine to try out during the holiday time. I have always been so amused on how two totally different fabric styles get put together. The leather is more of an edgy vibe, versus the lace is more of a feminine and sexy style. There’s actually so much that bring out of it when you combine the two. If you are looking for a more casual look for the holiday such as a home party, try a crop lace top with a leather skirt. Or something a bit more family appropriate with a collared shirt and scalloped skirt.
