Tis’ the season! Hello December, we have been waiting for you. Another year here and gone, hope 2016 was nothing but the very best. I just adore December, the snow up here in Canada, the holiday spirit, all the shopping and just love all around. Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kawanzaa or just getting together with friends and family, today’s blog post will guide you to some holiday season outfit ideas and styles. I will cover some basics along with some green and red styles too.
Avoid that little black dress this year and try something with a bit more colour. A burgundy velvet dress is the perfect piece for the holiday. I admit it, my closet is all black dresses, and although I am for-black outfits all the way, why not add a subtle holiday colour in the outfit. A burgundy dress isn't too bright, still has that neutral tone. Plus, good thing about burgundy is that it works very well with black. So you can match this dress up with either a black or grey cardigan, or a black pair of long boots. A dress like this can also be worn up or down. Add an adorable statement necklace to wear it up, or a casual rain/light jacket to wear it down.

Another super trendy thing this winter is the fur vest. I actually love this piece, and the reason is a fur vest can literally transform any outfit into glam. There are so many faux-fur vest out there so no need to worry about animal harm. Aside from wearing it to fancy events, the fur vest can be layered with a chambray shirt and jeans for a more causal look. This is a piece of luxury warmth.

The camel coat is also all over stores. This coat is the key to looking smart and stylish! One of my friend is currently in England and she was just telling me how camel coat is a must have there. This piece can also be worn with almost anything. You can match it with a pair of jeans for a casual look or even a lace dress for a more "dinner" look. A jacket like this is perfect for the Fall time up until mid/end of Dec, depending on how cold it is. If you are going for a cocktail party via car, something like this is the perfect cover up. If you are looking to pick up one, almost all stores carry it now. From luxury brands like Burberry to ones under $100 -

I love the H&M one! The Nautica coat also has a very similar style too! Those are usually a darker color which I personally prefer more.

The perfect holiday bag is no other than a classic Chloe Drew Shoulder bag. It's the holiday season and a great time to treat yourself. The Drew saddle bag is the perfect size for all your party needs. I am loving their green/purple contrast leather, which totally get your whole look into the holiday spirit!
