This holiday, the trend is all about wearing outfits that feel comfortable with a little bit of festivity thrown in. Here are three holiday looks that are both festive and comfortable for the winter season.
LOOK 1: THE VELVET BLAZER
Nothing says holiday more than velvet. That’s what makes this velvet blazer in a deep gold hue a comfortable yet put-together piece for celebrating at home. I paired it with a simple silk camisole, jeans, and a printed loafer to complete the look. Even if you’re venturing out to a small family gathering, this outfit works for day or evening. The blazer is relaxed with a hint of a structure. It also looks great with a pair of wide-leg trousers or skinny jeans, or even faux-leather leggings. Dress it up or down.
LOOK 2: MONOCHROMATIC FROM HEAD TO TOE
If you want to put together a simple, chic outfit for the holidays, monochromatic is the way to go. Keeping it simple with an effortless color combination takes little guesswork and makes a stylish impact. This recycled-cashmere sweater is slightly cropped with a dropped shoulder and subtle puffed sleeves. It’s both beautiful and comfortable. Pair it with cropped wide-leg cords and a pair of spotted loafers. Add a pop of pattern to the outfit with the shoe or the sweater. This sweater comes in a few different colors as do the cords. This monochromatic outfit is an ideal look for a holiday brunch or festive afternoon lunch.
LOOK 3: COMFORTABLE GLAMOUR
If dressing up is more your style, but the holidays are going to be a little more low-key this year, pulling together something a bit fancier might be as simple as throwing on a little block heel and a festive sequined duster. This cardigan is purposefully oversized, making it even more cozy. Pull the outfit together with a chic pair of white cords and silk cami. I love the way this block-heel shoe balances fun and function, making it an ideal option for this holiday outfit.
