holiday party looks

Sunday, December 18, 2016

'Tis the season for countless holiday parties and gatherings! I don't know about you, but when the end of November hits, the calendar just fills up every weekend with goings-on for the upcoming holiday season. It seems like there are always an abundance of people to see and events to attend, and one thing is always for certain, you need something festive to wear!

I know that every holiday, at least a couple things on the calendar involve getting dressed up - and I've always thought that the holidays are perfect for breaking out some bold and interesting pieces. Whether it be colorful velvet, statement jewelry, or taking a fashion risk...there's no better time of year to try things out!

When it comes to the ladies, there are so many options. Some of my favorite places to check out include ASOS, Top Shop, and even your local department stores! ASOS always has a gorgeous selection of party dresses and skirts like this velvet number...and you know I had to throw in a maternity option too! Just because I'm pregnant doesn't mean I can't still wear a killer dress ;) 

Shoe and accessories can be found nearly anywhere, you can even did into your own closets and re-discover pieces you might have forgotten about or have a hard time wearing on a regular basis. If you decide to go for a more basic or traditional outfit, you can dress it up with overstated accessories! I love these velvet platforms from Steve Madden and sparkly Kendra Scott stud earrings.

Now when it comes to the guys, sometimes it can be hard to get them to wear bolder pieces. I've been lucky in that my husband enjoys fashion and doesn't usually hesitate when there is an opportunity to take a fashion risk from time-to-time. There are so many amazing and stylish options available these days, you don't have to be worried about mixing in a brighter color or funky accessory!

Bonobos has some great options, especially for the holiday season. This is a men's clothing company I was introduced to lately that strives to provide high quality, great fitting pieces. I love that men can visit this site and find anything they need, even shoes and accessories. I love this blue velvet blazer (also available in burgundy) and their gorgeous selection of ties

I'm also loving Bonobos' pant selection - they come in Tailored, Slim, Athletic, or Straight, and who doesn't love a company that focuses on custom fit? Makes picking up a last minute pair for a gift or party so much easier. Plus, if you are a new customer they are offering 20% off when you sign up for their email newsletter!
