Building a holiday wardrobe collection: 3 must-have pieces

My holiday wardrobe has changed over the years becoming more relaxed (lucky me!)

But there’s something about looking really put-together and festive for the holidays that’s so much fun.  So if you’re looking to step up and out of your favorite flannels, here are three pieces you should have in your holiday wardrobe collection.

1. A black sweater dress: warm and comfortable (and you don’t have to worry about unbuttoning pants, yay!)  I love a sweater dress because it can really be dressed up or down in a matter of seconds.

Dress it down with leggings and a flat black boot and fun necklace. Easy, comfortable and chic.

Dress it up:  wear a sheer black tight and a sexy pair of booties for date night.  Pair it with a dressier evening coat and have a fresh face of makeup with a bright red lip, voila!

2. Sequins: I really cannot get enough of sequins year-round but they are a number one in my book for holiday!  Sparkle and shine, what’s not to love? 

Dress it down: layer
 a denim shirt over it, cuffs rolled with a slim black pant.  Or layer a shorter chunky sweater over it so the bottom 3-4 inches of sequins pop out acting as a ruffle layer and pair it with denim. Easy and fun!

Dress it up:  Most sequin tops tend to be a boxier cut so pair it with a slim fitting pencil skirt or your sexiest dark denim.   Sequin skirt?  Pair it with a fitted v-neck style top.

3. A pop of color: red or pink:  color is such an easy, fun way to look festive without overdoing it.  Dress it down: pair your bright blouse or sweater with your favorite denim pants, a sweater jacket and top it off with simple jewelry; a pair of thin hoops or sparkly stud earrings!

Dress it up:  Be bold and wear it with your black sequin skirt!   Or pair your bright blouse with a wide leg black pant, fabulous gold necklace, great evening party coat and a black pump.

Lastly, you could also go bold and color block it.  Simply choose the color it’s opposite on the color wheel!  Going for the red? Choose a fabulous turquoise skirt!

What’s your favorite holiday look?

Safe travels and have FUN!
