Finding the key looks this season
One key style we are seeing is the “interiors” look, where you may see wallpaper print on a dress, coat, or top. Another would be pieces with accents of velvet and suede.
Going from office to office party
Start with a versatile dress and then switch to a pair of pointed heels. Add a festive statement necklace and a stylish clutch.
Beyond the little black dress
Try a navy blue velvet fitted sport coat. You can throw it over a dress or wear it with jeans, heels, a white tee, and a long necklace with jewel tones for a casual look.
Completing your holiday look
For accessories, choose lots of gold and jewel tones—think emerald, sapphire, and ruby. Try a great long necklace that you can add to a tee or to your dress, minimal but layered gold rings, and a heritage bracelet from your mom or granny to make you feel special during the holidays.
Pieces that outlast the holiday
A great traditional color to consider is navy blue, if you accessorize with green during the holidays. But post-holidays, if you pair it with classic gold accessories, it carries you past the eggnog season. Other items to consider would be suede leggings, a long knit sweater tunic, a velvet jacket, and chambray mixed with a plaid skirt or plaid cigarette pants.
