With the seasons changing, this can prompt many people to mix up their style and try something new. Although getting a winter coat and opting for some cozy cardigans are inevitable for most people, tweaking your style can give you that extra boost of energy now that the days are getting shorter. You don’t have to spend a lot of money or buy designer brands to look fresh, there are lots of ways to feel good about yourself. Trying out something new could surprise you and you might fall for something you never thought you would like. Check out some of these ideas, and let your style develop and change into something new.
With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Shopping for presents is one of the best things about the lead up to Christmas; not only do you have an excuse to go shopping, but you also get the chance to really spoil the people who you love. Yet the common complaint remains between the genders – that they have no idea what to buy the other one. For women, it can be straightforward, with candles, blankets, jewelry (a bit stereotypical but it’s true) but men can be a little bit more complicated to shop for.
Most people receive the same answer when you ask a guy what they want for Christmas: ‘I dunno’ or ‘nothing’ but imagine their shock when you hand them a box of nothing on the day. And while no one likes to use stereotypes – this might be the only time they are useful. You can easily shop for people by concentrating on one hobby they have, or one thing they love.
H&M is doing something very generous, and that is giving us extra savings on clothes we need for the holidays. You know the way to my hear, H&M. They are calling it ” Countdown to Black Friday Deals”. I searched high and low at the sale and found my top picks. I would wear these to Thanksgiving dinner, Holiday parties, or seriously any other time of the year. The incredible part is they are all under $50!
H&M’s Countdown to Black Friday Deals
You’ll notice off the bat, velvet is a top trend that I am loving. This crushed velvet jacket in teal has been calling my name since the moment it hit stores, and now it is on sale! Throw it over some skinny deals and your favorite top and you’re ready to go.
Similarly, these wide-leg velvet pants are a total must for the holiday season. They feel like pajamas but looks super chic. Can’t go wrong for under $30! If you have a slightly more upscale party to attend, I really like this long black dress with a low cut back. Looking for more color? Try this blue wrap dress that is absolutely stunning! I’ve seen many stylists are pairing these dressed with knee boots for an edgy and modern twist.
Last top pick is this velvet fitted dress in either pink or black. Super cute and great for any occasion, even New Year’s Eve! The best part is it’s only $9.99.
My Other Favorites
All of yesterday and last night I spent with Glamour Magazine celebrating their 2017 Women of the Year. Some of the most inspiring women around the world came together to share their stories. I feel so honored that I was invited to attend, and humbled by the incredible women who sat in the same room with me. Today, I am doing a quick roundup of what I wore and later on will share more on the full day.
There are so many holiday parties upon us! I’ve already did a couple looks for you to recreate. One all black look and the other a wide pant look. I recently attended Glamour Women of the Year and went on the hunt for dresses, realizing there just are certain events you need a dress for. So today I am sharing my top picks for cocktail and formal dresses.
The other issue I noticed most people have is constantly guessing what style to wear to each event. It is a challenge to find the right outfit or dress per cocktail or formal gala. Do I go long, or short? Do I add beading and sequins or go with satin? I will answer these questions below along with some options to ensure you’ll be the best dressed this holiday season!
I have tested products all year long for the sole purpose to create the ultimate blogger holiday gift guide! That’s right, everything on this magnificent list I tried, used, and fell in love with. These are the products that went above and beyond my expectations. These are the pieces I use daily and can’t live without. These are the gifts that, just receiving one of these as a holiday present will make a person break into a happy dance (or into happy tears). Imagine what would happen if you gifted two of these! This is why it is deemed the ultimate blogger holiday gift guide 2017 edition! Let’s get gifting.
There are so many more options these days to buy faux fur coats that look so incredibly real and are just as warm. They are super chic and a great way to upgrade any winter look. I love wearing my faux fur coat to holiday parties and dinners. It’s a nice change from my everyday puffer coat!
This season, I really love the multitude of color options available as well as different lengths. I think it is fun to play around with the variety of options and have a coat for certain occasions. For instance, this evergreen faux fur coat is perfect to hang with the girls and this stunning faux mink is great to attend events in. Here are several other options I am drooling over this season. I hope you enjoy!
Maybe it is the New Yorker in me, but all black outfits are my thing. I love the minimalistic look and the way they can be dressy without feeling too overdone. The simplicity of the look is easy to accessories and can transition from day to night.
Holiday Cocktail Party Outfit
Since this season typically calls for holiday cocktail parties, I thought this would be a great alternative for to the traditional skirt and blouse combination. My top is one of my favorite designers, Cinq a Sept. I paired it with casual black denim jeans.It’s slightly warmer and looks just as nice. I paired my favorite Skagen accessories to match the minimalist look. The boots I found many years ago, I’ll try to link similar options below! What holiday events are you attending this year?
