The holidays bring a lot of joy, warmth, and a little madness all in one. That’s why having key pieces handy in your closet keeps things easier on everyone when it comes to prepping your holiday outfit(s).

ABOUT THE LOOK

Dress: Forever 21 (similar dress here) | Faux Leather Jacket: Forever 21 (similar here & here | Shoes: Simply Vera by Vera Wang (similar here) | Accessories: Aldo

A flowy silk dress like this for example, I love how effortless the silhouette is. The low cut crossover bust and open-back detailing takes style and simplicity to another level. This dress is definitely ideal for any holiday occasion. Throwing on a faux leather jacket, like this navy blue one, not only is convenient but also a great option to stay warm all while adding even more character to your outfit. You can roll up the sleeves or wear it over the shoulders for a trendier look.

I decided on minimal jewelry and black leather pumps to keep the main focus on the jacket and dress. Yay for the holidays and cute, easy outfits! How do you manage to look put-together during the holiday madness?

Simplicity.

Indecisiveness is usually not something I fall under, but there are times when deciding on an outfit can be tricky. In such situations, I always reach for my go-to color. Yes, I’m referring to black. It is simple, classic, and you can never go wrong with it. Here in Miami, it feels nothing like winter so taking full advantage of skirts and open-toe shoes is a must.

ABOUT THE LOOK

Top: Mossimo (similar here) | Skirt: Mossimo | Shoes: Madden Girl (similar here) | Bracelet: Charming Charlie | Purse: Madden Girl (similar here)

 This printed circle skirt is one of my favorites to wear year round. The textured pattern on the skirt adds a nice detail, not to mention how sassy the flare on it makes me feel. Options are endless when trying to pick a top to pair with, but I felt like keeping things very effortless and went with this black turtleneck. I loooove turtlenecks! But for us girls with a long-round face, finding the right one can be quite a task. For those who struggle with the same issue, I find that lower turtlenecks like this one work much better!

For an outfit this simple, you don’t need much else other than your favorite purse, heels, and some accessories just for fun. Wear out on a dinner date or even a last minute holiday event.

Holiday Party Glam

The holidays are quickly approaching and that means getting dolled up and attending holiday parties! Being on a budget & all (no shame), I like to find different ways I can upgrade current pieces in my closet as opposed to shopping for new stuff. Like this teal bodycon mini skirt for example, is the same one from my previous post. Solid colored pieces are convenient because they can easily be worn repeatedly in more ways than one.

This black lace top with tassels around the lower hem has been sitting in my closet for 8 months and never been worn. Not only is it trendy, but it adds a nice touch of glam paired with the skirt. I opted to wear a nude cami under it and added more sass by wearing these gorgeous blush-nude platforms.

See how easily I managed to upgrade the look of the skirt? Grab some chic jewelry, add volume/waves to your hair, and of course a pop of lip never hurts either. Easy steps to follow for that holiday/cocktail party you weren’t sure what to wear to 😉
