With school over for the semester, the holidays are fast approaching. This week, most students will be heading home to spend time with their family and friends. Packing to go home for the holidays is always difficult, and most Fashionistas will be working with a limited version of their wardrobe the next few weeks. To make sure you stay stylish over the holidays, take a cue from this Fashionista and pack classic, versatile pieces to create cute looks throughout the holiday break.
Instead of taking all your coats home for the break, take one coat in a classic shape and color. This Fashionista’s belted red pea coat is a great shape and shows off her figure, and it would work well with most outfits. It can be worn with a casual outfit, as shown here, while you’re out finishing your holiday shopping or with a dress and tights for a holiday party. Also, you can’t go wrong with red at Christmas. Try a peacoat from Macy’s or Victoria’s Secret for a similar look.
Her colorful printed scarf and knitted newsboy cap add some color and texture to her outfit, while still keeping her warm in the freezing weather. A couple funky accessories that can be worn with multiple outfits can save some space in your suitcase. When you eat a little too much holiday dinner and don’t want to squeeze into your skinny jeans, try a flared, trouser-cut pair like today’s Fashionista. This jean trend is going to be big for spring, and the cut is much more forgiving than skin-tight skinnies. And as we all know, a great pair of jeans goes with everything.
Add a few more versatile pieces like a cardigan and a sweater dress, and you will be ready for the holiday break. While having a smaller wardrobe might seem limiting, it’s a great way to mix up your staples and create new looks.
