What to Wear

The holidays are such a wonderful time of year. There’s so much to look forward to, from get-togethers with friends and family dinner parties, to holiday episodes of your favorite TV shows and an unlimited supply of Christmas cookies. The stress from school can be brushed off your shoulders and you have a new, fresh year to get excited for. I love the holidays because there is always so much going on. With different events that take up your schedules, there are so many occasions where you can either dress up or keep it casual.

This Fashionisto rocked a holiday outfit that could easily go from running errands all day to a chic dinner party in the evening. He puts a modern twist on the classic Christmas colors of red, green and white. He paired an edgy and cool camouflage print button-down shirt with a cozy cream-colored cardigan and maroon pants. The holidays are definitely the best time for bringing out those thick knits and wool sweaters—perfect for lounging by a fire and sipping hot chocolate or apple cider. Sigh, the good life.

I love how this Fashionisto kept it simple and comfortable, while still incorporating details that complete his look. The texture and style of his sweater are great additional elements, especially with the contrasting elbow patches. For footwear, he chose a pair of rugged black combat boots, which are a reliable choice for trekking out in the snow. Take a hint from this Fashionisto and keep up the holiday spirit!

One Simple Change: This look can go from day to night by switching the sweater for a sharp blazer and trading the boots for a pair of loafers or brogues. Then you can swap the entire outfit at the end of the night for your favorite holiday pajamas, maybe a onesie perhaps?
