Going home for the holidays is definitely one of the best parts of the school year. It is one of the few opportunities to take time for yourself. That doesn’t mean that looking your best needs to be forfeited. This may be more of a note to self, because the venn diagram of when I wear sweatpants and when I’m on break from school is a circle.
But maybe, you feel the same way! It’s easy to get into a slump of not wanting to try out new looks, especially after weeks of school. Take some inspiration from these holiday looks from Style Gurus across the country. From leather jackets to velvet dresses, there’s so many ways to switch up your look this holiday season.
