WHAT TO WEAR: Holiday Party

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Along with all of the excitement that the holiday season brings, it is the perfect time of year to show off new winter clothes. For us Fashionistas, it is also an extremely busy season. Between finals, holiday get-togethers and holiday shopping, it is essential to have clothes that can transition for all of these different occasions.

This Fashionista is wearing the perfect outfit for a holiday party–whether it be a hosted by family, friends or her workplace. Her sweet and simple cream-colored turtleneck sweater is comfortable enough that she can wear it to her finals that morning and keep it on for her social event at night. She has paired her sweater with faux leather leggings; which are an absolute staple to keep warm while looking fashionable. Thigh-high boots are all the craze right now and are another perfect way to look party-ready while being comfortable and warm. Thigh-high boots are trending for fall/winter and are almost always offered with a variety of heel sizes. This Fashionista is rocking flat suede boots, but to dress this outfit up a bit more, she could have worn thigh-high boots with a heel. She has topped her festive ensemble off with a cross-body Kate Spade bag. Cross-body purses are ideal for social events because they do not get in the way nor take away from the other details of the outfit, and they hold your wallet, keys and phone perfectly.

Dressing for a holiday party can be stressful due to the fact that almost everyone wants to look presentable. Every Fashionista should be sure to stock up on some closet essentials this holiday season to lessen the last minute stress of finding something to wear!
