Holiday Sparkle

image

I absolutely love the holiday time—which always means hot cocoa and gingerbread houses, and stores filled with winter displays…not to mention, with all the holly and christmas lights everywhere, you can’t help but be in the holiday spirit!

Emulating this kind of cheer in an outfit is pretty simple—I like to focus a look on deep, rich greens and sparkly golds because those are the colors of all the decorations during the holidays.

Here, I paired a white jacquard top with embellished collar detail with a deep green plaid skirt and a cream military-style coat with gold details. As for accessories, I added a gold and black skinny bow belt and black bow kitten heels

This embellished collar reminds me of the all the sparkling lights strung up on the trees and buildings of New York. 

To add just a bit of fun to the outfit, I added some sheer heart tights under the skirt. These are one of my favorite pairs of tights this holiday season.

Finally, I grabbed my reliable Neverfull tote—and its off to the Holiday Shoppes at Union Square!
