I'm not a fan of crazy embellished holiday sweaters. Instead, I prefer keeping it simple with a bright red sweater. Pair this Anthropologie sweater with jeans or leather pants and flats.
I think accessories can transform even your everyday jeans and a sweater into a holiday outfit. If you like a classic plaid, you can't go wrong by adding a plaid scarf over a neutral sweater (both by GAP). Pair it with a red clutch (Nordstrom).
Stripes! I had to add something a bit daring in this post. This rugby style striped maxi skirt has a slit at lower back. The best part of wearing this body-conscious fit is the skirt fabric has some forgiving stretch. Add a sweater to finish the look. Find it at Free People Clothing Boutique.
This berry-colored tweed jacket adds some bling with metallic threading and trimmed in fringe. Instantly dresses up your favorite jeans. Find the Victory Tweed Jacket at ToryBurch.com
Polka dots are always on my list of faves. The metalic gold dot tights (KateSpade.com) are the perfect way to add some holiday pizazz.
Going to a party? This red Street Tote with adjustable handles is perfect for tucking a few special gifts inside. Find it at IIIBeCa by Joy Gryson (iiibeca.com) Not only are IIIBeCa bags modern and chic, they also give back. III% of wholesale proceeds is donated to 3 charities, equaling 9% given back.
Capes by Leslie Tessler make me smile because they add a chic element to any outfit. Plus I can't resist wrapping up in the cozy, woolen warmth. Find this Titan Cape Midnight and many others at Leslie Tessler.com
