A few weeks back, I took an Instagram poll of what you all would like to see in terms of content in the future. There was an overwhelming amount of “YAS” for a holiday outfit post similar to the one I did for Thanksgiving! So, without further ado, here are some easy holiday outfits for any occasion this season!
If you’re like me, the holidays with your family are a more laid back affair. Except for occasionally going over to another relative’s house, we typically keep it low key. And that goes for both Kevin’s and my family. But, there are definitely those that go out for various holiday parties throughout the month or even do something more extravagant with their family when they celebrate! So with that in mind, I’ve put together a mix of 5 easy casual and dressy outfits to fit any occasion.
This outfit would be perfect for a cozy, casual holiday. Essentially the holidays that are typical in my family. This is also a very easy outfit to create because it involves things that most of us already own – a cardigan, jeans and a cami/tank top. This white cami from LOFT has been a staple in my wardrobe for the last two years. I wear it in the summer, on its own, and layer it in colder months under a cardigan like this one. Unfortunately, it’s sold out but this one from Express is very similar and comes in 6 colors!
Would you believe I’ve had the cardigan in this photo since 2012, and it’s from Forever 21?! Not even joking! Proof that they do have quality products! I’ve linked some very similar ones below the photo and in the widget at the bottom of the page because a I believe having a neutral colored, warm cardigan is an essential. It’s perfect for everyday wear. You can easily dress up an outfit like this for a festive occasion by adding heeled boots/booties, faux fur or a layered necklace. Or, if you’re like me, you just throw it all on and call it a day!
Here are 4 other outfit ideas for the holiday season:
For a casual but dressy occasion:
II. Similar to the first, pair a cami with faux leather leggings/jeans and booties like these ones. Adorn with a statement necklace or earrings to elevate your look (head to Sugarfix by BaubleBar at Target for affordable statement pieces). If you’re in a colder climate, bring out your faux fur or a wool coat to keep warm!
III. A wrap top like this one with your favorite pair of jeans. I recently rediscovered my love for BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters, and the ones I have are currently on sale for under $50. I’ve had them for 3 years so I feel that speaks to their quality! They don’t stretch with wear or fade with washing, which are huge to me.
For a dressy occasion:
IV. This dress from Express would be perfect for any holiday occasion. It’s the right color (red) and is one shoulder long-sleeve so great for cooler weather. The lacy material makes it both trendy but also timeless. Pair it with statement earrings and your favorite heels for the perfect look!
V. This dress from Macy’s is long sleeve and would be great for a work holiday party. It’s lacy and mock neck, so very on trend but still very timeless. It’s currently 30% off through 12/11 and still has all sizes in stock so grab yours now!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful week!! I’m currently at home for a few days seeing friends/my parents and getting ready to see KATY PERRY in Milwaukee on Monday. EEEK!!! As you may remember from my birthday post, I am a huge KP fan and am super excited to see her in concert. One of my best friends and I saw her last tour in 2014, and it was incredible. She is an amazing performer and literally goes for 2 hours without stopping. Her love for her fans is so evident too; she invites people on stage and talks to the audience throughout the performance. Can you tell I’m excited? I could gush about her forever. Total girl crush!
I’m currently experiencing some “minor” problems with my laptop that I brought with me. There’s about 4 keys not working (w & s included). I’ve founded a work around by using the keyboard viewer, but typing these last three paragraphs were painful to say the least. Normally I work on our iMac at home so avoid this issue. What I’m really trying to say is that my Monday post may come later next week. I hope you all understand! This keyboard is driving me bananas.
Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to follow me on Instagram to watch my Katy Perry adventures on Monday!!
