Festive and Fab
The holidays are an ideal excuse to wear lots of sparkle. Sequins, metallic fabrics, and sparkly embellishments are must-haves when dressing up for holiday parties. I fell in love with this skirt from One Eleven immediately because I love anything gold. It is also the perfect length to look flirty and young, without being too short. This gold sequin skirt is perfect when paired with a simple jewelry and black top that keeps the crop top trend alive. -Kelsi
I chose this outfit because I thought it was both feminine and fun which represents my style perfectly. The ruffled flower top was beautifully classic yet very unique and made the overall look softer. The flared out black and silvery skirt not only made the outfit more glamorous, but it also transformed the outfit into a much more wintery look. The hints of sparkle in this outfit made it the perfect look for dressing up and having fun during the holiday season. -Michelle
For my holiday look, I chose this teal dress with a slight high-low hem and wrap bodice. I really liked the teal color of the dress because the hue is not as traditional as red or green but still matches the Christmas theme. I paired a gold bow belt to add definition to my waist and is slightly festive. My large pearl pendant necklace from One Eleven Boutique added a vintage inspired touch. Finally to top off my look, dark red lipstick and half pinned curled hair gave my holiday look that 1950’s flare that can be translated into 2013. -Bailey
This maroon dress I chose from One Eleven boutique is great for the holidays because of the color, cut, and tie detail. The cinching in the middle enhances the waist while the lower hem flares out. The neckline of this dress is fabulous! I love the tie detail because the bow is festive and adds an interesting aspect to the neckline. Finally, tights are a necessity with bare arms to keep your legs warm. My lace up high heeled oxfords are a great shoe that is stylish and sturdy. -Yoko
Nothing makes me feel more ready for holiday parties than wearing red. This dress fits the bill with a crochet fabric that’s heavier and cozy like a winter sweater but still cute and flattering. I was drawn to the slight high-low hemline of the dress since I felt it added a fun, trendy touch to an otherwise simple style. Because of the simple cut, I feel it is perfect for a family party or meeting your boyfriend’s parents. The red and gold jewelry helped to dress up this look and make it more party appropriate. -Mary
Black, White, and Spiked
This is my new favorite sweater everyone! During the holidays guys can’t go wrong with the classic black and white. And of course, I had to add my spikes to give it some swag. -Turk
Polished and Preppy
My outfit theme is best for Christmas! I wore my colorful ribbon embellished navy blue cardigan. I paired it with this gray and white polka skirt to add interest of the outfit. To add extra detail I wore a patterned collared shirt underneath my sweater for a preppy look. Finally, I chose black faux fur boots that are stylish and great in the snow. I think my outfit looks like Christmas gift wrapping and I imagine my shoes are like Santa Claus’s boots! -Yukina
Plaid is huge this season! Especially over sized plaid shirts and leggings, I love that. To be totally honest, I borrowed my boyfriend’s flannel shirt for this outfit! I wanted to make the shirt a bit dressier though, so I incorporated a sort of elegant cardigan and a velvet skater (my favorite fabric and my favorite style) skirt. The patterned tights add texture and a tiny bit more warmth. I’m obsessed with over-the-knee socks; they’re cute, comfy, and surprisingly warm. And then to finish, the staple to everyone’s wardrobe: brown lace up boots. I used gold accessories because I like the warm tones that lend well to the color palette here (and I just favor gold over silver). If I had to describe this…I’d call it lumberjack-chic! -Aurora
