It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It's the holiday season, and you want to look fabulous? Well, I created four gorgeous outfits for the holiday season. No matter what you celebrate, or what the occasion is, you'll look absolutely stunning :)

Holiday Party

At the hottest holiday parties this year, you'll stand out from the sea of red and green dresses. This outfit is both classy and sophisticated, and it's perfect for mingling with your friends. I combined an elegant bergundy rosette dress from Charlotte Russe with a classic black cardigan from American Eagle. If the weather outside is frightful, throw on a pair of black opaque tights to keep your legs warm. Accent your outfit, with rich gold accessories and finish it off with classic black ballet flats. If you're strapped for cash this holiday season, this outfit is budget-friendly.

This outfit is a little more fun, and it expresses your wild side. I paired a ruffled one shoulder black dress from Charlotte Russe with bold purple opaque tights. I accessorized it with a lot of chunky silver jewelry and finished it off with black patent ankle boots. This outfit is pricier, but use it as inspiration and look for similar cheaper pieces. This outfit was inspired by the "One Armed Bandit" in Cosmogirl Dec/Jan '08.

Holiday Dinner

This outfit is both modest and stunning, so it's perfect for the family get together. I paired a deep purple velvet blazer from American Eagle and a black lace cami from American Eagle. Add on jet-black skinny jeans and patent black ballet flats, and your ensemble is good to go!

Christmas Morning

This outfit is both cute, and comfy .. perfect for Christmas morning under the tree. I paired a red polka dot flannel PJ set from aerie and white cable-knit slipper booties from American Eagle. Top it off with a black headband to manage your beadhead and throw on a festive Christmas hat. Make yourself some chocolat chaud and your good to go!
