Dressing the Turkey (What to Wear for the Holidays)

It's that time of year where your local radio station will start their 24/7 Christmas music and the shops will be bonkers from open until close. I absolutely love this time of year, but there's something to be said for being prepared in advance so that the shopping that you're doing is out of joy, rather than necessity. Even though I have no idea what I'm buying for who & when, I have thought a great deal about what I will be wearing for what & when. The combinations I've thought of will take you from the corporate holiday party to the family Christmas Eve dinner and from shopping downtown to NYE. My ideas for dressing for the holidays this year are all about unexpected textures and combinations while keeping in mind comfort and versatility. Check 'em out!

1. Maxi and a cropped top :: bonus points for topping it off with a blazer on NYE

2. Thigh high socks and an A-line skirt :: bonus points when wearing Hunters for shopping

3. Pastels and camel :: bonus points for donning a beige snood en route to Christmas Eve dinner

4. Sequins and khakis :: bonus points for a vintage brown belt at the corporate holiday party

5. Plaid shirt and brocade :: bonus points for rocking a bright lipstick on NYE

6. Leather skirt and tucked in sweatshirt :: bonus points for wearing your favorite sports team at Christmas Eve dinner

7. Oversized fisherman sweater and lace :: bonus points for an beaded clutch at the corporate holiday party

8. Winter white and fur :: bonus points for mirrored aviators on a day of shopping (followed by cocktails)

Thanks so much for reading! I will need to broaden my wardrobe to work out some of 'em, but I'll accept the challenge!
