Hello, November! It’s officially holiday party-planning time in my book. While I won’t be hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas at my home, there are plenty of other festive things to get working on like gift shopping and finding just the right holiday soirée looks.
I’ll be sharing some of my favorite gift guides soon – including my Instagram-inspired shopping guide featuring #girlboss shops and brands – but in the meantime here are some of my recent fashion finds that layer rich jewel tones (hello, wineberry) and on-trend yet classic textures like velvet and faux fur for a winning holiday style combination.
Pair a high-waisted velvet pant like these from Lauren Conrad’s Kohl’s collection with a cropped faux fur coat (Mine is a Banana Republic find from years ago, but here’s an updated version available at Banana Republic now). Add a printed tee like this Paris destination top from J.Crew for a more playful, causal look or add a bit more polish with a bow-tie blouse. All you’re missing is an Old Fashioned and some mistle toe.
Cheers to a festive and joyful holiday season, my friends!
