Top 5 Holiday Wear Picks + Outfits

Monday, November 23, 2015
So many holiday shops have been released and I am all for it. There are a lot of metallics, sparkles and embellishments which is right up my alley when I choose holiday wear. I decided to curate my top 5 picks that I've spotted and with expensive and affordable options and also have a couple of holiday outfit ideas at the end of it.

1) Metallic, Embellished and/or Lace Dresses & Jumpsuits

  • I'm not even go into how perfect these three kinds of dresses and jumpsuits are for the holiday.
  • (1) H&M | (2) ASOS | (3) ASOS | (4) H&M | (5) Forever 21 | (6) Dynamite

    2) Embellished Clutches

  • I love embellished clutches. They look so elegant and they are 100% a statement piece; especially if you wear it with a white ensemble. They're quite pricey but here are my favourites I've come across:
  • (1) Aldo | (2) Charming Charlie | (3) Aldo| (4) New Look | (5) New Look | (6) Aldo

    3) 2-Piece Sets

  • I don't think I'll ever get tired of two-piece sets. They're extremely versatile and one of my favourite things to buy. I love that it doesn't have to necessarily be a "top and skirt" combo but it could also be different kinds of combinations like matching culottes and sleeveless blazer. With the holidays coming up, the weather may not be the most friendly thing so I decided to add a bunch of different 2-piece sets that can go with different climates depending on your area. I also love how you don't have to wear both pieces at the same time but you can easily transform the outfit by wearing it in a variety of ways.
  • (1) Missguided Top & Bottom | (2) ASOS Top & Bottom | (3) Missguided Top & Bottom| (4) Forever21 Top & Bottom | (5) Missguided Top & Bottom | (6) Zara Top & Bottom

    4) Turtlenecks/High Neck Tops

  • Turtlenecks have been a trend for a while now. I remember being in elementary school and being extremely embarrassed about a thin mustard coloured turtleneck that my mom would make me wear as thermal and I would always wear another sweater on top of it. I absolutely hated turtlenecks because I always felt like choking. I saw the other variations of them (that being bigger turtle necks and not tight around the neck) and started to love them. It kept my neck extra warm in the winter (which was the biggest bonus for me). I never really saw turtlenecks as being a versatile piece in your wardrobe but you actually can pair it with many items like culottes, skirts, etc. Instead of posting pretty much the same turtleneck in different colours, I picked different styles that I love the turtleneck look on.
  • (1) Zara | (2) Forever 21 | (3) Zara| (4) Forever 21 | (5) Zara | (6) H&M

    5) Festive Christmas Sweaters

  • Not all of us wear fancy clothing for the holidays. Usually, I wear a pretty dolled up outfit for Christmas Eve and by Christmas Day, I'm in a comfy sweater or just my pajamas. Ranging from silky pajamas to ugly Christmas sweaters, I got you all covered with my favourite cozy festive wear!
  • (1) Forever 21 | (2) Boohoo | (3) Victoria Secret| (4) Bethany Mota Collection at Aeropostale | (5) Victoria Secret | (6) H&M

    Now for my favourite part, OUTFIT IDEAS!

    Outfit 1
  • I love the look all white, all black or a combination of white and black for the holidays. Add a bold lip colour like MAC's Ruby Woo and you're set for your holiday event!
  • Outfit Details
  • Coat - ASOS (alternative)
  • Jumpsuit - Dynamite
  • Shoes - New Look
  • Clutch - Call it Spring
  • Outfit 2
  • I absolutely love beaded tops and totally fell in love with this one from Forever 21. You can easily pair it with some white pants and a warm coat and you're good to go! I also love the slogan hat from Zara and if you pair it with white trainers, it makes the outfit more casual yet put together and festive!
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - Forever 21 (other embellished tops: 1, 2)
  • Pants - Topshop
  • Coat - H&M
  • Hat - Zara
  • Hope you enjoyed this post! If you'd like me to post a holiday lookbook of outfits that I come up with from my own closet, then let me know in the comments below and I can start working on that :)
