Free People's latest lookbook fare, titled Stage Right, is just another excuse to keep the holiday styling inspiration at an all-time (dreamy) high, and we're more than OK with that. Here's the thing: we've come to expect nothing less than effortlessly cool combos from the bohemian-luxe brand, which regularly makes us wish we layered up in flowy maxi dresses, oversize cardigans, fringed skirts, and wool fedoras. This time around, though, Free People is doing what it does best — juxtaposing ultrafeminine silhouettes with a tougher tomboy attitude — with a timely holiday slant. And, without spoiling the prettiness ahead, let's just say, you'll be prepped with the essentials for any gorgeous cocktail party. Think metallics, lace, sequins, floral appliqué, and soft open-knit weave details. Below, find our top three picks — culled straight from the November lookbook — with our own styling tips, then click through for the rest.
- How fresh is this delicate white lace top, accented with black suspenders? It's a playful juxtaposition of sweet and airy (done the wintry way, of course) with just a hint of a tough-girl vibe. To us, this is Free People at its core, pretty and just a little undone. Our styling suggestion? Just add cropped black trousers and a point-toe pump.
- We're a little bit obsessed with the brand's just-debuted FP shoe collection, and these sexy lace-up moto boots are the cool-girl offset to your more festive feminine pieces. Pair these boots with a looser-fighting midi-length skirt and chunky bobbled knit sweater, or wear them over dark skinny jeans.
- Brave enough to don gold embellished pants? Then try on this statement-making pair if you dare. All you'll need to complete the look are a simple silky blouse and ankle-strap pumps.
