Have a stack of invitations and nothing to wear? We've partnered with
American Eagle Outfitters to provide you with outfit ideas for the season ahead.
Between the gifts, the nonstop traveling, and the endless socializing, it's hard to catch a break during the holidays. But one thing you won't have to deal with? Your outfit. Here, we asked four editors to each style an ensemble they're excited to sport for an upcoming Winter event. From family get-togethers to seasonal soirées, take notes from their head-to-toe looks ahead to navigate the end-of-year madness in style. With these preapproved outfit choices, you can stop fretting over what to wear and focus on what really matters: spending time with your loved ones.

For a fun day of hopping around the city with your friends, go cozy with neutral-colored pieces you won't have to think twice about.
"When I go shopping with friends, I love to strategically map out our journey around Manhattan. The day necessitates an outfit that looks cool, feels comfy, and works day-to-night. This
knit dress is definitely fitting-room-friendly, and I'm a heather-gray addict. I'd pair it with a fuzzy bomber, walkable boots, and a leather backpack to stash small purchases and snacks." — Joanna Douglas, director, Native

Headed to a family function? Try juxtaposing comfortable staples with sophisticated separates.
"For my yearly get-together with my extended family, I always aim to strike the perfect balance between relaxed and polished. A pair of
lived-in jeans and shoes that are easy to slip off are imperative since, by the end of the night, I'm usually splayed out on the couch watching movies with my younger cousins. But combined with a tailored blazer and sleek earrings, I won't feel out of place among my older relatives." — Stephanie Nguyen, assistant editor, Native

If you're planning to eat your way through the holidays, opt for easy pieces and soft textures to stay comfortable.
"I'm all about coziness over the holidays. I love envisioning myself sitting around the table with my family in a comfy yet stylish outfit. A pair of
corduroy pants in a seasonal color like cranberry looks festive, and a crisp cream-colored sweater goes perfectly. Plus, I don't have to worry about feeling restricted after a big, delicious meal." — Samantha Netkin, assistant editor, Native

Whether you're carol karaoking or cider tasting, match the jovial evening with playful textures.
"I love the look of a
crushed velvet dress layered over a t-shirt — it feels fresh for a night out celebrating with the girls. The metallic gold booties add a festive touch and the ankle-length, fur-accented coat keeps me warm." — Rebecca Brown, editor, Native
