The holidays are all about celebrating with your loved ones, and as any style enthusiast will note, planning the best outfits to do so. After all, it's not a party without the perfect party outfit, right? This year, embrace the season with a festive wardrobe featuring the glitziest, coziest, and most luxurious trends of the moment, all at a great value. Whether you're headed to a happy hour with co-workers, a casual get-together with the family, or a holiday soiree, we've got the on-trend essentials you need to end 2018 on a strong sartorial note, without breaking the bank.
From outerwear to accessories, soft, fluffy textures are a wardrobe staple for Winter. Up the ante even more for the holidays with a full-on faux fur coat in a rich color. A merlot shade is unexpected, but still seasonally appropriate, and will stand out in a sea of neutrals. Mirror the coat's clean, classic cut with similarly streamlined pieces, including a basic layering tee, tailored trousers, and simple sock boots. The result is a comfortable yet effortless look for an office happy hour or dinner out with friends.
If you've got a casual family get-together on the books, you can't go wrong with cozy-cool staples. Trade your basic leggings for a leather-look pair and your hoodie for a balloon-sleeve sweater — both add polish without compromising on comfort. Bundle up with a puffer vest in an on-trend print like plaid and a pom-topped beanie for the ultimate cozy vibes.
You can't celebrate the holidays without some sparkle and shine! Pull out all the stops with a metallic sequin skirt worthy of a glamorous night out. The midi length may be demure, but it's the glitzy gold that makes a statement. Combined with timeless pieces like a pullover sweater and over-the-knee boots, the final effect is elevated and sophisticated.
