Holiday Style Trends

Here's Your Guide to 2018 Holiday Fashion

Celebrate the season in style. We've partnered with JCPenney to help you get holiday-ready with the most noteworthy trends of the moment.

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.
