Our holiday gatherings tend to be casual and low-key, nothing fancy or formal. This easy, Festive-Not-Fussy holiday outfit is comfortable and features pieces that can easily be re-mixed with others in my wardrobe.
A casual holiday party look
My go-to formula? A bit of sparkle + plush texture makes a simple outfit feel more party-ready. I could easily dial up this look by adding more or different jewelry and perhaps switching out the suede boots for metallic or patent leather.
This sparkly top is the perfect blend of festive and relaxed. It’s from Italian brand Momoni, and I purchased in Milan. (I’m wearing the Small, and would probably size down if I purchased again.)
It’s lightweight enough for mild climates (or overheated interiors) and layers easily underneath a jacket.
Here are a few more sparkly tops:
These corduroy jeans are a great Little Black Pants alternative. They’re from US brand AG, but I purchased them in London while shopping with Annie (and had them hemmed once home). I haven’t found this color anywhere online since, so am glad I snapped them up. The color IRL is a warm dark chocolate.
The boots were also a London purchase, from a new-to-me brand, Blue Velvet. (Made in Italy.) They don’t seem to ship outside the UK; here are some similar boot styles:
Someone asked last week about this mustard yellow leather jacket I purchased not long after my color analysis in 2019. I still have it, and still wear it! (It’s Lafayette 148 NY, purchased from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.)
One of the best things I’ve found about shopping within my seasonal palette (Spring) and Gamine style profile is that everything works together! My wardrobe is more cohesive, and I’m able to easily combine older with newer pieces.
