I thought it might be fun to share some simple but festive holiday outfit ideas with pieces that can be remixed to wear later.
This year, it’s looking like our holiday “parties” will be online. So I’ve shifted the focus for my holiday party outfits to above the waist…”tabletop dressing,” so to speak.
A casual, colorful holiday outfit
My first tip to add the “Festive” to a Festive-not-Fussy look is to wear color near your face. It can be a jacket, a scarf, or a sweater. Be sure it’s one of your best colors; you’ll look more vibrant and cheerful (and you can use a light hand with your makeup).
I purchased this red knit tweed jacket at the beginning of the year, but haven’t worn it much yet. Not because I don’t love it, but…circumstances. I’d intended to include it as a color pop in travel wardrobes, hopefully 2021 will provide an opportunity!
Bold jewelry will show up better on camera than diminutive pieces, but you don’t have to go gargantuan. Statement earrings or necklaces and brooches are all great options. Have fun with it!
Here’s a little video I shared on Instagram:
