Casual Holiday Looks

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”, so just keep it simple with tops, bottoms, or dresses that are simple yet elegant! It’s all in the details!  –Melly Shuwanty 

 

This holiday look is the perfect blend between classy and functional. You can’t go wrong with a cozy knit, festive scarf, and a pair of Hunter boots when out trudging through the snow, because baby, it really is cold outside. And of course, nothing screams “holiday” quite like finishing a look off with a red lip! –Michelle ma Belle

Fur is always festive.  Just to be clear I don’t think you need an excuse for fur, but if ever you wanted to sport it – the holiday season is your chance.  Lunch with the ladies is infinitely more fabulous with fur around your neck, bonus points for a color that doesn’t occur in nature. –The Kirsty Files

I love this holiday look because of the versatility of this dress. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, and it’s simplicity makes it easy to accessorize! Perfect for the holidays!  –Autumn Sorelle
