When it comes to dressing for the holidays, I really like to look at the details. Sure, you could just throw on a sparkly dress, sky high heels, and a bold red lip, but I tend to gravitate towards something a bit more understated. A perfectly cozy sweater, tailored pants, and maybe an pop of detail with a festive hair clip or clutch. It’s a more understated way to dress for special occasions, and I find that the pieces mix so much better into my wardrobe this way. I can reach for these styles again and again, holiday party or not. And even better? They make for great gifts. Which is why I am so happy to have partnered with Ann Taylor to share some of my favorite picks with you today.
Cozy Knits // I absolutely love sweaters (I know, shocker) so while I really was drawn to this camel knit featured in my outfit, I also really like the idea of something a bit more bold as a gift. This Striped sweater in red tones is so cute, and I know will make for a great gift for a friend of mine.
Tailored Pants // I actually saw these pants on the mannequin at Ann Taylor while I was shopping and was immediately in love. The lace detailing on the bottom? So chic, and really adds a nice touch to a simple look.
Festive Hair Accessories // I love love love that hair clips are having a big moment again, and Ann Taylor has some really cute choices. The velvet hair bows featured below are my favorites.
Velvet please // Speaking of velvet, how about a simple but elegant velvet clutch? I love to reach for velvet this time of year, and in clutch-form it will make for a great gift to give (or maybe just to keep). Bonus points for an oversize bow detail!
