I’m loving the idea of keeping it cool and casual for the holidays this year. For me, that means festive pants in lieu of party dresses, chunky heels, and boho vibes all around.

For this look, I went with a mash up of some of my favorite current trends—statement sleeves, velvet everything, and metallic footwear. Tip: A bell sleeve is a simple way to add immediate drama to a look. It’s a silhouette that will definitely be a holiday gathering go-to for me this season. Extra points for a festive shade! This sweater is from CeCe by Cynthia Steffe, who makes loads of feminine basics fit for the holiday season.

This is my first pair of velvet skinnies (I’ve dabbled in the velvet slip dress and tank department so far) and I’m in love. They are beyond comfortable and make me want to get my dance on!  I feel a bit like “Prince does the holiday” in the absolute best possible way! Edgy, cool, and a little over the top. Head to toe look is from Macy’s. They have everything! It’s a one-stop holiday dressing shop for sure. Fun fact: I live very close to the famous Macy’s Herald Square here in NYC and it has saved me many a days when I decide I have nothing to wear with hours to spare before an event or shoot.

Happy holidays you guys! Let me know what holiday occasions you’ll be dressing up for in the comments. More holiday dressing ideas to come!
