For a holiday ensemble that’s festive but not over-the-top, start with what you likely already have in your closet. Mixing a few sparkly pieces with basics like a black coat, button-down shirt, and booties is a simple way to create a holiday-ready outfit in no time. Silver and gold threads give subtle shimmer to this tweed mini that can be worn from day into night. For a more casual style, I would pair the skirt with a cable sweater and moto or western ankle boots.
I’d recently been on the hunt for a bow-tie blouse and found this classic cream and black style at Ann Taylor. Not only is the blouse beautiful worn alone, but the bow is both adjustable and removable, leaving endless versatility for styling other ways–you’re essentially getting two pieces for the price of one! For even more texture and interest, I completed this ladylike look with a faux calf hair car coat and punchy pink structured mini satchel.
