Style Tips

The Holiday season is officially here! Now that the craziness of Black Friday and Cyber week is over, it's time to focus on pieces that will get you through the Holidays fashionably.

From work Christmas parties to family get-togethers, having the right pieces to get you through the season is a must. I've rounded up 5 pieces that you can dress up or down no matter where life takes you during one of the craziest (and best) times of the year!

Here are 5 must-have pieces for the Holiday Season!

1. Glitter Tights

If you didn't wear a pair of glitter tights for the Holidays, did the Holidays actually happen? Seriously though. Nothing is more festive than a pair of glitter tights. You can dress them up with a silk or velvet dress, or dress it down with a sweater dress or mini skirt. Something magical happens when you wear some sparkle and these glitter tights deliver that magical feeling every single time. Even after the Holiday season, you can wear these out for date night, weddings or any other events you may have coming up this Winter!

2. Layered Dress

The layered dress has been everywhere on Pinterest and Instagram. It's an easy way to look trendy and classy at the same time. Or, if you're like me and don't particularly like showing bare arms when it's cold outside, layering is a great way to still look dressed up and wear a strapless dress. I love layering with blouses that have some texture or turtlenecks for a more casual look. My tip: layer with a bodysuit so you don't see any creases under your dress.

3. Dainty Jewelry

Skip the chunky necklaces and bangles for smaller minimalistic pieces. There's no need to splurge here either. Stores like H&M and Zara offer a lot of great pieces for under $30 so you can step up your accessory game for the Holiday season. I love layering small necklaces together and wearing small to medium size earrings for extra oomph. If you're heading to a party or an event, feel free to add rings and bracelets too! With dainty jewelry, the more the merrier.

4. Faux Fur

Nothing is more Holiday appropriate then your best furs - faux furs that is! I love throwing my faux furs over dresses on my way to Holiday parties. Faux fur coats come in a variety of colours, styles, and textures, so finding the right coat for you shouldn't be too hard. If you're new to owning a faux fur jacket, opt for black, tan or brown to get maximum wear.

5. Warm Tights

Baby, it's cold outside! Sometimes you just need a little extra layer on your legs to keep you warm. Enter, warm tights. In my opinion, every woman should own a pair of warm tights. No need to layer knee-high socks over your tights anymore. These From Rachel Warm Tights come with the knee-high socks built in and are they ever warm! I'm guilty of not only wearing them out, but at home with an oversized sweater too.
