The holiday season is officially upon us and that means lots of parties and family gatherings to attend.  I have a few go-to holiday outfit combinations that work in pretty much any setting.  A nice pair of velvet pants paired with a blouse or a cami and blazer is a great and easy way to dress for your special holiday occasions.   I also really like anything sheer or sequined for the holidays.  This sheer star print H&M blouse is a super chic and affordable top that is perfect for a holiday party!  Whether it is drinks with friends or a NYE party, this top can be worn with so many different outfit combinations.  Today I paired it with my favorite J Brand velvet pants for a chic black on black look.  If you wanted a dressier look I could easily swap out the pants for a leather pencil skirt or sequined bottoms.  If you need help finding the perfect outfit for your upcoming holiday parties, let me style you!

I've always loved wearing black and since I've lived in NYC, my obsession with black has reached another level.  Black is always a safe option and it looks great on everyone.  I have been searching for a great black and white striped top for awhile now and I actually found one from a different brand that was 100% silk and cost $200.  I was about to pull the trigger, but then one day when I was browsing H&M I spotted this blouse that gave the exact same look I was going for at  a fraction of the price!  I know that this blouse will not last as long as the more expensive silk version, but I think I will get a few uses out of it for the season which makes it worth it.  Today I paired it with my favorite black skinny jeans and my Anine Bing lace camisole.  One of my favorite styling tricks is layering lace under a button down or tee so it peaks out a little.  This outfit is perfect for a casual holiday party or dinner out with friends.

Elevated pajama dressing continues to be one of my favorite trends this season.  There is nothing more comfortable than a great pair of silk pajamas and this blouse has the comfort and the detail that makes it the perfect top for a night out!  I love the slight off the shoulder detail and the stripes.  Today I paired it with my new favorite high waisted Paige denim and M. Gemi classic nude pumps.  This top is so unique and the best part is it is super affordable!  For a laid back vibe, half tuck it into the jeans.  To shop this outfit, click the links above and below.

Lately I have been obsessed with graphic t-shirts.  This tee from Topshop is not only affordable, but it has that perfect lived in look.  The stripes across even remind me of the new Gucci aesthetic.  As we move from fall to winter, I will be able to layer this tee under jackets or sweaters.  Today I paired it with my red satin bomber for a sporty look.  This pop of red makes for the perfect statement piece.  I dressed the look up by adding my nude pumps, but if I wanted to make this more casual, a pair of white sneakers would work perfectly.  To shop this outfit, click the links above and below.
