How to Make a Statement this Holiday Season

Can you guys believe how quickly this year has flown by? It’s pretty crazy. I really love this time of year though, and I’m so excited for all of the holiday parties and events that are around the corner. Usually, for holiday parties, I’ll wear a classic dress like a wrap dress or a chic jewel-tone midi dress. However, this year, I wanted to go for a look that was a little more unexpected than the typical holiday dress.

I wanted to create a look from classic wardrobe items that are worth the investment, because they never go out of style. My trick for selecting timeless pieces is to find ones that always seem to perfectly walk the line between feminine and slightly edgy. This way, your look always feels fashion-forward and on-trend.

With this in mind, I thought it would be fun to create a holiday look that was exactly that – classic, feminine, and just a little bit edgy. Here, I wore a pair of red Paige Constance leather skinny pants (similar here and  velvet version here). These pants are super flattering, and the slit on the inside of each ankle helps to elongate my silhouette. In order to really create a statement look, I added a Paige Ambrosine red zebra top (affordable here and here).

Animal print is huge right now, and will still be big after the holidays and all through the spring. Also, I love how this top provides a lot of coverage for the colder weather, but also is sheer enough to be slightly sexy for going out.
To create a full holiday look, I added a pair of Paige’s new silver leather heels (affordable here and here). These heels are perfect for highlighting the formal element of the other pieces, but can also be paired with more casual pieces for a more laid back, feminine look. Heels like these are great, because they are so versatile. To finish off my look, I went with a Mango Red Suede Jacket and carried the Chloé Small Tess Bag. That’s my favorite thing about all of the pieces I put together for this look – they truly are worth the investment, because you can wear them in so many different ways for so many different seasons and occasions.
