What to Wear to Your Favorite Holiday Activities

Is it just us or come December does it feel like every time you turn around there’s another event to go to? It’s festive and exciting… but can be challenging on the “what the heck do I wear??” front. We love an LBD as much as the next person (probably more), but the holidays are the perfect time to get a little ~extra~ with your look. And tatty sweats are great for everyday Netflix binges, but cozy holiday movie nights call for something a little more special.

From snuggling up on the couch to your next holiday fête to cramming in last-minute shopping, we’ve got all the looks you need to make your December merry and bright.


❄️ Holiday Movie Night ❄️


There’s nothing like a cozy night in — with hot cocoa at the ready and lots of peppermint sticks — while the snow is falling outside and the holiday movies are at the ready (or just a classic Netflix fire crackling).

We love this sweater for cuddling up in — it’s the perfect blend of slouchy and casual with a little something special. Paired with classic leggings and fun socks, it’s got us looking for a couch and queuing up Home Alone.



🍸 Holiday Party 🍸


Finally! Holiday parties — complete with festive cocktails and good friends — are what our closet’s dream of all year. We love that come December, there are so many chances to get fancy and pull out all the stops — sequins, fur, tulle.

A cheery lace dress (in like a happy red, not a Scorsese red) is our go-to party look of the moment. We always reach for classic silhouettes with saucy details — like an exposed lace back. Add a pair of simple heels with a holiday touch — in this case the fabric of the year, velvet — and a festive wine bag that doubles as a gift and you’re ready to party the night away.


🎁 Holiday Shopping 🎁


There’s nothing like hitting all of your favorite stores around the holidays — the decor is glittering, the festive music is playing, and the joy is overflowing. Holiday shopping also calls for a bundled up look that will keep you warm and double up as a cute backdrop for all the ‘grammable shopping moments.

For our shopping excursions, we reach for a pom hat — fun and extra cozy — with a printed sweater and distressed denim. Booties are our go-to option to keep our feet warm on cold winter days when you’re walking all over the city or running errands. The finishing touch? A jacket with lots of pocket space — perfect for stashing cash when we’re holding too many bags to dig our wallet out of our purses.
