We’re not too far off from Thanksgiving and the flurry of holiday gatherings that will lead us to Christmas/Hanukkah/whatever you celebrate. I got a headstart on the season by snagging, as I mentioned just yesterday, this festive jumpsuit in cheery red. I wish I’d acted faster on the Sachin + Babi top above, now on sale for $197, and also available in cheery coral-red, but it’s already sold out in my size! More picks below:
What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner
+This Jackie O.-esque funnel neck top in the chic-est oversized buffalo check is right up my alley — if your Thanksgivings are more informal, pair with jeans. If you dress up for the occasion, pair with cigarette pants and heels for a very Mad Men-esque look.
+Love this cranberry and navy lace dress ($325) for the occasion. Just the right level of dressiness for my taste.
+Love this pleated midi skirt ($198) with a silk button-down or cashmere crewneck.
+Still, this slightly staid dress ($198) is probably my favorite.
What to Wear to Holiday Cocktail Parties
+This cheery red Goen J. dress (on sale for $393) is sure to turn heads.
+Self-Portrait-esque, but for a fraction of the price. And RED!
+Velvet and asymmetric and by Ulla Johnson. Do I need to say more?
+A splurge to be sure but I am smitten with this opalescent top from Roland Mouret.
+This bow-backed satin top (on sale for $81) would be amazing with a high-waisted skirt or a pair of jeans!
+For those of you with a Revenge Body Situation, this dress…!!!!
+For a major statement, these velvet and feather heels from Marion Parke are TDF.
Statement Making Surprises
Drafting off yesterday’s post on trying something new, I’ve got a handful of unexpected treats for you to consider. First: this sheer, floral-appliqued $49 steal of a blouse from H+M. Maybe paired with those J. Crew silk shantung pants ($198) and the Aquazzura pom kitten heels ($650).
