The Fashion Magpie Sachin Babi Top

What to Wear for the Holidays.

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

+A sweater dress feels just right for the occasion.  I’m into this one in the ivory or burgundy.  Get the look for less with this $28 steal.  I love that green color!

+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.

+These silk chantung cigarette pants ($198) would look incredible with a glitzy blouse or a chunky knit sweater, depending on the party’s vibe.

+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…!!!!

Festive Footwear

+Poms are IT for fun holiday footwear, and my top picks are either these velvet kitten heels from Aquazzura ($650) or these wallet-friendly Sam Edelmans ($129).

+For a major statement, these velvet and feather heels from Marion Parke are TDF.

+These Valentinos!!!!

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).

Alternately, go full-on lace with this top ($205) and coordinating pants from hot label Ganni!  Maybe with the Sam Edelmans?!

P.S.  I would wear all of these looks with this chic winter white coat ($160).  That, or this amazing fur collar.

P.P.S.  What to dress your mini in for the holidays.


  1. I love all of these suggestions. I got a beautiful dark floral Ganni dress for Thanksgiving, but need to keep my eye out for a Christmas ensemble. Thanks for the ideas!
