If you’re leaning into a festive but not-super-dressy Thanksgiving (or other fall/winter occasion) this year, a couple of looks to make your day feel special (I will be wearing this dress with burgundy velvet heels):
1 // Leather Lady. I love the look of a pair of leather/faux-leather pants in a rich brown color (look for less with these or these) and a cableknit sweater like this or this. Finish with suede pointed toe flats or mules (these are on my lust list, and I also adore these). Alternately, if you prefer a skirt, this $28 style (!) would be unreal with an on-trend knit top. And if it’s a top you’re after, I can’t stop staring at this Tuckernuck beauty (also love this under-$30 Target steal).
3 // Big Boots. This sweater is incredible with skinny jeans and these to-die-for over-the-knee boots (currently 40% off!). If the sweater is not your vibe, a chic blazer would be incredible with those boots — I’m currently lusting after one from the label Blaze Milano (this one is on sale; look for less with this or this).
5 // Statement Sweater. Perhaps the simplest route is to zhush up your favorite jeans with a new, punchy sweater. A few favorite recent finds:
THIS MOHAIR SEZANE (ESPECIALLY THE CAMEL HEATHER AND GREEN COLORS)
7 // Dressed-Down Dress. An easy-to-wear, non-restricting dress in a fun print/pattern/texture that does all the hard work — something like an autumnal Hill House nap dress, this Ganni, this velvet tunic, this eyelet tunic in the brown color (ideal with these OTKS), or this $32 Target score.
And a couple of other random last-minute notes/finds for the occasion:
+Will be making this mulled wine recipe for our family stroll around Central Park.
+Eyeing these poppers — mini would flip!
P.P.S. More statement sweaters here.
P.P.P.S. Amazing holiday ornaments.
