I love this lace tee for casual holiday gatherings because it can stand alone, and it also looks great under a jacket. Dress it down with jeans, or go edgy with leather leggings or velvet pants, or even tuck it into a sequin skirt for a dressier look. I’m sure it will surprise no one that I chose to style it with jeans.
Jeans, pumps, and a dressy top is my favorite way to glam it up for the holidays. With the exception of my husband’s office party, most of our holiday gatherings are on the more casual side, but I always want to look festive. These looks combine the best of both worlds!
To add some sparkle, I also ordered this necklace from J.Crew Factory. They have really pretty fashion jewelry and it’s affordable too.
I wasn’t planning to wear these earrings — I forgot to change them out for something smaller with more gold in them, but I think they work okay. I’m just more of a plain Jane and prefer to let the necklace take center stage.
I also added this rhinestone stretch bracelet and carried my metallic clutch. Both of these pieces add more sparkle and shine to the look, keeping it holiday appropriate even though I’m wearing jeans and suede pumps.
I carry this clutch year-round for date nights and other occasions when I want a bag with something a little extra.
I topped off the look with this textured faux fur coat. It’s so cute, plus WARM. I disagree, however, with the website saying to order one size down. I am wearing the small, and it was a little snug through the shoulders. I had to be careful putting it off and on. I would go with your normal coat size or size up if in between.
To keep the look more holiday, I wore these oxblood suede pumps. These are the L.K.Bennett brand that Kate Middleton is so fond of, and they’re gorgeous shoes, plus I love the lower heel.
I also styled the lace tee in the ivory, and this time I topped it off with a velvet blazer. I love the fit on this blazer; it’s so flattering, and perfect for throwing on top of a cami or tank top for a winter party.
This layered circle necklace adds a touch of bling, and again, I didn’t mean to keep those earrings in. I had brought another pair that I like better with this necklace, but forgot to put them on. D’oh!
