I cannot believe Christmas is less than a week away! As much as I love festive outfits of red and green, I thought I’d put together a completely untraditional holiday outfit today. I have a couple of “traditional” outfits coming later in the week but for today, I’m just going to have fun 😉
When I think of the holidays, a few things come to mind…velvet, sparkles, jewel tones and darker prints. I don’t normally gravitate toward dark clothing, but when I saw this dress at the Eliza J showroom at NYFW, I knew I had to put it on my holiday wishlist. The print is absolutely stunning in person and I just love the smooth, velvet background. To add interest, I wanted to add a pop of color that played well off the print yet something that was equally bold on it’s own….which leads me to this glorious coat! Purple is not a typical color that you see on coats and I knew it would fit in perfectly with my collection. It can styled with a sunny yellow for a fun and playful look, black and white for a classic look, saturated navy for a chic look and blush pink for a girly look. It also comes in the most adorable bright yellow *swoon*. I absolutely love bright coats during the winter and think they are such a fun element to otherwise dreary weather. When choosing the bag, I originally went for my glittery party clutch, but then I found this bag that happened to match perfectly to my coat and I was sold. I layered a delicate gold necklace for a bit of sparkle and tada! I’m ready to party 😉

15 Fashion Bloggers talk about their Christmas Outfits + Traditions!
Shelbee: “I never was a fan of holiday-themed clothing at all, but this year I decided to go outside of my comfort zone for my Christmas outfit. I chose this adorable black and green dress from Rosegal which features a festive winter scene on the skirt. It is short sleeved so I layered a long sleeve back tee under it for extra warmth and my silver velvet booties completely the look perfectly. Happy Holidays to everyone!”
Kristin: “Our last two years in Germany we have had friends and family come visit us for Christmas. This year my husband and I will be enjoying the holiday by ourselves (along with our pup) so we will make a nice dinner at home and pop some champagne. That’s why I’m keeping it casual with a bell sleeve sweater, jeans, and red heels. Happy Holidays, everyone!”
Linda: “This has been my Christmas Day outfit for the last three years. A skirt I found at Winners ( TJMaxx equiv) over a decade ago but on that is timeless. Sometimes I wear it with a black cashmere sweater or with a white lace sweater. I love the festive yet fun look of Santa and the skateboards.
Merry Christmas from my home to yours ( and from Lou too).”Lizzie: “I love untraditional holiday looks and think this look would be perfect for Christmas Eve! I adore the velvet and sparkle with the unexpected color combo and print.”
Lee: “This year we are spending Christmas at the beach. I am packing light with comfortable clothing. This outfit is perfect for any occasion. I love leather front leggings and this faux fur coat paired together!”
Monica: “Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate! Christmas is such a special time for me because growing up we had a lot of traditions in our household and some of those traditions I’ve taken with me in my own home with my fiance and fur babies. I hope everyone has a great Christmas!”
Chrissy: “Christmas morning starts at home in our pjs, but we’ve been known to drop in on family and friends as the day wears on.”
