How do you look dressy but still relaxed and comfortable this holiday season? Style expert Mary Barrios has put together a couple of looks for us that don’t involve the traditional red and green.
The key to looking dressy yet casual this holiday season is simplicity. Minimalistic elegance goes a long way.
A dressy sweater may be a hard item to find, but once you’ve found it, you will fall in love with it. A sweater such as this light grey one, which has a shawl drape over the shoulders and back is not only elegant but also very comfortable and feminine.
Pair it with wide-leg winter white trousers for added elegance and a very slimming look. Add a pair of silver sequined loafers and statement silver jewelry to complete this look, which can go from day to night and from party to after-party.
A Navy Christmas
For a very casual and polished daytime look, you don’t have to sacrifice style or comfort! Wear a dark knitted sweater, such as this navy blue one, over a plain white collared blouse.
Add a pair of dark patterned trousers, like these black and navy floral pants, for a more modern and chic look. Plain trousers are just that – plain!
Pair this ensemble with black ankle booties, a medium-sized bag in matching colors and add a pop of bright color with glossy red nail polish. This is a look that could be worn in the evening, but is most appropriate for a day-to-afternoon party.
