1.  Slip on a Sparkly Tunic

Dressing head-toe in shades of black and gray look sophisticated and slimming. Add a sparkly fabric with metallic fibers to your monochromatic look, and you create a holiday outfit that is glamorous and chic. Suede boots, a velvet bag, and swingy beaded earrings make you party-ready. Get ready to shine!

3.  Turn a  Short Party Dress Into a Top

When you see a glam party dress you love but think it’s way too short to feel comfortable in, add a pair of leggings. By doing this, you are transforming your dress into a beautiful tunic. When you accessorize it with a sleek clutch and refined suede booties, you have a cool and edgy holiday evening outfit.

4.  Get Festive in a Green Asymmetrical Top

It’s Christmas, so why not wear something evergreen? This artsy green top was made for modern gals who like to dress with an edge. The asymmetrical hem is bold and dramatic and is perfect for holiday cocktail party mixing and mingling. Wear it with leather leggings for a sexy holiday vibe.

5.  Cozy up in a Long Sweater with a Christmas Vibe

A long sweater is always a great idea with leggings. This modern, color-blocked one will turn heads. Imagine cozying up with friends for a chat by the fire, drink in hand. Wouldn’t this red and burgundy mix look beautiful beside the flickering flames? I love the neckline too. It’s high like a turtleneck but more graceful. In other words, it is not going to bunch up any extra skin at your neck like a Christmas turkey.

    1. Hi Julia,
      I think they’re even comfier than jammies. One of my favorite ways to wear them is with an oversized soft cashmere sweater. Heaven! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I could live in leggings. I have never had anything feel so comfortable in all my life. The leather leggings look great. I wonder if they are more comfortable since the leather is only in the front. Hmmm…

    1. Hi Susanne, I’ve had leather leggings and leather leggings with the leather just in front, and yes, the latter is comfier. There’s more stretch, and they feel lighter too!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
