As we all know, the holiday season is upon us and it is marked with all the glitz and glam that this time of year is known for. And while I am loving all of the sparkle, I also love the simpler holiday styles. These are equally as chic and trendy but can be worn to the more casual occasions.
Macy’s has such a wide selection of clothing to fit just about any event. They’ve got you covered from casual holiday potlucks to black tie formal parties. I wanted to create a couple of looks that are fit for a special occasion but can still be worn after the holiday season. We all have those garments in our wardrobes that you can only really wear once or twice a year. These outfits will carry you through December and even into the New Year.
So in order to create a casual, chic holiday look, you have to take note of the most current fashion trends. One of those trends is the volume sleeve. Bell sleeves have become all the rave and are the perfect way to add a little drama without being over the top. These two blouses by City Chic do just that in their own way. The first off the shoulder top is in a beautiful cranberry color reminiscent of holiday décor. It has a cascading bell sleeve which is unique and sure to be a hit. I paired this with what is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands of denim, Celebrity Pink, and nude pumps as not to take away from the look. The second blouse is a classic black with a more traditional bell sleeve. To add a little interest to this outfit, I paired it with a faux leather skirt in a khaki green color. I love how the color is not one that you commonly see in leather skirts and it paired well with the black top and my added black booties.
Both of these looks are sort of a play on the traditional red and green outfits that are normally associated with the holidays. They each have those elements but in a new and modern way.
