Home for the Holidays
Shimmer and shine
This year, unless you have the hook up for a private charter on Santa’s sleigh, home for the holidays is going to be just that – at home. But, that doesn’t mean that festive attire isn’t part of the plan. Here are some holiday trends to keep you in cozy couture throughout the season.
Billowy bows: Not just for presents anymore! Whether you’re into car-topper-sized ribbons or delicate knots, the bow is back.
Textured knits: Nothing’s better than a comfy sweater in cooler weather. Besides the ole standbys like cable knits and ribbing, this year’s knits will showcase surface embellishments such as pompoms, beads, and fringe, as well as open back and cold-shoulder cutouts. Bonus: Extra adornments up top make for a killer Zoom presence.
Sherpa: Okay, there is something better than a comfy sweater. And it’s sherpa. No longer relegated to the Himalayas, this lightweight but warm faux-fleece piece is a great addition to your closet. Wear a shorter version for a more casual look or sport a longer style to exude elegance. Either way, you’ll feel like you’re being hugged by a giant teddy bear – something we could all appreciate this holiday season.
