The Holidays are already stressful with family, and food, and what to bring, and gifts, and, and, and, the list goes on.  Your outfit shouldn’t be part of the stress.  We all just want to look and feel cute, while still being able to eat all the things, right?  Here are six outfit recipes that will keep you looking classic, timeless, and chic for all your holiday gatherings whether they are totally casual or on the dressier side.

First I want to start by listing a few overall trends of the season –

  • Oversized– all the jackets and cardigans this fall/winter and holiday season are meant to be oversized. When in doubt, slouch it back a little and make it look like it’s falling off your shoulder on purpose because duh, fashion.
  • Pretty little tanks(and bralettes) – underneath everything. A HUGE trend this season is tucking in your layering piece and letting that oversized cardi/jacket fall right into place over top. It won’t matter if it’s oversized and falling off of you because everything underneath is oh so pretty.  This also means that when your bra strap shows (as long as it’s a pretty bralette) it’s ok!  It’s actually on trend to let your bralette peak out underneath all those chunky sweaters we’ll be wearing for the next 5 months.
  • All the textures– meaning the fluffier/furrier the better. Faux fur is everywhere, so is anything and everything soft and fluffy and cozy.  If it speaks to you, go for it! I promise you’ll be so happy and so comfy.

Below are the best holiday recipes in our collection! I’m even adding in my tips and tricks that you can apply to your everyday outfits.  And trust me, these are all outfits you can wear year after year because they’re timeless, classic, feminine, and chic – and those things never go out of style <3

  1. Color Block Shawl Cardi –

This piece will literally do the work for you.  Throw it on over a cami or turtleneck with a pair of skinnies and an easy slide on mule or a boot depending on the weather and you’re set!  This piece is so comfy yet looks so expensive.  The best part is, it feels like you’re wearing a blanket, but you’ll look (and feel) like a million bucks!

What you’ll need:

 

  1. Babo Cardi –

This cardigan is one size, so soft, and matches basically everything.  It’s oversized to perfection and it’s probably the best Thanksgiving outfit on the list.  The mix of colors paired with the wooden buttons are a perfect pair for this fav.

What you’ll need:

 

  1. Textured Cardi – Blush/Grey Mix –

Whoever said the holidays meant you must wear red?  We’re all about blush instead! This cardigan is incredibly soft and it has perfect pops of grey which help so that it’s not overly feminine/girly.  It feels so cozy but again this one is super rich and timeless. This would be perfect for your “Friendsgiving” party or literally any holiday party that you want to give a little extra to.

What you’ll need:

 

  1. Mix Color Thread Midi Cardi –

The perfect way to mix up a basic cardigan is with this Mix Color Thread Midi Cardi.  The colors and the mixed thread makes it anything but ordinary, yet it’s also super easy to wear.  Again this is one of those cardigans that goes with everything.  We paired it with a pop of color underneath as an alternative to the likely choice of wearing ivory, black, or grey under it. Although all of those colors work with it too which is why this one has to be on the list of perfect holiday outfit recipes.  It’s comfy & cozy with a little bit of super subtle sparkle mixed in throughout.

What you’ll need:

 

  1. Maeven Turtleneck Pullover –

I will personally party in this turtleneck all day long.  Have you ever seen a more perfect holiday sweater??  It’s pure perfection.  It’s cozy, mixed with sparkly, mixed with furry & fuzzy.  This one hardly needs an explanation. Give the front a little tuck or leave it out, whichever you prefer and feel the most comfortable with.

What you’ll need:

 

  1. Faux Fur Sleeve Sweater –

This sweater is everything! It flatters the figure and the faux fur sleeves will have you walking into every room like you own the place. The color is a beautiful light mauve that doesn’t wash you out, it’s the perfect alternative to the blacks/greys/taupes/etc that so many of us gravitate toward during the colder months.  The sleeves have a subtle animal print layered in with the faux fur.  It’s simply gorgeous!

What you’ll need:

All items can be found on the website at www.shopavabelle.com, as well as our booth at All Things Detroit on Sunday, November 4.  Can’t wait to meet you and personally style you for all your upcoming holiday gatherings.
