Christmas

WHAT TO WEAR: THIS HOLIDAY

IMG_0154

Crazy to think that Christmas is this week! The weather in NYC lately hasn’t exactly been the “Winter Wonderland” of my dreams but I’m never opposed to warmer weather.

What I am very excited about? Giving my parka a break and wearing one of my most favorite Aritzia wool coats but this time adding a pop of red.

I wasn’t always into the color red or much color at all really since moving to NYC as you can probably tell from my numerous posts raving on neutral color palettes. However, when it comes to the holidays — I think it’s important to switch it up and get a little festive. Now this does not mean go break out your “ugly sweater” but embrace a little color when it comes to #sweaterweather.

This sweater is my new favorite from American Eagle Outfitters. It’s the perfect shade of cherry red that looks amazing on a variety of skin tones and an ideal cropped length.

I decided to continue the holiday fun and work a little velvet into my outfit — my American Eagle Outfitters Velvet – X Jeggings.

When it comes to velvet – I think it’s best to go classic. You can’t go wrong with a black velvet pant. These are a subtle way to wear this seasonal trend and add a new addition to your closet full of black skinnys.

A simple pom-pom beanie also from AEO and my red Kate Spade Saturday bag and I’m ready to celebrate the holidays in style!
