Christmas/New Year’s Outfits for Men and Women – feat. Nate

5 more days until Christmas; can you believe it? And 11 more days until those New Year’s Eve parties begin. Holiday parties are the best time of the year to showcase your best style, whether it be formal, extravagant, or classy. Nate and I went for a more classy-vintage look:Image

Regarding men’s fashion: Collared shirts with cardigans are the way to go. Add a bow tie for some extra class and unique-ness. You can find bow ties of any patterns on Etsy – it’s basically the men’s version of a statement necklace.

As for me, I think houndstooth is the perfect pattern for a holiday party – it’s very much a winter pattern. Houndstooth usually comes in black in white, but I went for a beige houndstooth skirt to add warmth to the outfit. If I just wore black and white, the overall tone would come off as cold. To make the skirt the highlight of this outfit, I wore black everywhere else.

I especially love wearing black tights with black shoes. They merge into one and just have a really Β chic appearance.

I look way too happy in this next one.

OOTD: Pineapple Dress for the Win

OOTD: Pineapple Dress for the Win

Last night I went to a Secret Santa party and instead of being the conventional ‘holiday festive,’ I added my own twist to Christmas wear. The three colors that generally signify Christmas are straight up red, green, and gold; instead, I chose for my color palette olive green, maroon, and pale yellow. I think that all of these colors go so much better together than the typical crayon colors. The main focus of this outfit is, of course, the pineapple dress. It adds a great Hawaiian twist to the holiday season without being obnoxious.

Because it even gets cold in SoCal, I paired this outfit with black tights, a brown cardigan, and an olive green jacket. Details will be listed down below.
