Layering is your chilly weather best friend; start with your favorite super skinny jeans to keep things simple (these are a holiday trip necessity!) top them off with a knit tee and finally, grab your coziest cardigan. We love the eyelash knit of this boyfriend cardigan, it’s got the perfect combo of soft and sparkle. These three pieces will stand the test of all your holiday plans.

Dress Up Dress Down Dress

You never know where the holidays are going to take you. Be prepared for anything from a night out on the town or dinner at your bestie’s house. A great shift dress is the perfect silhouette to go from dressy to casual with ease. The ombre pattern and grey tones of this dress make it great for any occasion. Style it with a distressed denim jacket for a simple yet classic look or let the jewelry do the talking for a more sophisticated finish. Decadent faux pearls make for style statement that you’ll want to wear every day

Double Duty Leggings

Make your style go the distance. Be sure to pack fashionable staples that will do double duty. Faux leather leggings may not seem versatile, but they’ll sure take your sweaters and tops to the next level. There’s nothing better than a classic striped sweater, except when you pair it with these edgy leggings. Headed out? Faux leather leggings with a lattice neck top equals holiday style done right.

Go with Everything Final Touches

The best pieces are the finishing touches.. Save precious cargo space by packing a pair of ankle boots that you’ll happily wear door to door. Passports, car keys, books, they all have to go somewhere too. Toss them into a sizable tote with fun chain straps for a put together look. Need a little extra something? A light metallic scarf will give you an extra layer of warmth and add a little shine to every look.
