Only 6 days left until Christmas! If you’re like us there are still a few people left on your gift list. This weekend we’re finishing the hustle and bustle of shopping and preparing for the holidays so we can start truly enjoying the season with friends and family. For the girl on your list who loves, loves, loves everything fashion, here’s some seriously styish standouts. Check out our other Gift Guides too. Happy shopping!
No matter how you’re getting there (plane, road trip, etc.), we love head-to-toe black. It’s elegant, slimming and especially road resilient. Start with a few basic, comfortable pieces (chances are you already have some favorites in your closet), and add a coordinating scarf that can double as a blanket. Then add more black. Your travel day just got chic and easy! (Check out Asos for a ton of other great ‘blanket scarves’.)
If your winter escape includes cozying up in a winter cabin, think casual, comfortable, warm layers. You can create up to 7 outfits with our separates above, and fit it all in a carry-on. Just add socks, underwear and pajamas and you’re good to go – you have a weekend’s worth of cute outfits that work when you’re spending an evening at the local craft beer bar, or hunkering down fireside!
Because Christmas morning is only 16 days away, we’ve chosen our absolute favorite pajamas of the season – perfect for getting or gifting. J Crew is currently offering 25% off your purchase of $100+, and 30% off your purchase of $150+. And they have some of the best men’s, girls, and boys sleepwear too. So, you could take care of what you’re wearing, and cross multiple items off your gift list in one big holiday fell swoop!
Do you have some parties penciled in over the next few weeks? Mango has such an awesome selection of stylish party wear that we couldn’t help but feature it. We picked our favorites but there’s more to choose from too! The pieces are seriously affordable. Two of the dresses above are $119.99 and one is $129.99 – it’s hard to beat those prices. We love the line because the pieces are classically styled with just the right amount of holiday flare (more or less depending on your preference). And all the items coordinate so it’s easy to create one or two great looking outfits – you can be effortlessly celebratory in just a few clicks!
You know you want one. There are two kinds – one is the ultimate seasonal sweater that’s made a comeback from the 80’s and is the star of the very popular ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ party. The other is the more subdued version that is currently on-trend, cool and chic. We’ve compiled a selection of both, so you’re sure to find a festive sweater for both your ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ party, and any ultra festive mood that strikes! This one, this one and this one also make particularly great gifts for an office or white elephant party that calls for a humorous gift at an under $25 price point. If you’re looking for more over-the-top Christmas gear, check out Tipsy Elves. They have a ton of fun items including sweaters, leggings, jumpsuits and accessories, and a great selection for men and kids too!
There’s nothing like cutting down your own Christmas tree to infuse your weekend with holiday spirit (and by that we mean there’s nothing like strolling through a field of Christmas trees, picking the perfect one, and watching your husband/boyfriend saw it down and tie it to the top of the car). You need boots, cute, comfortable layers and Starbucks, and he’ll need gloves, twine, a tarp and a chainsaw. Where to go to forage in a Christmas tree forest?

Because some of your Holiday Gatherings may be right around the corner, the easiest way to pull together a seasonal outfit is to pair a festive dress or top with the basics you already have. What are you going to wear for your gift exchange with friends, that house party, the office party, your husband’s company dinner, Christmas Eve and the New Year’s party?! Whew! All our picks make it super easy to create the ideal outfit by simply adding the black basics and jeans that are already in your closet. The holidays just got easier, right? Cheers!
