Holiday Dressing

As the end of the year approaches, we often find ourselves in a flurry of social events. Holiday invitations start filling up our calendars, and we begin to plan our outfits for the whole month leading into the new year. Since the time of the pandemic, the dynamics of social gatherings have changed drastically. Now, the celebrations are smaller and more intimate, giving us the freedom to break away from the traditional formal attire.

"Wear whatever you want, it doesn’t have to be formal. Anything goes. There are no rules anymore." - Kirsten

Special Occasions

Whether you are going to the Nutcracker, an office party, entertaining at home, visiting a friend, going to a cocktail party, out to dinner, travelling by car or train, participating in a cookie or gift exchange, going skating, or attending a new year’s eve party, the possibility of dressing up in different styles is endless.

Reinvent and Restyle

This season, take the clothes that you already have in your closet, reinvent and restyle them to create fresh new looks for the holiday. Try adding a pair of black velvet or sequin pants and style them differently for each event paired with items you already own. Play a little. See what you need to complete the looks. Maybe you just need a new coat, some jewelry, or a new pair of shoes.

For an extra touch of style, add in vintage accessories like a big pearl necklace from Wanted Jewelry. The focus here is on re-using, re-purposing, and wearing your clothes again and again. After all, fashion is all about expressing your style and creativity.

Accessorize for a New Look

Remember this golden rule from Kirsten: “Change the shoe, change the jewelry, change the look!” Accessorizing can dramatically transform your outfit, so don't forget to experiment with scarves, coats, shoes, and earrings. You'll be surprised at how these small changes can make a significant impact on your overall look.


Holiday dressing in this new era of fashion is all about self-expression, creativity, and sustainability. It's about redefining the norms, breaking away from the traditional, and reimagining the possibilities. So, this holiday season, don't be afraid to play around with your outfits. Wear what you love, love what you wear, and most importantly, have fun with it!
