3 elegant festive looks

Around here the weather is unseasonably warm, like 70 degrees in December, so we have to find creative ways to get into the spirit of the winter season. Thankfully, we are in full on holiday season so there are many opportunities to be cheerful and bright. Here are 3 outfits I put together as inspiration to help you get there. 

1. Classic

I chose to go monochrome with midnight blue. I paired a sleeveless merino turtleneck with cropped satin pants. Accessories are sleek black finishes - patent kitten heels, diamond studs, an acrylic modern clutch - with pops of red on the lip and nails. 

 2. Gamine

I went with a color classic, black, for this look. I chose pieces with playful texture - the lace sleeves and satin collar on the dress, the pin dots on the tights, the weave on the derby shoes, and the luster of the pearl earrings. Simply accessorized with a small, red box bag and a flushed, natural beauty look. 

3. Natural

I softened the palette for this look with earthy neutrals, olive and tans. The dress is the star here and the supporting players - the wrap, pumps, and clutch - are subdued and warm. The cuff serves as a statement piece, limiting the need for other jewelry. Finish the look with a lively coral lip and nail.
