Holiday Outfit Inspiration

I know I can't be the only one who goes through nearly everything in her closet when I'm trying to find something to wear... Especially during the holidays when it's fun to dress up! Whether it be for a holiday party, Christmas day or anything else this season, there are so many fun ways to style an outfit and be holiday ready. And whether you're getting dressed up or staying more casual, you can still look *super* cute doing it! These five outfits are easy to mix and match pieces with and are perfect for all holiday season long, but beyond that too:

MAC Lipstick 'Half-n-Half' // Statement Necklace // Striped Tulle Shirt // Essie 'Bachelorette Bash' // Criss Cross Ring // Embellished Clutch // Sparkle Heels // Druzy Earrings // MK Watch // Pencil Skirt

When I saw this adorable tulle embellished top online I bought it knowing it would go fast! I love that it can be dressed up or down and I especially love it with this pretty statement necklace. I'm absolutely loving rose gold lately and the necklace's beading in person is more rose gold so I love the way these sparkly heels look with this outfit!

Lace Top // Eye Shadow Palette // Beaded Statement Earrings // Loren Hope Cuff // Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody // Black Suede Heels // Gold Bracelet // Ruffle Pencil Skirt

I couldn't possibly love this ruffle pencil skirt any more, and not to mention the color! Laura Mercier has a new palette with colors that match this outfit so perfectly, it also makes for a great Christmas gift! And these block heels are my favorite shoes; I'm thinking it's time to order the black because I love the pair I have in the tan suede - they're SO comfy.

Velvet Cold Shoulder Dress // Embellished Plaid Pumps // Agate Statement Earrings // BITE Matte Lip Crayon in 'Glacé' // Black Leather Clutch // Cobalt Wool Coat

When you have a bright colored coat, you don't need anything but a simple outfit. I *love* this coat and the color, and love it even more with black. Velvet is so perfect for the holiday season and this dress is only $60!

Embellished Heels // Sequin Top // Black Jeans // Embellished Hair Pins // Kendra Scott Cuff // Crystal Statement Bracelet // Velvet Knot Clutch // YSL Lip Stain #401

This is hands down my favorite holiday look! You NEED to see the back of this sequined top; it has *the* cutest velvet bows! I love this outfit so much, but I also love that every piece can be mix and matched to make other outfits to wear all season - and some even all year - long. I've never seen these heels before, but they're so cute and they're 30% off right now! And can we talk about this velvet knot clutch?? Talk about a perfect holiday piece!

Cable Knit Sweater // Essie 'Bubbles Only' // Pearl Knotted Necklace // Gold Bangle // Tory Burch Wristlet // Plaid Scalloped Heels // Dress Pants

What's better than plaid for the holidays? Oh yeah, heels that are plaid AND have a scallop detailing! I love these cute little shoes paired with a cozy cable knit sweater, and I'd love this just as much with jeans! These dress pants look sort of "blah" here, but check them out - because they're actually super cute!
