Yes, 2013 is coming to an end. We know exactly what you’re feeling, but don’t worry.. the best is yet to come! Holiday fesitivities, that is!  A cozy time of gathering with loved ones with plenty of gift shopping, dinner parties, and of course tons of snapshots.

Let’s face it, between all the holiday chaos  we don’t have time for a “Omg what do am I going to wear?” dilemma, so we’ve made your must-have list for early preparation; one that will make your fashionably late excuse, one worth while.

1. Blazer

Blazers are an essential and we don’t realize how much we need them until the time comes.
Other than for professional settings, having a blazer to layer over your dress will allow you to stay warm and still look edgy and chic.
(P.S. Still cold? It’s okay to hide an additional small sweater under to warm up, even if it doesn’t match, as long as it’s not visible.)

2. Clutch

Truth is, you’ll always need a clutch. Whether you’re going to the holiday work party or having dinner at his parents’ house, it is the most practical and versatile accessory that will always come in handy. It’s okay to play it safe by going with solid colors that fit any outfit! Besides, with the right fabrics and prints, you can play it off for multiple occasions.

3. Anything Velvet

Anything velvet screams holidays! Not only does thick velvet fabric give you extra warmth and comfort, it gives you a classic look that will have you showered in compliments. Whether you do a classic a-line skirt or a skater dress, velvet is def a must-do!

4. Sheer Tights

Sheer tights are on the top list for the holidays!
Not only do they add detail to your ensemble but they allow you to layer that perfect dress or skirt you
absolutely love but were going to ditch due to the weather. Rain or shine, wear the dress!


5. Black Booties

The classic black bootie is your go-to shoe for any occasion. Dress it up or dress it down, it goes perfect for any holiday look.
Do a peep-toe with sheer tights or  play with your inner punk with zippered or studded embellishments.
