Before the clock strikes midnight and it’s time to belt out your best rendition of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ (does anyone actually know the words to that song?), you have to figure out what to wear for New Year’s Eve. And, let’s face it, that can be one tricky task. With celebrations ranging anywhere from a low-key night in, to ringing in 2019 at an extravagant hotel, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when pulling together a fun and festive ensemble. However, we fully believe that the key to any countdown-ready combo is texture, sparkle and shine, so we’ve laid out the anatomy of a few great NYE outfits to have you prepped for any kind of party.

what to wear for new years eve: polished silhouettes

Perfectly Polished Silhouettes

LBD to the rescue (seriously, is there anything it can’t do?). A structured and streamlined little black dress is the perfect pick if you’re not sure what to wear. It’s timeless and versatile, yet allows you to add your own personal touches to completely set your look apart. Because nobody likes to show up wearing the same outfit as somebody else. The solution? Pair a plush suede jacket in a blush shade over your get-up for a fresh take on this classic piece.

 

what to wear for new years eve: light catching metallics

Light-Catching Metallics

We have three words for this festive top: shining, shimmering, splendid (sorry, couldn’t help it). A light-catching metallic piece is a shoo-in for a winning New Year’s Eve ensemble. To finish off your look, we say go for gold (or silver in this case) and pair a python print purse and button front mini for an outfit that’s as fun as your 2019 will be. If you’re going to be celebrating in a chilly climate, you can always wear a sparkly pair of tights for an extra layer to keep your legs warm.

 

what to wear for new years eve: pretty pleats

Pretty Pleats

Let’s be honest, if there’s one thing we consider when we’re getting ready for New Year’s Eve, it’s making sure that our outfit will be fuss-free. Constantly adjusting elements of our ensemble is not on our agenda. A few pretty pleats and a glossy shine are a great way to spruce up a t-shirt silhouette without compromising comfort. A pair of stretchy denim (again, comfort is key) in a clean, dark wash will look both sleek and sophisticated. For your outer layer, we suggest choosing a moto jacket to lend an edgy finish.

 

what to wear for new years eve: soft and shiny textures

Soft and Shiny Textures

Have fun and play with different textures! If this is something you’ve never tried before, NYE is the perfect opportunity. After all, it’s the night of the year to go big or go home. Colored coated denim will add a little bit of shine and dimension to your ensemble. Dress them up by pairing them a slinky cami and chunky heels. And to finish your look, we’re loving a soft teddy jacket. It will perfectly contrast your edgy denim and open front styling will still allow you to show off your amazing outfit.

winter layering

During the winter months, it can be easy to lose your sense of style when your sole focus is to make sure you stay warm. Trust us, we get it. Current status: wrapped up in a blanket as we speak (er, write). When you have to pile on layer after layer, it feels like a losing battle to put together a cute ensemble underneath if there’s the chance that nobody is going to see it. And, let’s be honest, sometimes the end result looks a little bit like the kid from A Christmas Story. To help you master the art of winter layering, we’ve rounded up a few looks that won’t have you compromising style for warmth (and won’t have you sticking your arms out like a penguin).

 

winter layering: vest

You’re Simply the Vest

Going outside without a proper jacket during the winter may seem counter-intuitive, but with the right pieces, we promise you’ll stay warm. Start with a plaid button-down as your foundation. The pop of pattern underneath adds personality and the sneak-peek of color will inspire the rest of your look. Next, layer a classic cable knit sweater over your plaid. Not only are they warm, but they add another texture to your ensemble for added dimension. For your final layer, reach for a zip-up vest. With the right accessories (cue chunky scarf and wooly socks), you’ll feel ready to take on the day in this polished outfit.

 

winter layering: puffer jacket

Puff the Magic Layer

Seriously, we believe a puffer jacket is the most magical winter layer there is. It easily squishes down to become a packable piece, yet somehow keeps you toasty on even the coldest of days. Too good to be true? Nope. It gets even better. The puffer jacket has easily become one of the biggest winter trends of 2018 (and is sure to stick around in 2019) making it a street savvy style that pairs with everything, all while looking effortless and fashion forward. Layer yours over a long sleeve tee and finish the look with a versatile backpack and comfy shoes for a travel-ready ensemble.

 

winter layering: sweater jacket

Double (Sweater) Vision

What’s better than wearing one sweater at a time? Wearing two. Okay, we don’t actually mean bundling up in layer after layer of cozy sweaters, but we’re all for a textured sweater jacket layered over a chunky knit. A sweater jacket is not only extremely comfortable, but it also has the polished look of a classic moto jacket (#winning). Sneak an additional long sleeve top under your sweater if you need a bit more to bear the cold. Since it won’t be seen, the extra layer won’t detract from your amazing ensemble. Way to go. You. Are. Killin’. It.

 

winter layering: long cardigan

Take the Long Knit Home

A cardigan is undoubtedly a closet staple thanks to how easy it is to incorporate into your wardrobe on the daily. But if it’s being worn so often, how do you make it feel fresh and new? We’re currently obsessing over cardis with a long length and oversized pockets. When the temperatures are low, we’re super thankful for the extra fabric to keep us warm and a cozy spot for our hands if gloves aren’t quite cutting it. This easy-to-wear piece pairs well with denim for a day out, or fleece-lined leggings for a low-key night in.

As soon as it gets too cold to bear outside, it’s admittedly hard to get motivated each day especially when it comes to getting dressed. When all you want to do is wrap up in a blanket, it can be tempting to reach for the same cozy sweater over and over again. Don’t get us wrong, we love having our go-to items, but it can become hard to reinvent ways to style them after a few wears. The good news? The right accessories can breathe new life into your favorite winter pieces, so we’ve rounded up a few of our must-have accessories to add the perfect finishing touch to your ensemble.

 

winter accessories: rectangle scarf

Rectangle Scarf

We’re all for pieces that can be styled in more ways than one, so we love the versatility of an oversized blanket scarf. When you’re not wearing it around your neck, you can drape it over your shoulders to wear as a lightweight piece on a low-key night in or an unusually warm day. Looking to add some pattern to your all-neutral ensemble? There’s nothing more timeless than a festive plaid to round out your look. Basically, a cozy rectangle scarf is the grown-up way to bundle up, and with so many color combos to choose from, there’s an option that works for every style.

 

winter accessories: clutch

Minimal Baggage

Whether you’re staying home for the holidays or traveling, a neutral clutch or wristlet is the perfect piece to have on hand (literally). Small enough to stow on your carry on, you won’t have to worry about it taking up valuable space. It’s the perfect size to help keep you organized on-the-go with space to stash only the essentials and nothing more. Better yet, find an option with a detachable crossbody strap for a bag that works for whatever you have on your busy agenda.

 

winter accessories:

Modern Hoops

Simple modern hoops are a must-have accessory in any wardrobe. Contemporary lines and mixed metals are perfect for everyday wear and sleek enough for your next soirée. If you need a little something special to make your party look pop, pick a pair with a touch of sparkle to really make your ensemble shine.

 

winter accessories: beanie

Pom Pom Beanie

A chunky knit beanie is a necessity in any cold-weather wardrobe. You can rock it everywhere from running last-minute errands to hitting the slopes on vacation. Our favorite finishing touch? An oversized faux-fur pom-pom. It adds just the right amount of luxe texture and feels festive for the season.

 

winter accessories: bracelet

Slim and Slender Cuff

If you’re not a huge accessory person, a delicate bracelet is a great solution. Simple and sophisticated, it adds a polished finish to your look without going overboard. With the ability to style it alone or stacked with your other favorite bracelets, it’s a wear-with-everything piece you’ll never want to leave home without.

Getting dressed throughout the winter can sometimes feel like a daunting task. Stepping out into the cold and trying to put together an ensemble that feels both stylish and warm seems impossible. Thankfully, there are reliable style essentials that will keep you cozy and fashion-forward all winter long. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to help you and your wardrobe survive the chilly months ahead.

 

winter wardrobe style essentials: cozy knit

1. Cozy Knits

It may seem like the obvious choice, but we’re strong advocates for keeping one or two (or ten) cozy knits in your winter wardrobe. Our favorite updates to the classic cable knit are cropped lengths, oversized silhouettes, and vibrant pops of color.

2. High-Waisted Pants

For the bottom half, reach for a high rise pant. Whether it’s a legging, trendy pair of denim, or printed pant, finding a pair that sits at your natural waistline will ensure all-day comfort. They look especially chic when you pair them with a chunky sweater and style it with a front-tuck.

3. Fancy Flats

Easy to dress up or down, you can easily pair flats with any ensemble you have in mind. Need a pair that will cut it in the workplace? Try a pair with sparkle or embroidery and you’ve got instant fancy feet.

 

winter wardrobe style essentials: plaid

4. Plaid, Plaid, Plaid

There are few style essentials we keep in our closets all year round, and plaid is one of them. While plaid is no doubt a seasonless staple, we’re particularly fond of it this time of year. Festive color palettes and easy layering make it a no-brainer when you’re not sure what to wear.

5. Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are the answer when you want to round out your outfit with something that’s relaxed and on-trend. Wear them rolled for a fully laid-back look, or uncuff them for a more tailored take on the trend.

6. Slip-On Sneaks

A comfortable slip-on sneaker is a fail-proof finish to your ensemble that can take you anywhere from a low-key weekend indoors to an all-day outing.

 

winter wardrobe style essentials: sherpa-lined jacket

7. Sherpa-Lined Jean Jacket

Denim jackets are a go-to piece in the summertime, but as soon as the weather starts to cool down, there’s a need for something more substantial. Sherpa-lined jean jackets provide more warmth, feel super cozy, and will keep your outfit looking cool and casual.

8. Camo Pants

Camo print is the trend that won’t end (and trust us, we don’t want it to). Try it out on a cargo pant, stretchy skinny, or even a relaxed jogger if you want to give an athleisure spin to your ensemble.

9. Comfortable Boots

With it being one of the busiest times of the year, you’re probably running from the office to holiday shopping, and somehow squeezing in your normal errands. There’s no doubt you’ll need comfortable shoes to keep up, and booties with a low heel are the perfect solution. They look polished and professional without killing your feet.

It’s that time of year. Weekends are filling up quickly with ugly sweater parties, family get-togethers and gift exchanges with friends. Your busy social life may be the highlight of the season, but there’s a good chance your work calendar is filling up too. Between figuring out what to get your Secret Santa and balancing an already full workload around extra days off, figuring out what to wear to your upcoming office holiday party can cause a bit of stress. We know it can be tricky (especially with vaguely defined dress codes), so we’ve rounded up four festive looks complete with expert styling advice that’ll be sure stun your coworkers.

 

office holiday party : happy hour

Holiday Happy Hour

Must-Have Piece: The Velvet Jacket

While a bomber jacket is often associated with an athleisure style, the velvet texture and rich color make it a fun and festive piece. You’ll be lookin’ bomb and feeling cozy at casual celebrations over cocktails.

Styling Tips

Contrasting textures in your ensemble exudes confidence, so don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit. Start with your focal piece (lookin’ at you, bomber jacket), add in accents of faux suede and faux leather, and you’ve nailed a look that feels both effortless and edgy. If you want to ditch the pants, swap them out for a slip skirt. It’s this seasons trend that pairs with everything, and we’re all for sneaking it into our ensemble at any opportunity.

 

office holiday party : mid-day soiree

Mid-Day Soirée

Must-Have Piece: The LBD

If your office holiday party is during the work-day, it can be hard to figure out what to wear that works both for the conference room potluck and bouncing from meeting to meeting. When in doubt, reach for the always-versatile LBD. It still maintains an air of professionalism while being a knockout piece that’s sure to impress your colleagues.

Styling Tips

A simple Ponte is comfortable and provides the perfect blank slate for adding your personal touches. Select pieces that set your style apart and have fun with accessories you may not wear on a day-to-day basis. Try pairing it with a printed jacket (we’re particularly fond of animal print, ATM), edgy moto, or layer a cropped chunky knit over it for an even cozier ensemble.

 

office holiday party : the major blazer

After-Hours Hors d’Oeuvres:

Must-Have Piece: The Major Blazer

If your office has planned an elaborate holiday party, reach for sparkling metallics or satiny sheen (oh, fancy). A tweed blazer with modern updates like shimmering threads and frayed edges feels classic enough to wear around your coworkers but daring enough for the special occasion.

Styling Tips 

Take your party get-up to the next level with coated denim and a sleek camisole. Sticking to all black feels sophisticated while the edgy textiles make for a fun ensemble that you wouldn’t normally wear on any other workday. For a more relaxed look, layer your statement blazer over a tailored sweater, a pair of clean wash denim, and booties.

 

 

office holiday party

The Wild Card

Must-Have Piece: The Suede Skirt

If you have somewhat of an untraditional office setting, your office holiday party may be more laid-back than most. While a skirt might not feel like the most obvious choice for winter, a faux suede finish feels aligned with the season. Experiment with different silhouettes like a pencil, midi, or mini to find what best suits your shape and style.

Styling Tips

As the temperatures continue to drop, we’re looking more and more to Joey Tribbiani for layering inspiration (could we be wearing any more clothes?!). That means, we’ve already brainstormed a few ways to style this mini without shivering. Our personal favorite? Pair your skirt with tights and knee-high boots for a little extra warmth and throw on a cropped jacket for the finishing touch. If you opt for a mini, pair with a long cardigan or trench coat to visually balance out your look.

We love stocking up on sweaters, but our favorite of the season is the classic turtleneck. There’s no denying that they keep us warm and cozy throughout the cooler seasons, and the extra coverage is essential to surviving temperature drops. Figuring out how to style a turtleneck in fresh new ways can be challenging. With so many exciting trends emerging, it can be tempting to try them all out at once. But, try a few too many with one outfit and we could end up looking like this (hey, you do you, Dwayne). Just in case you’re not feelin’ the fanny pack, we’ve pulled a few of our favorite pieces to help you master styling this closet staple. Trust us, you’re turtle-y going to love them (sorry, couldn’t resist).

turtleneck outfits:

1. Luxe Textures

We’re all for a neutral ensemble, but the best way to take your outfit to the next level is by playing with a variety of textures. A cozy knit paired with coated denim screams sophisticated without feeling stuffy. Complete your look with a puffer jacket and you’ve perfectly mixed the highs and the lows for a street-savvy ensemble.

 

turtleneck outfits:

2. Tunic Length Turtleneck

For a piece that lends endless styling opportunities, invest in a tunic length turtleneck in a versatile color. Easy to pair with virtually any bottom, it will quickly become a Monday-to-Sunday kind of piece. We suggest finishing your look with a camel trench coat. It’s equally versatile, and when paired with the tunic length sweater, the long lines of each piece will visually create a ton of length for your figure.

 

turtleneck outfits: feminine

3. Frills That Fit the Bill

If you don’t love the feel of a turtleneck or are lucky enough to enjoy warmer temps all year ’round, try a mock neck top. With added detail along the neckline, it feels like a modern take on a classic piece. To toughen up this feminine ensemble, layer an edgy moto jacket over your sweater to complete your look.

Fall is in full swing and winter is looming right around the corner (cue hibernation mode). While the colder temperatures mean storing away some of our favorite pieces, it also means it’s officially sweater weather. And, let’s be honest, sweater weather is better weather. It’s the best time of year to hang out by the fire, curl up on the couch with a captivating book, and wrap yourself up in a soft, oversized pullover. To make sure your autumn wardrobe is all set for whatever plans you have in store, we’ve teamed up with our Stylists to round up the fall sweaters they can’t seem to live without. And we can’t blame them – they’re amazing.

fall sweaters - turtleneck

1. The oversized turtleneck tunic

The oversized turtleneck tunic combines the best of both worlds: comfort and style. Seriously, you can’t beat it. Not only does it keep you cozy even on the coldest of days, but it’s also a wardrobe staple that will last you well into the next season.

 

fall sweaters - chunky knit

2. Statement stripes on a cozy knit.

Stripes are simple, classic, and never go out of style. Try statement stripes on a cozy knit for a modern update that will make this fall sweater feel fresh and familiar all at the same time. Pair with high waisted denim and a printed accessory for some extra pizzazz. We’re all for incorporating a little bit of pattern play into our ensemble!

 

fall sweaters - colorful classic

3.The classic in a fall foliage hue.

With the days becoming shorter and darker, it can be easy to revert to wearing neutrals on a day-to-day basis. While blacks and greys serve as a great foundation, we’re loving happy hues to brighten up your fall wardrobe. Wear a classic sweater in a vibrant color and finish your look with more muted tones for visual balance.

As soon as the clock strikes midnight on November 1st, it seems the hustle and bustle of the holidays are in full swing. Shopping malls transform into winter wonderlands seemingly overnight (seriously, how is this possible – currently in full-on detective mode to figure it out), and commercials are packed with festive jingles. While we’ve all got that one friend who’s already blasting “All I Want For Christmas is You” – hey, maybe it’s you, no judgment – the crisp, cool air and colorful leaves remind us that it is, in fact, still fall.  So before your holiday prep kicks into full gear, consider planning a short weekend escape. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite self-care tips and outdoor activities to get you started and help you to relax and unplug.

 

outdoor activities - fall fitness

Swap High Intensity with Slower Activities

If you’re constantly on the go while you’re at home, try taking it down a notch during your weekend getaway. Scenic hiking, kayaking, and biking still get your heart rate going and are great ways to get your fall fitness on. Spending time in nature is not only good for the body, but it’s also great for the mind as well. It’s peaceful, reduces stress, and helps us clear our thoughts. Plus, you can swap your nature sound app for the real deal.

 

outdoor activities

Stop and Smell the Pine Trees

Be present. Take a bit of time each day to unplug and leave your phone at the cabin (or adorable a-frame). Replace it with journaling for a few minutes and jot down things that make you happy, or head outside to snap a few Polaroids of the fall foliage. No matter what you decide to do, we suggest bringing a mug filled to the brim with a cozy beverage. There’s something about sipping on a warm drink that calms the spirit and soothes the soul.

 

outdoor activities

Yoga with Furry Friends

Whether it’s goats, cats or dogs, yoga with fluffy little animals has some amazing benefits for both you and your furry friends. Many locations share the mat with adoptable animals (dangerous, we know), and it gives them exercise, attention, and mental stimulation. As for us humans, it helps with depression, mindfulness, and encourages us to seek a deeper connection. Once you’ve picked the location for your retreat, research to see if any spots nearby offer this unique activity.

 

outdoor activities

When the Sun Goes Down

Just because the sun has set doesn’t mean you have to call it a night (although we definitely wouldn’t blame you if you did). Grab an oversized throw and sit by the fire, roast a few s’mores, and share your favorite stories. If you’ve had your fair share of the outdoors for the day, head inside and pop on a face mask and an old flick, play a board game, or cozy up and read a book that’s been sitting on your shelf back home for too long. Just do what makes you happy!

inverted triangle body shape

In the words of the incomparable Beyoncé, “you’ve got the love on top.” … er, something like that.

Trying to identify your body type can be one tricky task. Tape measures, celebrity photos, and mathematical equations are all a bit much if you ask us. We’re here to help you define your body shape by keeping it simple. Instead of focusing on the archaic do’s and don’ts of dressing, we’ve focused on the value of flattering your body type with pieces that will become your body’s new best friends (if they aren’t acquaintances already). We like to think of these tips more as guidelines because let’s face it, life is too short to not break the rules once in a while.

 

The Inverted Triangle Body Shape

You have a large cup size, narrow hips, and a slim to average waist.

 

Inverted Triangle Outfit Ideas

inverted triangle body shape: work outfit

Work

A structured sheath with an open neckline and a defined waist is your ideal dress. If you don’t have a piece like this already, start with an LBD. Having this wardrobe essential in your closet will definitely come in handy – just think of all of the occasions it will work for!

A slightly draped open-front blazer is fitted enough to flatter while also adding length. Plus, it’s a versatile piece that is not only suitable for the office, but is equally amazing when paired with jeans and a tee.

inverted triangle body shape: weekend outfit

Weekend

A simple, fitted V-neck top elongates and balances your silhouette. We suggest looking for tops with a bit of stretch. They’ll flatter your full bust (without any annoying pulling) and provide all-day comfort.

Pants with a subtle print like camo draw focus downward, without being too in-your-face. If a full-on print is a bit out of your comfort zone, try subtle embellishments like embroidery or a tiny printed pattern.

 

Your Body’s BFFs

• Sleek tops with fitted sleeves and a bit of stretch will become your go-to piece for both work and weekend. They’ll comfortably fit over your bust while looking polished and put-together.

• When selecting your tops and dresses, opt for a simple, open neckline like v-neck or scoop. Wrap silhouettes are also extremely flattering and perfectly frame your face.

• If you’re looking to go the sleeveless route, tanks and dresses with wide straps will be your best bet. They’re supportive, and, better yet, provide worry-free wear that requires no yanking or adjusting.

• Fitted jackets like a belted trench or cropped moto are great options for your body type. Classic, tailored, and versatile, they’re a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style.

• A fit and flare dress will emphasize your amazing waistline while creating visual balance, while a tailored sheath dress is an equally flattering alternative when you’re looking for a more relaxed fit.

• Printed pants are a great way to balance your shoulders with your bottom half. Have fun playing with of-the-moment patterns like camo, leopard, and floral.

• Highlight your legs with either a skinny or straight bottom. If prints aren’t quite your thing, you can always opt for a pop of color as the eye-catching feature.

• A bootcut or wide-leg pants serve as a great foundation for an outfit, and they balance your inverted triangle body shape just as much as a print or a color.
