Colorful Berets you need to complete your Holiday Outfit



Berets have been around for a long time and have added interest, textures and color to the outfits of stylish women for years. They might have originated from the wardrobes of Parisian women before spreading to other parts of the globe and now become a huge trend this fall. Berets are so stylish now more than ever before as they come in different fabrics and designs as opposed to the traditional plain wool or cashmere beret.







A colorful beret like the bright red pictured above found on the Shein Website can add a pop of color to any outfit. It can be paired with a monochrome outfit like an all black or all neutral outfit and can also be paired with florals and other patterns. The traditional wool beret also comes accessorized with pearls and sequins which add textures and interest to a regular or basic outfit. Then we have leather berets, plaid berets, sequins and even animal prints berets. 'want to add this stylish accessory to your wardrobe this fall and winter? Check out the selections below.

The number one Accessory you need for the Holiday: Multi color sequin vintage Clutch





How much clutches can a lady have? Plenty! if you ask me 😀We need cute little clutches to go with our dressy outfits especially at this time of the year. This sequin vintage clutch is the latest addition to my closet nd it is a thrift find from Arcs Value Village. If you are not familiar with the organization, it is a Thrift store and donation center that has its origin from the state of Minnesota. There are four stores located in my city and they are set up to generate funds to help children and adults with developmental disabilities. The stores are clean, spacious and well organized with personal stylists at hand to help you if you are new to thrifting. Most people that work at these stores are volunteers and I must say the stores are the best consignment and thrift stores in my city.

Holiday Party Outfit Inspiration: ONE





It is time to start putting pieces together for the holidays and one way to do this effortlessly, is to put classy pieces and seasonal colors together. For this look, I used a pleated skirt as my foundation for this holiday look and you must know by now that the pleated skirt is a classic style that can be worn for any occasion and event depending on how it is styled. I paired the pleated skirt with a soft color lilac sweater and accessorized with burgundy color velvet clutch and suede bow pumps. Burgundy or wine is a color that works well for fall and winter and velvet is a rich fabric that works well for party or festive style. The green lucite earrings add a beautiful pop of color to the whole look. What colors are you putting together in your holiday outfit?

The Sweater Dress: A cold weather Closet Essential

  




If there is a style of dress we have to own in our closet in the cold weather month, it has to be the sweater dress. It is a very comfortable style of dress to wear when the temperatures drop and the styling options are endless. You can pair your sweater dress with a pair of sneakers or flats when the weather is not that cold and you can style with tights and boots when the temperature gets really, really cold. A sweater dress can also be layered with denim jackets, bomber jackets and long coats. The dress I am wearing here is an old piece from my closet and it is in my favorite color purple. I styled it with a pair of black tights and boots and completed the look with tassel earrings and a printed head wrap which is actually in animal prints. Since this is the season for wearing sweater dresses, there are so many options available on sale at different stores and I have linked a few in my shopping links below. However, I was not able to find an affordable sweater dress in a purple or lilac color to add to the list. What are your thoughts on sweater dresses?
