The time between September and December goes by faster every year, and I swear I am somehow more disorganized as the years pass..lol. Needless to say, I will be wrapping gifts from now until Monday. Now that holiday parties are in full swing, and we also look forward to New Years, I wanted to share three different styles with you in case you are looking for some last-minute inspiration ;-). I have teamed up with The Latest Scoop to show you what’s trending this season, and how you can play with patterns, textures, and even a little bit of colour. They have so many great options for party style in store, that won’t break the bank! Look #1 – The Jumpsuit I love jumpsuits, especially for going out. They are comfortable, and a great alternative to a dress. The wide-leg pant trend is huge this season, and adds a dramatic effect to your look (in a good way ;-)). This emerald green jumpsuit has ample amounts of stretch too, which is a bonus during a time where we tend to overindulge! Paired with another popular trend of the season, a black faux-fur coat. Stay cozy with a textured jacket that not only completes your outfit, but will also keep you warm in the snow! Look #2 – Blouse + Pants Pairing a dressy blouse with tailored pants is another great alternative to a dress. Try a tonal look this season, in an unexpected colour. Blush isn’t just for warm weather months; you can easily transition it into fall/winter and create a colourful, yet subdued style. The silk-like material of this blouse adds some shimmer, and pairs nicely with higher-waisted pants (another trend that isn’t going anywhere!). I opt to tuck in blouses to not only show off the waist of your pants, but to also create more of a tailored look. Otherwise your frame can get lost behind the material! These pleated pants fit SO well, and come in black as well. They have been a best seller this season at The Latest Scoop! Play around with pinks, nudes and rosegolds when it comes to accessories and makeup to complete your look! Look #3 – Party Dress Who doesn’t love a good LBD for the holidays?? And when you can find one with unique details and a fun silhouette, all the better. This self-portrait inspired dress has beautiful floral appliques and cut out details that make it so fun. Pair it with booties, or a killer pair of heels for a stand out look! The grid pattern detail on the bottom adds some extra length, which I love. Ever since becoming a mom I have been more conscious of the length of dresses!! This style is still fun and flirty, yet easy-to-wear without feeling too exposed! The A-frame shape also REALLY makes me want to dance 😉 A trend that undoubtedly returns each year – leopard print. I immediately gravitated towards this piece as it reminded me of my Nana. Who even in her final days wore leopard print! (she was very stylish!). This coat is a way to add both texture AND pattern. I love the combination with the dress! Try a cocoon or oversized version (like the one featured above). Very fashion-forward and on trend for the season! Looking for party dresses, affordable everyday style, gifts and home decor??
