Haute Holidaze

It’s December and Christmas is only a week away.  Although we love our  velvets, jacquards and sequins – sometimes we just wanna be warm to beat the December chill.  Today we are drawing inspiration from our favorite cozy and effortless ensembles via Instagram.  After-all December is a month that feels (and looks) like one long, extended party.  These looks are suitable for each and friendly fêtes, winter walks and cookie swaps.

Cap It Off With A Cape

Blanket-like things aren’t just for your couch — they also come in stylish-cape form, like Eleonora Carisi’s.  This burgundy number looks just as good paired with miniskirts and knee-high boots as it does with your PJs.

The jeans-and-sweater outfit — our winter go-to — can sometimes feel a little schlepp-y. Layering a button-up underneath your knit will add instant polish. For work, swap the trainers for loafers and you’re golden.

Cozy & Polished

We’d have a pep in our step, too, if we were donning Valentina Siragusa’s outfit. Between her fluted skirt, metallic-gold Tory Burch crossbody, and Stella McCartney platform oxfords, there’s a lot to love.

Fashion has been a little off-kilter lately, filled with weirdo clothes for weirder people which is an absolute joy.

Tis the time to ditch traditional hemlines and put off balance twists on wardrobe staples.

The trend is romantic and feminine, but totally weird and awkward.

Is your unfinished ensemble an oversight?  Nah, its a style choice.

Asymmetries find their balance and personalize a look with a light heart and naïve touch.

Quite frankly, we think these hems are an absolute delight to wear and see.  What hemline will you be adding a mullet or mermaid to this season?  Let us know in the comments below!
