Supposedly, it’s the most wonderful time of the year—so why are we suddenly afflicted with major wardrobe ennui? It’s especially bad timing because our social calendars are about to kick into high gear, and we’re gonna need outfits for all of those outings.
Thankfully, Kourt’s stylist Dani Michelle came to the rescue.
While holiday dressing may feel intimidating, Dani tells us there’s actually a wide range of options—just make sure it’s cozy or sparkly (or both!). One of her biggest tips: “Just remember that juxtaposing your shoes to the look is a fun way to dress up something that feels cozy and relaxed or pare down a dressier look.”
Think—a casual fit with fun heels or a party outfit with boots or flats.
Below, she shares 4 formulas for the perfect holiday outfit.
Holiday Outfit 1: Blazer dress + party shoe
For an office holiday party, Dani says to consider wearing something that’s “more flirtatious than the normal office day-to-day.” Her recommendation: a blazer dress with a really fun party shoe.
