How to Style Holiday Fashion Trends

Hey everyone! I am very excited for today’s blog post because I have always loved styling different outfits and planning what to wear for any and all occasions! Of course, celebrations may look a little different for us this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t dress up and get festive (even if you aren’t going anywhere)! Today, I will be discussing some holiday fashion trends, and sharing tips on how to style them!

Velvet

This is admittedly not my favorite trend, however it is a popular choice for the holidays! Something about this material does feel festive, and you really can dress this up or down. There are so many ways to rock this trend. For example, if you wore a simple white chiffon tank top paired with black denim and an emerald velvet blazer, this would make the perfect holiday event outfit that is professional yet trendy! Another idea would be to wear a gray oversized sweater, a royal blue velvet skirt, and some black ankle boots! Whatever your style may be, you can’t really go wrong with velvet for the holidays!

Try the “Women’s Long Sleeve Velvet Ruched Bodycon Dress” from Target ($25) or the “Velvet Puff Sleeve Top” from LOFT ($44.99).

Sequins/glitter

This is a very fun trend for this time of year! Any time I shop around the holidays, I always find sequins everywhere I turn! I personally don’t wear sequins very often, and if I do it is typically for some kind of occasion. New Year’s Eve/Day is the perfect time to style this trend! If sequins are a bit too much for you, wearing something sparkly will look beautiful as well! For example, if you wanted to go all out this year, you can wear an all black sequined jumpsuit with some red heels to complete the look. This screams Christmas/New Years to me! A more toned down choice would be to wear a glitter tie waist wrap top and some slim black pants (or even denim). Although this trend can be intimidating at times, there are a variety of ways to wear it depending on your style and what you like!

Try the “Sequined Dress” from H&M ($34.99) or the “Midnight Sparkle Skater Dress” from Windsor ($18.97)

Sweater dress

If you prioritize comfort over anything else in your wardrobe, sweater dresses are a great option for you! You can style them to be more casual, or you can get really fancy too! A nice oversized, patterned sweater dress would look really cute with a simple pair of flats, or a fitted lace-up sweater dress with a pair of knee high boots would be another gorgeous option. I think sweater dresses can be perfect for girls with any type of style because they really can look feminine, sexy, or casual all depending on how you style it!

Try the “Women’s Long Sleeve Sweater Dress” from Target ($29.99) or the “Cable Knit Sweater Dress” from Forever 21 ($13.99)

Puffy sleeves

I am actually a big fan of the puffy sleeve look! I think it can give any look a vintage vibe, and it’s just a fun trend to wear! This is a trend that has been pretty popular lately, so it would make sense to wear it around the holidays! You can style this trend by wearing a pleated black maxi skirt, pointed toe booties, and a white puffy sleeved top. I have seen quite a few tops where the sleeves are sheer and the rest of the top is not. I think that this can be a very feminine and classy look, and so many people can pull it off!

Try the “Organza Puff Sleeve Top” from Express ($32) or the “Puff-Sleeve Wrap Top” from Forever 21 ($19.99)

Leather, satin, and fur

Who doesn’t love a nice leather jacket?! You really can’t go wrong with classic black and silver detailing. This would look amazing over a red dress, or you can use it to complete an all black look! Satin is always stunning around this time of year, so wearing a satin midi or maxi dress with a slit would be a bold and even sexy choice! A big fur coat can be an elegant and fun layering piece for winter! Although I do not own one, there are so many different styles and a wide price range for these as well!

Try the “Faux Leather Moto Jacket” from Forever 21 ($17.49), the “Ultimate Faux Leather Biker Jacket” from ASOS ($56), the “Satin Slip Midi Dress” from Nasty Gal ($28.80), and the “Women’s Faux Fur Jacket” from Target ($40)

Trench coat

A classic coat for fall and winter! I absolutely love wearing trench coats because they are so stylish and chic. I own a few different ones because there are so many options out there! For example, I own a white cropped trench that is perfect for layering on a cold winter day. I also have a long, light brown trench that is made of a thinner material and is a bit more classic. I love both for different reasons, but there are so many ways to wear these, and they come in a wide range of colors, fabrics, and patterns. These tend to be a bit pricey, but you can definitely find trench coats that are very affordable!

Try the “Women’s trench Coat – A New Day” from Target ($50)

Embellishments

I adore the look of pretty little embellishments on clothing, and what better time to style this trend than during the holidays? For me personally, I love the simple detailing of diamonds and pearls; I just feel like they add a feminine touch to any look! For example, a black long sleeved top with pearl detailing at the neckline would be a very nice touch! Or, diamond buttons on a flowy collared top is beautiful as well. Bows are another gorgeous touch, especially around Christmas, so a pussybow blouse would be a great option too!  If you aren’t a fan of these embellishments, you can incorporate some sparkle in your jewelry! This is the perfect way to complete any outfit. If you’re going for more of a casual look with your clothing, you can dress it up and have a bit of fun with accessories!

Try the “Women’s Holiday Loop and Pearl Cardigan Sweater” from Target ($19.59) or the “Jewel Embellished Top” from Macy’s ($20.99)

Nordic print and plaid

Around the holidays, you have probably seen a ton of sweaters or leggings with a very similar print on them. One of the most common holiday prints is Nordic (or that typical Christmas sweater print) and plaid. This trend can really be worn by anyone, and it instantly makes you feel very festive! A nice Nordic print or plaid sweater and jeans is a great look for laid-back events or gatherings. Another option is to wear a cozy sweater with some Christmas printed leggings! This is a very fun and casual look, and it can even be worn as pajamas!

Try the Reindeer Christmas Sweater from Walmart ($14.99) or the “Classic Plaid Flannel Shirt for Women” from Old Navy ($19.97)

And lastly, I wanted to include the top color trends for winter 2020! If you can incorporate any of these colors into your outfits this season, you will definitely be on trend!

Amber, sandstone, classic blue, brick, blue-green, magenta, olive, sleet, yellow-green, dusky pink, and samba.

You can also combine some of these trends to complete a look! If you wanted to wear a amber satin top with a bow at the neckline, that would be beautiful, or you can style a black leather skirt with a plaid sweater. There are so many options when it comes to holiday fashion trends!
