Holiday Season Outfits 19/20

440 440 Velvet

While in London two weeks ago, one of the things I enjoyed doing was window shopping. Now, I get the perks of e-shopping, but in my book it’s still best to go outdoors and look at inspiring, jaw-dropping shop windows and feel that awe to the core of every cell in my body! Therefore, I seized the opportunity to marvel at all those beautiful holiday season outfits. And there were plenty. I saw many short dresses in sparkling sequins like last year, lots of velvet maxi dresses, and several outfits with bright, vibrant colors. On that account, I thought I should share with you some alternatives featured in the High Street shops, because the holidays are coming…

Now, there’s no question that the shop windows of those high end brands were beautiful. The outfits were gorgeous, meant to make you feel like a million dollar babe, but honestly some of the price tags gave me a dizzy spell. Thank goodness though, there are plenty of more affordable options in High Street shops that won’t break the bank, unless you’re great at saving up for that one-of-a-kind outfit.

Moreover, I’m enjoying the perks of a more trendless fashion era I discuss in my post about this year’s fashion trends. That is mainly because last year’s fashion is this year’s fashion too. All you have to do is tweak your outfits a little and voila; you’ll be able to re-invent your own wardrobe and not feel out-dated.

Anyway, fashion’s love affair with sequins continues on. Hence, most outfits found in the various High Street shops have sequins. Interestingly enough, I also saw more velvet outfits than the previous years. They came in different colors, but to be honest my favorite colors are always the jewel toned ones and black. On this note, let me add that although I love velvet, I don’t like crushed velvet. Generally speaking, I don’t think it is as elegant. Hence, the risk of a crushed velvet outfit looking “cheesy” is usually too big for me. But, that’s my very personal point of view on this.

So, without further ado, let the show begin…

No rules against wearing white during the holiday season, right?! Two women dressed in off white dresses. On the left a color blocked black top white bottom dress. On the right, a cami looking creamy white dress under an off white faux fur. Image via Miss Selfridge.

Miss Selfridge. Not too many sequins, yet glamorous because of the dresses’ long length, and sexy too because of the shears.

Pure Collection. A black sequin top like this is a keeper. It will go along with you for a long, long time. I have a similar one that I bought ages ago and always turn to when I’m not sure what to wear.

I hope these outfits sparked your imagination.

I also wish you a Happy Thanksgiving Day tomorrow!

  • Oh my goodness, this is literally what I’m doing tonight. Looking for outfits for the holiday season! Thank you for the inspo. So nice to see that velvet is also popular in fashion (as well as in interiors). Not sure I can pull it off though.. 😛
