I know that Halloween has quite literally just ended, but now that it is November, I am in full holiday-season mode. I’m planning my travels, booking après-ski reservations, and, of course, planning all of my upcoming winter looks. The most exciting are my holiday-party looks. I’m a sucker for all of the cliché fabrics and motifs that pop up around this time of year. The velvet, sequins, bows, and feathers—I can’t get enough of it. It’s clothing that puts you in a good mood and makes you want to celebrate, and while my holiday-party calendar is still looking a little thin (yes, that is me dropping a hint that you should throw a holiday party and invite yours truly), I’m not letting that stop me from getting a few good holiday-party outfits on deck. When I do receive a party invite, I’ll be ready.
I went to some retailers that I know are stocking up on tons of chic items to guarantee you’re the best dressed at your upcoming holiday festivities. Reformation is always at the top of my list for any party look, and the brand is not playing around when it comes to holiday-season pieces. H&M’s holiday accessories are so good I almost wanted to gatekeep them.
