Holiday Fashions for the Fam

Christmas may be five days away and last-minute shopping has reached a festive, fevered pitch! But dressing your family up or down for the holiday—for a sweet moment around the tree or a fancy soirée—can be a snap and even easier than hunting for the perfect presents in my book. Find inspiration in these looks I put together for a recent episode of the Megyn Kelly Show, and you’ll be all set for the holiday of ho, ho, ho and certainly a sparkling New Year’s Eve too.

UNDER THE TREE

Channeling a little Danish hygge (hoo-guh) or Scottish còsagach (“KO-sa-goh”) under the tree? We sure are with cozy comfort under the branches that are still worthy of a family photo op. Think buffalo checks in different hues, soft stretchy denim, an amazingly soft sweater dress and boots that feel akin to slippers! Any element of this attire can be accessorized if you actually feel like leaving the homestead to go out for your cocoa--but chances are you’ll make your own mugs and curl up to watch a holiday flick fireside!

OUTDOORSY SPORTY CHIC

Babes, it’s cold outside, but these ladies still need to look sweet! Here après ski meets ice skating, when you pine to head outdoors with a sprinkle of style and warmth. So build up the layers from the base up with velvet leggings, a marbled top, a faux fur vest and pink puffer and pom-pom headband—for catching snowflakes of course! For mama, the key piece is this sporty chevron sweater that looks like she just came off the slopes, and stretch vegan leggings that are oh-so-comfortable. Then a dash of red with the light puffer jacket and yummy boots and I’d say this mother-daughter duo is ready for a turn around the rink!

FESTIVE FA LA LA LA LA

Holiday parties are in high swing, and it’s not too late to get your glitz and glam on. So bring on the sequins, the tulle, the velvety fun! The dapper blazers for daddy and twinkly boleros for little ones! Accessorize with sparkly hair bows and beautiful bags, metallic shoes and more. Always have a style surprise...like gold star-printed tights or a big gold bow in the back of your dress.
