holiday outfit ideas + nail polish pairings

This year, I've been really into holiday dressing more so than ever before. I don't know if it's just because I'm in a really festive mood these days or what! I've been looking to some of my favorite bloggers for inspiration and have found it in spades from girls like Kate, Caroline, Rebecca, and as always, Julia

This particular outfit is one that I've been loving for the transition between fall and winter. The adorable bell-sleeve sweater and the quilted vest are from Francesca's, the jeans are my favorites from Madewell, and a similar pair of boots can be found here.

My holiday outfit ideas are quite varied when it comes to style. You'll find a little preppy as well a little cozy, and a bit of edginess too. I've also included five nail polish colors from Essie that'll pair well with any of your holiday looks.

I love an outfit like this that mixes a lot of different textures. Also, the burgundy on bottom paired with cream on top gives this outfit a subtle, holiday vibe. 

Cozy sweater plus velvet trousers and gold, embellished details. This is a great look for girls with a more minimalist, modern style of dressing that wants to inject just a little bit of festivity.

For a preppy look, tuck a flannel shirt into a black mini skirt and style with textured, nude pumps and pearls. 

Who says holiday dressing has to mean dark reds and golds? A pale pink coat over a white sweater adds a little femininity when paired with basic skinny jeans and a tall boot. 

When you need a cozy outfit for days and nights at home, try a fluffy pullover with leggings, cute holiday socks, and the coziest furry slippers you can find.

All of these looks can be paired with a variety of holiday-inspired colors from Essie. Burgundy adds a bit of elegance while metallic pinks and golds and glitter will add a pop of excitement and dark green serves as a unique, festive alternative to a neutral color. 

Let me know what you plan on wearing for the holidays!
