31 Outfit Ideas for All 31 Days in December
Ah, December. Time to deck the halls with boughs of holly and your hands with cashmere gloves. Christmas may come but one day a year, but that doesn't mean you can't wear jolly colors, glittering sequins and giant cozy coats all month long. Here are 31 gorgeous outfit ideas to inspire you through the end of 2017.
Harness the Power of Cool Accessories
A gray sweater and black pants will always look work appropriate. Adding on a silk scarf and pair of fringed Mary Janes, however, takes things to the next level. You’re a boss, lady.
Tame Down a Cocktail Dress for Day
Going to The Nutcracker? Invited to a holiday tea party? Pair a slip dress (that you’re going to work by itself on NYE) with a cozy cardigan and sleek accessories. Now you’re fit to be tea-ed.
Go All Out With Denim
This is how city girls do cowboy chic: Update the look with menswear-inspired brogues, a minimalist duster and a tempered hat. The double denim can stay.
Stick to One Color Group
Pick either warm tones (yellows, oranges, reds) or cool ones (blues, purples, greens) and mix and match shades until you find your perfect combination. We think: The more vibrant, the better.
Mix Unexpected Fabrics
Who knew your dad’s old half-zip fleece could look so fashion-forward? Use its inherently snuggly nature to balance out a pair of high-shine leather pants.
Wear Oversize Everything
Boxy overcoat + extra large sweater + boyfriend jeans + a sheer tunic to your ankles = maximum levels of comfort.
Think Outside the Layering Box
You wore your long-sleeve lace blouse over silky camis all summer long, but now it’s time to rock that baby under your chunkiest sweater for a fresh contrast of styles.
Embrace Winter Whites
We don’t dare you to wear just white pants after Labor Day; we dare you to wear all white everything. Haven’t you always wanted to live inside a Nancy Meyers movie?
Wear Sweats All Day Long
It’s time to upgrade from fraying sweatpants and an old college hoodie to cashmere joggers and a fleece-lined crewneck. When you throw on shorty boots and a peacoat, suddenly your favorite sweat suit is now brunch appropriate.
