Merry Christmas! Need to catch up on the 12 Days of Holiday Parties outfit series? Past posts can be found here. New outfits will be posted daily until New Year's Eve to inspire all of your seasonal party looks!
As I mentioned last December, while I was working in retail I noticed a trend that around Thanksgiving many women would start coming into the store looking for a red, wool skirt suit to wear as a "Christmas suit." However, I think it is a bit boring to wear the same outfit every year on the same holiday and very impractical to buy a new version of it nearly every year. So I paired trousers in a deep plum with a cardigan in a matching deep plum color and added some great holiday sparkle with a glitzy top.
Where to wear it:
From church to dinner, this works for all your official Christmas activities!
Why it works:
The holiday season is all about deep, rich colors and fun sparkle so this outfit combines them. By finding separates that match instead of a traditional suit, you also ensure that you will be the only one rocking your look!
