December is all about parties, parties and then s’more parties (pun intended). With so many things happening, finding that perfect outfit for a work party or a family get together can truly be a hassle! This week we are putting together some fun and festive looks for you while keeping comfort in mind! Read on to see our hottest picks of the season!
LOOK 1: LEATHER WEATHER
Leather pants should be a staple in every girl’s closet. They are extremely versatile and can be worn with many different tops to create a chic look in minutes. This is a very casual look with a chic touch. It is simple yet stylish and the touch of red adds the right amount of oomph.

LOOK 2: TOUCH OF SPARKLE
It is hard to stay away from glitter and sequins during the holidays but the best thing to make your look stand out from the usual is adding just a hint of sparkle in your outfit. Rather than wearing an all sequin dress that we have seen for nearly a decade, opt out for something like a skirt or a pair of pants with a simple detailed blouse with a colourful fitted blazer.

LOOK 3: MIXING SEASONAL PRINTS
Mixing and matching different patterns and prints can be a bit challenging but if done right, it can totally elevate your outfit to a new level of chic and style. One thing to keep in mind is to choose two patterns that look good on your body type and from there you can start mixing! This outfit is perfect for moms on the go at family parties or just a casual secret Santa party.
