Comfortable and Chic Holiday Looks





I am looking forward to the holidays and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to a break from school and work. I know everybody else is probably feeling the same way.
But with the holidays coming up so soon and it means it is time to find some outfits for all of those events. This is one of my go-to looks. Not only is the dress comfortable but it is pretty too. I also love this color block cardigan which is not only practical for colder weather but it is also chic. And of course, the shoes are comfy since they are Dr. Scholls. They also look stylish which is great for such festive occasions.

Another black sweater look but this time it has its own little bling. Since the sweater is not to blinged out your can pair it with a statement skirt like this velvet one.

I cannot believe it is actually feeling like fall and there have been a few winter-like days. Like Friday and Saturday, the temperatures were below or near freezing.  I was not prepared for the colder weather one day. I could not believe how cold it was or the fact that my denim jacket was quote helping me stay warm. So I decided it was a time I got some cold weather items. These ate just a few essentials I have found online. Ps. Most of these items are actually on sale.



1. Sweaters are great for colder days especially when you can layer with your favorite shirt, vest, or jacket. 
2. This beanie is not only cute but would keep my head warm.
3.Who can say no to this stylish and cozy coat?
4.If your nails are breaking off this therapy wrap will be excellent and make those nails and hands feel softer. 
5. One thing I hate about cold weather is having cold hands but these gloves will definitely help. 
6. You can't have enough ankle boots. A good pair of ankle boots especially sturdy ones is great.

7. Not only are cold hands bad but so are dry lips. Burt Bees is a staple to have in cold weather to prevent chap lips. 

8. For those who really get cold thigh high boots would be great. 
9. Scarves are perfect for layering and this one is so lovely.
10. To prevent dry skin a body scrub would be excellent.

When I got this dress I was reluctant to buy it because of the color but I am glad I did purchase this dress. It is a classic staple that I can wear to a fancy event or even too work. Plus there are so many ways to wear and I can wear it all year. This time of dress is a good investment for anybody. But I have a few tips to help you find the best for you, plus a little inspiration of looks you can create.

Length






Choose one a length that you feel comfortable with. I like my sheath dress to be below my knee but does not mean you have to wear it that way. Choose what looks right for you!




Fit








Choose a dress that is not too tight and fits around your arm area. If it does not fit around your armpit it will look sloppy and be uncomfortable.Make sure the neckline lies flat and does not have a gap.



Choose wisely based on your body





Choose a dress that fits you based on your height or body type. Here are a few celeb examples!




Curvy or Plus size 




If you are curvy up top choose a dress with some darting or ruching. Make sure the darts line up. Avoid lightweight items.

Or a dress that creates a silhouette like the dress.
