OOTD: Gold Glamour

Shop this look: Le Château sweater (oos; similar here) | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here) | Zara bag | Melanie Lyne crystal and screw bracelet (oos; similar here) | Sam Edelman heels | Guess bracelet

Last week I shared an OOTD with the same sparkly gold sweater as a festive look to celebrate NYE! Another way to style it is with leather pants, which meld glam and edge to get a fancy look that is full of character! This outfit focuses on just black and gold, with no other variations in tone. Paired with bold accessories, such as black chandelier earrings, a black leather Versace-inspired bag, and black leather heels, this look is will make you want to get your party on!

Happy New Year’s Eve loves!

OOTD: Holiday Gold

Shop this look: Le Château sweater (oos; similar here) | H&M skirt (oos; similar here) | Melanie Lyne hinge bangle bracelet (oos; similar here) | Sam Edelman leopard heels

Such a festive outfit for New Years celebrations, especially with the sparkly gold sweater! I paired this top with a plain black pencil skirt, which can be found in most wardrobes. This makes it very convenient for an office to night out look; all you have to do is switch out your top! Moreover, animal print has been such a hit this year, so you will definitely look like the fashionista that you are with the leopard print heels. Although this outfit has a lot of character and is a little bit flashier than normal, it is elegant and cohesive. By staying within the same colour palette throughout (black and gold tones), the entire outfit flows very nicely.

Inspiration Tuesday: Blue Christmas

This look is perfect for a Christmas celebration with friends and family! It is really festive, with a touch of blue velvet and diamonds that sparkle like winter frosting. “Ladies of New York, frost yourselves!” – who knows where this line comes from? (It is a really funny movie. If you know it, let me know in the comments section below). If you live somewhere with a bit of a chill, throw a black fur coat over your shoulders for added warmth and style.

OOTD: Shimmery Blue for Christmas

Shop this look: Peter Nygard Collection blouse (oos; similar here) | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here + on sale!) | Guess bracelet | Sam Edelman heels | Costco pearl necklace

This look is very elegant and glamorous for Christmas, without being in-your-face or tacky. I love the combination of the feminine blouse with the edgier leather pants; it creates a good balance between the two. Not overly sweet but not completely rocker either. Styled with a nice pair of black high heels and a pearl necklace, this outfit is perfect for Christmas parties with the family, midnight mass (worn with a black coat), or even work parties.

OOTD: Edgy Red

Shop this look: Hilary Radley blouse (oos; similar here + 50% off!) | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here) | H&M booties (oos; similar here) | Danier bag (oos; similar here) | Melanie Lyne bracelet (oos; similar here)

I am loving the combination of red and leather details in this outfit! Since we are nearing Christmas, it gives off a festive vibe, and can be worn for the office with black dress pants or tucked into a pencil skirt. Alternatively, it can be paired with a black party skirt for other holiday occasions. An easy trick for making your style more festive is to wear a bold coloured blouse (such as royal blue or red) combined with dressy pants or a dressy skirt, black heels, and some bling (ex: on a clutch or jewelry).

Instead of wearing traditional black pants, I opted for a pair with gold zippers and a leather waistband. This really makes them stand out from your typical black dress pants, and adds a moto-chic, edgy vibe to your overall outfit. These could also be worn with other colour blouses or knitwear during the Fall, or a plain white tee tucked in for the Spring.
