Holidays are just around the corner and the atmosphere of the festive season can already be felt in the air! I thought I'd share with you 5 looks for this upcoming holiday season and I hope you'll find them inspirational.
Look # 1
Here I'm wearing the ankle length slacks in shades of blue and a hint of red and green (these pants are from a couple of years ago, but this model is very popular and quite affordable at H&M. They come in many different prints and colors!).
I'm also wearing my navy blue coat, fluffy sweater and bold color shoes with a bit of a heel.
Look # 02
Lovely Lace Dress
This dress is from Adasbridal and I got it as a part of our fashion collaboration. It's lovely and it comes in many different color options. I like to wear it for special occasions, such as wedding ceremonies, family gatherings etc.
I paired it with my faux fur Zara jacket and Emporio Armani black shoes.
My little Fendi bag, as you can see, goes with any outfit.
Look # 03
This skirt was hand made by my granny and it's very dear to my heart. I also love the fact that I feel very unique when I wear it because I know I won't see a similar piece!
It's also great quality and very warm, so appropriate for cold winter days! I updated the skirt pairing it with a Zara colorful overcoat and calf high suede booties with a chunky heel. Around the holidays it's always cold here in Italy, so I'm wearing my chunky knit sweater.
Accessories are from my jewelry collection, Pika jewelry (sold out), created in collaboration with a local Italian craftsman, Mario Scaglione, a couple of years ago. I have very fond memories of this collaboration!
Again, I'm wearing my little vintage Fendi, that goes well with everything! I found it in a thrift store where I was working, in London in 2005 and it was my best ever purchase to this date!
This outfit is the perfect example of how you should go through your Mum's/ granny's closets: you'll find the best items right there!
Look # 04
A Pop of Color
I'm wearing a lace dress again simply because I just love lace clothing items! They're very feminine, romantic and delicate. The great thing about this dress is that it is so versatile, you can actually even wear it for everyday.
I'm loving the color here, I think everyone should have a red coat for winter (and it's fab for holiday season, makes the whole feel of the outfit very festive!) Also, you can add a faux fur collar on top (as a scarf) to make it even more chic and exclusive!
I have a lot of H&M clothes, as I work there, and I'm always able to find super good deals.
Look # 05
When you want to sparkle but also be edgy and chic, go for sequin leggings and on top, pair it with something a bit more plain.
I wore these leggings to many special events and dinners. They're eye catching but if you pair them with the right pieces, they can also be very cool and chic!
Let me know which one is your favorite outfit?
I can do other holiday inspired looks/ ideas if you'd like me to! Let me know!
All these items I've had in my closet for years and years, so I can't provide any links, but this post is supposed to serve you as an inspiration to create a look from the similar pieces that you already have!
