Even if it was a race to the finish to get out the door, these holiday outfits will definitely make you show up looking glowy and glam
Every year we swear we’re going to stress less this season, plan holiday shopping early, time it all just right, and float into holiday parties and get-togethers fully polished. And every year that doesn’t come close to happening. If you’re anything like us, you totally understand this scenario, so we decided to round up some holiday outfits to help you take care of the age-old question: “What am I going to wear?” so you can focus on other merry-making.
These holiday outfits are stunning, but they’re also practical, flattering, and wonderfully easy to throw on at the last minute. We know what it’s like to run around the house in sweat pants and an old college shirt, Velcro rollers barely hanging on, mascara on only one eye, helping everyone but yourself get ready to get out the door. With our picks, you won’t look like that’s how you spent the 45 minutes leading up to leaving. We also made sure to include pieces that are great for every body and everyone’s personal style. Check them all out below and check one more thing off your holiday list.
