Merry Style Trends to Celebrate the Holidays In Style


The holidays come and go and so do fashion trends, but this season there is a reason to have fun with fashion. There are many festivities to attend throughout this busy season, so plan ahead and be sure to dress your best.

“It’s all about the ’60s Mad Men look; being sexy without being overt,” said Summer Schriner, owner of Grace Boutique in Old Town, Lansing.

This season is full of embellishment and jewel tones, not to mention stunning silk, fine knits, chiffon and jersey fabrics. Glamorous accessories are widely available during the holidays, but keep it simple.

Whether you are attending a laid back office party or a black tie ball, these stylish looks will put you in the holiday spirit.

Flawless Sparkle

A cream chiffon and knit blouse with diamond teardrop detailing is delicately paired with a slate grey satin skirt, cream chiffon wrap, teardrop diamond earrings and stunning vintage pearl clutch. This monochromatic look is subtle and professional, yet offers just the right amount of glam.

Blouse, $218; skirt, $145; earrings, $42; clutch, $58; scarf, $68; bangles, two for $28.

Red Wine Cocktail Dress

Ideal for an evening event, this crimson taffeta dress will show off your curves, while the color radiates sophistication. Add a feather headband, sequined black t-strap heels and a velvet satin bow clutch for an elegant flair. If the headband isn’t your style, simply replace it with a fabulous vintage diamond bracelet. Keep it simple and classic.

Dress, $268; velvet clutch, $48; heels, $90; bracelet, $128; headband, $28.
