Holiday Style Glam Night

“Going to a dressy event like a holiday show doesn’t mean you have to look serious. Keep things festive and fun by pairing a sparkly clutch and heels with a feather skirt. Add a swipe of lipstick and you’re off.” – Caroline M., Stylist

Office Holiday Party

Black may not be the expected color choice for a holiday outfit, but it’s always my go-to. Add red accessories and metallic accents to up the festive factor. The finishing touch? A faux-fur vest that brings the glamour while keeping you cozy in the cold December weather. ” – Caroline M., Stylist

This time of year, finding an ensemble that’s on-trend and that Grandma approves of isn’t always easy. So whether you’re headed to dinner with the in-laws or to your parents’ gift swap, Rue La La stylist Caroline M. breaks down the ideal getup for any family fete. Permission to copy every last element? Granted.

Family-Friendly Holiday Style

“The holidays are a time to glam it up – bangles and a shiny sequined skirt do just that. But for a family affair, pare down the glitz with a chambray shirt and beanie to add a touch of comfort that doesn’t translate as sloppy.” – Caroline M., Stylist
