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
