Sparkle and Shine, Holiday Outfits That You’ll Love

From NYC to LA, a little sparkle and shine this holiday season!

Some sparkle is almost mandatory for this time of the year.  I love a dash of shine, but am not an over-the-top sparkle and shine type of girl.  A little goes a long way, so I tend to stick with a statement piece and pair other items around it.  These two outfits have subtle shine, and the best part, all of the items are under $100!

For my NYC outfit, the star of the show is this velvet embellished dress (beautiful and under $40!).  It’s lush with the perfect amount of shine!  And it’s easy to style with nude pumps or black booties.  A close second to the star are these slouchy boots (amazing and under $45!).  It’s honestly one of my favorite purchases of the year.  Beyond comfortable (I’ve walked hours in them!), super versatile, and so chic!  Suede slouchy boots have been a runway favorite for many seasons, and these boots are right up that alley with the same shape and attitude.

For my LA outfit, a little sparkle on the bottom and loads of texture on top.  This metallic skirt (under $30!) is so much fun.  It’s sleek with an all-black outfit and also beautiful with a white turtleneck and ivory coat.  And now this textured sweater (under $40)!  Incredibly fluffy and soft, this sweater is definitely a winter favorite!  It pairs so well with a skirt for a dressy look and also with jeans for a casual weekend vibe.

I hope you enjoy the looks and happy holidays!  Wishing you loads of laughter and holiday sparkle this season!  As always, thank you so much for reading and special thanks to Express for partnering on this post!
