It’s that time of year! December feels bright and crisp and with it brings fond memories of the snow, bright festive colors and the warmth of hot chocolate. Back when I lived in New Jersey, waking up to snow was a typical thing. In Texas, dry cold air is all I get…maybe with a chance of some flurries here and there. Getting snuggled up on the couch with some hot chocolate while a fun movie plays on tv is the best thing to do on a cold December night. It’s definitely my favorite thing to do.
Unfortunately, it can’t always be that way – we need to get out of the house and attend festive parties and mingle with people sometimes. This is where my trusty faux fur vest comes into play. It’s stylish, warm and it makes it look like you actually tried to be at that holiday party you wanted to skip. But, not everything can look festive just by simply throwing a faux fur vest on. Having a cut top under a vest can make the completed look – if it’s worn the right way.
I typically like to keep my look as casually cool as I can make it. Denim and over-the-knee boots are my go-to for boosting up casual looks during the winter season. Darker denim can make your look more refined and can be dressier, so stick with that if it’s your goal. If you’re looking to wear a super casual outfit, stick to lighter denim or even denim that has tears and rips in them. This can make you look and feel comfy, cool and warm. Isn’t that the best combination ever? I definitely think so.
This fun and festive multi-bell sleeved top that made the outfit for me. Sometimes it difficult pairing something cute under a vest – you don’t want to cover up intricate details on that top by layering it under a vest. So, go with something that has an all-over detailed look or something that is detailed enough on the sleeves alone. The bell sleeves make this top more fun and definitely flirty.
This top has become a favorite of mine - it is very versatile and can be paired with pretty much anything. Versatility in a clothing item is extremely important and I always consider anything that can be versatile a must have. If you can wear one item several different ways and you think it’s super cute, then why not get it?
