December is one of the busiest times of the year with various work functions, Christmas and New Year’s parties to attend. Not to mention all that shopping and beach-going to fit in.
Your wardrobe is going to need to work double duty to keep you on top of all the looks you’ll have to pull together. Need some inspiration? Ta-da! J.Crew to the rescue!
J.Crew has long been a favourite of well our well-dressed sisters across the pond, including Michelle Obama, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Reese Witherspoon. Starting in 1983, J.Crew established itself as a style guide for women all over the US. Their dedication to quality, timeless design and world-class customer service are now available to Aussies for the first time via their online store. Their huge range of beautiful and pracitcal pieces means they are a one-stop-shop when your wardrobe needs a style injection.
Check out our top 5 holiday season looks from J.Crew, and happy partying!
There are hours of pounding the pavement and browsing the mall to get through before the holiday season is done, so make sure you are dressed comfortably in flats, jeans and a light sweater to tie around your waist should it get chilly during late night shopping. A tote that’s big in both size and style completes this look.
Work Christmas Party
The work Christmas party calls for something festive but not too OTT. This neon skirt and simple long-sleeved tee are given a lift with a statement necklace and colourful shoe, but can later be incorporated back into your work and weekend wardrobe once the party is over.
Keep it pretty in this festive red lace dress. Match with teal pumps and a little sparkle and you’ve got yourself a cool Yule outfit.
New Year’s Eve
Welcome the new year in this party-perfect outfit. The dazzling sequined skirt and statement necklace combined with the relaxed tee gives you a casual-glam look that lets everyone know you’re not trying too hard. Ankle-tie pumps give you a little height on the dancefloor while the tote provides plenty of room for your water, phone and beauty supplies (and maybe some foldable flats). It’s gonna be a long night!
Once the festivities are over, it’s time to take it easy with walks on the beach and relaxing chats in cafes with friends as we enjoy the rest of our summer holidays. Keep it soft and fresh with this pretty peasant top, shorts and flats in a Greek Islands-inspired blue and white palette.
