This is the year of comfy. Never before have I seen so many oversized sweaters, adorable jackets and chunky knit scarves all around me. People in the DC area have experienced a cold like no other in years past and they’re not letting it happen again.
As the time for holiday parties has come around, I’ve been looking for versatile pieces that are cute and cozy to celebrate in. Something that’s warm but also impossibly chic at the same time, you know? Like I want to have my cake and eat it too (#sorrynotsorry!) Luckily, Piperlime is on the same page. This Soft Joie cardigan is literally the piece of my dreams. It’s soft but also totally adorable. I've worn this about, oh, 12,399, 234 times since it arrived in the mail.
I also love wearing velvet for the holidays. I think this black Daniel Rainn tank top would have also been adorable with a pair of oxblood or dark green velvet pants…but since I don’t have either, I threw it over a grey silk shift dress to give the whole look some texture. And since I’ve been into keeping my toes warm, I was only semi-reluctant slipping out of my ugg slippers into these boots when I left the house.
What are your favorite holiday styles? Are you going for cozy looks like me?! Stay tuned for more pretty holiday looks this week!
