December is one of the most magical times of the year. Between holiday parties, Christmas and New Year’s Eve, it’s the one month of the year where I get to put my best foot forward. I love prepping early for the holiday season – that way I know my festive looks are set for the rest of the year. The one place I always shop at for luxe party outfits is Saks Fifth Avenue. They carry all the pieces I deem essential in my holiday outfit formulas. That might call for a blingy statement top for a night of cocktails with girlfriends, a showstopping gown for formal affairs, or an embellished skirt and a sweater for a house party. Saks also frequently runs cyber deals throughout the month of November and December, giving you plenty of opportunities save amid the holiday frenzy. Right now, you can take $50 off every $200 spent and save 15% off beauty products. Whether you’re on the hunt for outfits or gifts, consider your holiday shopping guide covered with my favorite pieces from Saks below.
I’ll jump at any opportunity to wear an exquisite gown. While that’s rare throughout the year, the holidays give me the perfect excuse. One of my favorite finds is this gold ALC dress. The v-neck halter neckline and tiered detailing will make you feel like a million bucks.
A beautiful statement top is a quintessential holiday piece. I love tops adorned with sequins or metallic prints because they offer a straightforward way to shine. Another great thing about them is their versatility. They easily spice up a pair of jeans or make for a dressier ensemble with tailored pants.
If it’s not a festive top I’m wearing, you’ll most likely catch me in a pair of floor-sweeping wide leg pants or a sequin skirt. Saks has no shortage of options at your finger tips. Whether you’re planning a night out with friends or attending a formal dinner, either piece is sure to elongate your shape in the most flattering way.
Foundational pieces like dresses and skirts might be the most crucial pieces of your holiday look, but don’t underestimate the power of shoes. I tend to stick with the classics, like pumps, but will be tossing things up this season with playful alternatives. These Sam Edelman platform sandals fit the bill. They’re originally $180 but are on sale for just over $100 – a complete steal!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about holiday dressing, it’s that festive attire is all about the glitz and the glamour. Nothing takes that up a notch like the right accessories. I love simple designs as seen on this clutch and these earrings. Even though they’re understated, they still enhance a high-shine look.
