Holiday wear-Stylish Monday

Have you already got any idea about what to wear for the holidays? If not, perhaps we can inspire you with some festive looks! But hey, who are we? Let me tell you.

Stylish Monday is created out of a Facebook group of Life and Style bloggers. Every month we interpret a theme in our own way, fashionable wise of course. It’s a fun way to be creative with clothing and accessories. And to see how other women interpret a theme chosen by someone else. It is a fabulous fashionable way to create something beautiful with other bloggers. 

My holiday wear….I think….perhaps not…..I don’t know yet.

my tulle skirt

Here in the Netherlands we have two Christmas days, and Christmas Eve of course. So that’s three outfits I need. I always want to wear tulle, that’s for sure. So I will be wearing this gorgeous polka dot skirt.

But I also have this blue one. I think I want to wear that one with this blue glitter sweater! And my blue suède boots! But I will definitely wear these ankle boots, they have golden studded bows at the back! Now, aint that the perfect holiday wea

Festive outfits from all over the globe.

Be it a festive holiday party or a girls’ night out, your evening will start off more relaxed if you have a few outfits planned out ahead of time.  Looking for some inspiration?

Today, I’ve rounded up  some of my favorite holiday outfits (current and past) to hopefully inspire you to shop your closet, and sparkle and shine a little brighter this holiday season.

Julie of Fashion Trends and Friends

This is your time to sparkle and shine!  I don’t need much reason to add on the bling, glitz and glam!  This is right up my extra loving alley!  Is there such a thing as too much or too many rhinestones, glitter and sequins?!  I think NOT!  Time to get your HOLIDAY SPARKLE on friends!

Emma of The Style Splash

Festive outfits mean lots of sparkle for me! I have a few sequin skirts and jackets, but recently I bought these fabulous trousers on eBay. The sequins are flippy – silver one way and multi-coloured the other. I’ve teamed them with a pink bow top that reminds me of a Christmas present…I’m definitely getting into the festive spirit!

Just give me all the sparkle! (and then some) Nothing says holidays like sequins and sparkle, and a top like this one can take me through New Year’s Eve in shiny style. The sequined sleeves are everything. Click through to read all about my top, and get my style tips for looking fabulous this holiday season!

Nicole of High Latitude Style

Our Christmas season started with a Christmas concert of the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra. The dress code was festive Fairbanks Formal. It means you can wear an evening gown. So I did with a puffer vest over the gown. Independent from the aforementioned dress code, for me festive attire means evening wear.

Sequins, velvet, tulle, lace, silver or gold sandals, big costume jewelry, bold jewel colors or black. However, given the cold weather of Interior Alaska, I have to be creative to stay warm. Leggings under an evening gown, for instance.

For some festive holiday spirit, I pulled together big bold prints for what is probably my happiest outfit ever. I could not stop smiling while wearing this combination of red plaid and giant stars with double pom poms on my head.

I don’t like to spend money specifically on holiday clothes that I can wear only once a year, so see how I take everyday dress clothes and add some sparkle for the Christmas season.

Joy of Joyous Styling

A little sparkle for the holidays!

I subdued it with a black wool turtleneck. 

I added a statement necklace and rockstud heels  to complete the look.

      I have no idea, it has been forever! Never knew that other countries just had one!

    Some gorgeous festive outfits here, Nancy, including yours. Of course you’ll have to wear tulle 🙂 I’ve no idea what I’m going to wear, I hardly ever do in advance. I just stand in front of my wardrobe and pick something on the day itself! xxx

      I will probably do too Ann. Because it all depends on the mood we are in right!

    Great look. It’s so interesting that my great aunt from Nijmegen also used to wear black with polka dots for Christmas. It’s a classic. Great finishing touch with the flowers on the belt. I love that you used neutral understated colors for them. It makes the outfit so elegant and festive.

    I’m planning on tulle this year! Yes, you read that right! I finally got a tulle skirt!! I am so excited. As soon as I saw it, I thought of you, Nancy! I didn’t know you had two Christmas Days! Does that mean you get twice the gifts (and have to give twice the gifts)?

    All of these outfits are so pretty…unique and perfect for the season!

    Nancy, I think everyone looks absolutely fabulous this month…from the sparkles to the lace and everything in between! I am obsessed with your classically chic look, and how you mixed patterns and textures. Lovely! Happy Holidays!
