The Store: Poppy and Stella. Her Look: All black is so classic and chic. I love the tailored look of the culotte pants paired with the cardigan style blazer. Trend Watch: Sparkly statement jewelry is definitely my favorite trend for the holidays. It can easily take any outfit up a notch. Style Tip: I always like to wear one element that is unexpected. Either layering a scarf, wearing a fun coat, or adding an accessory.  Think outside of the norm!

The Store: Sassanova Her Look: This outfit is both cute and comfortable. The dress is flirty and girly, while the boots make it comfy, casual, and add a little edge. Trend Watch: Bring on the velvet! Velvet is a huge holiday trend and I can't get enough of it. Even crushed velvet is adorable! Style Tip: Comfort is key. If I am not going to be comfortable then what’s the point? No heels that are too high or jeans that are too tight. If you’re uncomfortable it will show.

The Store: Brightside Boutique Her Look: I love pairing trends. I'm a huge fan of jumpsuits, so I paired this black jumpsuit with a lumberjack-style kimono to incorporate holiday flare while keeping it casual. Trend Watch: My favorite holiday trend this year is solid metallic. It says holiday glam, rather than yelling it. Style Tip: Style your look around one piece. This will allow you to keep your focus rather than being all over the place with a ton of different options in mind.
