Four Wardrobe Must-Haves This Holiday Season

’Tis the season for holiday spirit—and shopping sprees.
Pair a knit dress with a heeled boot, maybe a beret, and your favorite jewelry.

’Tis the season for holiday spirit—and shopping sprees. After all, the holidays mean more parties, of both the intimate and rollicking variety, which means you must have something fab to wear. Whether you’re keeping it low-key at home or gussying up for a festive soirée, dressing for the occasion is important. From comfy to glam, this year’s trends have you covered.

This year’s fashion leans more towards demure silhouettes with long sleeves and calf-length hems, but these knit dresses are far from frumpy. Add a heeled boot, maybe a beret, and your favorite jewelry—you’ll reach a level of style that can only be called Parisian chic. Try: South Moon Under. Multiple locations including 815 Aliceanna Street, 410-685-7820

COCKTAIL PARTY: Miniskirt Suit
Thanks to the ’90s revival, fashion has brought back both the miniskirt and its matching blazer. There is something about this combo that gives off the perfect amount of femininity and poise. It’s a look that’s perfect for after-hours work parties or cocktails with friends. Try: Brightside Boutique. Multiple locations including 915 W 36th Street, 410-814-0595

Amid the rise of the “cottagecore” fashion trend, coats made of patchworked quilts have taken center stage. They’re warm and nostalgic, perfect for quiet fall evenings. But if the colorful look of a patchwork quilt coat isn’t up your alley, a new monochrome quilted jacket is just as cozy. Try: Sassanova. Multiple locations including 805 Aliceanna Street, 410-244-1114

A NIGHT IN: Fuzzy Slides
Sometimes the best way to celebrate is to…do the absolute least. But that doesn’t mean we’re confined to sweatpants and tattered tees. A dinner for two or a wholesome family dinner? A pair of soft slides can elevate your stay-at-home wear for an effortless yet put-together look. Try: A Style Studio. 25 Hooks Lane, #Ste. 111, Pikesville, 410-484-1115
