It’s been a minute since I’ve had to prepare serious looks, so this holiday season, I’m looking forward to coming properly to every single event, no matter how casual. It’s been almost three years since I’ve seen so many friends, and this year feels like a reintroduction to the world. The long time away from friends can feel like an obstacle to overcome, but I actually love that we can skip the small talk and get straight into the thick of it. I imagine many of my friends have changed, as have I, and I’m hoping the outfits reflect that.
Being the obsessive shopper that I am, I have plucked nine outfits from Instagram that are worth re-creating for all the parties you plan to attend this month. I’m talking plumage, bling, not-your-average sequins, and beyond, so keep scrolling to see the statement outfits that make winter look fun.
