OH HAY Y'ALL. It's almost Christmas! Imagine my excitement. Then explode that by a million and that's how much I love the holidays. So here's an extra special super bonus blog for you guys this week - three holiday looks using the latest trend, metallic denim.
I've been seeing fancy, sparkly jeans all over lately so when JustFab
released their holiday denim collection, I was all over it. They have metallic jeans in gunmetal (what I chose), black, and bronze. The material is a little thinner than the solid colors of the signature skinnies, but I found they fit true to size as well. My favorite part - they're not too long for short people like me. You can't buy a pair of skinnies without a sheen right now. It's hot, let's work it.
Layering is a great way to make tops more office appropriate, but I think people forget you can layer a sleeveless top OVER things, instead of just under! I love this peplum top because it has a little bit of sparkle and funk (check out this back zipper!)
Try layering a structured top over a button up or long-sleeve tee for a totally new look that will keep your warm without covering up the cuteness. This look is pretty much perfect for work-to-weekend too because the top has a little shine!
Outfit 2 is all about what you have to accomplish before the 25th - I actually wore this out shopping, for a little baking, even to grab all of my Christmas dinner groceries. Flat boots will keep you walking all day long and a chunky, cozy sweater in a fun color will keep you warm without a coat (perfect for mall walking in search of the perfect gift).
PS - a fun necklace always makes a sweater feel a little more special.
Can you see the sheen on these jeans?? I love how they look grey at first glance, but then you discover they're just a little more exciting. They're SO fab.
This is the most obvious, but a metallic jean is PERFECT for a night out! Whether its a fabulous holiday party or gift exchanging with your favorite girls, don't be afraid to mix some fabrics and add a little color to make a party appropriate outfit. I went with a bright pop in silk, a staple jacket in velvet, and mixed in a little lace.
For some reason, velvet just feels more festive. Am I right??
Anyway, that's three ways to rock metallic denim for the holidays - and beyond. They're a lot more versatile than you think, and I'd totally recommend you check out JustFab's
