Velvet Holiday Outfit – Two Ways

So the hero piece of this outfit is these velvet leggings.  The velvet trend is huge right now.  I live in Connecticut so the holiday party season is a cold time of year.  I wanted to give an alternative to cocktail dresses (see this round-up of affordable holiday dresses) for those of us who are pale and averse showing leg in the Winter.

Express has REALLY nailed the velvet trend this season and they also have tons of sparkly options for those of us who like to add some glitter to our holiday outfits.   Right now Express has all of their holiday outfits 40% off!

Cozy Velvet Holiday Outfit

The first velvet holiday outfit option is the warmer of the two.   This white turtleneck sweater is SUPER soft and snuggly.   This sweater is something you could also dress down as well (think loungewear).  I am wearing size small in the sweater and XS in the leggings.   I would definitely recommend sizing down in the velvet leggings if you’re between sizes.   If leggings aren’t your thing – Express also offers a wide leg velvet pant too!

I froze getting the photos of this second velvet holiday outfit option.   The sparkling camisole is GORGEOUS and has a sexy back.  I am wearing size XS in the top (and breast petals if you’re wondering about the bra situation).  Lucite heels are super trendy and give the illusion of longer legs.   This pair of lucite heels is on major sale and nearly identical to the older pair I am wearing.

My exact clutch is older but you can shop more bag options here.  Express carries tons of statement accessories (at great prices) that are similar to the ones I am wearing above.

I tried to get those sequin leggings for a holiday party last December and my size was sold out.   So if sequin leggings are on your wishlist you might want to shop early in case the same thing happens this year.

    Hi Rachel.
    love all your posts. I’m getting a beautiful wardrobe. Have a question. What length is your M necklace you wear? 16 or 18 inches?
    Is it better to do your last name initial then your first name initial?

      Hi Lori!!!
      I am wearing the 16″ length. I got my son’s initial which is also my last name but I would recommend your first name initial for yourself.
      Thanks for reading 🙂
