Last Minute Outfits to Save the Day

Quick, it’s another holiday event.  What are you going to wear?  I’ve heard from several women that they’ve bailed on events simply because they didn’t have anything to wear.  I do NOT want you to miss out on spending time with family, friends or business associates because your closet isn’t prepared.

Over the past few months we’ve had a steady stream of clients coming in for styling appointments with time to shop for exactly what they need to take them through the season with ease.  It always brings a smile to my face as I scroll through Facebook and see pictures of these clients wearing their new outfits, feeling beautiful and rocking their style with ease!  I know we’ve done our job.

Now, I want to help you!  Chances are you’ve got at least one event coming up this weekend.  If you haven’t given any thought to what you’re going to wear, then I want to give you a little inspiration.  You can create these outfits quickly and easily, either with items that you already own, or pieces that you can pick up quickly at StyleFinder Boutique (give us a call and we’ll have it ready when you arrive – 919-454-3068). Instead of just throwing on any old pair of pants, sweater and comfy shoes, I want to share with you just how easy a pulled-together Christmas casual look can be!

First, start with a pair of jeans.  Your favorite ankle jeans that you wore all year long are perfect, because you’re going to be tucking them into boots and giving them a second life!  Next, add in a chic top.  Bell sleeves are HOT this season.  Red is always fabulous, but why not try a gorgeous emerald green, plum, burgundy or silver?  Then add on your third layer.  It’s hard to wear a jacket with bell sleeves, so grab a vest.  We love these faux fur vests (just $58!) that come in ivory, grey and black.  Top it off with a gorgeous statement necklace that brings light to the face (French Kande) and you have an outfit that is ready for anything!

For your next event, swap out your top.  This sleeveless tank with cowl in a lovely shade of amethyst layers perfectly under a crushed velvet jacket (both from Bobeau).  Pair these with skinny dark-wash jeans and tall black boots for a party-ready look that is about as comfortable as you can get!  Then dazzle them with sparkly earrings that catch the light and you’re feeling sexy and chic!   

Need an upgrade from jeans?  These gorgeous velveteen brocade pull-on ankle pants are the perfect starting point for your next outfit.  Add in a black tunic with ombre sparkles, then bookend with a faux fur vest and suede booties in cranberry.  This look is greater than the sum of its parts, giving you more bang for your buck and great pieces you can mix and match with lots of others to create multiple looks.  A gorgeous statement necklace (French Kande) seals the deal.    

Looking great for your next event doesn’t take a feat of epic proportions.  It just takes a shot of inspiration, a little prep work and an outfit that makes you feel more like YOU to help you rock your next event in style!
