Winter Vintage Glam

Linnea White

The holiday parties may have passed, but Winter Vintage Glam never fades. The timeless touch of whimsical pieces and eye catching glam is a dashing combination. This outfit mixes vintage finds with contemporary brands flawlessly for a look oozing style with class!

We already know I have a thing for Winter Whites (from clothes to hair color), so when this vintage Angora sweater came into the shop last week, the swooning commenced, inspiring this entire outfit. Paired with a pair of Topshop tuxedo style jogger pants, sassy black heels, and this stunning feathery jacket, I was oozing sartorial elegance.

When the pieces are so effortlessly chic, accessories are meant to compliment, not overpower. After all, we're talking about Vintage Glam here. The longline jacket and the long necklace help contrast the cropped sweater to lengthen the neck and torso, making a curvier, shorter frame extra tall. A pair of medallion earrings pair fabulously with the velvet embroidered vintage clutch, and, of course, what's more retro than a classic red lip.

From Winter cocktail party, New Year's Eve party, Winter wedding reception, or just for a night on the town, this outfit is ready to just about any Winter soirée.

NYE Outfit: Chic Sparkle to Ring in the New Year

Linnea White

We're one week away from New Year's Eve, and that means it's almost time to count down to midnight and bellow "Old Lang Syne" in that perfect little sparkly NYE outfit with friends and family, ringing in 2017 with good cheer!

What's more perfect for NYE than a little black dress decked out in sequins with the on-trend cold shoulder look. To keep the dress chic (and not overtly sexy), we threw on a classic black trench coat, adding length to an otherwise mini cut. Paired with a colorful pair of pumps and a red lip, side swept hair and simple threader studs, this look is certain catch the eye of a special someone for the midnight smooch.

Thanks to the sparkling lights of the Downtown Mall's Christmas tree for a splendid backdrop! And a little extra tinsel garland just for fun.

We’ve been talking Holiday Style, featuring darling outfits for your holiday party season. What's your favorite way to get snazzy for that soirée?
