With holiday party season upon us I know you want to amp up your everyday style but you don’t want to put a lot of thought or money into your outfit. Here’s a secret to dressing for a special occasion without the fuss: it’s all in the accessories. Add in one or two expensive-looking accessories to instantly elevate a basic outfit. You’ll look elegant and polished for your holiday soiree.
Faux Fur Coat
Fur always looks and feels luxurious even when it is not real. So a faux fur coat is the perfect way to look chic and stay warm around the holidays. I don’t recommend a shaggy fur coat for this purpose because it feels more casual. Definitely try a coat in a rich, jewel-tone hue like blue, green, or red or solid black or white for the holiday season. All of these coats are priced at $100 or less.
A quilted handbag has the look and feel of a much more expensive Chanel bag but without the expensive price tag. I prefer a quilted purse with a metal chain strap. Even better, all of these purses are under $60.
Studded Heels or Flats
You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to have an expensive looking pair of sandals. It’s the metallic studs that add interest to these heels. Fortunately, there are plenty of imitations that look just as good and won’t put you in debt. I love these studded ballet flats if you are looking for a more comfortable alternative.
