Tis the season, ladies! It’s that time of year where you have to shop for that perfect holiday party outfit or outfits, depending on how many events you have to attend. It can be a burden to some, but fear not! You have come to the right place, or live in the right location. You don’t have to go far to uncover fashionable holiday attire. Your local boutiques have stocked their stores with festive merchandise.
The first store I hit was the Green Goddess Boutique in Hinsdale. Elyce Rembos from the boutique suggested the line, Haute Hippie, which she carries in her store. This brand is exactly what women need during this time of year. Between the embellished necklines and collars on their tops, to their dressy blazers detailed with gold lace, to their twist on the classic shirt dress, you can’t go wrong with anything you select. And because they have so many separates, you can mix and match your pieces and make sure you are set, just in case you get that last minute invite.
Rembos also pointed out their extensive collection of statement necklaces. By just adding that one piece of jewelry to your look, you can go from frumpy to fabulous in an instant. Remember, less is more. Don’t over accessorize your outfit.
On to La Grange and Vintage Charm. This store loves making sure they carry one-of-a-kind vintage pieces so women can feel extra special in their holiday outfit. Whether it’s a dress, a stole or a piece of jewelry, buying something that has a history and is unique, will make you have that understated elegance appeal.
The store also has a supply of stylish dresses for the season. From basic black to champagne or a combination of colors, you will find the one that will fit your style and party. And don’t forget your evening bag!! The ladies at Vintage Charm recommend one of their clutches with a strap. That way you can go hands free!
Just a reminder, make sure you know exactly the dress code for your party and plan accordingly. Your “Girls’ Night Out” look and your “Company Party” look should not be the same.
