Holiday Jackets | 2014

It’s that time of year, holiday events and parties seem to be sprinkling everyone’s calendars these days. Holiday dressing can be a ton of fun, but it can also be a little tricky. So many holiday trends come in the form of tiny dresses and tank tops so it’s important to find the perfect layer to keep you warm on those wintery nights!

To help a sister out this year, I pulled together some of my favorite holiday jackets, all under $100! Some are dressy, some are comfy, but they are all adorable! As you can see, most include faux fur and sequins- just a couple of my favorite things! Share your favorite in the comments below and stay warm <3!

Falling for Fringe

I used to associate fringe with summer, but those days are over. I no longer reserve fringe for coachella and days at the beach. Fringe is now for all seasons and all occasions, I even dress it up for special occasions!

My favorite take on the trend for fall is leather fringe. I am obsessed with the Forever 21 jacket and the Nikki Rich Fringe Top below. The leather adds a dressy, warm, fall element to the trend. And how fun is that pop of yellow fringed clutch? It’s definitely a statement piece and is the perfect accessory for that little black dress hanging in your closet.

Fall Layering Piece: The Quilted Vest

I’ve been looking for a budget friendly vest for awhile now and finally stumbled upon this quilted one from Old Navy. Although it’s thin, this vest is the perfect fall layering piece. I love the olive color, but you have to be careful how you style it so you don’t start looking like a lumberjack!

Olive Quilted Vest

That’s why I chose to pair this vest with some über-feminine pieces. By styling olive with soft blush, it immediately softens the look up. I also layered it with a delicate sweater, my scallop clutch and some gold accessories which immediately brings up the sophistication level. What’s your favorite fall layering piece?

The Layered Look

I came across these below shirttail sweaters at J. Crew and fell in love. At first, I thought these sweaters were styled with a chiffon top layered under it. After close examination, I noticed it’s actually a 2 for 1 deal! Who knew faux layering could look so chic? These layered styles are fun, but I hate spending $100+ on a sweater. Luckily, I was able to find a few similar styles, some for less than half the price!

Are these styles still out of your price range? No prob, get the look for even less by layering what you already have in your closet! If you need help finding the right layering pieces, check out Forever 21 for some great deals. I’ve included some perfect pieces  below, both under $20! Time to do some “old fashioned” layering yourself!
