Winter has officially his Houston! In order to prepare you for all your winter adventures we called on the help of Leigh from Girl Around Town to help us pick our some essentials for your cold weather closet.
Look 1: Leopard Lady
With the holiday season comes holiday parties. I found the perfect piece for you’ll want to throw on for any occasion – cocktail party, office party, or formal family gathering.
“I love this dress because it’s not your typical cocktail attire. The leopard print pattern adds an element of surprise and the dress’ A-line cut helps keep your waist looking small even while overindulging in holiday goodies.”
ML by Monique Lhuiller, cheetah print cocktail dress, $448 at Elizabeth Anthony Esther Wolf 713.622.1331
“The clutch nearly knocked me over when I saw it. The stunning black onyx makes this bag a true statement piece – it’s just too beautiful to set down”
Kara Ross gold, onyx clutch, $1,575 at Elizabeth Anthony Esther Wolf 713.622.1331
Look 2: Military Chic
For your not so dressy adventures, Leigh scoped out a perfect ensemble for a night out in H-Town, a family dinner or happy hour with the gals. The best part about this outfit? Each piece can be paired with other favorites from your closet or you can combine all the Carrie Ann pieces, like Leigh did.
“Military green is a great color for the holidays as its festive without being “in your face” holiday.”
Yoana Baraschi black blazer, $359 at Carrie Ann Boutique 713.492.2666; Naven greem peplum top, $208 at Carrie Ann Boutique 713.492.2666; Yoana Baraschi ankle length, metallic detailed slacks, $238 at Carrie Ann Boutique 713.492.2666
“It’s all about the top. The peplum cut is figure flattering and the gold zipper that runs down the back adds an extra element of glamour to the piece.”
Look 3: Your Hearts Desire
Bulky, loose-fitting sweaters are a must for the colder weather, especially if you’re looking for something a little more casual. Pair a bright-colored sweater with your favorite leggings and – BAM – you’ve got the perfect look for the season!
“This look is great for winter as it’s incredibly comfortable but the cut of the sweater and the patterned leggings take the outfit up a notch – it’s effortlessly chic attire.”
Amet & Ladoue cashmere scarf, $220 at High Gloss 713.961.7868; Minnie Rose 100% cashmere powwow, $339 at BB1 Classic 713.395.0830; Desigual script handwriting leggings, $59 at BB1 Classic 713.395.0830; Booties – models own
“My favorite part of the outfit has to be the heart on the bottom of the leggings. It’s the little details that always make an outfit for me.”
Look 4: Furrrrr-ific!
Fur is a must-have for this winter’s chillier weather, and this ombre sensation will keep you warm in utmost style.
“To me a fur vest goes with just about anything. Throw it on with a t-shirt and jeans or over a fancy cocktail dress – it’s a go anywhere, do anything piece.”
Ombre bordeaux fur vest, $398 at BB1 Classic 713.395.0830; Bonnie Strauss hand dyed silk and crystal earrings, $209 at BB1 Classic 713.395.0830
“I adore the silver leather cuff from High Gloss – it’s one piece, but looks like you threw on a slew of bangles. The color is fantastic and the leather makes it light so you don’t feel weighted down when you wear it.”
Avital Coorsh pewter leather, silver cuff bracelet, $235 at High Gloss 713.961.7868
Look 5: for your pooch!
Check out Chuck in his Longhorn jersey. Of course, being an alumni, I’m a big UT fan and I thought this was the perfect present for Chuck this holiday season!
