H&M Holiday dress, 10 Crosby Derek Lam coat, Cuyana cashmere scarf, Berry Brown purse, Dr. Martens boots, Stance socks
My favorite thing about holiday dressing is the layers. A slinky little party dress can go about its business disguised in a downtown feeling coat until it really feels like coming out to play. I love that. This is exactly what I did one chilly NYC afternoon before an evening engagement that called for something a little more dressier. I’m one of those girls who doesn’t have time to stop home before heading out for the night, so putting together a look that will last me hours and help suit me for different situations is so key. This H&M midi dress that I picked up from their holiday collection is super sleek. There’s something so scandalous about a little bit of bra peaking out through sheer mesh. This tomboyishly checkered coat brings it back down for day and keeps the bite of the chill from sneaking in through the mesh.
And for your information, H&M’s Conscious Foundation will donate a percentage back to Water Aid for every $10 loaded onto a gift card. It’s a fashionable way to give back during the holidays, and it’s still not too late to take part.
