Today is December 1st! Officially, the unofficial first day of winter and the first day of the holiday season. With Thanksgiving behind us and the turkey and gravy on hold until next year, we are ready to focus all our attention on our winter favorites.
This season, there are always tons of parties and events to look forward to. Reunions with old friends, celebrations with family, parties with coworkers, and of course, Christmas! In order to look your best and accessorize with perfection, we have put together a few of our favorite outfits for this Kendra Phillip studded holiday season.
1. Holiday Cocktail Party
Can’t decide what to wear? An LBD is a must-have for every fashionista. No holiday outfit guide would be complete without a Little Black Dress. Little black dresses are a staple any time of year, but especially during the holiday season. Black is always slimming and always right for the occassion. Black pairs great with just about everything in the Kendra Phillip collection. This LBD lights up with the addition of a few pave pieces. Try the Grace Single Bar Pave Necklace and the Ellie Pave Mini Cuff for a touch of glamour.
Dress: The Jet Set Diaries Fantasia Skater Dress
2. Holiday Work Party
Of course, holiday work parties! For these events, it is always a good idea to dress more conservative than you normally would but at the same time dress to impress. A high neck line is a great way to class it up a bit! What pairs great with a high neck line? The Mini Star Necklace will rest high on your chest and won’t distract from the beatiful lace pattern. A few layered mini cuffs are the perfect way to add some fun to this otherwise elegant look.
Dress: BB Dakota Yale Lace Dress
3. Christmas Eve
My favorite day of the year! Dressing up for Christmas eve is always fun. Red and black seem to be the go to colors for ladies everywhere. Why not step a little bit out of your comfort zone and dare to go blue? There is a shade of blue for everyone. A flowy dress like this is great for two reasons: comfort and ease! No thinking necessary, just slip it on and accessorize. The simplicity of this dress effortlessly lends itself to a large statement cuff. The Chloe Cut Out Cuff is a show stopper, adding a little edge to an otherwise feminine style. Complete the look with a simple Bar initial pendant and voila, you are ready for Santa!

4. Christmas Day
Christmas day is more casual around my house. More often than not, I wind up grabbing a new piece from under the tree and incorporating it into whatever I had planned on wearing. My go-to Christmas day look is an oversized sweater paired with a mini skirt. This look is effortless and comfortable. Plus, that baggy sweater can hide any excess eating you did the night before. Since your wrists will most likely be covered by your sweater, I love to add classic accessories. The Cigar Initial Ring is a perfect everyday piece you can keep on your finger for Christmas day. Add classic earrings, like the Ellie Bar Earrings and a simple necklace like the Grace Single Bar to get your everyday favorites, holiday ready. Throw on some black booties and head out!
5. New Years Eve
Ringing in the New Year is always bittersweet. Overrated holiday parties and outrageously priced clubs are difficult to escape. If you wind up RSVPing yes to one of these coveted events, you better put on your holiday best. Sequins and sparkles are hot this season. Why not ring in the New Year as the center of attention? Since you want to showcase your dress, pair your sequins of choice with a single Gina Arrow Head Cuff and high polished Rosie earrings. The Arrow cuff adds a subtle edge to your wrist and the Rosie earrings make any outfit sexy.
