We hit the Cyber Monday sales pretty hard. The result? Packages upon packages of regrettable pieces we pulled the trigger on in 30%-off excitement—and then ended up returning. So when we (finally) got around to sending back our returns, we went back to more disciplined shopping, aka searching for pieces we’ll actually wear right now (and straight through into 2019). After poking around, we landed on AG’s low-key holiday collection that’s highly wearable and worth every cent. We’re talking versatile suiting separates, red sweaterdresses, and the kind of skinny jeans that make our legs look 10 miles long. So start printing the return labels for those your unnecessary sale purchases and see our favorites from AG’s holiday collection.
Skinny jeans are great and all, but if you're feeling extra this season (and want to spend your holiday bonus on something special) we suggest going for a leather skinny pant since they’re particularly good to dress up in the evening. When bundling up for a chic night out, style an oversize cable knit with the pants, balanced with floss-thin strappy sandals (if your toes can handle the cold!). Otherwise, chic white boots will do the trick.
A pinstripe blazer with a touch of sheen is the holiday version of the plaid option we’ve been wearing for basically two years straight. We’re into wearing it as a top with the matching pants (and some killer heels and earrings) for a modern holiday party look.
