I Found the Perfect Holiday Outfit (and It Isn't a Dress)

A few months ago, I told you about an L.A.-based fashion brand that basically feels like the wardrobe of my Paris-loving dreams. Well, L’AGENCE is at it again, but this time it has released an offering of super-elevated festive pieces that don’t make me feel like a walking disco ball. I have to be real: I love the holidays, but I don’t normally cherish holiday dressing. (Who wants to buy a sequin top you’ll wear once and promptly banish to the back of your closet?) This collection changed my mind: Rather than flashy pieces of the one-and-done variety, the L’AGENCE collection is brimming with luxe fabrics and sleek silhouettes you’ll wear well beyond December. Keep reading to see the pieces I’ll be wearing to every party on my iCal, and then shop the rest of the excellent collection.

A Luxe Velvet Blazer

I mean, you can basically feel how soft this blazer is through your screen. The deep-blue hue makes a statement no matter what you choose to pair it with.

A Detailed Bell-Sleeve Top

While yes, I’ll be skipping the sequins this holiday season, that doesn’t mean I’m trying to avoid shine altogether. If you’re looking for a bit of sparkle, go for a top like this pretty black one with gold Lurex threading. I’ll be styling it under the velvet blazer for an extra-luxe situation.

Flared Tuxedo Jeans

To complete my look, I’ll slip on a pair of flared tuxedo pants. This entire ensemble reminds has serious Bianca Jagger vibes—exactly what I’m going for when headed to Christmas dinner with the fam. As always, I’ll throw on my favorite white pumps and tuck my go-to white clutch under my arm.


You could totally wear a turtleneck under this for another festive layered look.

This brocade double-breasted blazer is a great alternative to my velvet pick, no?

Wear this slip dress as is, or layer a lace top underneath—your call!

Not into sequins? You can still add a touch of sparkle via embellished jeans. These are extra in every way possible.

Once again, velvet wins. This jumpsuit is a one-and-done; just throw on a jacket!
