While I have a couple great everyday looks to share with you this week, there were also some great ideas for holiday dressing – for both men & women. If you need some inspiration for your festive frocks this season definitely take a look.
Julie Bowen spiced up a great fitting sweater dress by finding one with metallic stripes. If you're going to try a similar look, definitely keep the shoes & accessories minimal so the dress does the talking.
Camilla Belle looked striking in this sparkly pink number. The black belt & shoes keep it from being too Holiday Barbie, which is good to keep in mind if you're in the mood for a bright frock.
If you're bored with traditional ties and want a standout look for your holiday office party, try a contrasting bow tie like Justin Timberlake showed off at the GQ party.
Anton Yelchin looked great in a muted plaid suit. This is a great option if you're bored by the solid black & navy suits in your closet, try out a plaid or pinstripe this season.
Kerry Washington looked chic & festive in this shiny shift dress, a great way to get a head turning look for the season without showing too much skin.
(for all GQ party pics)
Nicole Richie stunned in silver Halston at her House of Harlow launch. The bright clutch is the perfect way to spice up this look and compliment the dress.
Need some street style inspiration for between your flirty party frocks?
Parfait pour Paris! I love their jackets and overall put together-ness. She's a little bit hippie chic in her floppy hat and slouchy boots and he's a little bit hipster in his slim jeans and scarf.
This is a great Fall look captured by The Sartorialist, I especially like the ruffle-collared blouse with the pounded gold necklace combination.
This Parisian look from The Sartorialist shows you a chic and simplistic way to wear various shades of brown, black and grey. Layers layers layers!
Have a great Monday, I’ll be back tomorrow with a Holiday Dressing Style File you wont want to miss!

Fashion isn’t just about what you wear, what goes on your body. It’s truly an expression of yourself that extends far beyond your clothes.
“Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time.” – Tom Ford
And just as fashion isn’t limited to the cloth that we wrap ourselves in, inspiration can also be found in many forms.
I began clipping pictures from magazines as a pre-adolescent, not so much fashion photos, just pictures that caught my eye, things that I found eye-catching or memorable or mesmerizing.
As I became interested in fashion however, my clipping habits became more focused. And while I don’t confine myself to photographs of clothing and accessories, I’ve found that my love of fashion gives this activity more direction and purpose. I’ve found that even without context, pictures can serve a creative function.
They excite. They encourage. They inspire.
The beauty and artistry captured by a photographer can be moving, regardless of the medium. Advertisements, promotional materials, editorials, art, home decor…
I’ve found that by keeping these images available to myself I can stay out of a fashion rut. They provide new ideas and inspiration, get my creative juices flowing, and motivate me to grow and evolved. I highly recommend creating and maintaining a Look Book, a collection of images that make you smile, that invigorate you, that make you push your boundaries.
Whether it’s a physical book filled with clippings like mine are, or Boards on Pinterest, this is a great creative and inspirational outlet. Keeping pictures of looks that you like, styles that call to you, photos that take your breath away, can all be great tools to keep your approach to fashion fresh and interesting.
What’s your favorite way to get inspired?
