Holiday Style: Silver & White

Good morning! Welcome back to 25 Days of Winter Fashion. Today I’m styling a simple silver and white outfit that is perfect for more casual holiday events when you want to look festive, but not over-the-top.

I’ve been loving the sweaters at Banana Republic lately. They aren’t kowtowing to the oversized trend, and they have many options for those of us who prefer a more traditional fit. I wore one of their ribbed v-neck sweaters in my post for Ray-Ban earlier this month, and today I’m styling this silver boatneck sweater.

SALE ALERT >> Banana Republic is running a 40% off sale right now, no code needed. Order by Sunday, 12/18 at 11:59PM EST for free 12/23 delivery.

I know anyone can throw on a sweater and jeans with cute shoes and call it a day, so I tried to come up with something a little bit unexpected. I’ll probably wear this sweater most often with distressed skinnies and ballet flats, but for this post I decided to pair it with white jeans and nude pumps for a fun holiday going-out look. I carried a metallic clutch and accessorized with jewelry that isn’t too fancy but has just enough bling to compliment the shimmery sweater.

You can't go wrong with metallics for holiday style!

The shimmer in the sweater makes it festive without being too dressy for everyday wear, so I’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of it. The boatneck is different, and it has some nice detailing in the knit around the arms and down the sides. It also comes in a pretty pale pink!

I’m wearing my Lucky Brand tribal necklace and earrings. I love how they have both silver and gold and they’re dressy without being too much. The clutch is old, from Stella & Dot. It’s perfect, the way it is perforated and has a nude material behind the metallic, so it pulls in the nude shoes.

These white jeans are fantastic and I absolutely love them, but you definitely want to size up. I’m wearing a 30, and I usually wear 29 and even 28 sometimes. For a less spendy pair, check out the Wit & Wisdom Ab Solution skinnies. They come in white, black, and a few shades of blue denim. They’re great jeans for the price, very soft and comfortable and flattering too. I have this pair, so I can’t say for sure if the white ones are see-through or not, but they’re worth a try. They are true to size.

I can see wearing this outfit to a holiday party in someone’s home or even a casual New Year’s Eve get together. I like the monochromatic look with metallics and white for a festive occasion.

You can't go wrong with metallics for holiday style! Fashion for Women Over 40.
