Dress for the Holidays 2020 to Help You Feel Better & More Festive

December 8, 2020   |   by Guest Blogger   |    blog category, Community, Fashion

The holidays are here, and even though we’re staying home with our families or on Zoom with friends, there’s no reason not to dress up. Whether you realize it or not, getting out of your pajamas will help add cheer to the festivities and fun.

Here are some tips on what to wear (and gifts to give, hint, hint) for the cozy, stylish holidays of 2020.

Velvet and velour are trending this year. Choose wide-leg pants for a comfortable yet elegant flair. What to wear on top? Instead of an oversized sweater choose a more fitted style for a polished look.

Sequins are a natural for the holidays. Although we saw head to toe sequins on the runway, it’s a little much for at home. Instead, combine your sequins with basics.

  • A sequined camisole from the Banana Republic is perfect with black jeans for sipping hot-spiced wine by the fireplace!  
  • A sequin-embellished sweater from J. Jill, Talbots, or the Banana Republic will have you sparkling like champagne at your Zoom parties!

Dressing for Zoom is all about your tops. Colorful blouses or sweaters and a touch of lipstick will give you a nice holiday glow on screen! (Psst…don’t forget to click “touch up my appearance” in video settings.)

For a more casual yet festive look, try cashmere sweaters paired with plush corduroys or velvet jeans…just right for family gatherings. If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of pants that constrict your middle, (you know, for that big meal,) try a sweater dress. Whatever your style: trendy, relaxed, or classic you’ll find it at Aspen Grove!

All about comfort? Joggers have never looked better! You’ll find satin joggers at Banana Republic. Pair them with a sweater hoodie for an elegant yet sporty look.

Check out cashmere joggers at J. Jill. Top these uber soft pants with a neutral long sleeve t and a long, slim, Fair Isle print cardigan…doesn’t get much more holiday-like!

Last but not least, let’s talk about prezzy time! (You know, presents.) You’ll want and deserve a new pair of pajamas…to look and feel your best for your social media pics! (And of course, pajamas are a classic holiday gift.)
