The time of winter has approached us — holiday music is playing, snow has fallen and the temperature has dropped. It’s a time where we are hopeful and wish each other good tidings. It’s also a time of holiday parties, ice skating in Millennium Park and drinking hot cocoa. For every occasion, you of course need a stylish outfit.

My first outfit is perfect for a holiday party. It’s a deep green dress, to match the holiday theme colors, with black tights and topped with a multi-colored blanket scarf. It was a reasonably cheap outfit with the dress costing about $15 from Forever 21 and the scarf about $25 from Von Maur. I’m really happy about my scarf purchase because it’s something I’ve wanted for a while and it can be worn in so many different ways. For shoes, I plan on wearing my high-heeled black boots. They’ll be good when walking through the snow, and they also match the outfit perfectly. They can be found at Target for about $30.

My next outfit is definitely my favorite. It consists of a beige turtleneck sweater and pleather leggings, both from Nordstrom. The sweater, which is extremely comfy, cost me about $28 and the price is the same for the leggings. I’ve been trying for the past couple years to find some kind of pleather clothing, but haven’t found anything that worked until now. To finish the outfit, I bought this adorable maroon winter hat from Garage for $20. Regarding shoes, I think it can vary based on your style. I would opt for my black and gold boots. For me, this is the perfect outfit for when I’m hanging out in the city with friends during winter break.

My last outfit can fit for really any occasion, whether it be holiday gift shopping, hanging out with friends or going out for a special event. It consists of a long-sleeved maroon shirt topped with a furry cream vest. I plan to wear jeans with it and my Sorel snow boots. The vest is from Von Maur and cost about $40, the long sleeve was about $10 from Forever 21, the jeans are by Viggos from Nordstrom and cost about $60, and the boats cost $100. It’s casual, yet it can also be dressed up. While it seems like this outfit costs a large sum, I think with savvy shopping the same clothing can be found at cheaper prices elsewhere.
