Are your outfits for Christmas ready yet, girls? To help you prepare for the holiday season, I´m featuring here six feminine, but with a hint of power, outfits from Coast. If there´s one phrase that truly describes these looks, it´s “less is more”.
1. christmas look knit top + leather look mini skirt
The non-defeated monochrome. So this is a black and white monochrome, but what little details we did to alter the mono-statement for the better is we opted for a black leather skirt, layered it with a simple white pullover, added some black tights and pumps, and injected a hint of black floral.
2. christmas look knit top + delicate pleated skirt
Dress to impress with pleats. Long pleated skirts never fail to add drama to every outfit you can possibly wear. Even if it´s worn with a simple top, the sway of those pleat-y drape is just irresistible. But this Christmas, to style up your black pleated skirt, why not team it up with a lovely bardot knit top?
3. blush and black for work
Moving on to the new way to wear monochrome this Christmas season, blush is the new white to tandem with black. While black and white color blocking may come off too serious, the blush provides a good dose of girly-ness to soften the black.
The best thing about this blush top with black ruffle is you can style it for work with tailored trousers or pencil skirt, or you can prep it for a cocktail party with a midi laced skirt or an A-line, floor-sweeping skirt.
4. blush and black jacquard + embellishment
Another way to keep your mono look interesting is by creating an I-love-lace statement. Take for example a pair of lace trousers, how are you dressing it up for Christmas? Steal the style cue from Coast.
5. floral print cardigan for winter
Tired of the same-look, same-style cardi for winter layering? Coming soon at Coast is this long cardigan featuring a drape-y hem with a hint of dark floral print. Truly a nice way to add interest on an all-black holiday look.
6. floral print midi dress
Floral print is not retreating anywhere during winter season, it´s just getting bolder amidst the black background. You see, the bloom gets bigger, the shades go softer in pastel, but the overall statement remains … “I may be feminine, but fierce.”
What do you think of the less is more approach to Christmas outfits?
