What are the holidays without some shopping for yourself? You’ve worked hard this past year, it’s time to indulge and enjoy a bit. These Mason & Ivy picks are perfect whether you’re on the hunt for presents to give your fashionista friends or you’re in the mood for some holiday shopping therapy. They make for great holiday party outfits as well! Just read on for holiday wardrobe must-haves from Mason & Ivy.
Wardrobe Must-Haves From Homegrown Brand Mason & Ivy
I love buying clothes and accessories from foreign labels—they’re a chance to broaden my perspective on fashion, and they’re a great way to learn about other countries and cultures. But as much as possible, I also do my best to support homegrown brands. Mason & Ivy is one of those brands. I always go to them for timeless basics, comfy casuals, and affordable takes on trends. I can spend hours at a time on their website just looking through everything! So I thought it would be a good idea to share some Mason & Ivy items I’m just about to purchase for my holiday wardrobe. Check them out and I’m sure you’ll find pieces you’ll love.
1. Lila Collared Dress
This would be the perfect outfit for a holiday party, don’t you agree? It’s the perfect mix of a classic silhouette, with cute details like a collar and eyelet fabric!
2. Alexandra Mock Halter Dress
An easy way to add holiday sparkle to your wardrobe: start with basic pieces like this white dress, then just accessorize! While the big boho-inspired necklace and heels may not be appropriate for a Holiday look, I think rhinestones and crystals, as well as glittery heels, will do the trick!
3. Lexi Pinstripe Pants
I think it’s time to invest in a pair of elephant pants. I have a feeling they’ll be the 2017’s version of culottes! If you’re worried about huge pants not flattering your figure, go for a pinstripe pant to make you look slimmer and taller.
4. Audrey Chevron Dress
Here’s another dress you can really only get away with over the holidays. Maybe I’ll re-do the sheer panel at the hem so I can wear this to work after the holidays!
5. Gold Pearl Earring Trio
What’s better than a pair of earrings? Three pairs of earrings! I love how each pair has a different personality—the leftmost one is clean and classic ala-audrey Hepburn, the middle pair is vintage-inspired and eye-catching, and the rightmost one is contemporary and trendy.
6. Celine Beige Tote
Yes, even your tote bags need some sparkle this season. Gold, silver, and metallics are trendy ways to transition your favorite accessories into the holidays.
7. Katie Wrap Dress
If you think about it, the holiday season is actually pretty short. So it might be a good idea to skip the holiday-specific pieces and go for timeless looks you can wear even after December. This wrap dress makes for an easy transition to workwear or casual weekend looks!
8. Veronica Grey Mules
Not a big fan of glitter heels? Try other luxe fabrics like velvet or satin for your holiday looks. These mules aren’t just on-trend this year, they also look super comfy!
9. Melody Blue Handbag
While clutch bags seem like the natural choice for special occasions, sometimes I find them too small! We girls bring around a lot of stuff, even if we strip it down to the bare essentials. So in these cases, I bring bigger bags that are more structured or have special details like metal and tassels.
10. Faye Striped Handbag
Here’s another great choice if you’re looking for party-appropriate handbags with enough space for all your stuff. I love both the black and powder blue ones!
11. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Retro Dress
You’ll need some cute and cozy outfits for intimate family dinners this season. This retro dress looks so comfy, I’m buying it for sure! I’d wear this on Christmas morning when I spend time with my family, opening presents and sipping on hot chocolate.
