From company parties to best friend reunions, the holidays are filled with occasions to dress up. Having a few new outfits on hand is never a bad idea, but it’s not always easy to figure out which holiday trends are worth investing in (and where to find them). That’s why it’s great to get a few tips from an expert, like TZR's own Editor-in-Chief, Kathy Lee.
This year, Lee is turning to NET-A-PORTER for all the season’s best looks — from tie-dyed knitwear and bold graphics to unexpected accessories like oversized enamel rings. The retailer’s curated holiday selection is the perfect place to get inspired for every festive occasion.
Whether Lee is putting together an outfit for happy hour cocktails or a day in the office, NET-A-PORTER has everything she needs. Ahead, Lee shares her favorite looks for the season and tips on how to make them your own.
Neon brights are typically associated with summertime, but they’re perfect for the festive season, too. Take a cue from Lee and embrace vibrant colors and patterns, like this Christopher John Rogers neon pleated skirt. “It’s just the right amount of color for this monochromatic-prone dresser, and I’m drawn to the optical effect with each passing step,” she says.
A bustier evokes a delicate, romantic vibe, but can easily be made edgy or sophisticated, depending on how you style it. “For those days when I go from work to drinks with friends, this is the outfit I’ll have on rotation,” says Lee. “The strapless bustier is a key piece to have in your wardrobe this season. It’s versatile enough to wear under a blazer at work or on its own when you’re ready to let loose.”
You might feel compelled to wear red, green, and sparkles this season, but Lee wants you to forget those cliche colors. “I plan to freshen up my festive look this season with a fun, graphic dress from JW Anderson and a Bea Bongiasca blue enamel ring. Both pieces I know I will continue to wear beyond the holidays,” she says.
Who says being festive has to involve bright colors? Lee says that if looking effortless is more your beat, opt for an all-white pant look by The Row to celebrate in style. “Its fluid shapes and minimalist design makes this an easy choice when it comes to holiday dressing — just throw on a pair of your favorite statement earrings and strappy sandals,” she says.
