As with everyday dress, fashion editors have a keen sense for the unexpected during the holidays. Veering down the road less traveled, their approach tends to be less about the glitzy cocktail number and more about experimentation—think separates in opulent fabrics and colors, or jeans paired with something ornate (sparkles, metallics) for a chicly merry effect. Moda Operandi general merchandising manager Chloe Sippe explains: “Holiday dressing should never be taken too seriously—there are no rules and it’s the perfect opportunity to have fun. Elevate your denim with sequins, velvet or statement jewelry. ‘Tis the season!” Here, Chloe shares seven picks for festive dressing like a fashion editor, each one guaranteed to elevate your look whether you’re seeking a workday nod to the season, a cool spin on cocktail attire or the spotlight at your own holiday fete.
