How LA Girls Do Holiday Style

‘Tis the season to don all the sparkle and shine your heart desires, but that doesn’t mean it has to be 24/7 glitz and glam. Cold-weather staples like cable-knit sweaters and leather jackets certainly have a place during the holidays, and festive style can totally be tempered for more casual occasions. Renowned for their laid-back aesthetic, LA girls know this best, as everything from distressed denim to of-the-moment slip dresses can be adapted for low-key potluck dinners and cocktail parties alike. Here, we show you how to reimagine off-duty winter separates from bebe like a SoCal girl for a range of obligations this season.

Holiday Style With bebe

Cable-Knit Sweater

Knitwear is a pillar of any cold-weather wardrobe, and we endorse wearing all manner of sweaters whenever possible. Don a cream-colored pullover with matching tuxedo trousers for a chic winter-white ensemble; a pair of sleek pumps and gold statement earrings make it totally cocktail-hour-ready.

Trendy Bomber Jacket

This season's ubiquitous bomber jacket is a great outerwear option for the party circuit thanks to its evening-ready silky fabric. For a trend-right look, try with a choker necklace, tonal bodysuit, black denim and pointed-toe booties.

Distressed Denim

Despite the season's generally more fanciful vibe, denim can still be worn on select occasions. Relegate your distressed jeans to cozy, evening-in occasions like pitch-in dinners, wine nights and Secret Santa exchanges with your closest friends. Add a feminine twist by topping with a delicate lace blouse.

Slip Dress

The slip dress might be the single hardest-working piece for a number of seasonal occasions. Dress it up for date night with statement jewelry and a faux-fur coat, or down layered over a thin turtleneck.

Leather Jacket

Breathe new life into a trusty leather jacket by pairing it with a velvet dress—the two textures are each other's perfect complement.

High-Waisted Trousers

A great alternative to fancy dresses, tailored black trousers are an elevated choice for evening. Style with a classic blouse and statement blazer, or try with an embellished camisole for an eye-catching effect.
