Whether your holiday season calls for popping champagne in the city or cozying up on a luxe cabin getaway, festive celebrations of all forms always call for show-stopping looks. In partnership with Ralph Lauren, we called on Rachel Zoe to show us the styles she and her husband Rodger count on for the party season. They're pieces that provide endless options for a super-chic winter, long after the holidays have ended. With cool classic influences and chic, laid-back vibes, these are timeless staples that can make any look holiday-ready.
Take a coordinated look one step further with pops of pattern in complementary hues. Whether you leave a scarf peeking out from under a suede vest or layer a leopard-print bag over a sophisticated black outfit, accessories are key.
The cozy factor is on-point with this look, which is just as comfy as it is classic. Throw shearling accents over tailored denim and a polished turtleneck for the perfect retro-inspired look, then take a style cue from Rachel with a stack of glimmering gold rings.
To add a bit of fun to a serious color palette, top your ensemble with a cable-knit beanie. The pom detailing adds whimsy to any look, which is an important balance when your footwear (hi, multi-colored heeled boots) is high-impact.
With a few (or all!) of these style essentials in tow, you're ready to step into a super-chic winter in style.
