01.19 Capsule Wardrobe: 3 Essential Accessories for Holiday Dressing



When I was planning this capsule wardrobe, one thing I kept in mind was that this particular capsule would carry me through the holidays. Some people decide on a separate "special occasion capsule" that they use for any type of dressier events, but since I was already bending the rules quite a lot, I decided I would work within my fall capsule instead. With the right accessories, this is actually pretty easy to do!

  • Sparkle - Literally any sort of sequin-y, metallic-y detail is going to make even the most basic outfit holiday ready. I found these J. Crew Factory tights (now something like 50% off!) a couple weeks ago and couldn't resist their subtle sparkle. I knew they'd help make my capsule skirts and dresses holiday appropriate.

  • Clutches - Having a couple great clutches is essential as they're going to class up any look. It's also nice not having to worry about a bigger bag when you're at a party with lots of people mulling about. You can look for one that has a built in chain strap to keep your hands free if that's a concern!

  • Heels - I mean, duh, I know. But it astounds me every year that I'll go to a party and my friends will be in flats... the same friends who lament about never having an opportunity to wear their cute heels. This is that opportunity! Even as someone who religiously wears heels, this is the time of year I dig out the neglected pairs. If you're including shoes in your capsule, cheat on them a little and wear the heels that I know you hung onto even though you never wear. ;)

Also, side-note: If you're in the market for some party shoes, these booties are actually incredibly comfortable. I've worn them all night at a wedding and throughout Thanksgiving in Boston without so much as a pinch. Not to mention they're freakin' adorable.

Anyway, what are your tips for spicing up your regular clothes/capsule for the holidays? Do we all agree that now is the time for those poor, unloved heels to make an appearance?
