So luxuriously soft and cozy, this cashmere cardigan will be your best friend all Winter long. Over the holiday season, it’s the perfect piece to have. Wear it open over a tee and leggings (or even your pj’s) as you lounge around with family; or, belt it (you can even replace the fabric one with a black or brown leather belt) with skinny jeans or leggings to head out for a casual outing. The soft pink is so ethereal and pretty, and it comes in a neutral taupe through the ‘shop it’ button, too. In XXS-XL and Petites, the easy modern fit is a simply a holiday dream.

Casual Get-together, Outfit 1. RAILS, one of our favorite resources for amazingly soft plaid shirts has interpreted their iconic style into this best-selling tunic/dress silhouette. While shown as a dress through the ‘shop it’ button at Revolve Clothing (with free shipping & returns), it looks great over leggings and skinny jeans, too. Take a look here. And that’s how we’re showing it today, as it makes for a chic and stylishly relaxed look that is perfect for an easy holiday gathering at a restaurant or someone’s house. It comes in lots of color variations, like classic red and black, subtle dark grey, or casual navy and red. It’s selling out quickly everywhere though, thanks to it’s modern fit that is relaxed without being over-sized. And you will simply not find a softer fabric…so, so cozy. In the outfit we’re showing today, you can wear it with the fabric belt it comes with, with a slim leather belt, or without one altogether.

Fur and any richly textured jackets and sweaters are so stylish this season, and make for fashionable finishes to any casual look for the holidays. We are so, so in love with this Theory vest. Made of a shaggy and super soft fabric, it adds tons of wintery style to the plaid tunic featured in this outfit. It's definitely not too heavy for indoor use, but with the polished finishes of an outerwear piece (it's beautifully lined) you can run back & forth to the car, too. It’s easiest to wear open, with the featured tunic top belted underneath. This will give your waist some definition, while still keeping the outfit really relaxed looking. But you can also wear this vest closed, with the collar up, and add the belt over it instead (check out the last picture here) for a really chic look. Over a simple black tee or tank, with leggings and high boots, you have a sleek date night outfit, too. So you’ll get to wear it a lot, making it worth every penny - and at Theory's sale price, it's not as many as you may think.

AG Jeans - The Super Skinny Legging Ankle Jeans
These AG Jeans are such a cool update to basic black, coated jeans. They are definitely a reason to get a new pair. They have a slightly distressed, faded black color that is coated to look like the coolest pair of broken-in leather jeans – but, boy, are they comfortable (and much better priced than any leather jeans). The rise hits just below the belly button with a skinny contemporary fit. The seriously soft fabric has wonderful stretch, so you’ll be comfortable while you look so effortlessly chic. These jeans are the perfect finish to the plaid tunic in this outfit, and you’ll wear them with everything – sweaters, tees, blouses – all year round. For footwear options, we’re suggesting suede booties for this look, but you can wear black leather, distressed brown, or even white sneakers.

Joie’s heeled booties are perfect for nights out in the Winter when you want to step up your style game from a basic pair of boots. They have the same sexy feeling of pumps or strappy heels, but with much more seasonally appropriate foot coverage. The small cut-outs won’t let your feet freeze, and with the overall closed-up styling, you can even wear thin socks or tights if you want to – black is the obvious choice, but you can have some fun with patterns like lace, too. The suede looks great with the coated jeans in this outfit, and the slim ankle is easy to wear with the skinny styling of the jeans.

Casual Get-together, Outfit 2. Donna Karan taught a lady that revealing your shoulders is always a slimming look – and it’s a great way to add a little upscale style to an otherwise casual piece. It’s hard to find a top more ideal for a casual holiday get-together than this one. Rebecca Minkoff effortlessly infuses a very subtle metallic luster to a cozy intarsia pattern that is just so perfect. And done in a easy, contemporary fit, it’s simply effortless – polished and relaxed, all in one. What more could we ask for? It even comes in a chic black version, too. If your size is already sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, try Bloomingdale’s or Zappos (but the picture at Shopbop that we’re showing you does the proper justice to this sweater.)

The sweater featured in this outfit uses some sophisticated elements, like the open “cold shoulder” styling and touch of metallic sheen, for a casual top that is perfect for a casual holiday outing. These Jen7 skinny pants do the exact same thing, making them the ideal bottoms to go with it. They are styled like any great jeans, with their 5-pocket styling and skinny fit, but are made of a super soft Italian ponte fabric (which is basically a thicker, more substantial and far more posh material than your basic leggings – yet, just as comfortable and stretchy). These pants dress up and down with ease, and the saturated black is a rich backdrop for the sweater. Jen7 is 7 For All Mankind’s newer line designed for “a woman who still craves the same high quality [as 7 For All Mankind] but with a more enduring look and ease of fit that works with her…timeless elegance.” And that’s what we love about it. You get a bit of an easier fit, and style that you can wear with confidence – not too “look-at-me”, just “I-look-good”. They are cut to hit just above the ankle, but they look good full length, too. So if you are petite, you might not even need a hem.

The subtlety in the gunmetal base of these circular studs are just made for a casual night out. They add just the right amount of sparkle, without being overkill that works with the metallic luster of the featured sweater in this outfit. They are easy to wear with anything, from a basic casual sweater and leggings to a cocktail dress, using neutral Swarovski crystals so they’ll always match any of your gold, silver, or rosegold pieces.

Ballet flats are a go-to for many ladies, and these Tory Burch ones add an embellished bow that give these beautifully made flats a special little bling. And who can deny a little extra sparkle for the holidays? Sweet and posh, they’ll finish any outfit, including this one, with a lady-like appeal and lots of comfort - that elastic at the back conforms to your foot so they stay on without digging. If you really want to have some fun, the pewter metallic version will further play up the metallic sheen of the sweater. If you prefer heels, play with mixing patterns by pairing this outfit with Coach’s amazing red plaid pumps – the size of the plaid works really well to balance the pattern of the sweater (and they’ll pop any outfit all season long).

“Hometown” Visit, Outfit 1. This hooded fluffy coat from Free People just has that cozy feel that will get tons of use over the holidays, making it a perfect item to bring along when you are packing up for a few days of family fun. Free People’s relaxed fit and contemporary styling ensure you can wear this over all your simple tees, tanks, turtlenecks, and even a plaid or denim button down. The curved hem is longer in the back – it hits around the high hip in front and low hip in the back, so it doesn’t look bulky. You’ll still look slim and just so darn holiday chic. You can leave it open or use the hook-and-eye closures to close it up when you head over to someone’s house or catch a movie.

This tee is from one of our favorite brands for knits – Wilt. The quality is amazing, the modern fit is relaxed and flattering, and the soft, slubbed cotton fabric they use truly can’t be beat. They have a knack for finding ways to create interesting finishing for simple tees to ensure they won’t cling, but don’t look like you’re trying to conceal anything (if you know what we mean). And that’s what they’ve done here. The gently curved hem is longest in the back, perfectly complimenting the similar hem in the featured hoodie. Together, they create a layered look that comfortably covers your hips and behind, while still giving you stylish shape. And you can remove the jacket with confidence, as the front knot effortlessly hides those holiday cookies and eggnog you’ve been enjoying. Keep in mind that this model is almost 6’ tall and wearing a small – we’ve found it is longer on most ladies, so the shortest point (where the knot is) easily covers the top of your pants. If you want to add a little holiday color, this burgundy tee has a hi-lo hem that works well, too.

Paige Denim - Transcend Hoxton Ultra Skinny Jeans
Well, ladies, we’ve just found the perfect dark wash skinny. Seriously. Get these Paige jeans on and you’ll agree. This wash – the Mona– is amazing. It’s dark, a blue/black, and the stitching is darker than denim’s normal mustard yellow, which is a little more sophisticated, yet still provides the right contrast. The fabric is so stretchy, but not clingy – and all without being too thin. Brilliant. Paige is a contemporary brand, but these jeans run a little easier than some skinny jeans, so they are incredibly flattering…and even more comfortable. Since there is no real distressing - just the slightest lightening in the center of the leg to keep them from looking too serious - they can dress up or down, making them an easy choice for this outfit and ideal to pack if you’re going away for a few days. They are called a high-rise, but we found them to sit just at/below the belly button, so it’s not a “fashion” high –rise (just high enough to prevent muffin top/love handles)

Frye - Valerie Lace Up Booties
Finish off this outfit, and any casual outfit this Winter, with Frye’s upscale take on combat boots. They have all the practical elements covered – a sturdy lug sole and shearling lining for warmth – with all the style that make them just so cool. They have a broken-in feel and come up just high enough above the ankle so you can tuck your skinny jeans or leggings in. Because they are lace-ups, they hug your leg so they fit under pants with a wider hem, too. Frye’s high quality will hold up to endless wears, and this is a style that just looks better over time. Like the jeans in this outfit, we’re sending you to Shopbop where you get speedy shipping (if you have Amazon Prime, you can use it to get these even faster) and free returns. If you haven’t ordered anything from this site yet, you will be delighted with the service.

“Hometown” Visit, Outfit 2. Every lady should have this sweater in her closet, plain & simple. You’ll throw it on with leggings (like we’re showing you today) or your jeans – it’s ideal for lounging around with friends & family because it has an easy, polished elegance but is seriously as comfortable as your/your husband’s perfectly broken-in old college sweatshirt. The modern fit is easy, hanging loosely in the body, with off-center slits in the hem (front & back) and thumbholes in the sleeves for cool style. The cotton is thick and the black color is rich & saturated. The turtleneck itself is high and cozy – not tight.

Ladies, we know many of you wear your leggings all the time (and so do we). Instead of buying tons of inexpensive one that are thin or need to be replaced often, invest in this durable, substantial pair from Three Dots. The fabric is thick and stretchy. Really, they are more than leggings. They have the comfort and versatility of leggings with a thicker ponte fabric that gives you the coverage of true pants. There is NO question about whether these will be see-thru, and that also helps to smooth out any lumps or bumps some leggings can inadvertently highlight. The raised seams and panels also step them up from a simple pair of leggings. They’re not super skinny, either, so they are seriously comfortable through the hip and crotch area. Worth the price to up your leggings game, these will give you all the coverage and confidence you desire, with all the comfort you deserve. These are available in XS-XL, so if your size is sold out through the 'shop it' button, try Three Dots own website. While the shipping won't be quite as fast as Shopbop, it is also free.

Add this scarf/cape for holiday flare that you can wear all Winter long. You can’t beat the versatility, especially if you’re packing up for a few days to visit family. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see how it can be worn as a scarf, just as easily as a cape (shown). Once you wrap it around your neck, you can just use an armhole to slip the fabric through for an effortlessly chic scarf style – no fiddling around with how to wrap it to look good. And both ways add such a nice holiday pop to this easy, all-black outfit. Around the house, you’ll love wrapping this soft cape around you, whether you are wearing a sweater, a tee, or your pj’s. When it’s time to head out, the transition to a scarf is effortless.

If you have a pair of rubber Hunter boots for the rain, you know how practical and comfortable they are. So for Winter, we couldn’t have been more excited to see Hunter reinterpret them in leather with a super warm and so soft shearling lining. The lugged rubber sole ensures you’ll have good traction, and that rubber actually comes up to form a lip around the bottom of the shoe to help keep your feet dry – it adds great style, too. They easily pull on with a socks and leggings or skinny jeans. We’ve seen this to be true for ladies with varying calf sizes, since they don’t come up too high on the leg.

In a huge size range that accommodates Petites and Misses, you may just want to get a pair for everyone in the family. The soft flannel and easy waistband on the pants will have you snuggling down with a big smile on your face.
