Leyah Long-Sleeve Wool Dress
Diane von Furstenberg
Sold by: Neiman Marcus

Fit Guide
You can see how amazing this flattering DVF sweater dress looks with opaque black tights and booties, a cozy and comfy look for any casual dinner or holiday party. Made of a seriously soft and not too heavy wool, the banded waist subtly flares out to a swingy skirt, making this dress so much more forgiving and shapely than most sweater dresses. Sure, the red makes it perfect for the holiday season (and Valentine’s Day), but this shade is flattering to most skin tones and will get plenty of use all Winter long. It comes in DVF’s contemporary fit, 0-14, and it’s selling out quickly at the great sale price through the 'shop it' button. If your size is not available there, try Shopbop where you can see how great this dress looks with high boots, too.

The Casual Holiday Get-together: Ladies’ Festive Dressing Series, Part 3 (of 3)

While your mind might be on Thanksgiving in just a couple of days, it’s also the perfect time to talk about casual holiday get-togethers. Thanksgiving really kicks off time spent with family and friends, and this week, that’s what we’re wrapping up our Holiday Festive Dressing Series with – outfits for those relaxed gatherings. It’s all about the company – and the food and drinks…and ok, maybe presents, too.

So, what kind of casual get-togethers are we talking about? We’re outlining them below – and we’re guessing you may be participating in both. Once you’ve checked them out here, this week’s Fashion Finds, “4 Casual Holiday Get-together Outfits: Cozy Looks for the Ladies” provides 2 cozy outfit ideas for each. If your style is more timeless or has a modern twist, we’ll have you looking casually festive for the fun times ahead.

If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media. Most importantly, we want to wish all of our friends a wonderful Thanksgiving.
J.Crew - Relaxed Fleece Turtleneck with Cashmere Trim
Hometown Visit. Coming together as a “family”, at your house or someone else’s is the finishing line of the holiday season (excluding New Years Eve, of course, and we’ll get to that in a couple of weeks). It’s all about quality time sitting around together, eating, and drinking…and eating…and drinking. It’s the perfect time to break out your favorite cozy sweaters, soft tees, plaid shirts, and comfortable jeans and leggings. Oh, and let’s not forget your PJ’s. This J.Crew sweater is an idyllic hybrid of holiday ease. The body is a cozy tweedy-lloking wool, but the inside feels like the softest broken-in fleece sweatshirt. It's not lined in fleece, it's just the way the wool is backed, so it's doesn't add bulk to the easy, loose fit. The cuffs and turtleneck are equally soft, made of luxurious 100% cashmere. It’s a real beauty that you can wear around the house with sweats or leggings (or pj bottoms), but you can also throw on jeans or even nicer pants if you are heading out to dinner or someone’s house. In XXXS-XL, J.Crew’s modern fit gives you plenty of room to indulge in holiday snacks, and still look polished. If you are between sizes, you can size down and still have a relaxed fit. (If you prefer a cardigan, this one will serve all the same needs.) SEE 2 OUTFIT IDEAS IN THIS WEEK’S FASHION FINDS.

Casual Get-together. Whether you’re going to a cookie swap, a tree trimming party, a restaurant for an annual dinner with friends and family, or all 3, ‘tis the season for finding reasons to drink wine and eggnog with our friends and loved ones. And these relaxed times call for casual attire that’s festive, too. Plaids and wintery patterns, reds of every shade, and deep jewel tones are must-haves all season long. Texture like feathers, fur, and leather finishes add a little stylish whimsy, too. So, if you don’t have something that fits the bill yet, feel confident that you will be able to wear any of these Holiday-friendly picks all Winter long – they all look great with knee high boots or ankle length booties – must have’s to combat the snow and slush. This Laundry by Shelli Segal sweater dress is just so fun…and looks great with black tights and those boots and booties we mentioned. The use of color in the brocade pattern just brings a smile to your face, and the sweater material is a great midweight, made mostly of cotton with some nice give, so you’ll still be comfortable if the restaurant or party room gets warm. The colorblocking, v-neckline, and a-line shape that perfectly flares at the hip is the trifecta of flattering details. SEE 2 OUTFIT IDEAS IN THIS WEEK’S FASHION FINDS.
