The idea to create a winter lookbook came to me out of the blue as I was gathering pieces for a shoot and realized it would be so fun to put together a compilation of different looks to give you inspirations for what to wear this holiday season. I ended up dedicating a whole day to shooting these outfits, so here we are, with six different looks that range from glitz and glam to casual and cozy. Whether you have a family gathering or a work party or even a winter wedding, I hope these looks will inspire you and help you find the perfect outfit! ♡

This modern chic dress looks like a two-piece, featuring a peplum top and fitted midi skirt with a beautiful textured fabric that is comfortable and ultra flattering, hugging the body just beautifully to give an undoubtedly sophisticated appeal. I adore everything about this piece from the cross-over bodice to the cap sleeves to the classic midi length — the elegant construction of this dress makes it truly perfect for any occasion or setting. It’ll be great as part of your work wardrobe and certainly for any professional meeting or event, but for a holiday soirée, I played up with accessories to give this dress a festive, sparkly touch. A pair of glittery heels and statement dangle earrings really made this outfit pop, and a lovely nude-toned handbag finished off the look.

A comfortable and easy-to-wear romper can be such a life-and-time-saver, eliminating the stress of assembling an outfit. This next-level romper has a dressy vibe to it and is a fun alternative to the classic LBD. It’s made with a high-shine black crinkle fabric with a metallic shift and features spaghetti straps, a cross-over V-neck, and an elasticized waistline. Its simplicity allows for it to be styled in various ways and I wanted to elevate the classiness of this romper by wearing it with luxurious gold jewelry pieces that consisted of matching Mother of Pearl earrings and necklace, gold rhinestone ankle strap heels, completed with a pretty baby pink coat for the ultimate statement-making finish.

There is no better time to wear a metallic midi skirt than the holidays and this one that I wore here has a gorgeous shimmering silver hue with accordion pleats for a breezy and feminine silhouette. The pleated construction is truly perfection, while the elastic waist is figure-friendly and the midi length rounds out the elegant design. This skirt pairs beautifully with any black top — I opted for a sleeveless mock neck crop top and black ankle strap heels to accompany this metallic skirt, completed with silver jewelry pieces that added the final touch for a blend of glamour and sophistication.

You can’t go wrong with plaid pieces for winter and this coat immediately caught my eye when I saw it — the red and black color combo is beautiful! It’s lightweight, cozy, and stylish with a relaxed appeal that’ll complement a casual look nicely. In this case, I went for a dressier look and wore a burgundy mock neck peplum dress underneath the coat with black pointy heels, gold stud earrings, and gold layered necklaces for a super feminine vibe.

When in doubt, wear a little black dress because it’s timeless and always flattering. My LBD collection is growing steadily and I was so excited to wear this mini piece because of the adorable polka dot mesh pattern! I’m obsessed with polka dots and I loved the femininity and elegance of this dress. It features sheer long sleeves with elasticized cuffs, a sheer back, and a ruffle hem — the details add a fun and flirty touch to this piece that makes it ultra girly. I styled this dress with a pair of black ankle strap heels, an oversized light blue coat for a pop of color, silver dangly earrings, and a silver lariat necklace.
