Holiday Style: The Best Way To Wear Jeans To ALL the Parties


Despite the decidedly glam bent holiday trends are taking, I’m still a big (HUGE) fan of denim.  And with all of the glitzy accoutrements available for the chic party-goer, denim is the perfect foil for those of us who like their style with a heavy dose of insouciance.  (C’est moi.)

So I’ve been messing around, trying to figure out a fresh (and perhaps even exciting? Can we hope?) way to wear denim this holiday season.

Well.  I think I found it.

I mean seriously:  what could be easier?  If you break it down, the formula is simply Cozy Sweater + Comfy Jeans + Statement Shoes + Chandelier Earrings

It’s the perfect combination of cozy and glam. (And I’m especially loving the chandelier earrings – they feel so unexpected and fresh, right?)

So given that inspiration, here’s the two different ways I’m interpreting this trend (hint:  I’m warming it up – I have an idea for snow-covered streets, as well as some recommendations for big earrings that will still be safe from grabby little hands).

Glitter Pumps + Destroyed Denim + Lots of Cuff

This is my fav.   The simple sweater is a perfect backdrop for stunning earrings, and the button-down shirt adds a polished element to the outfit and offsets the crazy distressing.  (I love big cuffs peeking out from under a sweater – it almost feels like bracelets.)

But S, you say,  I’m always cold!!  There’s no way I’ll be sporting glitter pumps again until June!

I hear ya.  And so I offer up option two….

I’m loving big, glitzy baubles, but ear cuffs, ear jackets and even – YES – clip on earrings will allow Mamas to rock this trend without worrying about grabby little hands.
