I’ll admit, I’ve never been much of a fan of dressing up. I don’t consider myself fancy (I’d rather live in workout apparel) and feel a little too awkward in anything related to gowns. While I’m always intrigued by sparkles and sequins, they’ve never been enough of a lure to truly go down that rabbit hole. But – perhaps I’ve found the perfect piece at JCPenney to style up for people like me who like to keep it easy, chic and modern…
An Easy Holiday Outfit Featuring The Comfiest Vegan Leather Pants
Vegan leather pants, now that’s something I’ve jumped wholeheartedly into, and I think it’s going to be my favorite item to grab when I want to elevate my outfits for the holiday season. Dress them up with heels, or keep it casual for celebrations at home with the family…I personally think these vegan pants can do it all!
The reason this holiday outfit idea is so good is because: pants. I’m officially running after a toddler this holiday season and short little dresses (or long flowy ones) are the furthest from my mind. These pants wipe off easily, can be machine washed, and are comfortable.
I’ve tried on quite a number of vegan leather pants in the past few months, but these Stylus Vegan Leather High-Rise Joggers are some of the comfiest (hello, drawstring band). If you don’t currently own a pair and want to try the style out, I definitely recommend this one from JCPenney for their no-fuss jogger style (plus they’re under $30, which makes me think I need the green pair, too!). You can think of them just as any other joggers in your wardrobe, but you know, with a little something extra.
Fit Notes: I recommend sizing down one, as the drawstring waist is plenty room…but that could also come in handy during Thanksgiving seconds (or thirds).
JCPenney has everything you need for all the upcoming celebrations. You can dress the whole fambam and grab some pretty little holiday gifts while you’re at it.
I’m obsessed with my Made In Italy Silver Twist Chain Necklace. It’s incredibly dainty, sparkly and pretty in real life and available in five different lengths (I’m wearing the 16”). You can personalize it to the outfit you’re planning or grab a couple for layering, which would be amazing. It would also be the sweetest stocking stuffer surprise!
Just Right: Casual-Chic Sock Booties
It’s not every day I purchase shoes other than sneakers, but the sock-bootie style has been grabbing my attention. It’s been about a decade since I regularly wore heels (when I worked a professional office job,) but they’ve been calling to me more than usual these days.
I scooped up the Mia Girl Marcella Booties and swooned over them the first time I took them for a spin! The rise of the bootie perfectly meets the jogger on my frame, but if my legs weren’t as long or I lived in a warmer climate, I would grab the a.n.a. Mules for this outfit.
Fit Notes: I’m wearing my true size 9 ½ and they’re perfect! Not to mention comfortable and easy to walk in, plus they slip on + off effortlessly.
This V-Neck Sweater: Classy, Chic AND Cozy
The simplest and most chic way I love to style the joggers is with a cozy sweater. The a.n.a. V Neck Sweater is beautifully soft and extra-long (available in petite, too). It comes in over ten colors (!) and would also be great for over leggings.
Fit Notes: I’m wearing a medium and it’s very stretchy. Stay true to size or consider sizing down one!
A Beanie Tops It All Off
Leave it to this Michigan girl to style a holiday outfit with a beanie, but what can I say — I like to be warm. This Mixit Removable Pom Beanie is SO CUTE because it’s exactly as the name suggests: it has a removable pom that you can switch out to create more of a unique look (poms are just two bucks, and there is a pastel one that is so good). Another item that would be perfect to gift, include in a gift exchange, or simply rock all season yourself.
