We’ve fully surrendered to a wardrobe of sweats and pjs, so we decided to finish 2020 strong with this Festive Outfit Challenge. The goal is to create two party looks based on workout or sleepwear—we’re not giving up on comfort now! As usual, we shopped our closets to come up with these snazzy ensembles, but oh how nice it will be to buy something new (and wear it out) in 2021.
Check out our looks, below. We had a good time coming up with them. If you’d like to join in the fun, share your own stretchy-chic combos with us @stylechallengers. Whatever you wear, we wish you a safe and comfy holiday!
We’re spending the holidays in Chicago, in our apartment, and with just with our kids, but we had fun dressing up for Thanksgiving and we’ll do it again for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. To keep the vibe comfy, I dove into my pj drawer and pulled out the lone remaining piece from a line of washable silk Gap pjs that were the bomb (of course, this was like a decade ago!). A tinge expensive for Gap, but cheap for real silk. My fave piece was this short kimono that I rarely wear, but I’ve always loved. Kinda works as a smoking jacket and matches my sparkling rosé!
Left: Theory velvet pants, Cuyana silk shirt, Gap kimono jacket, AGL oxford (similar style at Church’s) and Jane Berg mega hoops. Right: Parker silk camo blouse (similar style at Equipment), Kobi Halperin sleeveless sweater, Spanx faux leather leggings, Rag & Bone Rover ankle boots, and Rebekah Price crystal necklace.
I confess—I’m spending the winter in Bonita Springs, Florida where the weather is simply delightful. I based my festive outfits around pieces from two of my new favorite pastimes, golf and swimming (okay, hot tubbing). While my social calendar is limited to intimate family gatherings, I could wear the outfit on the left to any holiday open house and the outfit on the right would be perfect for clubbing on New Years Eve. Of course both are appropriate for celebrating right at home. Details of what I’m wearing, below.
