It’s typical to focus on what you’ll be wearing to holiday parties and family get-togethers, but what about right now as you get your shopping done? A great coat or jacket in festive colors and patterns is what you need while out and about. Add some comfy boots and really simple pieces underneath--a stretchy legging or jean and easy top. And then there's shopping-from-home. I have some thoughts for looking great for that, too!
#1 Shopping in the Suburbs: Greenwich Avenue and Westport’s or New Canaan’s main streets offer great gift-shopping all in one stop. Choose a jacket or scarf in plaid, skinny jeans and black boots.
#2 Shopping in NYC: Up the sophistication level, but keep the comfort. Low-heeled boots and a longer coat will keep you happily in the holiday mood whether at one of the famous departments stores or downtown in smaller shops. Layer a lightweight puffer vest under a patterned cloth coat for extra warmth.
#3 Shopping from home: What to wear for ordering those Amazon Prime gifts? :) —you can still look chic while shopping from your kitchen counter. Does anyone else love matching PJs as much as I do?
