Whether you are running errands or singing Christmas carols, this ensemble will never leave you hanging. Styling some jeans with a festive sweater or blouse will make you feel put together while also remaining functional and comfortable. If you have a longer sweater, fleece-lined leggings are also a comfy and warm option.
Here are some great places to find some festive sweaters:
- I also recommend checking out your favorite local thrift store! I have found many treasured holiday items while thrifting.
This look is great for an office party, church, or date night! Pairing a midi skirt or dress pants with a sweater or blouse is easier than it seems. Here’s a trick–pick one neutral and one color. You can wear flats, booties, or heels! It’s very versatile. I have personally worn this variation multiple times and it’s never let me down!

Ok, think sequins. That’s a really easy way to dress up any outfit. Pants, a sequin top, and a blazer are a power outfit as well as a great option for a formal event. Try any form of sequins: skirt, top, or even a whole dress full of sequins! Most clothing that incorporates sequins into their designs these days is very comfortable. This dress I’m wearing below is very comfy! But if you’re not a fan of sequins, wearing any shiny dress that has embellishments, or even a solid color, will make you look dressed up!

I want to leave you all with this: if you are stressed out by all of the holiday magic that you are in charge of this year, you don’t have to dress up or buy anything new.

I wish you all a Merry Everything and a Happy Always!
