The ornament swap is just about the most classic and time-honored party tradition of the holiday season. We’ve all got fond memories of our parents’ Christmas parties, and maybe even have an ornament or two on our trees that has been passed down from one of those parties.
With generous portions of savory snacks and desserts certainly on the menu, it’s important to to be comfortable (and account for a little stretch in our clothes!) but also feel special with a little extra holiday sparkle. Just because it’s December doesn’t mean you have to wear a bulky snowman sweater with fuzzy pom-poms–thank goodness!
Our stylist Katey Preston has picked out some great pieces to mix and match that say “season’s greetings” without the kitsch.
Love this blush velvet jacket paired with skinny jeans and a fun sparkle or embellished top underneath. Pair the outfit with some pumps instead of booties and you are holiday ready!

This scarf is gorgeous. There is just enough metallic to make it holiday appropriate, but a small enough amount that you can wear the scarf over and over again all winter long. The ivory and camel are gorgeous paired with an ivory blouse and dark denim for a winter white holiday look.
