Have a Fabulous Holiday – for Less!

lana

The holidays are upon us again, and you may be getting frazzled. What with finals (for us college students), gift shopping, holiday parties, and a to-do list about a mile long, how can we even stop to think about what to wear?! This is possibly the most important question of all, though, as we need to look our best for this magical time of the year. Here are some festive outfit ideas perfect for any event you may be faced with during this most wonderful of seasons.

Dinner with the family:

Having to strike the chord between conservative and dressy is often hard to do if you still want to maintain your personal style. But this little outfit (created with the H&M dressing room) has just the right amount of good girl mixed with chic.
