It’s the most wonderful time of the year, girls! Winter is finally here and we couldn’t be happier. The christmas trees are out, the lights are up and, cookies, cakes and many other holiday treats are on full display.
While the treats that come with the festive season are great, holiday shopping is a nightmare and, is almost always stressful. You’ll find yourself constantly rummaging through your wardrobe, while you quietly sob because you have absolutely nothing to wear (maybe a gingerbread cookie can calm you down?).
Fear not, my friend. I've done the work for you and in doing so, have saved you hours of planning and shopping by piecing together a number of effortlessly chic festive looks. Hopefully, this holiday fashion edit will save you from looking like a major fashion faux pas!
