easy holiday outfit, burgundy velvet bodysuit with black midi skirt and moto jacket, statement necklace

Hello Friends! Happy Wednesday! I wanted to give you a quick and easy outfit idea for Christmas Dinner or New Year’s Eve! It’s one that I put together in a flash, literally! I didn’t have time to think before this shoot and just grabbed these items! And even more fun, it involves a piece FROM GRANDMA WITH LOVE.

I’ve shared my secret for getting dressed in a snap when I’m running late for work – wearing all black as seen here! When in doubt or a rush, I reach for this color as it is slimming and easy. The trick to this particular outfit was pairing a black moto jacket + black velvet midi skirt with a gorgeous burgundy crushed velvet bodysuit. The burgundy color adds a festive touch!

BTW, it’s Tarjay which means it was $20! I also purchased it in black. The statement necklace was perfect to add extra sparkle and shine for the holidays! (BTW, it’s on sale for 50% off right now with code ENDOFYEAR50 !)

THE STYLE Rx: Black is an easy foundation color to build upon! For the holidays, add some pizazz with a velvet or metallic piece. Don’t forget to sparkle with a blingy necklace or earrings!

I am also wearing statement earrings and a graphic clutch which contradict my rule of one statement piece at a time. But I thought, “What the heck! It’s the holidays!”

Hope your week is going well! Finally, I have all the presents and just need to wrap them now! It’s one of my favorite things to do! :) Although waiting until the last minutes seems to make it a little less enjoyable and more like a task. I’m prepping the house for lots of family and guests! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and have a blessed Holiday!

    Love the velvet on velvet Sam! The bodysuit and skirt pair so perfectly together and the red is really nice with all the black. I definitely think the festive season is the best time to bring out all the sparkle so the statement necklace and clutch work nicely together. :)

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas :) Would be so exciting having your first one with your two children! :)
