Holiday Outfit Ideas

Looking for the perfect look for that upcoming holiday event?  Around the holidays, sometimes the last person you think to spend money on is yourself.  At Le Thrift, you can find glamorous pieces for the holidays that won't break the bank.  We've got you covered for every holiday occasion...

The Glitzy Holiday Party- We love this little black dress that has just a touch of bling.  The beaded neckline saves you money because you don't need to buy a necklace!  Add some great leather pumps, and a pop of red jewelry and you're sure to be the center of attention in this classic holiday look.

Meeting the Parents-  Ladies, we all dread meeting the boyfriend's parents!  You stand in front of your closet for hours trying to find something appropriate, that also fits your personality!  Try a pastel colored sweater, with a tailored pair of trousers.  Accompany this look with a great vintage bag, and a pair of shoes that show off your personality.  We LOVE these leopard pumps that are both sophisticated and fun, without being too wild!

Shopping for Gifts with Girlfriends- One of our favorite December pastimes is shopping for gifts!  While shopping, you want to be both comfortable and trendy.  Try a light (not too bulky!) sweater, like this collared Tory Burch piece.  Add a pair of skinny jeans and flat boots.  Don't forget a wristlet- you don't want to carry a heavy shoulder bag in addition to shopping bags!

Tea at the Four Seasons-  Invited to a sophisticated event, such as the Afternoon Tea at the Four Seasons?  You don't have to spend a fortune on designer duds to fit in with the elite.  This Blumarine suit is perfect for the holidays, trimmed in a red, white, and green plaid.  Paired with a stunning Versace necklace, and Chanel pumps, everyone will think you dropped thousands of dollars on Michigan Ave.  Your bargains can be our little secret!
