  2. Accessories are everything! A change in necklace, earrings and shoes can give you an entirely different look!
  3. Go monochrome or mix-and-match! Choose an all-black or bronze metallic monochrome look, or don’t be afraid to mix things up.
  4. Don’t forget to layer! Cooler temperatures means more layers. Layer separate pieces together to keep you looking chic and warm throughout the holidays. 
  5. Versatility is key! Investing in CAxLZ Classic pieces means you’ll look great for the Holidays, New Year and beyond!

As always, we want you to feel chic and confident while also feeling comfortable. Read our general CAxLZ style guide for a few extra tips on wearing these styles year round!

Bundled Up for the Holidays

With the weather getting colder, stay comfy and cozy while still looking chic! All it takes is a little extra layering. With the Holidays comes long days filled with parties and sometimes your outfit needs to last 10+ hours a day. If you are in a holiday outfit for that long, make sure it’s comfy! Start with soft and stretch separates then layer on from there to stay warm when you’re running from one party to the next. 

The beauty of the CAxLZ separates is the slinky soft fabric, so ditch the stiff denim and wear a festive boot leg pant. After you have your outfit base, start the layering!

Start with statement outerwear, and lucky for you, the CAxLZ Bianca cardigan is a fan favorite! We have four different styles: black, bronze metallic, leopard print, and snakeskin, so choose your favorite! Next, definitely go for a close toed shoe like a boot, pump, flat, or sneaker depending on the occasion. Now you have a full look and can further layer based on the weather! Super cold? Add a scarf, beanie, and even another coat! Just a slight breeze? Stick with the cardigan and bring a scarf just in case! When it comes to jewelry, you can be as flashy or as understated as you want. Just take note of what the appropriate attire for the party is!

There’s something about putting on a leopard print cardigan that can make a woman feel powerful, invincible, and sexy.

Holiday Shopping

When running errands or Holiday shopping around town, you want to be comfy while still looking put together. Dress down your look with a pair of sneakers and basic tank, or look a little extra chic with a monochrome look. You’ll feel comfortable and look like you took a lot of time to get ready for that wine refill! 

Take the CAxLZ separates for a quick errand run, or for a full day of Holiday shopping! 

The CAxLZ Christine pant with a matching bronze metallic Bianca cardigan is the perfect look to wear with a simple white tank and white sneakers for a cozy, casual holiday outfit that still looks put together. Or, if you’re feeling a little more sassy for a day of shopping and dinner, go with the CAxLZ Debbie joggers which are silky soft, but can be dressed up with a monochrome look. Add on the Milena black tank and then the star of the show, the Doris mesh cardigan. This look is still cozy, but elevated. You can even take these looks to the couch for some online Holiday shopping.

Holiday Dinner with Friends

‘Tis the season of indulgence with yummy dinners, and even yummier after dinner pie. Planning and executing a Holiday dinner outfit can be stressful. Go chic for your pre-Holiday celebration with your besties, while still having that extra wiggle room to eat that extra slice of pie! Dinner with your friends is also the perfect opportunity to try out new fashion trends. Show up in a bold holiday outfit your friends won’t be able to stop talking about! 

Go for unique styling options!

This simple styling tip makes a subtle statement, and adds a little something extra to an outfit. Also, it helps to tailor the piece to your body so instead of letting the fabric hang by your sides, it will instead accentuate your natural curves. To really up the look, go full monochrome in bronze metallic with the CAxLZ Christine pant, Milena tank, and Bianca cardigan. Another option is to pick a long sleeve top with some added detail. Try the CAxLZ Tracey top that features a tie front neckline that can be worn tied up, or untied. Also made with our stunning CAxLZ signature bronze metallic fabric, this top is chic, sophisticated and you guessed it...comfortable.
