RW&CO has always been one of my go-to destinations for accessible holiday style. The holidays are all about celebrating with your loved ones, and that there seems to be a lot of stress to how one should be dressed for different functions. Typically the different functions that one attends are work parties, cocktail/dinner parties and family gatherings. 

So here I styled three must-have holiday looks from RW&CO, that will have everyone’s head turning.

Look 1: Work Parties

The idea for these two looks was to create a business casual outfit with a festive twist.

On Morgan we have a sparkly jacquard suit matched with a basic black camisole, a patent clutch and a sleek tuxedo style sandal. What I love about this look is that even though everyone else is probably going to be in a suit or a shift dress, this look will fit right in but also make a statement.

Ammar is wearing a tan merino wool sweater, a burgundy gingham dress shirt, tweed trousers, a beautiful scarf from the Hayden Christensen for RW&CO collection, and Cole Haan Monkstrap shoes. The look is dapper yet comfortable!

Look 2: Cocktail Glamour

Christmas cocktail parties are a great way to unwind and meet some new friends or socialize with some old ones. Regardless, you want to shine, be comfortable and have fun all at the same time.

Morgan is wearing a fun fit and flair dress, which I accessorized with a belt, bracelet and the fun ankle-strap pumps.

Ammar is wearing the infamous Hayden RW&CO suspender pants, and a Hayden RW&CO shirt, with the Cole Haan monk-strap shoes.

And lastly….

Look 3: The Cozy Family Gathering

What inspired look three was the feeling of being able to be relaxed, comfortable and warm. There’s nothing like the feeling of being with your family and friends in warm and cozy clothes while unwrapping your gifts.

Ammar is wearing; Hayden for RW&CO lined navy cardigan, Lucas fit pants and a jacquard print casual shirt, with Cole Haan suede wingtip lace-ups.

Morgan is wearing; sparkly grey legging trousers, a light blue camisole underneath a sparkly light blue ribbed cardigan. I accessorized the look with a belt worn over the cardigan to add shape, the ruffled scarf, knit gloves, toque and reptile embossed flats.
