Eclectically feminine style by Mary Gui

Edgy Christmas Outfit with H&M x Kenzo

Only 4 more days until Christmas! In the spirit of my rather eclectic style, I wanted to share a Christmas outfit that’s not your average cozy sweater and jeans. I love this look because there is a hint of edginess to it with the dramatic sleeves and mesh skirt, and yet it fits in so well against the bright red Christmas backdrop. This top from the H&M x Kenzo collection is definitely one of those pieces that makes you stop and stare. I was so surprised to find it still available at H&M a few weeks after the Kenzo collection launched, so of course I had to snatch it up. I really love the fun print and flared sleeves, as well as the padded texture that gives the piece extra warmth. Since it’s Winter, I layered the top over a black turtleneck.

I knew I wanted to pair the top with something just as eclectic, so I chose a mesh light blue skirt to contrast with the texture and print of the top. The A-line shape of the skirt also works to balance out the flared sleeves; when it comes to pulling off dramatic silhouettes, it’s all about finding the right proportions. To add a classic touch to this super trendy look, I added a small vintage handbag and black ankle boots. Lastly, for an extra pop of edginess, I chose an Anne Klein black leather watch and matching layered bangles. The watch and bangles come as one set and also make a great last minute gift idea, which you can see more of in this post.

My Christmas Outfit Essentials

Asides from a cool top and trendy skirt, my Christmas Day outfit essentials also include Sole Patches, which is padding for the ball or heel of your feet. These boots may look comfy, but after walking around the city in them for a few hours, they definitely start to hurt, especially at the ball of my feet. You can apply Sole Patches directly on your feet or onto your shoes for a more permanent solution. I like to put them on the inside of my shoes at the ball of feet area to provide a soft cushion and lessen the impact on my poor feet. Since I’m almost always wearing heels and walking around the city, these Sole Patches have been such a lifesaver! My other essentials include a dark plum lipstick and my Gigi NY monogrammed wallet. This wallet is the perfect size for slipping into a small clutch for holiday festivities.
