After a good solid, in your face mounting ad campaign that ritualistically, starts right after we finish our turkey dinners every year, the holiday season is now, officially underway. As the addiction of documenting every moment of our lives continues to rise, this proves at it’s height with the holidays. Perfectly lit up trees filled with presents haunt every Instagram snap you skim by, and boxes wrapped delicately to perfection using only newspaper and twine scream at your from your Pinterest page. This is the time of not only giving and receiving, but showing. The number of holiday party invites you got, and love boasting you’re too tired to attend, a decorated home, your brightly lit tree; all the things we’re proud of, and all the things we strive to imitate. But beyond perfectly styled pictures and ideals lies one aspect of the holidays that though stressful for some, remains effortless and easy for only the most knowledgable of holiday-istas. That is the reign of the holiday party season. We all have them, whether it be a cocktail party hosted by that fabulous girl you know through that other girl you know, a comfy family gathering or the office party you are hoping you don’t get too drunk at. Some of us spend the whole season flitting about the city from venue to venue, trying not to admit to any cold, and some remain happy in the warmth of a spirited, and festive apartment.

I used to be the former, and now I’m definitely more of the latter. But no matter what category you fall into this 2013 holiday season, one thing  you can definitely cross off the list of this month’s long to-do’s is buy outfit for holiday party. With Sears Style, something as simple as a pair of printed jeans, or tuxedo leggings, mixed with the contents of your closet, makes it easy to get a look that can fit any holiday event.

Below, 4 easy ways to get the look for your holiday party featuring some fun, affordable holiday denim I picked up at Sears online. By using my Shop your Way rewards card, I not only earned points towards my next purchase, but I also redeemed previous ones which lessened my total cost, making it not only a new and exciting purchase, but also those magical words, a deal. For $50 I scored two pairs, a pair of skinny blue camo jeans, a little youngish for me, but funky nonetheless, and a sweet pair of dark jeggings/leggings with tuxedo strip down the side that I’d been coveting all season. Dressed both up, and down, both represent fun, fashionable looks that would do any holiday party proud.

Although I can still dress up with the best of them, and never miss a chance to get glam for a winter showing of the Nutcracker (Where in my mind, boyfriends love to attend this), these days my tendencies lean less towards dressy, and more towards comfy and stylish. With so many denim options these days, including every shape you can imagine in every type of cargo, khaki, leather and legging, there is more reason then ever to thrust denim into the spotlight for the holidays, and in this case, skip saying yes to the dress.


#shop #cbias #thisisstyle Bongo camo skinny jeans are made casual yet stylish with a striped leather top and flats, while heels and a sparkly sweater glam them up. Shop the look here #shop KK jeggings w/ a tuxedo stripe still manage to look chic when paired w/ a comfy cardigan sweater, and a touch of sparkle. Change up the look for a fancier feel by throwing a party dress over them instead! Shop here

  • I’m totally with ya–dressing up for the Nutcracker is a must! (and I did get a boyfriend to go with me…..once…..) but jeans are great for nearly everything else! (especially here in Texas where everything is uber casual!) #client
