Are you “red”-y for the holidays? This week we have a dress and a blazer that will have you looking and feeling festive throughout the season. For your younger kids, a fun kit to write a letter to Santa…and get one in return. For teen daughters, celestial studs that just might get you cool points. And to round out our top picks, combat the cooling temps with these super cozy shearling slippers and a lip treatment that nourishes dry, chapped lips.
Meaghan: It’s officially “The Season for Giving” and yes, I know that for many of you this means “The Season for Guessing Which Gift Will Make My Adolescent Daughter NOT Role Her Eyes at Me on Christmas” and you know what? I don’t envy you. But, I do have a suggestion: these 14k freshwater cultured pearl crescent moon studs are on-trend but classic and perfectly sized for everyday wear. I suggest them in rose gold, but we also have them in white or yellow gold (or platinum, if that’s her thing). (Available at Alx&Co., $265)
Elizabeth: If anyone reading this needs a gift for me and doesn’t know what to buy, you can always buy me slippers. I wear them if I am in my house and I pack them when I am traveling even just for a night. I like to have all different types as well. I love these slides from Vince. I mean cashmere with shearling lining, yes, please, under my tree! Also available in navy blue. (Available at The Shoe Hive, $98)
Celeste: Looks we love! Be the Lady in Red this holiday season and beyond. This simple and elegant dress by Draper James exudes sex appeal, not just because of the color but the flirty flutter at the hem and sleeves. Strike the pose! (Available at Kiskadee, $138)
Ali: Are you searching for the perfect holiday staple to pull out of your closet every year? The red duchess blazer by Smythe just arrived and it’s ready to shine bright through the holidays! One of our most popular blazers, not only is it impeccably tailored and lined, it also has beautiful peak lapels and an asymmetrical back. It is an investment piece that you can wear every December. (Available at TSALT, $695)
Angela: LIPSMART Hydrating Solution delivers intense moisture to soften and nourish dry, cracked lips. Formulated with ingredients that help condition lips to look healthier, the solution’s dual action helps boost hydration and retain moisture. You won’t want to be without this…I keep it in my coat pocket! (Available at Bellacara, $30)
