(Original post from The Every Girl):
Holiday parties and events are the perfect excuse to wear sparkly accents, rich jewel tones, and bold silhouettes. The problem? A lot of the time, we only wear these unique pieces ONCE — for just a single holiday soiree. That’s why we’re firm believers in a holiday capsule — a collection of pieces you’ll wear again and again, for many seasons to come (think: a spicy new jacket and a pair of pom pom flats…). You can mix and match each piece with items you already own, making for a super festive (yet super unique) take on your own closet.
Check out all 24 of our holiday capsule classics, then tell us how you’ll make each one your own!

Our Favorite Ways to Wear It
There are SO many different ways to wear each of these fun pieces (on their own or mixed together!), but we’ve put together a few of our favorite outfit combos for our favorite time of year.
Take festivity to the office by adding a few simple details to your already-chic workwear staples — faux leather leggings are a classic alternative to your basic black pants, pom pom embellishments make the most of comfy flats, and fringe detail takes a cozy sweater from day to night.
Statement flats can be worn as part of a fun ensemble, or they can be the boldest part of the look. Sassy shoes brighten up any monochromatic look.
When hanging out with your friends, you want to be comfy — but still stylish enough for the inevitable group selfies.
As if a bow-front dress wasn’t festive enough, go bold with your most fun pair of statement earrings (and your go-to holiday heels!).
Layering up doesn’t have to eliminate the sexiness factor — look hot (and stay warm) with leather leggings and a tailored jacket.
Metallics can be classy and appropriate — just pair them with understated basics in neutral hues.
You don’t have to go all out to add a little shimmer and shine. To juxtapose cozy with fancy, put the two together!
If you want to dress to impress while decking the halls, we’ve got you covered. Keep your feet cozy AND look chic — it IS possible!
It can be hard to motivate to rock a dress in the winter — but not when it’s this comfy. Eat and drink to your heart’s content in a forgiving (but flattering) sweater dress and scarf.
If you couldn’t already tell, a sleek pair of black jeans can be worn just about anywhere. For a classy yet cozy look, pair them with your favorite cardigan and warmest slides.
Holiday shopping is fun — but can also be exhausting and draining. Keep your cool with the coziest sweater, a casual coat, and boots easy to walk in.
