Who would have thought that as we’re well into November, we’re not thinking about outfits for office holiday parties or fancy dresses to wear out on NYE [although hi, I’ll gladly put on a fancy ballroom for my living room]. No, this year, our biggest holiday fashion concerns are making sure our looks include some sort of stretchy waistband, and making sure we have a top or two in our arsenal that will be appropriate for video meetings [with joggers on, out of sight of course]. My wardrobe has continued to get more and more casual throughout 2020, but for the holidays, I’m taking my casual comfort up a notch.
Rather than saying goodbye to the comfy clothes we’ve come to love [please, no, never], I’m sharing ways to simply elevate your loungewear a bit. And Express is the one-stop shop that’s ready to fill this need! From puff sleeve sweatshirts to patterned bottoms to simply adding in a few fun accessories. No matter which way you choose, elevating your look is a breeze. All the comfort, with just a bit of added pizzazz.
I used to shop Express for cocktail dresses, the best office pants, and date night outfits [don’t worry, they still have plenty of all of that!]. Now I’m turning to Express for loungewear that adds a bit “extra.” As many of us are getting ready to spend holidays at home, they’ve added a bit of sparkle to their collections, while still keeping things comfortable! Their entire “Cozy Shop” is full of items that you’ll never want to take off – warm sweaters, cozy joggers, comfy dresses, and more – and right now it’s all 50% off during their Black Friday Sale!
Crocodiles? No thank you. Crocodile print? Yes, please. I’ll have another! I hadn’t seen croc print joggers before, but now I’m not sure there has ever been a better tonal print jogger in existence. Perfectly paired with this puff sleeve sweater, and I’m ready to cook, eat, and sleep in this look this holiday season!
What are the holidays without a little sparkle? Just because this year hasn’t gone exactly as planned doesn’t mean we’re doing away with all of the glitz! I love the simple rhinestone embellishment on this tee to quickly dress up your favorite pair of joggers [like these!]. All that’s left to add is a cup of ‘nog!
If there was ever a year for a holiday sweatsuit, this is the year. Technically, it’s a jumpsuit, but tomato tomato. Whether you’re watching your favorite holiday movie, carving a turkey-for-two, or simply thinking about all the things you’re grateful for this year, this cozy jumpsuit looks the part. Put a bit of sparkle in your hair to really make things “fancy” and you’ve got yourself a NYE look for 2020!
