Now that we’re in our 50’s 60s (and beyond), we have the confidence and freedom that comes from not being a slave to fashion and being comfortable in our own skin. How to dress for the Holidays? I believe the Holidays will be different than last year, but still like years past (whatever the new normal may be). Many of our holiday celebrations will still be small and casual. I thought I would feature a few casual looks and a couple of fun ones. I don’t know about you but I won’t be attending any formal events (wait did I ever?). Let’s take a look at How to Rock Creative Holiday Looks after 50.
I wore this skirt that I purchased while in Florida from a small boutique Nicole Paloma Designs. I personally would not wear this skirt without either leggings like I am showing here ( or with boots like I showed you here ) unless it was longer in the front. I am sure you can order a custom length if you contact Nicole. I wore it for Mary Ann’s birthday party with my new comfy combat boots (that you guys love haha). I am wearing it with a necklace from Love Heals (an anniversary gift several years ago from Steve), velvet birdies, and a BR turtleneck.

I featured this J Jill Sweater in my outfit of the week a couple weeks ago and it has been a favorite with all of you for good reason. I have ordered the plum and the green. This is my absolute favorite sweater this season. I am wearing a Small. The petite was too short for me. I like the length for coverage. I am wearing it with faux leather pants from WHBM, my new Rocki Gorman earrings (an early b-day present from Steve). Rocki’s shop is located in the beautiful La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe. She is also having a 15% off sale right now. These earrings make a statement so I just added a couple of my Native American bracelets and called it good. The boots are from Gentle Souls and are super comfortable (note the wide toebox).

Here I am wearing the versatile J Crew sweater pants that you saw in my post Fall Fashion the Knitwear Trend., with an old Zara velvet jacket and the Gentle Souls Emma boots. I accessorized with the same fabulous Rocki Gorman earrings, a navajo pearls strand & cross. I am wearing another pair of boots I picked up this year the Gentle Souls Emma.

This skirt was inexpensive $29 and fun. You read about it in my How to Wear Combat Boots Over 50 Post here.It comes in many other colors. I think you could pair this with a motorcycle jacket as well. If I were hosting a party this year I would definitely wear this. We need a little fun in our lives right now don’t we?

This tulle skirt my daughter wore to the prom one year. I finally had to pitch it in the move because it had too many tears. You can pick these skirts up inexpensively. There is no need to buy an expensive one because they can get torn farely easily. Here I am wearing it with an older mustard turtleneck, a suede obi belt, with a vintage rhinestone brooch. Simple rhinestone earrings and you are good to go.

You have seen this scarf from IBU (available in a dark red and an Ivory currently). It is a favorite of mine. Here I am wearing it with Spanx faux leather leggings, an inherited concho belt, and my trusty bed stu boots. FYI mine got lost in the move and I found a pair of Bed Stu Manchesters on Ebay (I wanted a broken-in pair. because of my bunion.)
