Taste{full} Tips: What To Wear To A Holiday Party - The Red Sweater!

9:02 AM

Liquid leggings are fabulous on celebrities and some of my tall model-esque friends (read: Tiff), but since they'll not be gracing THIS body anytime soon, I'm going to cling passionately to my red Christmas sweater!  This year I'll bust out of my classic v-neck rut and try one of these fancy red confections, sure to reflect both the cheer of the season AND my good taste!

Of course Anthropologie will always have plenty of options to tempt me....

(Left to Right)  $98.00, $118.00, $98.00
However, my budget's currently not very Anthropologie-friendly, so here are some steals $40 and under!

(Left to right)  New York & Co. Ruffled Sweater, $39.50 (BOGO 1/2 off!*), Mossimo Black Ultrasoft Boyfriend Cardigan, $22.99, Forever 21 Cable Trim Sweater, $32.00
And what goes better with a fabulous red sweater than a fabulous red lip?  Two flatters-any-skin-tone steals are N.Y.C. New York Color Ultra Lush Lip Wear in Red Flame at only $2 at your local Target, and Avon Perfect Wear Plump & Stay Lipcolor in Forever Wine, only $9 at Avon.com!  (Currently the lipcolor is buy one get one for $2.99 on select products!)

*Every sweater and select tops & bottoms at New York & Co. are Buy One Get One 1/2 off... combine that with their current promo of at least $25 off of a $75 purchase (promo code 1650), and you could get 2 holiday outfits (2 cardis + 2 tanks) for only about $50!

  1. Ok I stand corrected...these red sweaters are anything but unoriginal! Of course, I LOVE the Forever 21 option. Can I pair it with liquid leggings?! ;)

  2. Of course YOU can pair anything with liquid leggings! :) I, on the other hand, will be pairing mine with some nice slimming dark denim. ;)

  3. These red sweaters are really nice looking. I like the ruffles. Very pretty.
