Last week I had the opportunity to join some of my favorite bloggers at Anthropologie Rittenhouse Square to try on some holiday looks in store.  With Thanksgiving already up NEXT WEEK! and Christmastime not far behind, the season of annual family gatherings and dinner parties begins.  I was crushing on the velvet mini dresses and off-the-shoulder plaid options that can both be worn for multiple seasons by adding faux leather leggings or skinny denim.  And because faux leather leggings had become a staple in my closet last fall, I found a new favorite pair that has a lot of stretch for a great, flattering fit and chic moto details.  They also had a great selection of unique floor-length dresses for those more formal get-togethers, which can also be styled so that they are more wearable for every day by adding a simple shoe and a jean jacket.  I would even love to style some of them with white, low, Converse sneaks.  And there were so many perfect lace tops, dresses and skirts that all exude such a classic, timeless look and feel.  Here are some of my favorite picks from the night.

1.  Winter white is always a good idea and this wool dress is warm and chic.

2.  Velvet is everywhere this winter and I love that you can pair this mini dress with faux leather leggings, too.

3.  This fringed lace tunic is so pretty and easy to wear, and it comes in two great colors.

1.  Such a cute off-the-shoulder dress that fits longer than it looks and is so comfortable.

2.  Absolutely loved this dress.  The shades of green are my favorite and it will go just as well with sneaks and a denim jacket as it will with statement earrings and heels.

3.  The colors in this dress are gorgeous and the details on the sleeves are exquisite.

1.  I snagged this top the other night and have already worn it a bunch with flared blue denim and black leather leggings.

2.  This is like the dress option of the previously mentioned blouse.  Love the gold dot detail and the halter top cut.

3.  Love a bold red dress for the holidays and any occasion and this one has a beautiful lace silhouette.

1.  One of my absolute favorites for formal dinner parties this holiday season or winter weddings.

2.  The best pair of vegan leather pants to wear with a white-tee and sneaks or dress up with heels and a statement blouse.

3.  A super soft flannel dress that has long sleeves for the chilly weather.  Great with tall riding boots or skinny jeans.

Happy holiday season!
