Fresh Picks: Catie Styles the Holidays

Seattle Stylist + Fashion Blogger, Catie of Fleur d'Elise styles Citizen Rosebud's fresh picks for the holidays
Recently, I had the chance to spend some time with Seattle fashion blogger and stylist, Catie B of the popular blog, Fleur D'Elise. Catie styled up some great winter holiday outfits, culled from the Citizens-of-Rosebud fresh picked vintage collection. We managed a quick photo session of some of our favorite winter holiday stylings, as she shared her style tips for dressing for the season.

This is the time of year to incorporate sparkles and fun into your wardrobe. A good question to ask yourself when putting together a festive outfit is "What would 6-year-old me want to wear?" For myself, it was shoes with bows. Velvet, another cozy option, looks rich and luxurious and photographs gorgeously. Velvet blazers are pretty easy to find, and finish off an outfit perfectly.

Sweaters may seem like no-brainers, but having a good variety in your wardrobe can make your life easier AND warmer. A cropped sweater is great for layering over dresses or pairing with high-waist skirts. A sweater in a size up means you will be able to work more layers into your outfit on extra cold days. 

Plaids look festive and are, quite frequently, made of very warm wool- so they're just the thing for the chilly walk from the car to the party.

Shine: I always break out the metallic accessories this time of year. Nothing says "Happy New Year" like a pair of heels that match the Times Square ball!

Dark colors: Don't get me wrong, dark colors are super practical in the Winter, so I recommend investing in black and navy colored wool garments, like pants and coats. They insulate as well as soak up heat from that seldom-seen ball of light known as the sun.

What a lovely outfits. I had great difficulty in creating a nice sparkly outfit this year. In the end I gave up. Terrible isn't it?
