For holiday dressing, I like to find pieces that feel festive *and* work in my closet long after all the merrymaking. No other brand does low-key dressed up like Madewell — and everything is 40% off right now with code LETSGO — so here are my top 11 dressy-ish picks:
1 | Sequin Slip Mini Dress | THIS COLOR. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous shade of brown? Pair it with the Antoine Boots (#11) and a leather jacket (#3). Or pop a crewneck sweater on top and suddenly you’ve got a cute miniskirt too.
2 | The Tennis Collection Bezel Set Earrings | I never want to invest much money into sparkly accessories, so thank you Madewell for coming through with the well-priced, high-quality jewelry. You could wear these with just a plain ol’ tee and jeans and you’d be shining.
3 | The Washed Leather Motorcycle Jacket | Let’s say you’ve got some good dresses in your closet, but you’ve had them for a while and they are feeling kind of stale. Revive them and up their cool factor by pairing them with a leather jacket — the perfect not-too-dressy-not-too-casual piece for when you’re not sure of the dress code.
4 | Huma Blanco Quinn Boot | WHAT A BOOT! I almost screamed when I saw these. Slouchy suede that looks like hot chocolate and that statement heel that’s a reasonable height. These unfortunately aren’t included in the 40% off sale, but they are on sale anyway. I’m usually an 7.5-8 in boots and usually take an 8 in Huma Blanco boots.
5 | Oversized velvet scrunchie | Pair it with a slicked back bun and a leather jacket. It’d also be a cheerful addition to your PJs while you’re watching cheesy Netflix Christmas movies. We love!
6 | Cableknit Cropped Cardigan | The cable pattern extends to the back of the sweater on this one — a sign of quality and actually pretty rare to find at this price point. Wear with light wash jeans and sparkly earrings (#2) for a casual, cute holiday look.
7 | The Bead Embellished Shoulder Bag | What a cutie! Again, I’m just loving Madewell’s tiger stripe print right now. This bag would look so good with the Off Shoulder Long Sleeve Top (#8).
9 | Jacquard Funnel Neck Top | The perfect cozy top to pack if you’re headed home for family time. Pair it with a slip skirt for a dressier vibe or wear it with slouchy jeans for a casual, comfy outfit.
10 | Sequin Square Neck Cami | A sparkly cami top and your favorite jeans — it’s the easiest way to wear sparkles. Remember, you can also wear this to any upcoming Taylor Swift karaoke nights you may have planned. ;-)
