Actionable Fashion: Get Every Side of Holiday Style — From Cool, to Glam, to Edgy

by Danisha LaShae

Hey everyone, it’s that time of the year! Holiday season! While people are scurrying around trying to get last minute items for Thanksgiving dinner or even doing a little early Christmas shopping, I’m just trying to figure out what I’m going to wear. I know I know, that could sound a tad shallow, but hey, you and I know a lot of family pictures come with the holiday territory, so why would you want to look drab when you could look fab? You know I have your back with a few glam outfit ideas. As I always say, you can thank me later.


Outfit #1:

custom holiday ensemble with leopard print shorts, faux fur vest, long-sleeved button-up pumpkin blouse, black booties, and gold watch

Clothing details can be found on Polyvore

Now, I can’t take all the credit for this look. I was scrolling through the many Youtubers I watch, and one of the girls did an #OOTN (outfit of the night) video with an outfit similar to this. It looked so laid back and casual. The fur vest and leopard print shorts spices it up. I never realized how gorgeous leopard was against a rustic color like this orange blouse. Trust me, you’re not alone — I’m creating a shopping list too.


Outfit #2:

holiday glam outfit with olive green coat with print sleeves, sheer black camisole, belted black booties, gold jewelry, and black panel leggings

Clothing details can be found on Polyvore. Those booties are only $18 at! Get them!

If you recreate this look you’ve got to hashtag, Tweet, Instagram, or Facebook share this outfit and mention myself (Instagram: DanishaLashae) or Downtown Orlando Fashion Week. Be aware that you might get a few side eyes from the girl that wishes she owned the jacket. I know I would! I was giving the computer screen the side eye when I saw it. This isn’t a day outfit, but it’s great for an evening holiday party or even New Years; and the panel leggings add that wow factor.


Outfit #3:

holiday edgy style with thigh-high black faux-leather boots, tribal print cardigan, studded black faux leather vest, pleated white dress, and gold and black jewelry

Clothing details can be found on Polyvore

And you know I had to save the best for last. So far I gave you holiday casual and holiday glam, now I’m giving you holiday edge. This is all types of cool and fall inspired. You have your faux leather, tribal print, and studs. What more can you ask for?


I pray everyone has a wonderful holiday. Be fashionable, but don’t forget the true meaning of the holiday season. Until next time!
