Holiday Style | 10 Festive Outfits

OHMYWORD!! I am so blown away by your response to the Gibson x Glam Holiday Collection, and even more specifically, The Cassie top! I’m seriously so humbled, and can’t thank you enough for your support, enthusiasm, and birthday wishes!

Plus, it’s always a good thing for Nordstrom to see the power of Hi Sugarplum readers! I’ve been getting lots of questions about another Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection…and while I can’t really say juuuuuuuust yet, I can tell you to stay tuned! #tease

Today I wanted to share some of the other amazing styles from the Glam Holiday Collection, and different outfit options for your parties and events this season. I honestly can’t get enough of the sequins and velvet, and this blush shade is so insanely flattering!

Scoop Back Top | Similar Cropped Pants | Gold Ring Bag | Nude PumpEarrings

The Megan scoop back top is so chic and classy, and definitely a piece you’d be able to wear for years. I love that it’s a little more fitted through the body, making it perfect for tucking into skirts and pants for a dresser look. The sleeves are also nice for Winter functions, and the blush pink and black color ways will work well beyond the holiday season.

I paired it with a pair of winter white pants for a subtle tone-on-tone style, and a pop of sparkle at the ears.

Fit Tip: It’s true to size, I’m wearing an XS

Another of Mama Sugarplum’s faves, this tunic top is easy-to-wear, with a touch of something special. Pair it with all black for a chic style, or dress it down with a distressed denim. And of course a pop of leopard is always a good idea!

Fit Tip: This top runs large, so size down. I’m wearing an XS and it’s overwhelming my frame a bit.

Flocked Top Peplum Top | Lipstick ‘Kate’

It’s a given I love the velvet halter…an updated version of the Maroma Halter from the the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection. This velvet fabric is so luxe, and drapes beautifully (some velvets can be stiff, but not this one!). The colors are rich red, black, and a stunning champagne blush.

Tuck it in to skirts or trousers, half-tuck with jeans, or even the satin or sequin joggers! The styling options are endless, and this gorgeous silhouette will never go out of style. The racerback is instantly flattering, too!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but I’d size down if you’re in-between.

If I had to pick a favorite from the Collection (besides ‘The Cassie‘ obviously!), it’d be this sequin flutter sleeve tee. The front is the same gorgeous sequins from my tank, but the back a silky-soft jersey knit! The flutter sleeves are the perfect length to fully cover your upper arms, and give the top a more flirty vibe.

It comes in blush and black, and I’ll be wearing them both year-round! It’s like your favorite tee, but kicked-up a notch!

Fit Tip: It’s true to size, I’m wearing XS

The Erin all-over lace top was one of your top three favorites yesterday…and I can see why! The gorgeous lace, bell sleeve, and contrasting trim make it so fun for holiday and beyond. It’s perfect for events when you want to feel festive, but also need to remain modest.

Fit Tip: It’s true to size, I’m wearing XS 

Lace Bell Sleeve | Earrings | Lipstick ‘Kate’

Another great long-sleeve option, this traditional wrap shirt is anything but basic with the satin fabric and waist-defining tie! Jeans, trousers, pencil skirts…it pairs with them all! Perfect for office parties, too!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but need to size down one.

Satin Wrap Top | Earrings | Distressed Jeans

Every closet needs a lace cami…perfectly sassy when worn alone, or stunning peeking out from under a blazer. The Rachel comes in three amazing color ways, each with a contrasting lace trim.

Fit Tip: True to size, I’m wearing XS. Plus, it has adjustable straps.

My adoration for this tank was instant! Luxe velvet plus beautiful bows, what’s not to love?! The same supple velvet as the other tops, this tank hangs beautifully with a deep v-neck, and long ties on the shoulder. I paired it with my surprise faves, the sequin jogger! I seriously am counting down the days until I can wear these!

They’re lined in the softest knit, making them as cozy as your favorite jogger…but oh-so-sassy! I wear them lower on the hip (I like a little hammer-time in my jogger), and high on the ankle, for a slouchy, relaxed fit.

Fit Tip: The tank runs big, so I’d size down one. The joggers are true to size. I’m wearing XS in both.

Velvet Tie Tank | Sequin Joggers | Pumps | Leopard Clutch | Lipstick ‘Claudia’

Pair the sequin joggers with virtually any fabric…velvet, silk, satin, even more sequins! I’d seriously wear them with a tee and jean jacket, too!

The Mallory velvet wrap top was another one of your favorites yesterday…in fact, I think there are only a few left. It’s a gorgeous top in vibrant shades of luxe velvet, with a flattering, easy-to-wear faux-wrap front.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS. If you’re busty, you may need a cami.

And finally, back to my #2 pick…the sequin flutter tee, this time in black. I gave it a little edge with knee boots, but couldn’t resist a pop of pink! It’s hard to resist this top, and one you’d get tons of wear for years! And if sequins aren’t your thing, check it out in the gorgeous velvet here!

    All of you ladies look beautiful. I am one of those ladies that helped Mallory sell out her velvet wrap top. I am a little older (ahem 69) than you girls but know that top will work very well for me.
    You are truly blessed Cassie to be able to do what you love and it shows. Inspiring!

    I love that sparkle top on you. That is you!
    If I were choosing something, it would probably be that lace cami. I’d wear it under a jacket.
    So fun and I’m so happy for you all!

    Congratulations! So exciting! I bought both Cassie sequin tanks and now I want the earrings, too, but can’t tell which color you were wearing with the blush tank. Are the disc earrings in rose gold, gold or silver? Thanks so much and keep up the good work!

  11. You look Hollywood glam in these pictures! I’ve enjoyed watching this glam collection unfold so very much! Also…how comfortable are those Steve Madden leopard pumps?! I need a new pair and was deciding between those and the Sam Edelman Hazel ones that look nearly identical!

      Thank you so so much! The pumps are fairly comfortable…for high heels! I’d choose based on the leopard print you like best!
