Before I came to live in the United States the word “holiday” meant time off, or a trip away from home. Americans call that a vacation. To them the “holidays” refers to the time period from Thanksgiving Day in late November through to New Year’s Day. It’s a time of holiday parties at work, at school, and with family and friends. People need outfits for these occasions, which can be casual, dressy or formal.

Whether it’s a formal do, a casual holiday bash with friends, a ballet, an evening at a ski lodge, or an intimate date with a loved one, it’s fun to look festive for the holidays. Here are some items that have been winners on clients recently, and that caught my eye. Price points vary and so does the level of quality. The items are versatile because some can be worn to the office, to holiday parties and events, or to other occasions.
