Hello everyone! This is Chrissy from The Chrissy Collective, and I’m here to share with you my go-to outfit for the upcoming holiday festivities despite living in San Diego where the weather has a tendency to stay on the warmer side of things. However, this makes it a little bit easier when choosing my OOTD as my summer favorites are able to transition effectively.
I chose this thrifted, black jumpsuit and paired it with yet another thrifted favorite: the black and white coat. Accented with silver buttons, it oozes of vintage Chanel (although it really isn’t). Despite having false pockets, I added the coat because yes, it does get cold over here. Also, having the top part of your body exposed to the elements isn’t really appropriate for the chilly weather. Lastly, I added some strappy heels, a gold chain bracelet, and this Guess bag to complete my look.
When styling this outfit, I chose to stick with my regular, go-to color palettes, in this case, black and white, instead of going with the traditional greens and reds. One might say that wearing mostly black isn’t a good choice during this time of year, but I’m not one to sacrifice my tastes in clothes just so I can be trendy and the coat provides a harmony that makes this OOTD suitable for Christmas parties.
