Guys, it’s finally here: the home stretch, the last sips of caffeine at 10 p.m., the final nights/mornings (however you want to define slaving over homework until the wee hours of the day) spent at the library. We can almost taste the Thanksgiving turkey, almost see the glimmering lights of the Christmas tree or Menorah, almost hear our friends screaming “5,4,3,2…” at the top of their lungs in anticipation for the new year; our highly anticipated, anxiously awaited holiday breaks are finally here! And what better way to spend procrastinating for those midterms and looking forward to the upcoming celebrations than perusing online for your holiday looks.
Providing us with every sartorial necessity imaginable, ASOS, a UK-based online clothing company, is the best place to find all of your holiday pieces. Whether it be traveling home to see the fam over break, the perfect look to impress your significant other’s parents at Thanksgiving dinner or a knock-out New Years Eve ensemble that will have everyone’s eyes reverting back from the shimmering ball to your sensational look, ASOS has what you’re looking for. And at insanely affordable prices and free shipping, that’s right, FREE SHIPPING, ASOS’ styles work well for our student budgets.
When setting out to find my three holiday looks, I wanted to get a few pieces that I could mix and match into each ensemble. First things first, the shoe. I went for ASOS’ ARC Ankle Booties with a silver zip detail. The versatile shape and classic black leather gave me the ability to pair these booties with all three outfits. Not to mention they are downright comfortable and have a heel, what could be better?
For my traveling home look I paired these booties with an ASOS chunky, knit sweater and ASOS vintage-inspired boyfriend jeans. The top is perfect for November and December’s chilly temperature and a comfortable feel for the airplane. Believe me, Fashionistas, I hate traveling just as much as the next girl, and am typically tempted to wear sweats, but these boyfriend jeans are one of the best things that has ever happened to my closet. They literally feel like sweat pants, perfect for long hours in the car/plane.
Purchasing these items made putting together my Thanksgiving look easy. I used the same knit sweater and booties and paired them with a shin-grazing skirt and ASOS’ Glitter Ankle Socks. The baroque print of ASOS' Midi Skirt falls right on trend with this season autumn/winter 2012/13 runway collections and is sure to catch the attention of friends and fam with its bold hues.
For my New Year’s Eve look, I wanted something unexpected. You typically see girls wearing something sparkly or embellished for New Years, always a cute idea, but I opted for a printed party dress complete with peplum detail. With its purple, heart pattern and charming silhouette, I knew ASOS’s dress would make me feel like the life of the party. Peplums and collars continue to be a huge trend for the upcoming seasons, both trends exemplified outstandingly on this piece.
Last but not least, I purchased ASOS's Longline Animal Fur Coat. Believe me, the cheetah fur and fun shape will definitely have you feeling like a serious Fashionista. And althought this coat is bold, its neutral tones allow it to be paired with almost any item.
So Fashionistas, when you find yourself scouring the interweb for your holiday pieces, make sure you go to ASOS for all your holiday needs. Opt for picking pieces that can be mix and matched and go for that unexpected New Years look. ASOS’s holiday collection is full of funky dresses, and don’t forget to #BestNightEver when you instagram and tweet your perfect ASOS holiday ensembles.
