Christmas Style Inspiration: Serena van der Woodsen in Paris


Christmas is coming! (Only 27 days til Christmas!)
But, don't know what to wear for Christmas yet? Take a cue from your favorite It Girl's fashion in Paris!

Serena van der Woodsen, the 'It Girl' in the fictional Upper East Side scene lends us some inspiration on what to wear for Christmas.

Look #1: Metallics

Paired with electric blue pants, the metallic blazer can take you from day to night, work to parties.

Styling tip: Keep it balanced. 
Keep the metallic article of clothing in focus. Don't pile on accessories. A ring or cuff is enough, especially when you have a metallic top. Keep your look polished. Let your shoes make up for what lack of accessories you have.

Celeb rocking the metallic trend: Elle Macpherson

See how she balances her metallic liquid leggings with a plain top? Plus, the accessories are at a minimum and her shoes take center stage.

Where to buy metallics:

-pair with black ankle booties and a soft gold clutch for that rockstar vibe.

-pair with a black (or gray works good also) loose sweater, chunky heels and a clutch.

-if you want a simple subtle statement to complement your trusty black dress.

Look #2: Palazzo Pants

Who says these have are only worn during the summer?
These can be worn with a fitted metallic blazer (mixing 2 trends is okay, 3 is over the top) to your office Christmas party, with a tank top and cardigan to go Christmas shopping or wear with wedges and a statement necklace when celebrating New Year's Eve on the beach!

Styling tip: Again, keep it balanced.
Pair these wide-legged bottoms with a fitted top, or tuck in a lightweight, long sleeved top into the pants and finish off with a slim belt. Or, follow Serena's lead and pair with a tank top and statement accessories.
Petite girls should have their pants altered so it hits the ankle. The shoes must be seen!
Curvy girls, pick one that fits the waist properly. It will show your curves better than you can imagine. Plus, the wide legged pants conceal your thighs.

Celeb rocking her palazzo pants: AnnaLynne McCord of 90210 fame

AnnaLynne keeps her color palette muted, balances off the pants' length with a sleeveless blouse and shows off her shoes.
