Forget the black-on-black uniform from last winter. Instead, opt for all-cobalt office wear or ballet-pink velvet. As monochrome trends get more colorful by the season, we say the brighter the better. One-tonal outfitting may seem challenging at first. But don’t be intimidated. Just focus on the structural elements of your garb, like texture and shape, and remember that now’s the time to play with accessories—also, a statement red lip goes far in elevating your look.

Read on for some of our favorite colors and shopping options for going full-on monochrome, so you can lead the trend.

What to Wear to 3 Types of Holiday Parties

When the invitations to merriment arrive, our minds quickly turn to what to wear. And most holidays we’re not dressing for a single party but for three or four or five. Planning party wear can be preoccupying—and pretty fun.

To give us a jump-start this season, we’ve put together nine looks for three different types of affairs. Whether we’re chilling with our girls, celebrating with office mates or sipping cocktails at the in-laws’, we always look as festive as an (extremely fashionable) elf. Here are our tips, plus seasonal inspiration and shoppable styles, all wrapped up in a pretty package. (It’s OK if you didn’t get us anything.)

Taking our cues from the street-style set, we’ve rounded up several hats and caps to keep us warm this winter. They’re all really so chic, we’re calling them this season’s crowning achievement.

Wedding Trimmings: You’ve Got the Dress, Now Get the Rest

Congratulations. There were millions out there, yet you managed to find “the one.” Or maybe you’ve chosen two? (If so, no one’s judging—a shorter reception dress is a handy option for the dance floor.) Either way, now you can move on to assembling your wedding-day trousseau—from jewelry and a veil to shoes and night-of lingerie.

While your wedding dress is decidedly the eye-grabbing foundation of your big-day wardrobe, shoes and accessories are the finishing touches that express your distinct personality. That leaves a lot of space to experiment. You can go big, go subtle, go bohemian or go retro.

Because there are so many options out there, we’ve rounded up a few tips and accessory ideas to help you get started. Also, if you’re surrounding yourself with a bridal party, you’ll want your bridesmaid outfits to reflect a similar aesthetic—so get your supporting ladies in on the search.

The Sweater Style Danish It Girls Love

For a tiny country, Denmark has cornered the international market on coolness. Celebrity chef René Redzepi put hyperlocal cuisine and foraged foods on the menu. Nordic noir shows like The Killing and The Bridge spawned streaming binge sessions around the globe. “Hygge” had us all swaddled in wooly blankets in front of fires seeking the Dane’s national brand of coziness.

Then there are the Danish It girls, like Pernille Teisbaek and Emili Sindlev, who epitomize Scandi style. Truly, Copenhagen may just be our favorite city for the mellow yet sophisticated looks on its streets. One tip we picked up from these Northern beauties in the hip district of Nørrebro: Scandinavian-inspired sweaters are the next heritage piece primed for mass appeal. Their folksy patterns, colorful yarns and snug warmth make them so inviting.

Here are a few of our favorite cheery knits to shop now. Pair them with pants or skirts for a fresh fall look. And feel free to mix prints with your knits: it’s how the Danes do it.
