1. Gorgeous Gingerbread
Here’s a festive, elevated outfit to wear to any occasion. WVN’s Aurelia Dress in Gingerbread is stunningly gorgeous and will help keep you warm with its long sleeves and below-the-knee skirt. Pair it with Nisolo’s Dari Boot and L.Greenwalt Jewelry’s Flame Necklace to compliment the dress’s V neckline and tie everything together.

3. Golden Age Geometric Glam
For a 1920s-inspired look, we love Anchal Project’s modern geometric crop top with this beautifully versatile skirt. Add matching some white shoes, like Nisolo’s Heeled Mule, and matching white modern geometric jewelry, like Hathorway’s Horn Post Dangle Earrings, and you’re all set for a glamorous night out!
4. Sustainable Showstopper
This festive fair trade outfit features three uniquely handmade pieces: a handcrafted dress made in a fair trade women’s cooperative in India, timeless clogs handmade in Spain, and matching earrings and necklace crafted using responsibly sourced, ethically mined, or recycled sterling silver. They are remarkable pieces by themselves, but together they create a truly showstopping look.
5. The Life of the Party
If you’re looking for a fun look without any frills or sequins, this WVN Devon Dress is a great choice. It looks fabulous with mules or slides for warmer months and boots for the chillier ones. And a great pair of dangling earrings like Sara Patino Jewelry’s Gold Recycled Hoops will add just the right amount of shine to this look.

Bring some sustainable shine to your holiday with Symbology’s Cherry Blossom Modal Maxi Wrap paired with white Dari Boots. Add additional sparkle to your look with Salt + Still’s Hoop Earrings, a stunning square bangle, and a statement waterfall necklace to create a cohesive and elevated look.
