Tina, here.

ONLY 3 SATURDAYS til Christmas. THREE. So, basically, it's time to get your booty in gear and knock out some shopping... for all the gifts you need and all the outfits you need for the parties that will be crammed into 3 weeks instead of the typical 4 weeks. Not to worry! Everything you need is here, and, for a Christmas surprise, one of my very favorite online boutiques, Halsbrook, is giving my readers  20% off the entire site for 4 DAYS ONLY, Dec. 6-9 (excluding sale items)! Code below.

If you haven't had time to pull together your party outfits, don't worry. You need those very pretty, very festive, yet not limited to just holidays, wardrobe heroes to give your holiday style a special touch. Halsbrook has become my go-to, and now yours, for beautiful wardrobe heroes. Their classic sense of style and their lovely customer service is, I have to say, the finest I've encountered - as proven by the online order disasters I've recently experienced.

Because we love shopping with Halsbrook, they are ever gracious to give you, my readers, an exclusive holiday discount, just for us.

Ok, so let's assess. You've got children's Christmas programs, office parties, girls' group luncheons, a Bunko party, neighborhood get-togethers, family get-togethers, Christmas Eve, Christmas morning, New Year's Eve, and on and on. Breathe, my dear friends. I want you to feel beautiful so you can forget about yourself, and give all your attention to those you love. So, here are my 11 holiday wardrobe heroes.

How To Style Your Holiday Wardrobe With These Halsbrook Heroes

T.Ba Rania Ivory Cupro Shirt, $265, your price $212

This soft creamy blouse has a great hand - it drapes beautifully, but manages not to lose its shape. And the cuffs are so sophisticated, but understated. I am wearing the Ecru Varick Bootcut Power Stretch Pant in forest green, which is actually quite easy to pair with other pieces.

Notice the hidden placket. The buttons are spaced perfectly so there is no way, no matter your shape or size, that it would gape open - details I love.

Helene Berman Leopard Printed Stretch Cotton Blazer, $235, your price $188

I don't know how these fabrics are all so delicious, but they are. This jacket isn't stiff, but it's substantial. And it's cotton! And it has stretch! And you can wear it over an LBD or with jeans! I like that it's bright with lots of white/ivory in the background, and not so dark.

Ecru Varick Bootcut Power Stretch Pant in Forest Green (or Black), $180, your price $144

These are the subtle forest green pants that are soooo rich. They are made from Ecru's signature washable, wrinkle resistant, power stretch fabric. Engineered for the most flattering fit, the slight flare will elongate your silhouette. Treat them as a neutral: will pair wonderfully with black, white, brown, camel, just don't wear them with red, Mrs. Claus.

You can see the deep green of the pants here. I've paired them with a very festive silver turtleneck and a vest that is the most real-feeling faux fur I've ever felt.

Majestic Filatures Gunmetal Metallic Turtleneck, $195, your price $156

This subtly sparkly long-sleeved turtleneck is crafted from a signature 'soft touch' viscose-elastane fabric, which means this: the neck won't fall down into a wrinkly mock-neck - it will stay standing, it won't suffocate you, it's a great layering piece, and last but not least, viscose is my favorite man-made fabric. 🙂

Elaine Kim Parnassus Black Faux Fur Vest, $295, your price $236

I mentioned that this faux fur vest is the best I've seen or felt. I LITERALLY want to curl up and sleep on it. It looks good, I promise. It's not sticky or scratchy. It's divine.

And it has pockets. If you live in a climate where the weather changes all the time, like in the South, a vest is the ideal layering piece.

Hinson Wu Betty White Stretch Cotton Shirt, $170, your price $136

This classic white shirt is designed in an easy-fitting, tunic style with a button front fastening and features a bottom half concealed placket. It's cut from a lightweight stretch cotton-blend, and, let's all say it together, you can dress it up or down with jeans or these sateen silvery grey pants.

Peace of Cloth Jerry Silver Stretch Sateen Pant, $170, your price $136

THE silhouette of the season, a cropped ankle pant (not to be confused with evil capris), these sateen pants fall to your ankle bone, and are oh so flattering! You will not be tucking anything into these, so relax and wear a great blouse and jacket or a pretty sweater over them.

Sail to Sable Plaid Stretch Cotton Top, $168, your price $134.40

Is this not the cutest ever!! Those big, bold buttons prancing down your back are so fab. Which of course means you'll be wearing this darling plaid blouse with white jeans in the spring and summer to show them off! This winter and holiday season, just toss a jacket on and keep your little secret to yourself. Don't miss the collar - face-framing and flattering.

Kinross Crystal Cashmere Poncho, $370, your price $296

Ohhhh this luxurious crystal poncho is a perfect layering piece to elevate any outfit. It's knit from a signature soft cashmere, and features crystalline details throughout the fabric and drapes beautifully over anything. I wanted you to see how you can wear it over a collared blouse. Just keep everything kinda loose and casual. Very luxe.

If you are going from the office to a post-work party, trade your blazer or jacket for this chic poncho! It's an instant party outfit!

Pashma Silk Cashmere Sweater, $275, your price $220

Not everything has to be red, green or sparkly during the holidays. Invest in a beautiful sweater you can wear through fall and winter. This paisley one is knitted from a sumptuous cashmere-silk blend, and I have to say, paisley is one of the few patterns I think look good against the face (animal print is another, and plaid). Wear a statement necklace right at the neckline.

GREAT DEAL ALERT! This LBD is such a great deal for such a good look! And it's machine washable cotton...so nice.

Sail to Sable Black Textured Button Neck Dress, $190, your price $152

It may be time for an update. If your little black dress is looking tired, may I introduce you to this beauty! Soooo comfy. I'm 5'5" and it hits a little above my knees. You can always wear black tights with it during the cold months. But believe me it will look fresh this spring with sandals! Cost per wear!

Those buttons! They lend a bit of a contemporary feel to a classic. I'd call this neckline more of a high bateau than a mock because the neck is wider, and not fitted like a mock neck.

Thank you Halsbrook! We love your modern classics. And now we are ready for the holiday parties! Let the good cheer begin! Don't forget to use your code TINA20 for 20% off your entire order (excluding sale).
