Holiday outfit looks

Fancy party

Express Velvet Strapless Midi Sheath Dress

Garcia says velvet is the perfect fabric for the holiday season and allows you to keep the outfit simple. She says this sweetheart neckline and strapless dress makes a fabulous option that can go from cocktail party to after dinner engagement. Plus, it comes in three different colors to choose from.

Express Velvet Double Breasted Shawl Collar Blazer

If you want to dress a little more conservative, Garcia suggests throwing on a matching velvet blazer. You can also repurpose this blazer for other occasions and pair it with jeans, leggings or the matching pants.

Aldo Geaven Crossbody Clutch

Garcia adds a little sparkle to the outfit with a statement clutch, that can also be worn on the shoulder or crossbody. She loves this matching ruby color since it doesn't pull away from the outfit.

Express Rhinestone Strap High Heeled Sandals

Add even more sparkle to the holiday look with a high heel shoe that features three straps of rhinestones.

Vici Rhonda Layered Chain Necklace

For a statement accessory, Garcia likes this layering chain necklace. The brand says it features an adjustable clasp holder and a chic pendant. Not to mention you can currently save 50% off with code STYLE20.

Elevated casual party

For him

A&F Signature Stretch Denim Skinny Jeans

Garcia says denim is a great foundation for a casual holiday party and adds that a tailored pair of jeans provides an elevated look. This "skinny jean" from Abercrombie & Fitch features a wider leg and is made of 90 percent cotton, says the brand.

Old Navy Cozy Matching Fair Isle Sweater

This cozy fair isle knit from Old Navy gives off a warm holiday feel, says Garcia. According to the brand, the sweater hits just below the waist and is made of plush cotton-blend yarn.

Express Tan Wool-Blend Topcoat

To add structure, Garcia loves a classic and tailored coat. Made of 30 percent wool, the brand says this coat features a double-breasted lapel and multiple pockets. Right now you can grab this winter essential at 67% off.

Express Genuine Leather Lace Up Dress Boots

Pull the look together with a classic, genuine leather boot. This pick from Express features a padded foot sole and low-heel for the ultimate comfort, says the brand.

For her

Levi's XL Flood Women's Jeans

For a bold but casual look, Garcia loves these wide-legged jeans, which she says gives you an elongated silhouette. According to the brand, these high-waisted pants have a relaxed fit and are made of 79 percent cotton.

1.STATE Metallic Crop Blazer

While Garcia loves an oversized blazer, she says a crop style feels more polished. This option from the brand 1.STATE features metallic threading to give the blazer an extra touch of holiday shimmer.

Commando Ballet Sleeveless Mockneck Bodysuit

Garcia says a bodysuit is an essential layering piece. According to the brand, this super stretchy material allows for one size to fit most. Plus, it features a thong back so you don't have to worry about any lines.

Vici Bermuda Crystal Fringe Drop Earrings

For bit of sparkle, Garcia says these crystal fringe earrings can transform an entire outfit. And when in stock, you can save 20% off with code STYLE20.

Editor's note: These earrings keep selling out, so you can either join the waitlist for updates on when they're back in stock or try an alternative pair, like these earrings from Nordstrom.

Aldo Specchio Clutch

Pull the entire look together with a sparkly purse. According to the brand, it comes with a removable chain so you can wear it on your shoulder, or neatly tuck the chain in and rock it as a clutch.

Mother/Daughter look

Vici Kiyara Billowed Shimmer Plisse Top

Since mamas are so busy and often want something easy but pulled together, Garcia says matching sets are the perfect option — and it takes all the guess work out of getting ready. The top features a billowy effect with a cropped-fit. The gold option has limited sizes but you can grab it in bronze or silver. Plus, save 20% off with code STYLE20.

Vici Kiyara High Risee Shimmer Plisse Pants

The matching pants are extremely high-waisted with a loose wide leg so you'll feel extra chic and comfortable. The gold option has limited sizes but you can grab it in bronze or silver. Plus, save 20% off with code STYLE20.

New York & Company Gabrielle Union Collection Fatima Puffy Mule

Garcia completes the matching set with a monochrome look and opts for a nude heel. Featuring a puffy strap, the shoe also comes in the color black.

Janie and Jack Metallic Plisse Ruffle Jumpsuit

Although it's not totally matching, Garcia says the shimmery, plisse fabric jumpsuit has the same idea as mom. According to the brand, this rose gold option is made of 100 percent polyester and Garcia says it's both extremely comfortable and easy to throw on.

Janie and Jack Metallic Bow Flat

Add some extra glam to her holiday look with these genuine leather and metallic flats, which feature a metallic bow and buckle enclosure.
