Christmas is less than three weeks away but the festivities are in full swing. The lights are decorating the streets and our favorite jingles are all over the radio. Nights at home are spent wrapping gifts, hosting parties and watching your favorite holiday movies.
In honor of this jubilation, we’ve created a list of items influenced by some of the top holiday movies over the years and how to make them your own this season.
10 Christmas Movie Themed Pieces for the Holidays
1. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
Somebody’s fabulous! This Dr. Seuss classic is joyful and triumphant. The Who’s signature full skirt will brighten up any party, especially in a tulle or a satin material. There are a variety of sizes and colors to play around with that are sure to make any outfit feel feminine and festive.
2. “The Holiday”
You don’t have to be cozied up in an English cottage to rock Cameron Diaz’s winter wardrobe. Soft knit sweaters and lose cardigans are perfect layers on chilly nights. The neutral colors work well with all shapes and materials.
3. “Love Actually”
A red peacoat pairs well with a Prime Minister but also adds a pretty pop of color to any outfit. Color blocking a favorite jacket can range from blazers, bombers and cropped coats. Try an option that best fits your style and a color that compliments the favorite pieces in your closet.
4. “A Christmas Story”
The lamp leg isn’t the only one who can look good in fish nets. Experiment with fun designs to play up a dress or skirt. For a relaxed feel, add a pair of high socks for warmth and texture.
Not now, Arctic Puffin! Fur details are all over holiday outerwear and are essential this time of year. You don’t have to go all out with a fur vest but a little touch can go a long way. Test it out this season on a pair of gloves or the hood of a jacket.
6. “The Nightmare Before Christmas”
A bold pattern is a great staple, even for the destroyer of Christmas Town. Stripes work well with both comfortable and classy attire. A structured jacket or a sweater dress are winter basics that look great in a simple striped pattern year round.
7. “The Santa Clause”
A classic holiday sweater style is back again this Christmas. A fun print or colorful design are always crowd pleasers. Find an option with the best fit that gives the frumpy ugly sweater fashion a run for its money.
8. “It’s A Wonderful Life”
This timeless classic is known for its true meaning and of course, the 40’s fashion. Pearls have been a ladies staple for decades and can easily be worn in a variety of ways in your accessories. A pearl headband or necklace adds just the right touch of sophisticated style.
9. “Home Alone”
Wandering about in the city with your favorite winter hat is key. Whether it be ear muffs or a fuzzy white beanie, staying warm and scheming for a sticky bandit arrest justifies a good hat.
10. “Miracle on 34th Street”
The 1940’s were all about collars. Spice up a simple sweater or opt for a dress with a peter pan collar accent. A jeweled collar accent also works as an updated look to your favorite top.
