What to Wear for the Holidays (Part 1)

November 20, 2017

It’s our favorite time of the year- family and friends, holiday parties, amazing food, special traditions, etc. The last thing you want to think (or worry) about is what to wear. Let our personal shoppers at A.K. Rikk’s help simplify just that! Jordan and Hannah have put together some “his” and “hers” outfits that are classic, stylish, and perfect for all your holiday occasions. In this rendition, we’ll cover the general holiday events- Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. Once you explore these looks, we’ll send some more inspiration your way in Part 2 (Office Holiday Party, Cocktail Holiday Party, and Formal Holiday Party).


Whether dining in or out, these looks are perfect for a Thanksgiving with friends and family. Both have a great mix of textures with elevated, earthy tones. The layers add versatility (coat/sweater on the men’s look and scarf on the woman’s look) depending on the weather, and the elasticity in the woman’s dress allows for a little extra room for pumpkin pie. Although the colors are more neutral, the pump and bracelet bag add a little femininity and formality to the woman’s look. The jean (especially when paired with the loafer) in the men’s look adds a casual, but still formal look for this holiday event.


Our personal shoppers pulled together some Christmas looks that are warm and cozy, but still sophisticated for a classic holiday at home. According to Jordan, in these looks, you can “sit by the fire, open gifts, and even chop down a tree.” The L’AGENCE pant in the woman’s look is a new rich, chocolate brown color with plenty of stretch, and the men’s trouser is a great alternative to jeans. Holiday parties, however, may require a more formal look- you’ll have to stay tuned for Part 2!

New Year’s Eve:

It’s almost 2018, so start it off with a bang and looking your best. For New Year’s Eve, these looks will elevate your style and really make you stand out. Many men have a tuxedo jacket, but are unsure of how else to wear it other than in a traditional fashion- why not throw it with a pair of jeans and t-shirt for a modern, cool vibe? The woman’s look is cute and fun, but a little sexy when you take off the jacket. You’ll be the perfect pair, turning heads in these outfits that pair classic pieces with a little bit of glitz (both men’s and woman’s shoe and woman’s look purse and earrings).
