Body-positive looks for the holidays

The holiday season can be stressful, especially when you’re trying to get the right look. Some are looking for “Ho Ho Ho,” while others are going for the “Nice” list. There’s tons of pressure to sacrifice comfort for amazing looks, cramming your body into shapewear or clothes that just don’t fit.

Efffff that.

These 15 looks are perfect for your next holiday party — and look great on their own.

Femme, #sleigh.

1. All-Black Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are wonderful, magical things that allow you to look as put-together as a dress, but boast the maneuverability of pants. They’re the perfect base for incredible statement jewelry and bold makeup, or a subdued classic look, as seen here.

2. Mix Fabrics to Create Texture

This bold mix of textures takes this classic look to dapper with a dash of punk. We love the gold bow tie in this great androgynous look.


3. Leather and Lace

This hard femme leather-and-lace combo is made more classic with a red lip and a flick of black liner. Definite #naughtylist.

4. Maxi Skirt

The maxi skirt is still in and looks gorgeous paired with this black body suit! Choose a festive color like cranberry or green to really invoke the Christmas spirit.

5. Animal-Print Glam

This dress is absolutely to die for with its body-hugging silhouette and perfectly placed cut-out neckline. Some argue that animal prints are more appropriate for fall, but we’re here for year-round leopard looks. The deep burgundy lip is a perfect modern take on glam this holiday season.

4. Mistletoe Green

Red and wine colors get all of the holiday shine. Switch it up a bit by incorporating gorgeous mistletoe green into your holiday look. You’ll stand out in a sea of holly red while still keeping it classic.

5. Bomber Jacket with Tie

This look makes us hungry — and not just because of the cutie in the outfit! The sugarplum scheme with cranberry pants and a custardy, cream-colored bomber jacket move fall into winter and it’s just perfect for a slightly warmer climate like our California HQ!

6. T-Shirt and Tulle

Check out this perfect rebel princess look. Layer with a black motorcycle jacket to keep warm while maintaining your cool.


7. Bra As A Shirt

We are here for the cage bra as a shirt. These gorgeous details elevate it from underwear to outwear, especially paired with a sassy faux fur coat like this. Channel a Marla-Singer-meets-Biggie-Shorty vibe with this killer look.

8. Luxe Fabric and Shine

While not exactly low maintenance looks, these three are so incredible that we had to share them! Fashion to Figure nails this capsule collection with luxurious velvet and shiny brocades, as well as beautifully stark, glamorous white. It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to holiday glam!

9. Grunge Glam

Once again, Zelie for She nails throwback glam. This look feels like something that Courtney Love and Eve would have gravitated toward at the height of their careers, and it’s uh-may-zing.

10. Dapper Kink

Skip the tie and let your kink flag flag. This might not be great for a biological family dinner or work outing, but wear it for your Festivus dance party and show the crowd exactly what you want.

11. Silver Bells

We love this darker silver skirt with the lace-up black top and matching jacket! Give silver a chance to shine instead of choosing its more obvious sister, gold.


12. Holiday Crop Tops

We love these winter-worthy crop tops! With sheer lace sleeves, this shirt is perfect with a matching high-waisted pencil skirt, black pants or denim flares and a chunky heel.

13. June Cleaver Meets Hard Femme

This dark plaid dress is to die for with its velvet Peter Pan collar. We love how they’ve styled it with the most adorable vintage Christmas pins. The green-based plaid is a less obvious holiday glam choice, and great because of that.

14. Knit Dress

The knit dress is literally one of the easiest things that a woman or femme could own. They are the perfect piece for a crisp, minimal look or the ideal backdrop for statement jewelry, a bold scarf, lacy hosiery or graphic printed purse. Worn with bare legs, over hosiery or over casual tights, you can make these dresses work for just about anything. Stock up in several colors, but always have a basic black ready to go.


15. Simply Dapper

This simple, dapper look is foolproof cool. Pair a quality black tie with a crisp white button-up and a slim-fitting, fine-gauged charcoal or black v-neck sweater (preferably cashmere) for the look. For laid-back family events, pair with quality denim. For dressier occasions, wear them with a slim fitting pant in a bold, festive, solid color like red or evergreen.
