Ready for the Holidays

Lace dress, $59, Autumn and Avery Teardrop earrings, $20, Vestique

For cozying up to the fire, trimming the tree or hosting holiday parties, red is your go-to color to make an impact this season.

Thoughtful layers
Pare down the heavy layering seen on designer runways (think puffy overcoat, turtlenecks and maxi skirts) to sleek and chic options that work for North Carolina temps. Moto leggings under a swingy wool vest (left) provide all the cover and none of the bulk.
