I love clothing! I buy a lot of clothing! You were probably not surprised by those statements. But what you might not know is that I am also frugal when it comes to clothing. I’m not talking about price point when I say frugal; I’m talking about being able to wear my clothing in multiple ways. I like to make sure I can wear my holiday clothing even after the holidays to get my money’s worth. So, today I’m going to show you how to wear your holiday clothing in more than one way.

Isn’t this Jeweled Bow-Detailed Sweater gorgeous? I love how the bow with the rhinestone/crystal embellishment makes the sweater so festive and fun, but it doesn’t scream Christmas. You could wear this sweater to work, a business meeting, or anywhere you want to look dressy and elegant. I’m wearing a medium, and I like the way it fits. It is not too tight and not too oversized; it’s just the perfect fit.

Velvet is a fabric that looks perfect for the holidays, but you can also wear it at other times of the year. I have several velvet blazers, and I love wearing them with jeans in the fall because they look so rich and luxurious. I styled this Black Velvet Blazer earlier in the week, and if you want to see how I styled it, you can click here.

These Ponte-Knit Flare Pants look great with the bow sweater. The flare pants have a modern look and are perfect for any time you don’t want to wear jeans. They are super comfortable and look so lovely. I’m wearing my usual size 8, so I think these run true to size.

You can wear these gorgeous Faux Suede Block Heel Sandals all winter long. They look great with pants, jeans, skirts, and dresses, and they are so affordable. These run true to size; I’m wearing my usual size 9. They come in several colors, including metallic silver, in case you need a pair for a special event.

This holiday look is casual and a little sexy looking. You can still look sexy when you’re over 50 without showing a lot of skin.

This Textured Turtleneck Sweater is casual and oversized. Sometimes I want a sweater that doesn’t touch me anywhere, and this one is perfect for that. Who wants to walk around holding in their stomach to keep their lumps and bumps from showing? The black is already sold out, but there are a lot of colors to choose from, so I’m sure you’ll find one you like. Because it does run oversized, you might want to size down if you want a fitted look. I’m wearing a medium, and I like the way it fits.

How do you like this Crushed Velvet Double-Breasted Blazer? Crushed velvet is a little more fun and whimsical than a regular velvet item. This crushed velvet Blazer surprised me; I like it way more than I thought I would! I can’t wait to wear this later this year with a pair of jeans and a graphic tee. I’m wearing a size medium, and it fits me perfectly.

I bought these Black Leather Knee High Boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. These boots look great with leggings, jeans, dresses, etc., and the shaft is plenty of room for my calves. I’m wearing my usual size 9, so these run TTS.

I have a ton of black leggings and a few faux leather ones too. But I couldn’t resist these Black Faux-Suede Leggings from NYDJ. I love NYDJ because they know how to fit a woman’s mature body. I love the luxurious look of these leggings and the softness of the fabric. I never know if I need a medium or a large when ordering leggings, so I ordered a large in this pair, and they are perfect.

What do you think about this CHIC holiday look?

I like items that have some sparkle and shine for the holidays. This oversized Sequin Rib Sweater has enough sparkle to satisfy my desire for bling but not so much that I can’t wear it later in the year. This sweater is just long enough to wear with a pair of leggings, and I think it looks fantastic with this faux leather pair. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me great.

Warm, plush, soft, and cozy! This Faux Fur Plush Jacket is like being wrapped in a big hug.

This soft plush jacket reminds me of my vintage mink stoles. It manages to look elegant and sophisticated, and fun all at the same time.

This item would look great worn with jeans anytime this fall and winter. I’m wearing a large, but I think a medium would fit better.

Do you have a pair of faux leather leggings? When I first saw faux leather leggings years ago, I worried I might be too old to wear this style. I’m so glad I didn’t let my age keep me from trying this fun item. This is an excellent pair if you want to try faux leather leggings. They are priced under $60, which makes them very affordable. I’m wearing a size medium which fits fine, but I think I would prefer sizing up to a large.

Nordstrom is running a Triple Points event, and Nordy Club Members and Cardmembers can earn Triple Points on their Nordstrom purchases from November 9th through November 13th. I like to use this opportunity to purchase my Christmas gifts and get myself a few things I might need. Since Nordstrom is having a Holiday Deals Sale through the 29th, I’ll show you some of my picks. This is a great time to get your shopping done while earning Nordstrom Notes three times as fast.

Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns; it is super convenient. I love trying on clothing in the privacy of my home, but I hate paying for shipping and returns. That is one reason I love shopping at Nordstrom; trying new clothing styles never costs me anything. Nordstrom offers BOPUS (Buy Online Pick Up in Store) and contactless curbside pickup options.

Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective sponsored this post, and I will receive compensation, but the opinions expressed are my own.
