CATO Confident: Holiday Edition!

Hi friends, and Happy Holidays! The time has come for our families to gather together, share the love & make memories to last a lifetime. With that comes a lot of hoopla & surely some nerves about it all, not only because you want to dress to impress but you are also REALLY BUSY and don’t have time to fuss about your outfits too long… Well don’t worry! You’re sure to look your best if you walk in feeling #CATOConfident! In this post, I’ll walk you through a few of my favorite holiday styles, with a bit of a western flair of course! Let’s get this CATO Holiday party started!

First up, a few daytime looks for those days of hanging out but wanting to step it up a notch & throw some style on the more casual events…

Pairing dark wash skinny jeans with tall boots or heels & fun blouses is always a good idea, but adding some extra pizzazz with accessories like a faux fur vest, gorgeous sequined scarf & turquoise?! You bet that pumps it up just perfectly for Daytime during the Holidays!

One of the many things I love about CATO is that they are really good at providing women of all shapes & sizes with versatile, quality pieces that can be mixed & matched & carried through the seasons! Dress them up or down, the options & combinations are limitless!

Now moving on to looks I would put together for those Holiday Evenings, where you want to walk in with a little extra pep in your step, knowing that you look like a million bucks but didn’t spend near that much (and you are COMFORTABLE in the clothes, too!).

Here’s two outfit ideas that I love for any occasion, especially when you are the hostess with the most-est & need looks that are effortlessly chic but also very functional (hello, pants!)…

 – A denim option, switched up with some fun distressed skinnies – 


     – A Party Pants Option, which can be dressed up even more than this very easily with a fun statement jacket or some fringe! – 


So we’ve covered daytime looks & we’ve seen some evening looks with pants, but what about those sassier styles? Well, here you go… Two Takes on a CATO Favorite, the SASSIEST ruffle sleeve dress out there! With some fur, fringe & wild rag western flair too, of course!


Whew! Who’s ready to rock these looks at your next holiday event?! I hope this post has given you some inspiration for any event you have coming up – I promise you’ll love the staple pieces above year round, which is the beauty of CATO! The looks are fun, the pieces are affordable and the style is not seasonal! Mix it up year round & add your own flair to it. Dress in a way that makes you feel your best, remember to smile bright & be #CATOConfident!
