How to Wear It: Festive Finds
Now that we’ve enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinners (and leftovers), what better way to celebrate than with some retail therapy! If you know ELOQUII, you know we love our festive finds. This year, it’s no exception, we have seven days of exciting finds for you to shop and enjoy. We also asked a few of our friends to try on and style these festive looks. Read on to see how they wore it!

Grey V-Neck Sweater
A classic v-neck sweater is definitely a fall/winter closet staple. In fact, I’d love to have one in every color. You can easily layer this cult classic with button-up shirts, suits, turtlenecks, scarves and the list goes on! I also love that you can dress them up or down depending on your personal preferences and style needs. I opted for a dressy twist, I paired this light heather grey rib v-neck sweater with dark wash denim tie waist shorts, slouchy black knee-high faux leather boots— featuring the cutest cone heel BTW. I finished off the entire look with a fabulous soft white double-breasted tweed blazer complete with embellished pearl buttons. This look is perfect for a day out and about, attending a casual get-together with friends and family, and even date night!
Fit notes: This sweater features a relaxed fit. To create definition, I knotted the sweater in the back. Often we see tops styled/knotted in the front. However, knotting them in the back has proved to be a handy trick that allows me to maximize style options for every top in my wardrobe regardless of the cut/fit.
Pink Wrap Tie Sweater
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, ‘Girls just want to wear pink’! I absolutely love the soft pink hue of this wrap tie waist sweater. I paired it with a rich saturated burgundy by way of the “Port Royal” satin trimmed robe blazer & matching wide leg satin cuff trouser. This look is perfection for a day at the office, as well as an evening out after work. The Abba Kitten Heel Bootie in white proved to be the perfect addition, providing style factor + comfort which = WINNING!
Fit notes: This sweater features a relaxed fit. It can be easily layered over another top or worn alone. The material is soft and cozy, yet lightweight.
The Stripe Dress
I wear stripes every which way on every possible opportunity, when I saw this dress I was totally smitten! It was made for stripe lovers like US! The print is bold and eye-catching, I decided to keep accessories at a minimum to allow the dress to stand out on its own. White boots & booties are totally on trend this season, the Abba Kitten Heel Bootie was an excellent match. Babes I love every single aspect of this look, including the fact that you can wear it anywhere and be totally on point! Think work wear, Sunday brunch, happy hour, and family dinners -just to name a few...
Fit notes: This dress fits true to size. It hugs every curve like a dream. The belt size is wide and the length is generous. Scoop this beauty up – you will not regret it!
GEORGETTE — @grownandcurvywoman
One of the reasons I love the holidays is fun festive dressing. ELOQUII’s festive finds will have you covered with pops of color and pizzazz. This year I wanted to incorporate animal prints which is this season’s hottest trend. I’ve been particularly drawn to snake print so these printed Kady Pants were right up my alley. They go perfectly this with this red ruffled cutout sweater. The fun ruffles at the elbow elevates this look to a cool Friendsgiving or Holiday Brunch look.
Tie Waist Tunic
Rounding out my fave ELOQUII Festive Finds is this this tie waist tunic sweater outfit. I have at least three holiday office events next month so I need to find a look that is snazzy yet appropriate for the workplace. To achieve this, I tucked in the tunic sweater into a leopard print midi skirt and wrapped the sweater ties around my waist for a cohesive look. To add a bold pop of color, I included these red Dominique Tall Boots with this outfit.
Sequins, sequins, sequins!
The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without sequins. Sequins can be intimidating so it’s always good to make that item the center of attention. I paired this colorful sequin column skirt with this light pink wrap tie waist sweater. The color of the sweater and accessories keep the skirt as the main focus. I plans to wear this outfit for a sparkly Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner look.
Blue Puff Sleeve Sweater
The first look is inspired by my colorful LA lifestyle. I love bright colors and cobalt blue is no exception. This sweater is easy and comfortable to wear, plus it has a cute puffed sleeve detail that just adds a little extra something to your outfit. It’s one of those pieces you can style so many ways, casually with jeans or with a skirt. I opted for the button front wrap column skirt in plaid and tucked my top in to dress my outfit up a bit. I added the white boots (which I can’t get enough of this season), a bright velvet clutch for an added pop of color and white sunnies to complete my look.
Blush Wrap Sweater
The second look is centered around one of my favorite colors, blush. I love the versatility of this top and could wear this color year round because it pretty much pairs with anything. The wrap style is one of my all time favorite silhouettes because it looks good on just about everyone. I was looking to punch it up a notch, so I tucked my top into this fun print block midi skirt and added my favorite white boots to give it an extra mod vibe. For cooler days, I can easily layer with my white belted moto jacket. I topped off my look with my new obsession, this cute olive bucket bag.
The third look is a bit more laid back every day ensemble that’s both wearable and chic. The best part about this sweater is that it’s so comfortable and pretty much can be thrown over everything. It can easily be worn with denim or trousers or even a layered over a dress. It’s light enough to fit comfortably underneath a bulkier coat but also warm enough to stand on its own. Basically, this sweater will be on constant rotation. Since, I am obsessed with skinny jeans and bodysuit combos (the v-neck bodysuit is a favorite), this seemed like the perfect look for running errands and meeting up with a friend for coffee. I polished off my outfit with my over the knee boots to dress it up a bit and added my favorite black crossbody circle bag.
