Happy Holidays, everyone! With Christmas rapidly approaching, what will you be wearing this holiday season? Now that winter has arrived, adding comfy layers of clothing should be on your Christmas list! Here are a few knit pieces we love.
The Roxy Cozy Up scarf is perfect for this cold brisk weather. Forget that thin sleek silk scarf you purchased last month, the double dare provides the comfort and warmth that is much needed when the temperature drops below 40. Not only is the double dare just as cute as the buttons on its sleeves but it is also affordable. Perfect for the shopper on a budget!
Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the winter holiday madness known for being the most stressful time of the year. For a majority of women, a big part of that stress is often related to choosing the right look for holiday get-togethers. Dressy or casual? Clutch or bucket bag? A sweater dress with tights or a blouse and trousers? Maybe scrape the whole thing and get a new look from head-to-toe? And this is before we even throw accessories into the mix!
'Tis the season to celebrate for all of the Glam Damn It readers! With the holidays approaching and our social calendars filled with a flurry of events, having that 'perfect' dress is a definite fashion must. As you visit your favorite dress shop that burning question always seems to remain -- should I opt for a LBD (little black dress) or amp up my style quotient with a vibrant pop of color?! Luckily for all of the ladies out there in the city, there are so many flattering, stylish and fashion forward choices this season! One is also able to take influences from runways abound for style inspiration from designers like Betsey Johnson or timeless icons, such as Audrey Hepburn. In addition, it's wonderful that high-end celebrity stylists such as Eric Daman of 'Gossip Girl' -- design lines for retailers such as Charlotte Russe. This enables everyone out there to score that high-style look (without the high-life price) and have some green left over to buy that sexy shoe you've been eyeing or a sparkly pair of earrings that makes you feel like a Hollywood siren. Own your look with confidence and a dash of dazzle, baby! Be the life of the party!

You don’t have to spend your summer sailing a luxurious yacht to look like you were. Some of fashion's most beloved designers are all setting sail for an iconic nautical look for Resort 2012. Yves Saint Laurent designer, Stefano Pilati, showcased an elegant collection with sophisticated looks with sailor friendly accents throughout. The Moschino Resort 2012 collection followed suit with tailored navy blazers paired with pops of red on a mostly clean white palette. Whether it’s the sleek high waist, button adorned trousers or the embroidered anchors, we certainly cannot wait to cruise away with these designs.

Cara: 21 years old
We spotted Cara having lunch at Bryant Park and absolutely adored her outfit! Cara is wearing a vintage cardigan paired with a American Apparel oversized tank. Her floral leggings are Betsey Johnson, and her shoes are Dolce Vita. She accessorizes this look with a Miu Miu hangbag, vintage ring, and awesome A-morir sunglasses! We must say her diamond encrusted sunglasses definately make this outfit!
