As we’re in the midst of the holiday season, shopping for yourself can seem a bit underwhelming. We’ve included our favorite items from four fashionable Austin stores to carry you through the holiday season with distinctive style — on a variety of budgets. Or, let's be honest, adding items to your very own wish list is never a bad idea.
At Aro, we're obsessing over velvet. You can’t go wrong with these high-waisted emerald green velvet pants with brass buttons. Pair them with a textured black top from Storm + Marie, and you’ll be set for the mistletoe! We also have our eyes on the Flora Lily long pantsuit and hand stud earrings from Mary Macgill.
Byron & Blue
Looking for something that’s one-of-a-kind with serious sparkle? Check out the pop-up from Pieceology Vintage at Byron and Blue. Shop pieces like this '70s black and blue sequined blouse, a metallic tunic sweater that would pair well with almost anything, and a suede blazer to instantly pull a look together. Try on an array of pieces in person this month at Byron & Blue to find the perfect fit.
Garment Modern and Vintage
When it comes to making a statement, Garment is a must. This 1990s gown from Christian Dior (designed by John Galliano) is a serious showstopper. For New Year’s Eve, this '80s dress from Chloe is a dream and a '70s crochet dress is perfect for someone aiming for a more ethereal look. And, if you’re in a pinch, this '60s sea foam beaded top could pair just as well with a long skirt as it would with denim, or throw this gorgeous Fred A. jacket over just about anything and you’ll be set.
On top of some of the coolest clothing pieces in town, Olive is a must-visit for shoes and accessories. When it comes to holiday parties or your own wish list, make a statement with the Intentionally Blank Franz heel, Fay Andrada Pari earrings, or the wasabi calf Sophie slide from Maryam Nassir Zadeh.
