Chicos Holiday Collection

My Outfit

I’m loving this look for all sorts of holiday events.  It brings the sparkle and the glamour, but the casual vibe of adding funky pearl-embellished jeans and the rock-and-roll vibe of the velvet zebra jacket, totally ups the cool factor, right?!  Want something more formal? Just switch the jeans to black pants or a black skirt.

The Pieces

Embossed Zebra-Print Velvet Jacket

Classic tailoring with an elevated tonal print, this sharp jacket will be the star of the show!  The length is just perfect!  (Available in petite too.)

Ribbed Lurex Shine Turtleneck

The classic turtleneck gets an upgrade with COOLMAX wicking technology to draw moisture away from your skin, as well as festive metallic accents!

Faux-Pearl Embroidered Girlfriend Ankle Jeans

The So Slimming front panel is the secret to keep you looking smooth no matter how much holiday indulging you’ve been doing!  The faux-pearl encrusted hems bring all the luxe attitude!

Short Simulated Crystal Meghan Pendant Necklace

Custom designed exclusively for Chico’s, this handcrafted beauty brings the sparkle and glamour to any outfit!  (Already planning another look for this necklace! What do you think of jeans and a white tee with a moto jacket for an edgier look?)

Simulated Crystal Sparkle Deco Chandelier Earrings

Another handcrafted Chico’s exclusive, these art deco inspired chandelier earrings will look amazing with so many outfits.

Faux-Pearl Genesis Magnetic Bracelet

And still another treasure from the exclusive Chico’s collection, this bracelet makes a chic and elegant statement.
