3 Cute and Comfy Holiday Looks

We all want to look our best for those holiday dinners, but comfort is also very important. It's a time to indulge in yummy food and fun cocktails! My go-to tends to be skinny jeans with some cute boots and a nice sweater. If you have a holiday dinner to attend with friends or perhaps a significant other, here are some cute ways, featuring Yoins, to dress up a little while still feeling comfortable and with plenty of breathing room for the yummy dinner!

It's so easy to create a pretty holiday look if you start with a fashion blouse for women. A nice blouse or knit top can go with anything from jeans or leggings to dressy pants or a skirt. So you can easily take the look from casual to dressy, especially if you add on some jewelry.


If you practically live in leggings, this long-sleeve asymmetrical hem top is perfect! It's nice and roomy, but has a nice detail with the side buttons. And you can dress it up a bit with a long pendant necklace.

Simple Summer Table Decor


Simple white dinnerware is a must for the modern hostess. You can mix and match it with colors, you can dress it up for a formal place setting, and you can mix it with casual elements for a low-key dinner. Williams Sonoma has shown two beautiful and simple ways to style their Victorian-inspired white porcelain dinner set, and each one is perfect for the season.

Yellow is of course the perfect color to incorporate into a summer dinner party. Yellow paired with that particular shade of blue creates a French country feel that is both elegant and casual. Whenever I want to make a place setting less formal, I love to use natural-looking fabrics and elements, like a woven charger plate. A small bunch of fresh yellow flowers pulls the look together. If you wanted the napkin on top of the setting, use a light blue ribbon to tie the flowers onto each napkin.


You don't always have to have a charger for a formal place setting. As long as you have a salad and dessert plate or a bowl stacked on top of the dinner plate, your place setting can look just as elegant if you use embellished white dinner ware. A few additional elements like stemware, a place card holder, and fresh flowers or candles will elevate the whole look. It's the perfect place setting for a semi-formal dinner at home.

I really love the look of the light blue with the light apple green pictured above. I've used this color palette for summer entertaining before; it's a great way to incorporate fresh produce into the centerpiece. Nestle fresh artichoke hearts and limes around candles and flowers along the center of the table.

  1. Admittedly, I'd get lost figuring out which fork I'm supposed to use.
