Here are some highlights for holiday:

Velveteen + Leatherette. The skinny, crop and wide leg are getting a holiday lift this season with sleek leather and velveteen finishes. These classic materials are a great foundation to any party outfit. Soften your leatherette with a plush cashmere sweater in winter white or dusty blush pink, OR put-the-icing-on-the-cake by mixing a silk blouse with your velveteen skinnies.
