We’re officially IN the holiday season! This time of year is so exciting, especially with fashion! This is the time of year for those ‘extra’ pieces you keep in your closet – aka those sequin and feather tops and dresses. Y’all know I am all about a wardrobe full of versatile staples, but I also believe we should have a couple ‘extras’ in our closet for the holidays and special occasions.
One place you can find great wardrobe staples and special holiday pieces is at Nitsa’s Apparel in Winston! Nitsa’s was started by a young woman, Nitsa Bambalis, who fled a war-torn country to come to the United States during the 1950s – talk about an inspiration! She officially opened Nitsa’s Apparel in 1964 and with the help of her family, they have been thriving ever since. When you shop at Nitsa’s, you’ll find a wide variety of styles from casual to business, special occasion and even bridal. Their bridal shop is absolutely stun-ning! With the help of their amazing staff, here are some looks we put together!
This first outfit is great for work, holiday shopping or a “girls who lunch” scenario. Although it’s short sleeve, it’s perfect for winter in the south (because let’s be real – it’s just like Forest said, you never know what you’re gonna get). BUT, with a top like this if it is a cooler day, you can always add a basic long sleeve white tee or button down underneath. I paired this top with dark wash denim; however, you could also wear black denim or slacks and add a black or leopard flat, bootie, or heel!
This next look says “Hi, I’m the SHE-E-O” because you will be feeling like the boss you are (as you deserve to feel in every outfit). This dress is one for the office, church or holiday events. Side note: the vegan leather makes it one of those ‘extra’ type pieces I referred to earlier; however, it’s also one that can be worn all fall and winter long. We styled it with this gorgeous suede duster, but it can also be worn without this piece as well. The duster would also look great with a long sleeve crew neck, v-neck, button-down or lightweight turtleneck and jeans.
While neutrals are fantastic and offer a wide range of outfits, a pop of color is great for your wardrobe as well. I absolutely love this pink sweater. We decided to pair it with a wide-leg glen plaid pant and sneakers for a more casual look. You could change out the sneakers for a pair of black heels, flats, or loafers to dress it up a bit more. If you’re like me, I’m always cold, so layering is clutch for me. Adding a white button down under the pink sweater is also a great way to level up this look!
Another vegan leather dress? Yes, please. Sign us up! I love this one for a couple reasons. One, because it is a gorgeous chocolate brown and two, the scrunch detail is unique, flattering and helps give some shape to you in the dress. We paired it with this beautiful coat, that is reversible and versatile, which we love! I am wearing it with the fur on the inside and suede on the outside, but you could easily switch it up to add a little sass to almost any outfit.
Along with fabulous and one-of-a-kind apparel and bridal gowns, Nitsa’s Apparel also has a prom salon and a skincare boutique, as well as a lovely and helpful staff. They also have a beautiful collection of jewelry, purses, travel bags, and other accessories. If you have never shopped at Nitsa’s or it’s been a while since you’ve been, this is your sign to go!
