Holiday Chic on the Cheap

In our series, "Early Holiday on the Cheap," style expert Katrina Szish showed ways you and your family can dress chic for the holidays on a budget.

Trendy Hipsters
Tips for this look:
• The little black dress gets a major update with tulle and bows.
• The skinny suit and tie has officially made its comeback. If you remember only one thing it is to keep everything in proportion.
• Do something unexpected: wear brightly colored tights, or sneakers with your suit.

Fashion Forward Family
Tips for this look:
• This is a sexy and body conscious look without being too revealing-you are showing off your style while still being sexy.
• Accessories always make the statement-if you don't usually go for bold accessories, this is the time to do it. Leave the pearls at home and go for a pair of oversized earrings.
• During the holidays, it's important to keep children looking like kids. So you can do that by mixing something dressy with something more casual, like a chunky knit hat.
