Even though the holidays will look very different this year for all of us, I, for one, plan on doing everything I can to make our at-home celebrations still feel just as special & memorable. Part of instilling that sense of normalcy is getting dressed like you would if you were still going out & mixing those styles with comfy pieces you can truly live in. Today I’m sharing 3 looks with you from Express’ Cyber Monday Sale that meet this criteria & everything is 50% off right now + free shipping!
Whether you’re cooking in the kitchen, curling up with a new book or lounging by the fire, this cozy duster cardigan is the ideal outer layer for at-home activities. It basically looks & feels like a luxe robe, so you can throw it on over loungewear, pajamas or with denim & a healthy dose of sequins. This has a very roomy fit, so I definitely recommend sizing down! There are limited sizes left, but if you’re looking for something similar, try this, this, this or this.
I’m a big fan of Express camisoles because they fit so well and the quality is amazing (I own 4 of them!). If you’re looking for some new ones to layer under jackets, blazers or cardigans this season, this sale is the perfect time to scoop them up for less. My top picks include this satin cami, this lace-trim cami, this velvet cami & this reversible cami (a great basic).
I’ve always had the hardest time finding special occasion dresses that have long sleeves (which is a MUST in the winter months). So I was thrilled to come across this satin midi that is basically my dream dress – it has some serious “Old Hollywood” vibes and would flatter any figure. This would be perfect for an at-home date night, cocktails & dancing in the living room or a New Years’ celebration – it also comes in black, a pale pink and a pretty grayish silver…and it’s under $45!
Sometimes this type of fabric can be very wrinkle-prone and have static cling issues, but I didn’t have that problem at all. I went with my usual size and the fit was perfect. One thing to note: there is no closure at the neckline and it is a deep v cut, so if you have a larger bust, you may want to secure with fashion tape, a safety pin or just wear a lacy bralette underneath. I added this faux fur coat for a little extra dose of glamour (also comes in white or burgundy & it’s only $45!).
Other long sleeve dresses worth checking out during this sale: this velvet wrap dress, this cable knit sweater dress, this tiered maxi dress (love the spicy chocolate color!), this sequin belted dress and this embellished mockneck dress.
I’m so sad that this gorgeous embellished sweater is almost sold out because it’s even more stunning in person! I think it’s nice to have one or two standout pieces like this that you can put on when you want to feel a little extra special. I’ll keep my eye on it & let you know if it gets fully restocked – until then, check out this sequin sweater, this embellished sweater jacket or this pearl embellished sweater dress.
More statement styles I’m loving that are perfect for the upcoming holidays: this sequin wrap skirt , these velvet pants, this bejeweled button cardigan (bought & love!). this rhinestone headband (more colors here & here) and this tulle neck sweater.
In my opinion, stretchy jeans are the only way to go when you’re staying at home. This new line boasts the style of a jean with the comfort of sweats…and I can confirm that they really are! I liked these so much that I got them in two colors – they run true to size, hold everything in & stretch to move with you and they’re only $35 right now! These come in short, regular & long so you can get a perfect fit. See more of my favorites from this huge sale in the scrolling bar below!
