Tis the season! The holidays are officially upon us and we sat down with ellelauri founder, Liz Rymar, to discuss some of her favorite (and least favorite) holiday trends!

ellelauri: What are the biggest trends for holiday?

Liz: Velvet, winter white, and lace. Our Noel velvet dress is perfect for the holiday and right on trend.

ellelauri: Year after year, there are some things that are notorious with holiday fashion; what is your favorite and what is your least favorite?

Liz: My favorite is sparkle! I love wearing sequins or sparkle around the holidays. Sometimes it is a full sequin dress and other times I incorporate them more subtly such as pairing an outfit with a fun, sparkly shoe. My least favorite would be any time of ugly sweater. I think those are the worst.

ellelauri: Do you have any tips for transforming plain clothes into a festive holiday outfit?

Liz: Add a sparkly sequin blazer! Our Colette blazer is perfect! You can also add a red scarf, a metallic shoe, or sapphire jewels.

ellelauri: What is your favorite piece for holiday that is currently in the store?

Liz: It’s so hard to choose just one! We have so many amazing pieces right now!
