Cozy sweaters, statement boots and sparkly accessories are part of the holiday fashion. With all the soirées, New Year’s parties and loads of family gatherings, it can be hard to find just the right look for each event. Karla Birbragher, stylist to the stars and wife to television host Jorge Bernal, partnered with Target to pull together a few of her favorite celebratory looks.

“I like shopping at Target for holiday looks because not only do they have all the latest trends, but the prices are incredible. I can shop for my outfit, my husband’s and my kids’ all at the same time,” she said. “And when you’re a working mom, time is of the essence!”

Find below Karla Birbragher’s holiday guide to fabulously festive fashion:

  • Rockin’ Red

“Red is always a favorite for the holidays but this year, take your look to the next level by mixing and matching different shades of red! For my ladies, I paired a floral duster kimono jacket layered over a satin cami with crepe jogger pants, a tassel necklace and a ruffle heel, making it fun and trendy. This outfit works great for a family gathering. It’s stylish, edgy and also very comfortable, which is important if you are running around after the little ones,” Karla said.

She added: “For my fellas, I pulled together a plaid button down shirt with a bomber jacket and medium wash skinny jeans. I recommend adding a classic suede boot to pull this look together.”

  • Holiday Frills and Thrills

“The second look I styled is perfect for any holiday party, whether it be for work or with your girlfriends! Velvet is one of the hottest trends this season and this velvet slip dress is THE holiday choice. Target offers dresses with exaggerated details and fun new prints that can pair with any outfit this holiday season. I finished this outfit with a faux fur stolepom pom drop earrings, and white booties to tie in the look and give it that elegant touch,” she said.

“For men, I love monochromatic outfits. The green on green look I styled is everything! You can easily achieve this look by pairing a twill button down shirt with a chino blazer and chino pants. Step up your shoe game by adding a wingtip boot that will keep you warm and fashionable at the same time.”

  • Comfort Meets Style

“Some holiday events—like low-key family gatherings or holiday shopping sprees—call for outfits that are comfortable and cute. I’ve been eyeing this chunky cowlneck tunic that pairs perfectly with chic velvet leggingsembellished mules and fun accessories.”

Karla also styled an equally comfy look for the guys: “The athleisure trend is still going strong, so I channeled that style into this laid-back look, using Goodfellow & Co from head to toe! I love how the sage green bomber jacket and trendy white tennis shoes elevate a simple jogger and t-shirt combo.”
