With Christmas fast approaching, Francisco revealed her list of holiday must-haves to get through this busy time of year looking sharp and in season. Whether it’s an office party or a family celebration, the blogger behind The Style House and editor-at-large of Real Style magazine has got you covered.

1) A statement clutch. “Something shiny, bright and/or sparkly can add just the right amount of festivity to an otherwise simple outfit,” Francisco says.

2) A great coat. “Outerwear is often forgotten but it’s the first impression and should be chosen with more consideration than an afterthought,” Francisco says. “If it’s a second coat, chosen as an occasion piece, I suggest a versatile but surprising hue like red or cobalt.”

3) A tux jacket. “This piece is a cool and sexy alternative to the little black dress. Thrown over a dress or worn with trousers, a tux is an easy solution to holiday dressing.”

4) Sequins. “A blouse, a dress or pants, a chic sequined piece is an instant dose of holiday cheer.”
