FESTIVE AND FUNCTIONAL HOLIDAY WARDROBE
Festive and functional holiday wardrobe

Whether you’re done holiday shopping or realizing time is ticking away, don’t forget to grab yourself something this holiday season. We might not be back in the big party swing, but even a family dinner feels extra special this year—why not wear something special too?

This is an in-between holiday season, which makes it the ideal time to grab some Amaranth Designs for your wardrobe. Pieces that go everywhere are my specialty; I want you to have clothes that are comfortable, functional, and versatile. No one-time wear or annoying zippers to be found!

My website is full of items you can dress up or down, things you can wear at home for holiday brunch (add jeans or leggings) and out for celebratory drinks with friends (pull out the sequins, silk, or pleather!). Plus, if only a few people get to see it this year, these classic designs will work again for years to come.

This bamboo rib knit top is a classic, simple shirt that you can wear everywhere. It works under a blazer for after-work tipples, or with jeans and leather booties for the gift exchange with your book club. The rich teal is an excellent choice for the holidays but will still work in your wardrobe through the spring and summer.

You can take it up just a step with this short-sleeve top, which is elevated by the gathered detail at the shoulders and the keyhole top at the back. But it’s still plenty comfy, and transitions seamlessly from the office to a night out.

Looking for something with long sleeves? This raglan lace tunic is a gorgeous blend of comfortable style and elegant details. You can lean into the flowy style of the top or pop on some sleek leggings as contrast—and still make it work when wrapping up your shopping!

For those who like to live on the wild side all year long, check out the leopard print tunic. Back in October, I mentioned incorporating prints as an easy way to add excitement to your wardrobe, and this is a great way to do just that. Between the neutral colours and the versatile cut, this tunic is the right choice for any occasion.

Even though it’s going to be a low-key holiday, I couldn’t resist creating something with a little sparkle. The sparkle shawl is made in a comfy, cozy navy knit, making it the perfect addition to add some seasonal oomph to any outfit. It’s great for a Zoom games night, or to throw over your jammies for those unexpected FaceTime calls.

And don’t forget a warmer piece—you can look gorgeous in a winter wonderland, too! A wool shacket is a beautiful way to keep cozy and look amazing, and each one is unique. Get in touch to order your own.

Whether you’re planning to keep it casual or find reasons to go formal this holiday, I’m sure the online store has something for you and plenty of folks on your list. Stay safe, and see you in 2022!

That consistency in sizing is even more important in the age of online shopping. There’s nothing quite as frustrating as spending all that time browsing and then waiting for a piece to arrive, only for it to completely disappoint when you put it on.

One of the biggest complaints in fashion today, especially women’s fashion, is how inconsistent sizing can be. Though there is a call to standardize clothing sizes, something tells me it’s going to be a long time before we get there. Vanity sizing has been shifting what classifies as small, medium, or large (or size 10, 12, etc.) for decades, and those ad hoc sizes are emotionally loaded for a lot of shoppers.

Versatility is one of my top design considerations. When I am creating pieces, I want you to be able to wear them anywhere and in all seasons. Amaranth Designs clothing can be dressed up or down, which means your comfortable vacation clothes also look fantastic at the office—which makes it a little easier to pretend you’re on a sunny beach instead of at a desk next to the window, right?
