Holiday Outfits: Going Beyond the Party

New Year’s Eve means letting go of 2017 and ringing in 2018. How does one dress for such a momentous occasion?

“The holidays are a time where I want to look and feel a little more sophisticated. However, many of us struggle to incorporate this element into our existing wardrobes.” – Wishes & Reality

The key to loving your closet is simplifying your wardrobe with staple outfits and stand-out timeless pieces. When you have clothes you readily wear and love, its easy to make minor adjustments to your outfit when going from the desk to the dance floor in a moment’s notice!

“Having great, basic pieces can really simplify your life and your wardrobe. Simply mixing things up and changing your hair style or makeup can make a huge difference.” – Rebecca Lately

Machine washable clothing may be a preference, but its almost a necessity when you have so many parties happening in such a short time period! Knowing you look fabulous in the perfect party outfit can help ease your stress so you can shine your brightest! MISOOK prides itself on pieces that transcend seasons and go beyond everyday staples. When doubling up for desk duty then date night, MISOOK womenswear puts you in the driver’s seat so you look sharp wherever your day takes you. Modern fashion is also all about comfortable versatility.

The Closet Crush

Take our Gold Sequin Jacket. An obligatory shimmering stunner perfect for the holiday season, this staple jacket has a twist – the reversible sequins add a playful touch to every outfit. It’s the perfect piece for grab-and-go style – you can wear it out dinner or toss it over your favorite flattering LBD for a sophisticated soiree look without the stress! While you can never go wrong with a classic, Misook’s attention to high-quality details gives your staple wardrobe item a refresh. Fashion blogger Alina of the Closet Crush shows off her shimmering sequin jacket for a glamorous look that’s sure to last beyond the holiday party fare.

Misook Faux Fur Vest

The new year is also a time of learning what works and letting go of old limits. In today’s world, fashion has no age or time limits! Nothing is more fashionable than a classic, flattering statement piece. Take this MISOOK Faux Fur Vest for example, a quality piece that isn’t going to self-destruct after a winter. Since the faux fur doesn’t wrap around the entire piece, its warm enough to wear all winter yet cool enough to wear as the weather begins to warm up again. It’s a statement companion to everything from basic black bottoms to your favorite jeans and boots for your fiercest holiday look. MISOOK is about heightened sophistication that surpasses fast-fashion trends. Finding a piece that you love and fits you well is worth the investment. Put yourself in a the holiday mood on a day-to-day basis with MISOOK; shop pieces you can wear all year round and really get your money’s worth.

“All of the pieces I’ve tried have been so comfortable and easy to wear, but they are feminine and make me look perfectly put together. All of the knitwear pieces are just perfect for the office, and I’m always looking for more double duty pieces that I can wear to the office and out also. This vest and silk blouse definitely fits the bill.” – Walking in Memphis in High Heels

Comfortable Thanksgiving Outfits That Don’t Sacrifice Style

Thanksgiving is a time for mingling and eating; part of the holiday season of conversation and cuisine. The age-old dilemma arises: what does one wear? On the one hand, being a holiday centered around food, you’ll want to be comfortable in clothes that give a little; whilst on the other hand, being a holiday centered around family and friends, you’ll want to look chic. Add a multitude of environments into the mix — dinner at your family home, a trendy restaurant, a country club, or your in-laws’ — and a stylish holiday outfit for a food-filled frenzy becomes somewhat of a paradox. How does one make a fashion statement while being able to fill your plate with seconds (and all the Thanksgiving leftovers)? Read on to see our fashion influencer round-up of equally eye-catching and forgiving holiday ensembles. Whether spending the holiday at home cooking, dining at a restaurant, or attending a country club soirée, MISOOK is up to the task.

Classic, Cool, & Crisp: White Button-Up

A white button-up shirt is the definition of a wardrobe staple. It’s classic, comfortable, and can be worn with basics, black tie, and everything in between. With a tailored shape, a white button-up blouse elevates distressed denim and conservative suiting alike. It epitomizes a true wear-anywhere closet staple. No wonder why a white button-up paired with a black pencil skirt or sharp pant is the unofficial uniform for so many of us!

A white button-up is one of our wardrobe’s most versatile pieces, not only because of the luxury of pairing beautifully with everything, but it can also be worn and styled in a multitude of different ways. From tucked in to let loose, tied in a knot, or layered underneath a dress or sweater, you can’t go wrong with this year-round essential.

Take a note from Julie Harbour of Stylish Paradox and create a conservative yet edgy style using the classic white blouse. We love how she took our Stretch Cotton Hi-Neck Blouse and finished it off with a belt to accentuate her figure. Shout out to the MISOOK Boot Skirt with Silver Studs making a reappearance too (see other looks too from our Studs for All Seasons post!)

Versatility for Fall

The definition of versatility is: “having many uses or applications.” Fall fashion is all about versatility. The perfect fall piece is one that can be used in many different ways for many different temperatures.  In the fashion world, a piece must transition from day to night and from season to season. Nothing showcases versatility more than seeing multiple women style the same item to create several, uniquely different, looks.

When you pair MISOOK’s Faux Suede Moto Jacket the result is a statement piece that is as comfortable as it is head-turning. This piece has the luxurious appeal of vegan suede paired with the rich texture of ribbed knit. This fall fashion must-have elevates an iconic silhouette with snap accents and zip-up closures. This versatile jacket complements everything from tailored black pants to distressed jeans, taking you from workweek to weekend in style.


“The most beautiful faux suede jacket from MISOOK, will definitely be one of my essential wardrobe pieces through fall. I LOVE the easy to push-up sleeves for warmer days. And this neutral color makes it so simple to go with nearly everything in my closet! Versatile??? YES, very!” – Chic Over 50

Knitwear on the Go: From Wash to Weekend

We all love to travel, but it is not as stress-free as it once was. The security lines, taking off your jacket and shoes, and the occasional delays — it can be stressful.

There is no need to worry about an unexpected spill from other passengers or the general toll traveling takes on garments.

MISOOK & Matisse

MISOOK & Matisse

MISOOK and Matisse have a key commonality: a sense of rhythm and line. One can see this energy bounced back and forth between Matisse’s works of art and MISOOK’s wearable art. Alongside Picasso, Matisse is regarded as one of the most influential artists in modern art for his wide and far-reaching contributions to painting and sculpture. Everyone, from Calvin Klein to Thakoon and Yves Saint Laurent to Dior has been influenced by Matisse’s strong compositions. Let’s take a look back at how Matisse came to be one of the most influential modern artists of contemporary fashion design.
Fashion inspired by Art Matisse

Renowned French painter, sculptor and print market Henri Matisse was born in 1869. Matisse’s early work was painted in the Fauvist style — characterized by very bright, bold colors, and wild-expressionist brushstrokes. Fauve in French means “wild beast.” Best known for his delicate yet precise line and depiction of the human form, Matisse was lauded not only for his paintings but also for his work on paper.

Beautiful in Blue

Beautiful in Blue

To be put simply, Ad Reinhardt’s monochrome paintings are nothing short of sublime. MISOOK has chosen to introduce several jackets and tank tops this season which is a subtle nod to the historic painting of Ad Reinhardt.

The subtle and radiant paintings from his late blue series are comprised of mostly colorful and symmetrical geometric forms. Through the use of a specific painting technique, the surface of Ad Reinhardt’s monochrome paintings are incredibly delicate. Another result of this artist’s technique is shown in his paintings, which are simultaneously soft and dense — glowing with brilliance uncommon to the ordinary painted surface. Glowing with brilliance is a mission shared also by MISOOK as a representative in ready-to-wear knitwear that is flattering for every woman of all shapes and sizes.
