Shop Your Closet: Capsule Wardrobe Holiday Outfits

The last several days, I have been looking constantly for holiday leggings and "cute" ugly Christmas sweaters. I don't have time to be looking for these items, and I don't want to spend much on them, but I keep seeing such cute outfits that involve snowflake sweaters, fair isle prints, reindeer, and more. I had convinced myself that I "needed" these items to create festive outfits. After finding nothing at two more stores tonight, I decided to make up a Polyvore set using items similar to ones I already own to create some festive holiday looks. I did a range of looks from casual to more dressy and I think I have some great ideas for outfits for the next few days.
