Here at Olsen, we love the holiday season – for us, nothing quite compares to special time spent with loved ones. This time of the year brings us plenty of opportunities to gather, celebrate & enjoy quality time with friends and family before the busy start of a new year.This love of the festive season spans countries to each of our Olsen offices, from Germany to Poland to Canada. In this blog post, you’ll meet Jenny from our headquarters in Hamburg, Kasia from our office in Warsaw and Heather from our office in Toronto, each of whom will share what they’ll be wearing this holiday to a range of occasions. From family get-togethers, to office parties to dressy nights out, Olsen has us covered with versatile separates made with the holiday season in mind. Happy reading – we hope you’ll find inspiration with looks you love for your upcoming holiday events!
Jenny’s Look for a Casual Family CelebrationFor me, the most beautiful part of the holidays is celebrating Christmas with my family. Of course, we hope the goose doesn’t burn in the oven, the board games don’t turn into a heated dispute & the Christmas tree doesn’t go down… 😉 – but even if those things happen, Christmas at home is still fun, special and cozy! When spending the holiday with my family, I need my outfit to be cozy as well. I look for pants that are super comfortable for lots of sitting (…and a full belly after dinner!) and a cuddly sweater (here, I picked our Teddy Jacket which is both cuddly and chic). I also like to add a dash of something festive, and I think the red polka dots on this blouse are the perfect touch – plus, the flowy viscose style adds a little bit of elegance while keeping the look very comfy. This is my favourite look for a family get-together – I hope you love it for your family gatherings, too!
Kasia’s Look for an Office Holiday Party Christmas is my favorite time of the year! It’s a great opportunity to have many wonderful family events, but I always look forward to the festive corporate occasions, too! It’s a great opportunity to take a break from work as a team and enjoy celebrating together. Here in Poland, our team celebrates by visiting one of our favorite restaurants in Warsaw. Surrounded by the restaurant’s magical holiday decorations, we have a wonderful time bonding and sharing a holiday meal. I’m a big fan of colourful accents, so this year I am going to wear a shirt with fancy tie-neck in my favourite on-trend honey colour. I’m not afraid of color, and I love that this yellow shade add brightness and elegance to a look and complements my blonde hair. I’m going to pair it with sleek black trousers in a classic silhouette, and a jacket with metallic trim to add a professional chic finishing touch to my look. Who knows – maybe we will stop somewhere for a drink after dinner? In this case, I’ll take my favorite lipstick out of my handbag and be ready for a martini in a dash! 😉 Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
Heather’s Look for a Dressy Night OutI love so many aspects of the holiday season – the décor, the food & the cozy nights in are just the tip of the iceberg! Another thing I’m particularly fond of is the opportunity to get dressed up for a fancy night out to ring in the New Year! Throughout most of the year I dress quite casually, so each December I get excited to pick something fancy that I’ll feel great wearing. This year, I’m going to a nice restaurant with friends followed by celebrating the countdown with champagne downtown. I’m planning to wear this gorgeous satiny blouse with an optical dot print (I love classic prints like polka dots!) tucked into this tailored pencil skirt with satin trim at the waist and a perfectly placed slit. I feel so chic wearing this outfit with my patent leather pumps, and on the big night I’m going to wear my hair up with statement earrings to add some extra glamour to the look. I can’t wait! From me & mine to you and yours – have a safe and very happy New Year!
Cheers to 2020!
