This year I am finally doing it! I am hosting the first Hanukkah candle lighting at my home. Through the eight days of Hanukkah, Jews all over the world celebrate at the homes of family and friends. The first evening, however, is the main celebration and so every year there’s this overhanging question and the “persistence contest” that comes with it: who will be hosting? Usually my planning is so last minute that I tend to just give up on it, but not this year!

This year Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will overlap for the first time since 1888, and everyone is very excited about it. Unlike other times, I let myself get carried away in this excitement. These two holidays represent two different and complementary aspects of my life: being an Israeli and being an American.

No matter the reason for celebration, just bringing friends and family together always makes me want to look my best (at least as good as last year). And I want it to look effortless and easy. I’m sure that many of you share this feeling. But this begs the question: what do I wear? Something fun, not too complicated, must be comfortable, better be elegant… you get it.

So, I went ahead and picked my favorites for this season! Here are my five easy holiday looks that any of us can pull off while feeling and looking our best.

Look #1 – A Touch of Color

Add color to your look with our Soft Coat.My go-to color is black, but even I like to throw in a pop of color to catch the eye. Take it off, and you’re back at the simplicity of the outfit underneath.

Look #2 – Simply Chic

I love it when clothes are versatile. Our Lambada Jacket can act as outerwear or a sweater. It can easily be worn with any style of pants or leggings and comes in a variety of colors. Effortless statement making, always a winner item.

Look #3- Wildly Sophisticated

The Agada Top and Kabaret Pants are the perfect combination for sophisticated chic. With animal prints trending this season you are sure to make a presence with this top. The pants, a versatile wardrobe staple, has a unique silhouette to it: funky and classic, you can it through the seasons, day or night, dressed up or down.
