LuLus Holly Days Blog Week Header2Coats“Tis the season to bring out your best dresses for holiday parties, family fun, and ringing in the new year; but unless you live someplace extra sunny, the chill may try to chase away your perfectly planned outfit. Thankfully, there is a solution! We’re here to help you discover some of the very best coats to enhance your frocks (instead of hiding them)!

Take your dress an edgy new route with The Wanderer Black Vegan Leather Jacket! The leather look is totally in, and keeping with classic black maintains an upscale look, while infusing your outfit with a fun and sexy vibe. Trust us, you’ll get tons of compliments with this fashion-forward option!

Go for a pop of color with the Cold Remedy Red Coat! If your holiday soiree calls for a LBD or LWD (as so many of them do!) then jazz up your look by choosing this colorful coat. It will help you stand out without compromising the classy ensemble you so carefully put together.

What’s in a name? Everything! Frock coats are simply perfect for warming up your dressiest dresses. A frock coat like the Fur Give and Fur Get Tan Frock Coat keeps it classy, while showing off your shape. The faux fur lining takes this one above and beyond for an elegant look we highly recommend!

CelebrityIt Girl: Mae Whitman

Mae WhitmanActing: Mae Whitman made her film debut at age six, and has been lighting up the screen ever since! We loved her as Anne Veal in Arrested Development, and are thrilled that she was a part of bringing The Perks of Being a Wallflower to the big screen. She has recently been spotted hanging out with Lena Dunham, giving us hope that someday we’ll see her in a episode or two of Girls!

Get Animated: Mae has also lent her voice to all kinds of animated endeavors! From a whole host of side characters on Family Guy, to the voice of the title character in Disney’s animated Tinker Bell films, she’s got quite the range. She has even provided her voice for video games. How fun is that?!

Hidden Talents: Acting isn’t the only place Mae hits a high note. She has shared her singing talents on albums ranging from Christmas compilations, to crooning alongside rock band Fake Problems. She’s also shown off her modeling talents in lookbooks for her designer pal Rachel Antonoff. All this awesomeness raises the question: what can’t Mae do!?
