Home for the Holidays with Kaitlynn Carter Jenner & More

Nov 22, 2018

Whether you are traveling via plane, train or automobile, ‘tis the season to spend the holidays with your loved ones near and far. But naturally, squeezing your entire wardrobe into a carry-on can be a feat—especially with a jam-packed schedule that can range from meeting the parents (for the first time) to an early morning Black Friday shopping spree (#priorities). 

To assist, we caught up with three women on the move to learn about their holiday traditions and get six outfit suggestions to survive the long weekend in major style. See what they had to say below + shop their exclusive looks.

Who: Nicole Gibbons, Founder & CEO of Clare

Holiday Style Mantra: “When I’m spending the holidays at home I’m with family, so my attire tends to be more casual versus festive. My mantra is always cozy and comfy! The holidays usually involve running around after all of my nieces and nephews, plus helping in the kitchen, so comfort is key! I love a soft, cashmere sweater in a bold color like red, paired with a comfy pair of jeans as a default.” 

Favorite Family Tradition: “I’ve started a tradition of hosting a holiday breakfast at my home and preparing a waffle bar brunch with homemade waffles. We have all the delicious toppings you could think of!”

Here's what Nicole suggests wearing for a night out with friends or running last-minute holiday errands:

Get The Look: Cushnie Cady Cold Shoulder Top, Frame Le High Embellished Jeans + Sergio Rossi Milano Stretch Booties

Get The Look: Alexander Wang Engineered Sleeve Sweater, Canada Goose Elwin Parka, L’agence High Line Jeans + Rag & Bone Cannon Moto Boots

Who: April Uchitel, President of Violet Grey

Holiday Style Mantra: “It is all about cozy (home this year is Colorado). I am not a 'sweats' person, but I prefer my comfiest ripped jeans, a huge chunky sweater, and always a bold red lip!”

Favorite Family Tradition: “We always bake and decorate Christmas cookies but everyone always  loses steam—and I end up alone it the kitchen placing Red Hots on the snowman's eyes alone.”

Here's what April suggests wearing to Friendsgiving or a family reunion dinner: 

Get The Look: Ksubi Chillz Oversized Denim Jacket, Enza Costa Henley Baseball Top, GRLFRND Carla Jeans + Attico Betta Cross-Embossed Boots
