I am GenXWoman, hear me ROAR!

Celebrating the Bridge Generation

The hard-working, innovative, independent, and badass GenXWoman!

Even though things may be different this year there’s nothing to say you can’t still get your glam on and have some fun! As we wind down 2020 let’s go out with some sparkle and make the the best of our style for the holiday! Here are my top holiday outfit ideas for the formidable Gen X woman.


Sequins are such a no brainer for me around this time of year.  Who doesn’t want to be sparkly and fabulous?  I cram as many sequin outfits in as I possibly can!  For some it may seem a little “extra” but there’s always the option of some modest beading combined with some sequins. Or you can opt for matte sequins as well which aren’t as flashy.  There’s also sequin boots or booties.  Not practical for nasty outdoor weather but you’ll most likely be inside this year so party on!

Houndstooth is such a classic.  You really can’t go wrong with this pattern for your holiday outfit. Every year it gets a bit of a redesign to adopt to a more modern look and to fit in with what’s trending.  But it surely never goes out of style.
