We're Elevate

What started as a side hustle for two creative, driven sisters has now become one of the Midwest’s premier event planning and design firms. At Elevate, we find pure, unbridled joy in celebrating all aspects of life - big moments, small gatherings and anything in between.

Holiday Personal Style

It’s no secret that the holidays will look a little different this year. Celebrations will be more intimate, some families will celebrate virtually, and even though lots of us will be staying in, that doesn’t mean we can’t be stylish! So no matter how you are enjoying the holiday season this year, check out these festive outfit suggestions to up your personal style game.


Maybe you and your “COVID pod” are celebrating with a smaller dinner party. If you’re hosting, be sure to leave plenty of time to get yourself ready (as well as dinner), and if not, always bring a hostess gift – a bottle of wine is perfect! But, what to wear? A comfortable and fashionable option is velvet. Pick a fun festive color such as a deep green or burgundy. Add a statement shoe and some sparkly jewelry to complete your look! 


Are you going to a small laidback family gathering? A chunky sweater is always a good choice here. Keep it classic and timeless with a solid color or if you’re feeling a bit trendy, wear a plaid print! To keep your outfit casual but still special, pair it with a pair of pants versus your usual jeans. Winter whites are always in, or try a fun color such as a bold kelly green!


Some of us will be staying home with our immediate families this year. Make a day out of it and wear matching cozy pjs. Who wouldn’t want to wear their pjs all day?! Add a fun winter accessory such as a hat or scarf and cuddle up on the couch with some hot chocolate, fuzzy slippers, and take some family selfies to share.

Need more guidance? We now offer personal styling services at Elevate! Whether you are looking for a chic outfit to wear to your bridal shower, an entire wedding weekend wardrobe, or just a weekend away, we will help you look and feel your best!
