Elizabeth and James Shows Us How To Do A Sophisticated-Shopper Uniform

The countdown is on. There are only six days left to shop before December 25, and we're kind of totally behind schedule. But, let's be real — we all knew this was going to happen, just like it does every year. Which means that this weekend will consist of trekking from store to store until we've found the perfect gifts for everyone on our list (yes, even those family members we never know how to shop for). In preparation for the laborious Saturday and Sunday ahead, we've created our fashionable version of battle attire with a little inspiration from Elizabeth and James. This outfit can handle all of those pushy shoppers, pesky sales assistants, and whatever the elements have in store, too. So, keep it comfy: A cropped pant and cowl-neck sweater reads casual yet polished. Finish with an oversize coat and leopard-print satchel for a cool-girl touch. And, don't forget a trusty pair of loafers! Your arches will thank you later. Ready, set, shop!
