I rarely go into a store since I order everything online. However, the other day I had some time to kill, and I know how much you gurls love a good try on haul, so I ventured into Talbots. OH MY WORD!!! I could have scooped up everything in the store. I had to limit myself, but I still managed to do a huge new arrivals holiday try on haul from Talbots, and it only took me 1 1/2 hours. Lol!
In case you missed the last try on hauls I’ve done, here are those posts.

- Try On Haul For Fall With Styles From J.Jill
- Fall Try-On Haul With Chico’s
The great thing about these previous try-on hauls is if the items are still in stock, they are probably on sale! For sizing reference, I am 5’6″ tall, weigh around 150 lb., and I’m usually a size 8 in bottoms and a medium or large in tops.
New Arrivals Holiday Try On Haul From Talbots – Plaid
You probably saw this outfit in my 2023 Winter Holiday Fashion Trends I Love post yesterday. But I didn’t get to show you all of the outfit and how I styled some of the pieces differently.
Here is a look without the blazer. You could style this fringe wrap skirt many ways. I think it would look great with tights and ankle or knee boots. I added the turquoise blue sweater, but I saw it in the store with green, and it looked great. It runs true to size.
New Arrivals Holiday Try On Haul From Talbots – Straight Leg Jeans
I love a cable knit design, but they can be bulky. I love this beautiful blue sweater since it was lightweight, and wasn’t too heavy or bulky. It is available in a TON of colors, but I’m partial to all the bright colors to help keep the winter blaws away. I couldn’t resist getting the Indigo Blue Velveteen Blazer. It can be dressed up or down, and it looks festive for the holidays.
I like to do a mix and match when doing try-on hauls. It gives you at least two ideas on how to wear something like the blazer and sweater. I switched out the fringe skirt of a pair of Straight Leg Jeans, and I love the casual elevated look.
I kept on the jeans (I had to have these too 😆), and switched out the sweaters. I’ve included this sweater on the blog before, but I styled it in a couple of ways, so I wanted to include it in this post. This sweater is a beautiful print and color, and it is a heavier weight than the blue one above. This is not a sweater for those who live in warmer climates.
Layering is one of the keys to looking polished and put together. Adding the Ombre Puffer Vest to the look shows that I put thought into creating the outfit.
I love, love, love this entire look! The purple ombre vest is gorgeous and looks fabulous with the zigzag sweater. The vest is down-filled, so although it is fairly lightweight, it will keep you warm and toasty.
New Arrivals Holiday Try On Haul From Talbots – Ivory
Ivory, Ecru, Winter White, Cream, it doesn’t matter what you call this color, it is perfect for the holidays. I kept on the zigzag sweater but switched out the straight leg jeans for a pair of ivory pants. From a casual look to a dressy outfit by changing one item.
I think wearing a tonal outfit is sooo classy and chic looking. The Pearl & Rhinestone Sweater looks fabulous with the ivory pants and would look so pretty at a holiday party. While everyone else is wearing red, green, or gold, you can stand out by wearing this simple outfit.
Here is a closer look at the Pearl & Rhinestone Sweater. This sweater can be worn any time this winter, not just to a holiday party. It even looks great with jeans for a dressy/casual look that I would wear to a friend’s house or on a date night.
This, on the other hand, is pure glam! I love the look of the Black and Ivory Sequin Jacket with the Ivory pants. The pants are dressy and elevate anything you style with them. I didn’t have different shoes, but I would wear a pair of heels with these ankle-length pants.
Yes, yes, and yes! This is gorgeous!!! It is such a pretty classic Chanel-esk jacket. I love the pearl buttons down the placket and on the faux pockets. Watching the ball drop on New Year’s Eve in this jacket would be amazing.
New Arrivals Holiday Try On Haul From Talbots – Black Velvet
Is there anything more elegant than black velvet? Here is another tonal outfit, but this one is black on black instead of all ivory. The black jacket isn’t as deep a black as the pants, but they still look great together.
Note to retailers…clean your mirrors in the dressing rooms daily! The black Velvet Wide Leg Pants do NOT have speckles on them. 🙄 I almost didn’t show this photo, but I wanted you to see the width of the pants. Once again, I would wear them with heels, but you can see that the length is fine for wearing with flats.
Here is a way to wear the velvet pants for an everyday occasion. I would wear this look for a date night, to work, church, or anywhere I wanted to look festive and dressy.
I LOVE this adorable reindeer sweater. I shared this sweater on FaceBook, and someone commented that anyone over the age of 10 shouldn’t wear such a corny look. I knew 50 is not old, but who knew I was only 10?!? I say the sweater is adorable, but we can still be friends if you disagree. The sweater is so soft, and it found a new home in my closet.
I rarely take the time to wear a button-up shirt under my sweaters, but it elevates the overall look. I Foil Snowflake Shirt is cute enough to wear by itself with a pair of jeans. But, wearing it as a layering piece under the reindeer sweater made the outfit look complete.
Look how cute the little reindeer sweater looks with a pair of jeans! You could wear this sweater all winter, not just at Christmas. That would be a different story if the reindeer had a red nose. Lol!
I shared this Metallic Puffer Vest in yesterday’s holiday trends post since gold and metallics are trending this time of year. When I put the reindeer sweater and the gold puffer together, I kept hearing “Silver & gold” by Burl Ives in my mind.
The gold metallic puffer is also downfilled, lightweight, and warm. I love the fur collar, but it can be removed for a different look. This is something that can be worn all winter, and I think it would be cute styled with a flannel shirt.
New Arrivals Holiday Try On Haul From Talbots – Caramel
I guess I am back to being 10 again since I’m styling another adorable animal sweater.
Just looking at this cute little owl makes me smile. The world can be a stressful place, but this little guy brings me joy. I’ll take joy over stress any time. I have this corduroy skirt and riding boots that would look perfect with my feathered friend.
I’m switching the look up slightly and styling a pair of Stretch Corduroy Demi Boot Pants with the stylish owl. This is another tonal outfit, but this one is casual looking.
I switched up the sweaters and chose something a little less whimsical.
This Chain Link Sweater reminds me of a Ralph Lauren style sweater. I love the chains, and I think they give the sweater a classic vibe. Plus, since I’m a University of Tennessee fan, I love the BIG Orange links. Lol!
What do you think about the demi boot pant look? I would probably wear them with boots. I’ll link to a few below that would work.
Did you stick with me all the way to the end? I told you this holiday try on haul from Talbots was huge. I love hearing which were your favorite items and where you would wear them.
