Remember those cute Christmas pageants we were all in when we were little? Secretly, we all wanted to wear the angel costume, but we all wanted to be Mary. Who would you want to dress like today? The Christmas season has a lot of incredible fashion trends, and who better to be our inspiration for the season than the reason for the season? So this year, take your fashion notes from the gospels:

What an incredible love story. This season is full of romance, and Mary is a perfect example of our desire to find a deep, magical love. If you’re a romantic within, let Mary’s story of love inspire your Christmas fashions.
