    BHLDN (8 E Walton St, 312-573-2573)
    Wedding wear and accessories are a big focus of this boutique chain, but many of the dresses featured here can work for any special occasion. We're also enjoying the homemade snowflakes hanging in the window. And both of those red dresses just scream Christmas cheer, don't you think?

    Louis Vuitton (919 N Michigan Ave, 312-944-2010)
    This Mag Mile boutique never disappoints with its creative displays. The Vuitton folks aren't going overboard this holiday season, instead focusing on a 1970s-esque vibe with muted tones and a lot of gold. We have a feeling those gold, textured pants would look good on anyone.

    Macy�s (111 N State St, 312-781-1000)
    Parading past the holiday windows at Macy's State Street location is a holiday tradition for many Chicagoans. This year's theme is "The Magic of Christmas" and follows the holiday traditions started when the store was called Marshall Field's.

    The Great Gatsby
    movie might've been pushed back until next year, but you can still get your 1920s Deco fix via this window display. We're digging all the winter whites, and nothing says elegant holiday party like a pair of elbow-length cocktail gloves.

    Sofia (100 E Walton St, 312-640-0878)
    This local boutique's new space has more of a grown-up feel to it, and the window reflects that. These mannequins are dressed to go to a sophisticated holiday party.

    Urban Outfitters (935 N Rush St, 312-640-1919)
    It's like Noah's ark is throwing a holiday party with the cutouts of a pig, deer, birds and other animals.

    Zara (700 N Michigan Ave, 312-255-8123)
    This Spanish chain's windows always veer on the classy side, with a subtle touch of garland in the corner. See that guy on the box? We think we just found our New Year's outfit.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for these downtown Chicago store windows.
