With holidays around the corner everyone seems to be catching the festive fever. Window displays are an explosion of holiday deals, T.V. shows have all had their holiday episodes and Feliz Navidad seems to be playing constantly. It's fun to inject a little bit of holiday spirit into your clothes this time of year and it's especially important to look fabulous when family comes to visit. Staying fashionable during the holidays is easier than ever now that bold patterns and colorful accesories are the norm. Take cues from the hit T.V. show Glee. On the holiday episode the cast rocks holiday themed outfits and not in a gimmicky or childish way (okay, maybe the Cheeri-o's candy cane socks are a bit much but you get the picture) showing that you can be stylish and ooze holiday spirit.
Our Fashionista this week looks super feminine in her blue gray high-waisted skirt, black tights and blouse. She stays warm in a cream bomber jacket with a fur-lined hood and a fantastic plaid scarf. She completes her look with black buckled boots and a studded mustard and black bag. Her outfit is the perfect example of a stylish look with a dab of festive flair and all it took to achieve this was adding a simple plaid scarf.
Plaid is a great print to incorporate into any holiday outfit. It gives off a warm, cozy feeling which parallels the holiday vibe perfectly. Plaid has been a reigning trend for several season now and it doesn't seem likely that it will disappear anytime soon. It's also very versatile since it comes in every color imaginable. For a festive outfit this winter, try out a basic red and black plaid button down shirt. This one from Target has a super cute ruffle for some added flair. Pair it with black skinny jeans, a pair of Mary Jane shoes and throw on a funky headband and you're set for a holiday party with your friends. Also, you can incorporate plaid into your accessories, similar to our Fashionista. Spice up your little black dress for the season with plaid stockings or even plaid heels.
Hint: Use plaid to stay warm! Plaid is a popular color for winter gear, so stock up on this stylish and functional pattern. Start with a super trendy plaid poncho.
