The holiday season is here! To go along with all those festive outings coming up you’ll need a festive look! Which is why Jill from My Sweet Obsessions and I have a few tips to make your holiday styling a little easier. First on the list, plaid! Plaid is a easy fall print that transitions really well for holiday. It can be casual or dressy so super fitting for your holiday events. And yes holiday events include Thanksgiving! Plaid is a perfect fall pattern for your Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving looks!
Alicia’s Tips For Styling Plaid:
1. Go with a bold plaid
I like red of course, it’s the most festive, but you can pick any color. The key is to go with an all over print like in pants, or a jacket! These ankle columnists in red plaid from Express (old) are a pretty bold way to wear plaid.
2. Anchor it with a neutral
When going bold anchor it with a neutral, like black, to keep it wearable. The solid black blazer over a graphic tee helps keep my bold plaid pants wearable.
3. Dress up casual plaid with dressy fabrics.
Adding a satin blazer instantly dresses up the look. The mark. Blaze A New Trail Blazer ($60) is the perfect piece to dress up plaid, with it’s nice quality and poppy print lining it’s a wardrobe must have. It’s fitted, so not only is it slimming, but it also is a dressier silhouette. (I even paired this blazer over my wedding dress for the after parties!)
4. Complete with a little sparkle
Metallics and sparkle make anything a little more holiday-tastic! I finished off my look with the mark. Pumped With Vogue Heels ($40), mark. Twice As Nice Necklace and mark. Cube Effect Necklace ($18).
Jill’s Styling Tips: Subtly add plaid by layering
“Go subtle with the plaid by layering a plaid button up under a sweatshirt like the Effortless Edge Sweatshirt by mark. Expose the plaid cuff and collar and unzip the side zipper for just a hint of plaid. To keep the plaid the main focus of your look, keep your accessories simple. Then, stay casual by finishing off with a pair of medium wash distressed denim jeans and brown riding boots.” – Jill from My Sweet Obsessions
