Holiday Styling Tips: Plaid

Holiday Styling Tips:  Plaid

Holiday Styling Tips: Plaid

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

Jill’s Styling Tips: Subtly add plaid by layering 

My Sweet Obsessions:  Holiday Plaid

My Sweet Obsessions: Holiday Plaid

“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

What I’m really loving about the mark. Go For Baroque Necklace is its amazing detailing.  This guy is really all you need for your holiday looks.  Pair it with a tee like I did or your favorite sweater or blouse, it really goes with everything!  Like how Jackie paired with a colorful printed dress which is totally opposite of my white tee.  I really like this look for Thanksgiving, it’s casually luxe!  I think I’ll repeat this for my night out before Thanksgiving…. turkey eve!  The biggest night of the year to go out 🙂  Only I for sure will need a jacket, maybe the mark. All Good Points Jacket (last seen here!) or even a cute leather (or faux leather) jacket.
