Four Festive Looks

I love getting dressed up.  Obviously.  Often I find myself all dressed up with nowhere to go.  So one of the things I love abut the holidays is having an excuse to get all dressed up.  I built most of these looks with items already in my closet (trying to stay on a budget) and it was so much fun.  I am much more creative when I am challenged to work with what I already have.  It’s easy to just buy something new.

1. Plaid + Leather

Leather is a great way to add some edge to this iconic print. I paired a plaid shirt dress from H&M (love wearing shirt dresses as a shirt because they actually stay tucked in) with a leather wrap midi shirt from TopShop.  Both of these items were from last year so I linked a few similar items below, just click the product pics.

2. Subtle Sparkle

I scooped this voluminous metallic skirt up from Winners for just $29.99.  I was tempted to pair it with an oversized sweater.  But instead I decided at go for something a little more sparkly – this sweater has jewel embellished shoulders.  And to top it all off I added a brushed gold hairband to my messy and unwashed pony.

3. Casual Sequins

I love me some sequins but often I find they are just a little too glam.  I find the best way to tone down your sequins is with a chunky knit.  I went for  a winter white and added a pom pom beanie.  Both of these items are a couple of years old so I added a few similar options below if you are in need of some sequins or knits.

4. Bold Colour

I love mixing bold colours.  And when they are as bold as this red and eggplant I go all in with the accessories.  The sweater is from Marshalls so I linked a couple similar ones below and the jeans are from The Gap.  Links below, just click the pics.

Hope this helps inspire you as you don your festive looks this holiday season.
