With Thanksgiving come and gone, December is finally here which means it’s time to be merry and bright! I often find myself stuck in the dull-colored rut of winter, so what better way to show holiday spirit than with a few festive wardrobe items? This week’s Fashionista exemplifies a holiday haute dress code perfectly, using color, fabric and winter accessories to dress for the season.
First off, her red Madewell cords are a must-have for the season. Between the color and the style they suit her perfectly. Colored corduroys are very trendy this year, fashionably fearless as a boldly colored pant and as season friendly as a cold weather fabric. Secondly, she pairs the bold cords with a classic, navy Ralph Lauren crewneck sweatshirt. Layered over a collared shirt and finished off with a pair of metallic flats and a knotted headwrap, this Fashionista is dressed for winter weather without sacrificing style.
Try incorporating a bold colored pant into your wardrobe this season, as the cold winter weather will draw more attention to stand out attire. Invest in a pair of colored cords, like this Fashionista’s skinny Madewell pair, or try some colored denim to spice up your usually neutral bottoms. For a more relaxed look, try a brightly colored legging to tuck into your favorite winter boots. Pair the pant with a neutral or print that draws out the color, such as a navy crewneck sweater, a holiday-colored tartan shirt or a simple knit striped top. Brightly colored pants will work wonders on your winter wardrobe so add a pair or two to your holiday wish list and you will be sure to instantly upgrade your closet!
