STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Holiday Plaid And Lace

Style Advice of the Week

The holidays have always been set aside for time with family, splurging on yummy foods and celebrating! With the holidays just around the corner, preparing for the festivities is important and this Fashionista is prepared! She has the perfect ensemble for any family holiday gathering or activity.

The first article of clothing I noticed was the intricate lace top this Fashionista was sporting. It’s small details are subtle, but at the same time attract the major attention. There are many different styles and patterns of lace tops, so be sure to shop around until you find the one that fits your style best. Her top has lace in a stripe pattern on the shoulders and upper chest, some are fully lace.

This Fashionista’s skirt is a staple plaid that won’t go out of style as fast as other prints might. Her skirt is from the ’40s, so it also has a vintage look. Pinterest has many fun ideas of different plaid prints and even has some DIY tutorials. Want to create your own skirt? For a more casual skirt, here’s one created from a flannel shirt.

For accessories she tied in the staple color of black – black high heels and a black belt. Additionally she added a fun gold necklace that perfectly completed outfit. The most important thing with jewelry is making sure it doesn’t overpower all the other outfit elements.

Hopefully this Fashionista has inspired your creative juices, like she has for me, to get ready for the holiday season and to play around with plaid and lace!
