The holiday season practically goes hand in hand with all things plaid, check or tartan.
It’s quite festive, no?!
However, once the egg nog is poured (does anyone really drink that stuff?!), all of the gifts are opened and the ball is dropped you’re left to clean up the mess of the holidays and that often includes retiring some of your favorite plaid pieces until the following year. Fortunately, there is plaid street style inspiration abound — and unlike your Singing Santa figurine collection, this is a holiday style that can stay with us quite a while longer!
Keep bright plaid low key in 2018 with an assortment of cozy neutrals. By pairing your plaid bottoms with neutral colors in assorted textures (how amazing is that little FAUX FUR BOMBER?!), it downplays the statement pattern of the pants and creates a much more modern look that will take you well beyond the holiday season.
Ease your holiday plaid into the New Year with a little pattern mixing! The blend of STRIPES and ANIMAL PRINT take the focus off the PLAID SKIRT (I love the asymmetric hemline + the PRICE!) and create a well balanced mix where no one specific piece stands out.
Switch up the look of a holiday plaid dress with a simple swap of shoes. Trade in your go-to black pumps for a bright and peppy HOT PINK HEEL (THESE are only $30!) which is far from a holiday standard. The BLACK LEATHER MOTO JACKET adds a bonus dose of edgy style to what is typically a preppy/conservative dress!
