The holiday season is here! I am ready to camp out on my couch, eat cookies, watch Christmas movies and look at the lights twinkle on my Christmas tree. I just want to become one with hot cocoa. As I have been styling holiday looks this year I feel like if you’ve seen one sequin dress you’ve seen them all. Right? Not really, but a special occasion outfit can only get so much wear. Sure you can restyle it and tone it down but seriously, what does it mean that you wore it 3 times instead of once?
Separates have been the answer to my “What am I going to wear” holiday dilemmas. I like adding sparkle or accessories that have a festive vibe and mixing them with pieces of my wardrobe that I can continue to wear throughout the winter season.
I bought this plaid skirt months ago from J Crew (it was a Christmas miracle that it even fits!). I know it’s a formal skirt but I figured something would pop eventually and when it does this skirt will be my ram in the bush.
Catch the Vibe
I planned on being very traditional by pairing this skirt with a basic white button-down shirt. Then I decided to have a little fun instead. This sheer sparkle top gave unexpected flair and I added the leather jacket because… why not? It gave the skirt a cool vibe that I had never intended on it having. Now I am excited to see what other separates in my closet I can give a holiday vibe too!

Create Your Own
Creating this look is all about allowing the plaid to shine. Think about pairing your skirt with a solid top or if you’re feeling brave you can pattern mix as well. I just love a maxi skirt fit for cold weather.
