Meg Ann Lee: Four Holiday Essentials You Need in Your Closet
Holiday fashion is upon us! What does that mean for you?
For me it means I’m pulling out all my velvet, faux fur, sequins and plaid! I've styled some of my personal items and also searched the internet for some AMAZING pieces for you to add into your holiday attire!
Velvet is such a timeless, romantic fabric. My favorite velvet is thrifted (obviously) and I have had so much luck finding amazing velvet pieces over the years. A flowy duster or a skater dress looks fabulous in this fabric. I paired my hunter green dress with an accent belt, over the knee detailed tights and platforms. Can I just say, if you haven’t worn a platform in a while, get a pair. They are EMPOWERING.
There’s a fine line between fashionable sequins and marching band color guard sequins. No offense to my color guard gals, I used to be one! However a little sparkle never hurt anyone. Again, you guys, I find the BEST sequined items thrifting but during the holiday season you can find so many options online! I paired mine with a basic white tank, green corduroy flares, a belt and hat. FYI my accent belt is a suedo Gucci belt ( winky face) because honestly my mentality is Gucci or retirement fund...if you got it girl, you buy that Gucci belt! If not, this one is from Etsy.
When in doubt, plaid is THE holiday pattern. From table cloths to tree skirts to your ACTUAL skirt, it all works! If you are trying to pull together a holiday outfit a red plaid will always turn any outfit into a holiday look. Throw on your favorite jeans, a beanie & snow boots and you are ready for a Wisconsin holiday shindig!
I know the holidays look different this year for all of us. Even if its just you and your cat sharing the "ROAST BEAST" this holiday, NOTHING is stopping you from pulling out some of your favorite items, dressing up, feelin' good and taking a selfie for the gram!
