A question as old as time – WHAT WILL I WEAR FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
Okay, maybe not that old, but it’s still something that many of us wonder about!
It doesn’t have to be terribly complicated, if you can isolate a color that you’re happy to wear more than once, and you can assemble just 4 pieces of clothing…
My working thesis here is that you can start with just 1 skirt or pair of pants, which are in a fabric that immediately elevates the dressiness quotient of anything from a silk blouse to a sweatshirt. Add in a cardigan with some sort of festive flair, and then a couple of tops. (and yes, you might very well have some of these things already in your closet!)
The cardigan can be pulled on over a tee shirt and jeans to shift the entire look of what you’re wearing. Your 2 tops might be as simple as a tee shirt in the right color, or as fabulous as an ornate embroidered tunic.
As well as being useful to wear with your existing wardrobe, the 4 pieces on their own have some great potential:
You don’t have to have long hair to wear a hair ornament or headband…
Your colors don’t have to match to death – as long as they blend beautifully you’ll be fine…
If you’re manning the doors at an open house, 2 sweaters might not be excessive!
I love looking at holiday clothes – would you like to see these in more colors?
