Festive Dressing: Add a Dash of Plaid

I’m in a holiday state of mind, and there’s no stopping the Christmas music or screenings of Love Actually until the (very) end of December. That goes for my wardrobe, too, but instead of overdoing it with a head-to-toe holiday ensemble, I’m sticking to this tried-and-true winter pattern: plaid.

For the office
A basic plaid scarf gives a festive look to work attire, while keeping you warm on the weekday commute.

For running errands
Throw on a plaid blazer with your favorite pair of jeans, and you’ll never miss wearing your yoga pants to the grocery store. (Well, almost never.)

For girls night out
Avoid a too-country look by pairing a plaid top with a bold statement necklace. Dark wash jeans and heels elevate the outfit to not-quite-casual, perfect for a day or night out with the girls.
