I love the Holiday Season and holiday dressing is one of my favorite things.
The holidays are the PERFECT time of year to combine new, old, vintage and designer into a fa la la tastic look.
Holiday dressing doesn’t have to be ALL over-the-top kitsch (aka ugly Christmas Sweaters and Tinsel Crowns) it can also be chic and subtle.
Try taking a current trend and incorporating it into your holiday look.
Folkloric details such as embroidery, ruffles and high necklines are truly having a moment right now. Fashion inspired by the artisans of yesteryear has been spotted everywhere from Paris to Milan with luxury brands such as Gucci reviving folksy fashion elements.
Folksy details create a rich color story with fabrics that look as if they’ve been woven by hand and embroidered with care.
I personally am totally digging this vintage revival and something about it makes it PERFECT for holiday dressing.
It was love at first sight for me and this Unique Vintage dress.
When I first saw it I thought “Hello, Patsy Cline”.
…but once it arrived I realized that this dress is even more amazing and so much more versatile than I originally thought. When paired with my favorite Christmasy-red vintage Pendleton cape it takes on an oh-so on-trend Austrian folksy Christmas vibe. The green sleeves contrasting with the red cape framing the floral embroidery creates a chic vintage holiday mood.
Now all I need is a little snow and a one horse open sleigh to make the season complete!
How will you incorporate a current fashion trend into your holiday dressing?
