This time of year always has me tempted to find a fun new festive outfit for holiday celebrations. But realistically I don’t need a new festive outfit for each year and new occasion. Especially being 7 months pregnant I don’t want to buy something that I will only be able to wear once. So instead I am planning a few fun and festive outfits using what I already have or adding a few simple accessories.
Add A BowThere are so many great hair ties & bows out this season that are perfect for making your outfit a bit more festive. A few of my favorites include this velvet hair tie (similar here and here), this pretty chiffon bow (available in red, pink & black), and this plaid scrunchie (also love this plaid bow).
Dress it up: Pair your favorite festive bow with your holiday dress/skirt. I’ll be wearing this festive bow with my black velvet Christmas dress.
Touch of PlaidNothing says festive like a great holiday plaid. A plaid scarf is one of my favorite accessories for the holiday season. There are so many patterns and tartans perfect for adding a festive flare to your outfit. I love this ivory option from Talbots. I also love this scarf that comes in three festive patterns (Black Watch, Royal Stewart & Dress Stewart).
Dress it up: A festive plaid scarf can be worn with just about anything. Pair it with a simple dress and heels for any easy holiday party outfit.
Pops of RedAdding a touch of red to any outfit is a great way to be a bit more festive. A few of my favorite red accessories to wear this time of year are my red hunter boots, a red winter hat, or a solid red scarf.
Dress it up: Wear red heels or flats with a simple black dress. Add a red lip and clutch.
