Hi friends! Today we have a fabulous guest post brought to you by the designer, screenprinter, dog mama, wannabe chef, blogger… Dragonflight Dreams! She will be helping us break down the best way to incorporate holiday colors into your wardrobe while remaining fashionable!
I’ve always been one of those people that cringes inside at the thought of wearing colors obviously and glaringly associated with a holiday: black and orange, red white & blue, etc. Christmas is no exception. The idea of wearing red and green together makes me think of elves and greeting cards, not a stylishly put-together person. But no longer! I’ve figured out some tricks to pulling this combo off:
- Choose more muted tones of the classic red and green. Instead of bright red, go with a darker crimson. Instead of bright green, go with a deeper evergreen.
- Mix with lots of neutrals. For Christmas in particular, white, gold and silver are great, but any neutrals will work.
- Add in some patterned pieces. It adds some texture and interest, and can also be a great way to sneak in that holiday color.
- Accessories are great for a pop of color if you don’t want to go head-to-foot Christmas. A shoe, a scarf, a piece of jewelry, tights – mix and match and see what works!
Here are some of my outfit ideas featuring Christmas holiday colors:
