Are you a-wear that today is Christmas? Festive is in fashion today. I’ve been conjuring up ways to wear Christmas colors on-camera all December, as I’ve been producing video stories all month long based on the holiday.
With that has come a knack for pairing green and red together in ways that look merry and fresh each time! Red and green are considered complimentary colors, so you may find yourself reaching for the color combo past December 25. So look no further than these three stylings of the season that may inspire your last-minute Christmas dinner look, or beyond!
Look 1: Christmas Couture
This tweed look, circa ‘90s, is equal parts House of Chanel as it is Clueless! The black and white cropped tweed jacket comes with all the trimmings: the sequined ruffles on the lining and pockets remind me of a bow on a present! I added a personal touch, my vintage cameo brooch I can thank my mother for. Under jacket, I opted for a pop of crimson to up the festive ante. The leather pencil skirt and over-the-knee suede boots are the edgy additions needed to make this outfit an eclectic mix of street style and couture, the ultimate fashion-girl duet!
Look 2: A Scottish Holiday
If you’re as infatuated with the Outlander television and book series as I am, you may find yourself expressing your inner lassie with a kilt-like wool skirt in shades of red, golden yellow and green. This forest-like turtleneck, as green as the highlands themselves, picks up on the same hue in the skirt. It’s the type of ensemble I’d like to wear in a stonework castle in the highlands with a cup of milk tea and biscuits in hand. And let me tell you, this camel-colored coat with puffy sleeves is my trendy outerwear of choice if I were to walk the grounds of said castle in my mind.
Look 3: An Equestrian Christmas
I’ve been long obsessed with the Americana motifs from Ralph Lauren photo campaigns. The effortless-cool nature of a well-tailored trouser and fitted sports jacket are not to be underestimated. This cropped one with patchwork elbows that I paired with wide-leg cherry pants from Mango is a mirthful take on the equestrian looks from my Ralph Lauren coffee table book in my living room. The forest-green turtleneck is a seamless pop of color, harmonizing with the greenish-grey stitching of the tweed. I pulled everything together with a belt in the same shade of red as my trousers and my lipstick. The pearl hoops earrings from my grandmother were the prime embellishments to a look that head nods to legacy.
