I bought this dress last spring on super-sale and have been keeping it "on hold" to wear this holiday season. The pink-and-grey plaid is festive without being obnoxious, and this floral bomber from Le Tote was the perfect topper! There's definitely a Pink Lady vibe going on here, which is a fun contrast to the feminine/preppy plaid. I pushed this look toward the harder edges with the cuff and studded gloves. But, the big takeaway from this ensemble is that there are no limits to creativity for holiday dressing. Sure, you can go the red n' green route, but if you want to really push your style aesthetic then try for the unexpected, yet keep things fun and festive! Need inspiration?

On a sidenote: this necklace, also from Anthro, was purchased YEARs ago, like 5+ and it so beautifully picks up on the passive, yellow and green shades in the plaid, which goes to show that when you have a long-standing "relationship" with a retailer you are able to build up your own style over the years through their offerings and acquire pieces that "collaborate".
