If your December calendar is filled to the brim with holiday dinners, cocktails, and NYE soirees, we suggest you start planning your outfits before last-minute panic mode kicks in. However, that doesn't mean you have to buy everything new; we're loving the idea of piecing closet staples, like a plaid shirt, with dressier accompaniments for a holiday ensemble that's high on style and function. Thanks to the latest Zara TRF lookbook, we culled some amazing festive styling tips that will surely give you a head start on your holiday dressing season. Read below for three quick and easy styling tips to try out, then click the slideshow to see the latest from Zara's TRF collection.
- Dress up your plaid. We love the idea of wearing our cozy plaid shirts with fancy black maxis or tulle skirts for the perfect mix of pretty-meets-punk.
- Get shorty. Instead of the per usual holiday dress, mix things up this season and wear Winter-appropriate tweed shorts with a bonny blouse or sweater.
- Add masculine elements. We're currently all about the tuxedo jacket. It looks good with practically everything, especially when paired with lace or silky accompaniments.
