Plaid dress for the holidays


Hi loves! I hope you had an amazing week. Red is the go-to color for the holidays but sometimes a girl needs to switch up her color palette! That is why this festive plaid dress is perfect for the holidays. It’s perfect for holiday parties and even to wear at work. I am wearing the dress in a size 2 (it also comes in petite sizing). The best part? This dress has pockets!

The velvet bow that I have featured is from J.Crew and is currently sold out but I have linked similar option in black here. Velvet is trending this holiday season. If you are hesitant to wear velvet, hair bows are the best way to ease your way into the trend. If you are not a fan of the trend, consider a flirty headband.What do you think of this classic, holiday look?
