In true holiday fashion, this week’s look is all about incorporating a combination of fabrics, colors, and embellishments to achieve a vibrant but traditional holiday ensemble.
For special occasions like the holidays, blazers are my secret weapon. This classic tailored double-breasted tweed blazer in turquoise screams sophistication. If we are talking dainty, tweed is it, honey. This traditionally coarse fabric is infamously known for being woven into formal garments such as suits and peacoats. Aside from its vibrant turquoise hue, the front double-breasted gold metal button closure added a layer of eminence. When piecing together your holiday drip, consider incorporating a blazer to add a sophisticated finish.
Now onto the bottoms. Honestly, I can rave all day about these Ava Pants from Hanifa Official. Firstly, this is a Black woman-owned clothing company, so let’s have a moment of silence for that. Next, the fit of these pants is designed to compliment the unique shapes and sizes of curvy women. Not to mention, the rich color + the ostrich feather trim details make this piece a wardrobe must-have. I know these pants can seem a bit intimidating given the embellishments however, this type of statement piece does the work of creating an outfit for you. Meaning, you can pair these trousers with a simple white tee or tank top.
This week’s style tip is: For the holiday season, try adding vibrant colors into your wardrobe. The reason being is vibrant colors can serve as a spiritual pick me up and can enhance your mood. Especially during this time, where we are navigating a new normal-- adding more color to your wardrobe may be the boost of energy you need.
