Extend Your Holiday

How to wear holiday year round.

The holidays are right around the corner and we always get this question from our clients:

"When will I wear this again?"

 

When our clients are shopping for a holiday look that seems a bit pricey for just one occasion, our reply is:

"Wear it all year long!"

 

The key to this is versatile and creative styling... good thing that's what the #foldgirls are best at! 

 

Here are some winter staples that all #foldgirls should have in their closets:

 

  1. Hand-knit sweater
  2. A crisp, white cotton poplin shirt
  3. Holiday pant
  4. A tall leather boot
  5. A core blazer

 

If you have all or even some of these staples, you could easily update some of your current pieces with a jewel-toned silk tank + matching silk trousers, a long skirt or dress that is pleated or has movement, a white or black tuxedo pant, anything that is bubble-gum pink or a dark shade of bordeaux, or a piece that has some sequins, metallic, or lurex.

 

Here are a few examples of what’s available #inthefold:

You can extend these holiday pieces by combining them with your current closet staples. THINK IN LAYERS. Here are a few ways:

 

  • Pair a hand knit sweater over a pleated dress or skirt and add the tall boot to finish the look. Bonus points if the boot "slouches" for an easier, laid-back effect.
  • Wear your cotton poplin shirt UNDER a dress for a cool update.
  • Put a jewel-toned cami under a sheer chunky sweater, showing off a little of the straps or lace (or for a sexier date look, wear over our favorite Fortnight lingerie) + pair with your high-waisted pants or jeans.
  • Throw a sequin jacket on after work, wearing it as a blazer over a serious look or with jeans and a t-shirt for a night out on the town.
  • Wear your cami and shirred pants, together or separate, on the weekend with a long cardigan or a hoodie for a jet-setting, leisure look.
  • Wear your long dresses and skirts with sneakers and a leather jacket, just as the NY fashion girls do while they grocery shop.
