Sequins, Plaid, and (Faux) Fur

When The Limited asked me to style a look to wear to a family holiday party with one of their sequin tees, I obviously obliged! Me + Sequins + Holiday Get-Togethers = No Brainer. Like I mentioned a few weeks ago, casual holiday parties with food require J.Crew Pixie Pants. (It’s that whole elastic waistband thing… Remember this post?) This sequin tee (comes in six colors!) can obviously be dressed up, but my family holiday gatherings tend to be more on the casual side. I mean, I grew up in rural Illinois. What do you expect?

Casual doesn’t have to lack style though! I decided to go for a double-tartan, layered look. I paired the sequin tee with a plaid button-front shirt, a faux fur vest, and a plaid scarf. Lots of luxe layers (faux fur & sequins) make a casual look feel a bit more glam, no?

Head to The Limited’s Facebook Page and check out my look!

    Love this sequin top over plaid! It looks incredibly chic and not as dressy as sequins usually look! which is good for the daytime :)

    Cute outfit! I would have never thought to pair this tee with plaid. I’ve just recently become a huge fan The Limited. The clothing is perfect for where I am at this point in mylife- young & professional.

    Lovely outfit! I’m loving the sequin shirt, and it looks so nice paired with the fur vest and plaid shirt. I live in a small town that doesn’t ever dress up, so keeping things “under control” is a must-I.E. toning the sequins down! : )

    Love this look! Being from rural Missouri our holidays are never dressed up either (I’m guilty of going in sweats). This is a great inspiration for Christmas this year!
