We are so excited to have a double feature this week on the blog! You hear words thrown around like “dressing up” and “formal” and “events” – and while we all may use these words interchangeably, they have very different meanings for each individual. There is no cookie-cutter way to dress. While it is respectful to dress according to all specific instructions presented by those putting on a certain event, when its left open-ended we hope you will feel inspired to truly be YOU even when dressing more formal than usual. These looks below, while certainly not black-tie formal, are still elevated looks with two very different aesthetics. This red plaid coat from Vilagallo is a great combination of masculine silhouettes and fabrics, with true feminine details (the lining of this coat has the sweetest illustrations!) Worn with a button-down and straight leg denim from Levis, we are definitely playing up menswear with this look. On the other hand, lace and velvet is quintessential feminine formality and we have shown that with a new, modern flare. This high-neck lace detail blouse is perfect for layering or standing out on its own. These wintertime fabrics make a statement all their own without any effort. Above all else, we hope you will stay true to yourself for all of your formal holiday events this year!
