Welcome 2023! 5 Ways to Repurpose Holiday Attire & Wear It Well Through Winter

Happy New Year!

Yes, it’s time to pack away most of our holiday gear. Yet, not everything we wore to celebrate in December needs to be retired for the rest of winter just yet!

In our first post of 2023, we share fresh ideas for breathing new life into traditional holiday clothing and accessories by pairing select pieces with more standard winter basics in ways that maximize your wardrobe while embracing new looks for the months ahead. We hope a few of these ideas resonate with you and help you make the most of what might already be in your own closet.

#1 The Velvet Jacket
A hot holiday trend that can be dressed down with basic sweaters and turtlenecks, jeans and boots and worn through February (or even March here in New England!).

 

 

#2 Green with Envy
Deep hunter green was a runaway favorite color for holiday 2022. Carry it forward with soft browns, camels and winter white for a fresh winter look that breaks it free from a holiday vibe.

 

 

#3 Leather Party Pants
Revamp your leather leggings from party pants to every day style. Leather (real or faux) in a variety of colors and finishes (shiny & liquid leather included!) get toned down with oversized sweaters, ponchos, and simple boots.

 

 

#4 Sparkle Tops
Blouses with bling become everyday ready when worn with a simple wrap, oversized sweater or under a hip blazer. Sparkly jackets with jeans make you shine while keeping things casual.  They can even work on Zoom post-holiday!

 

 

#5 Get Valentine Ready
Finally, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, give your red, pink and winter white holiday attire a once over to see what will make the Valentine’s Day cut. Remember, it’s not how much you have but how you wear it that is the key to everyday style!
