Holiday Fashion: Styled in SilkNovember 12, 2013
From our signature silk scarves to silk dresses and tops, it's no secret that we love this light and airy fabric. Can you still wear silk in the colder winter months? We say yes! Read on to find out how to style this luxurious fabric for all of your winter time events and activities!
What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner
The 4 Love & Liberty Honey Blouse adds some boho flair to the staple silk blouse with contrasted embroidery. Pair with Johnny Was Five Pocket Black Pants and your favorite heeled booties for a polished look. And while the black and white trend is huge this holiday season, we prefer to top off the look with a pop of color thanks to a Johnny Was scarf in - yep, you guessed it - luxurious silk chiffon. Then add your favorite jewelry for a little added holiday sparkle. Bring on the turkey!
What to Wear to a Holiday Party
The holidays are a time for gathering together with friends and family. Whether you're gathering around the fireplace drinking egg nog, going to see the decorations around your neighborhood, or baking holiday treats with your loved ones, you want to look stylish while feeling comfortable. For more informal holiday gatherings, we love the Johnny Was Feather Print Blouse. The detailed print is colorful and fun, while the slight luster of the silk adds a little polish to your look. Combine it with the Johnny Was Five Pocket Pants and your favorite boots for a carefree boho-chic look. We like to layer a few long necklaces over this blouse to highlight the neckline. Finally, dab on some Talia fragrance oil - it smells like warm vanilla with a hint of tart wild orange essence, as inviting as a tray of freshly baked Christmas cookies.
What to Wear to the Holiday Show
Communities come together during the winter months at school Holiday pageants, music recitals, dance performances, tree lighting ceremonies, and more. Occasions like this call for a put-together look, but that doesn't mean you have to opt for the classic LBD-and-heels look. We prefer to start with the basics - the Johnny Was Five Pocket Pants in black and the Pete & Greta Janson Button-Down Top in the on-trend Berry Sangria hue - then take things to the next level by adding boho-chic accessories. The Johnny Was Eli Necklace is a unique statement jewelry piece made of braided silk. The embroidered silk Obi Belt adds another layer of color and texture to the outfit. Finally, a silk scarf pulls all of the colors in the outfit together.
