Out of sentiment, and frugality, I’m not ready to retire my winter-y clothing to storage just yet. Unlike Christmas lights, which are frowned upon in February, our holiday apparel has a much longer shelf life! Many of spring’s biggest trends incorporate pieces we stockpiled this winter — iridescent fabrics, full skirts, chic sweatshirts and crisp white blouses. Instead of overhauling my closet I’m easing into the new season armed with my favorite holiday garb. Here’s how I’m styling a Christmas-y party skirt for spring:
A romantic, jewel toned party skirt feels right at home in February — the month of roses and Valentines. But be sure to update the piece for spring, with a kitschy men’s shirt for instance, for a look that feels retro-whimsical rather than holiday-formal.
When repurposing your holiday party garb avoid overindulgently sparkly accessories, which scream New Year’s Eve. Instead, opt for a thoughtfully assembled arm party, layering mixed metals and a string of pearls on one wrist. Top everything off with some Audrey-inspired specs for a glamorous mid-century look!
With just a few seasonal updates our beloved holiday purchases become spring staples! What winter pieces are you dying to repurpose this season?
