Have you chosen your Christmas outfit yet? How about a pair of red plaid leggings and a cute top? The possibilities are endless and the look is super easy to put together.
What pattern do you think of when you think of the Christmas holidays? Certainly those with Santas and snowmen and snowflakes, but how about a plaid or check pattern? Black watch plaid is definitely big at the holidays and throughout the winter months, but anything in red plaid just shouts Christmastime!
OK, I realize that it’s less than 14 days until Christmas. It seems incredible to even write that here!! This year crawled by for months and then November hit and the days have flown by! In any case, there is still time to pick up a cute pair of red plaid leggings for a simple yet chic holiday outfit. Read on for details…
Many Ways to Style Red Plaid Leggings
I ordered this pair of plaid leggings over two weeks ago and with the SLOW deliveries from some vendors, they have finally arrived. Naturally, most sizes have sold out for this particular pair but there are still lots of options that are still available to arrive in time for your holiday.
Below I’ve included a sampling. Many come in Plus and Petite Plus sizes and will be delivered by Christmas if you hurry!
I’m showing you several ways to style these pants and honestly, almost anything works. My preference is generally for a top that is a bit longer or even a tunic top. Like the black tunic I styled in the post, Comfort and Style in a Tunic Top.
First off, how about an oversized white shirt? You just can’t go wrong pairing a white shirt with anything, can you? I love the crispness of the white against the darker plaid.
Of course, a black or red turtleneck top works well, too. Here, I’m showing the pants with both a mock and a turtleneck. These tops are a bit shorter, not my favorite with leggings, but they work.
The first top adds elegance with a touch of lace in the sleeves. This one is from Halogen by Nordstrom. It looks much more expensive than it is. I love the mock neck and the stretch fabric in the body of the top, and the mesh sleeves really dress it up! It looks super cute with jeans, too!
A crew-neck top with a twist tie front is soft and easy to wear. This one in black is comfy and conceals everything at the top of the leggings just right! Cap toe sneakers keep the look casual.
There are lots of ideas for tops to style with plaid pants. How about a poncho? Especially if you are headed to a (small and safe) gathering with friends or family. Even a tunic length sweatshirt looks cute and festive. A white tee or turtleneck with a duster cardigan adds warmth to your style.
You can see that your choice of accessories makes all the difference. Nothing new there, right? Flats give off a classic and classy vibe, slip-on sneakers create a slightly more casual look and feel, and heels up the ante. You choose the style that works for whatever event you are attending or hosting.
I’m a hoop earring lover, and these bold goldtone ones are my current favorite. They dress up the look just enough with a flash of gold.
