Hard to believe Summer is more than halfway over. I’m getting ready to do some back-to-school shopping for my kids and I’m starting to think about clothes for the holidays. I recently attended an event which showcased clothing and gift ideas from Lands’ End. Most items will be available as we get closer to the holiday season but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of what we’ll see in stores soon:
December is the only time you can not only get away with wearing Christmas plaid, but also shine in it. Even though it’s a busy pattern it can bring a pop of color to an outfit if the colors are more-or-less from the same group of colors.
These red and navy stripes work for the entire family. I’m a big fan of navy year-round, but for the holiday season it’s especially elegant and since it can go with almost anything you can decide how to build your look with it. In this particular collection it has a more casual look, mostly because of the bright red horizontal stripes.
Another color I love for the fall and winter season is gray. Here it is in tweed and wool material for a more dressy look – perfect for holiday parties.
Navy and gray are classic winter colors but the ultimate color for the holidays is, of course, red. In the picture below you can see how red is incorporated in the outfits with holiday sweaters for that Christmas-y look for a casual yet elegant look.
Who says you can’t wear bright colors in the winter? In the display below you can see a pop of yellow, blue, bright red and even a little green along with the navy and gray. It’s okay to mix dark and light shades, especially when the brights are in the form of a fun outdoor winter jacket.
The play of dark and light colors is displayed in the below picture as well. A pea coat gets a feminine look with a bright, bold color. For men and boys it’s safer to stick to dark colors when it comes to pea coats.
Lands’ End has some elegant and timeless gift ideas. Throws, slippers, tote bags and scarves can be monogrammed for a personalized touch.
