Festive Without The Fuss: Tartan Blazer With Jeans

December 19th, 2016

A casual take on holiday attire

Around the holidays, we tend to put a lot of emphasis on getting dressed up. And for good reason. You certainly always want to look your best at whatever party you are attending. That’s not to say you can’t do holiday style without getting decked out.

Here’s one way to dress festively this holiday season, without all the fuss – a simple tartan blazer with jeans outfit.

Consider a black watch tartan plaid blazer your “holiday navy blazer”. It’s just as versatile as a navy blazer, but a lot more festive. It pairs just as well with a slim dark denim and a sweater as it does with charcoal grey wool pants, a button-up shirt and knit tie.

This is a look to wear on a casual pre-holiday date, out with buddies after work or to the office if you happen to have to work this Friday.

The holidays are about indulging and that goes for your accessories as well. You’ll never go wrong with a short-cropped “indoor scarf” under a blazer for a touch of refinement.


And don’t forget that winter is boot season. If you’ve been coveting a nice pair of wingtip dress boots, I think there’s still time to have a pair shipped for underneath the tree.


Thanks, as always, for reading.

Stylishly Yours,
