If you know me then you know chances are I’ll be wearing some sort of stripes. So it’s only fitting that I share two preppy holiday outfits, one casual and one dressy, both featuring stripes!
With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I find myself thinking about outfits for the holiday season; outfits that are easy to throw together, comfortable and classic.
To me, stripes will always be in style. Stripes always add a pop of fun to an outfit, but also are a wardrobe staple. Because of that, it’s always easy for me to build an outfit around them!
Striped t-shirt & Blazer combo
Enter the $10 striped t-shirt (wearing a medium!) with a tailored black blazer layered over it and paired with dark wash denim and block-heel sandals. A classic and wearable preppy holiday outfit, for a variety of occasions. Wear to the office, wear to a holiday happy hour, or feel confident at a Thanksgiving friendsgiving gathering that your outfit is tailored and put together.
As the temperatures drop, I love a good structured blazer to throw over blouses and tees for added warmth and dressiness. You won’t believe the price on this one! I was stunned when I pulled it out of the box, it looks and feels like a high-end designer blazer. Highly recommend it.
Striped tie-waist dress
And for a little bit of a dressier, preppy holiday outfit idea, run with the striped tie-waist dress that can be worn on its own for holiday parties or layered with the aforementioned black blazer for a little more warmth. It’s also the perfect dress for Thanksgiving because it’s forgiving and the tie-waist is adjustable!
You’ll notice both outfits feature the same accessories – they’re classic and fun pieces that obviously can work with a variety of outfits, including these two preppy holiday outfits. My block heel sandals are comfortable and great for hours of wear, especially in an office environment! And the on-trend faux fur clutch is subtle, yet a pop of fun… plus it doesn’t break the bank at under $45!
Can you believe both of these outfits are from Walmart? I’ve been so impressed with their fashion and style offerings lately. I love that their in-house lines are filled with classic finds and on-trend pieces, too. Grab great basics from their Time and Tru brand or on-trend pieces from Scoop.
