Holiday in a Different Way: Floral Maxi Romper
Welcome to the first part in a series about how to dress up a little differently this holiday season. When you search the hashtag #holidaystyle on Instagram, you’ll find a lot of red, green, plaid, sequin and all black. The outfits are adorable and sometimes stunning. As usual, I’m compelled to share a different perspective, though. I hope you find value in some of these out-of-the-stocking ideas. I’ll certainly be wearing some plaid and sequins this month, but I’ll also be wearing fun patterns and other unexpected combinations. I’m starting with this floral maxi romper.
I discovered this pretty little thing at a thrift store, Rumors Boutique. I was riffling around not really looking for anything and the pattern jumped out at me. It said “fall” and yet somehow also felt spring like. When I tried on the floral maxi romper on, the romper part was definitely short. For sexy summer nights, I think this would stun with a pair of scrappy heels. For the winter, though, I added tights, a hat, booties and fur stole.
The effect is a boho, flirty, gangster look. What do you think? Did I nail it? Whatever the cohesive vibe is, it was comfortable, warm, and empowering. I’m glad my crazy mind came up with this combination. I’ll be more bold when I see patterns and shapes that aren’t usually fit for fall or winter from now on. A pair of tights, a versatile scarf and cold-weather boots can transform any dress or romper into a killer and comfy outfit. I’m even thinking about pairing my jean shorts with tights. I pinned a few ideas here.
