December is mad for plaid, and not just of the pajama kind.

Plaids have been a strong contender in the fashion sphere since the fall, tweaking the traditional tartan to reflect a more streetwise silhouette. It’s a pattern that can pair just as well with a tee as it can with velvet, and quelle surprise – you can even layer it with other plaids.

If you’re not buying into the tartan craze for the season’s festivities, then set your sights on luxury fabrics such as suede or sequins instead, using the print in smaller doses: barrettes, a scarf, a purse. (Gift wrap doesn’t count.)

Regardless of what you don, remember the holidays are times to go big. Don’t be afraid to sparkle – your flannel PJs will still be waiting for you at the end of the night.
