Even if you aren’t a pattern-wearer, you likely have a little plaid in your wardrobe. It’s a pattern that everyone seems to love, whether it’s gingham in the summer or a tartan plaid when the weather cools off. And, December calls for plaid like no other month!

Brighten your wardrobe with some of these plaid picks … and we went heavy on the shoes, as in plaid shoes. So fun! Then, we added a little sparkle to the season with a few baubles we think finish off outfits from casual to cocktail.

Pining for more plaid? Here are some to consider:

Plaid collection #1
Look #1: (click on any pink words for more details): Plaid shirt (J. Crew $29.50), dark jeans (Joe’s Jeans, on sale $99) and a black velvet blazer (longer one is Theory, shorter one is Hinge). Add either a matching scarf or one that contrasts nicely. This is a great look for a casual holiday party. Replace the velvet blazer with a puffer vest with faux fur trim for a more casual look. Finish with velvet shoes (like these flats with a bow), booties or swap the boot cut jeans for skinnies and add a pair of knee high or over-the-knee boots like these or for a steeper price, these.

See, I have that same J Crew Factory blouse! I even did the plaid on plaid thing … see? A great December look!
Look #2: (click on any pink words for more details) Here is a quick look bound to turn heads: wear this winter navy dress from J.McLaughlin with this red and navy plaid trench coat from J. Crew. Add a sparkly necklace. Wear the trench paired with jeans and a chambray button down shirt, with a white wool sweater on top (leave the chambray shirt untucked, peeking out beneath the sweater) for a more casual look … and pair with some houndstooth flats! Beware, this jacket is not lined, but it will keep you dry. It’s on sale, which is good as it’s J. Crew Collection, which is pricier. (Be sure to use code MERRYSALE for an extra 40% off!)
Plaid Shoes
And for the perfect festive touch, consider finishing off your outfit with some plaid shoes! From top left, clockwise: navy plaid ballet flats, with pointy toe, $109; black and white plaid taffeta shoes with rhinestone accent, $129; quilted plaid flats, $109; the pair of plaid heels you’ll want to wear all the time, Manolo Blahnik and on sale for 40% off , $495; gray plaid flat with pointy toe, $119.

Are you ready to get your plaid on?! To add to your plaid, remember that we have chosen some perfect holiday jewelry pairings in our SB Marketplace:

The two necklaces on the top are offered at 20% off and the necklaces on the bottom come with a free leather + pearl chocker! All items are handmade to order. See SB Marketplace for details.
Pearl Cuff
And, this Cindi Earl bracelet is just $99! This bracelet is just the little sparkly touch you’ve been looking for … Made with 10 oval freshwater pearls and silver wire, it is wrapped in a way that it catches the light to get that sparkle you want. Cindi is known for her collection of fine jewelry, but she takes that same eye and creates affordable lovelies as well, and this is a prime example. Order by December 12 to ensure delivery by December 24. See SB Marketplace for details.

Happy holiday dressing!
