Who knew that pairing a plaid scarf with a full skirt and black tights could be so chic?! Just add some sparkle with a necklace or a trio of brooches and you're all set. (Bonus if you go with brooches: they keep your scarf in place when attached to the sweater!) Of course, there are always things I wish I could reach into the photos and fix - like switching to plain black pumps (no pouf), plus I've been meaning to buy a longer black skirt for AGES. (Today's look this finally motivated me to place an order: the 3rd similar skirt option below.) And while it may not hold a candle to the inspiration, both outfits have elements that are so perfectly festive for the holidays!
Sweater: LOFT, $20 (similar, similar, similar)
