Aja Aguirre, founder of the queer style blog Fit for a Femme (FFAF), delivered a very special holiday gift of four fierce, fearless femme fashion inspiration for a variety of occasions. Cheers to femme style!
(1) The Outfit: Holiday Office Party
Why It Works: Amping up classic winter whites with luxe silk trousers and soft gold sequins makes an easy, comfortable outfit feel festive and elegant, while leopard print — the must-have print of the season and a bona fide “neutral” as far as both I and Jenna Lyons are concerned — keeps things playful and a little bit rock ‘n roll.
The Look: Akris Trousers, TFNC Top (Asos), Chloé ‘Drew’ Mini Leather and Leopard-Print Calf Hair Shoulder Bag
(2) The Outfit: Morning Gift Exchange at the Homestead
Why It Works: What’s the difference between silk pajamas and silk trousers? To die for tailoring, of course. Add tissue-thin cashmere with a dash of faux fur in pretty blush shades and you’ll be toasty and oh-so-Instagram worthy. Akris Trousers, J. Crew ‘Tippy’ Sweater, Faux Fur Scarf from Anthropologie
(3) The Outfit: Holiday Meet the Parents or Family Brunch
Why It Works: Holiday plaid in a classic cut equals instant polish, while the length still lets you play on the floor with the little ones under the tree! Suede boots and simple cashmere add pretty but practical finishing touches. If a lace collar isn’t your speed, try a statement necklace or scarf.
The Look: Vintage Skirt, J. Crew ‘Tippy’ Sweater, Eleven Objects Lace Collar, BCBGeneration Boots
(4) The Outfit: New Year’s Eve Bash!
Why It Works: It’s NYE, it doesn’t have to work! For those of us who wait with bated breath for any and every occasion to bust out the sequins, fringe, glitter, shine, false eyelashes and sky-high heels, NYE is the holy grail of nights out. Wear whatever the heck you want, but definitely Do You.
The Look: First And I Sequin Kimono Sleeve Maxi Dress (Asos)
