The holiday season may be one of the busiest times of the year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish while celebrating.
Whether you’re attending a family get together, office soirée, New Year’s bash, or simply going about your everyday routine, these tips and trends will have you perfectly dressed for every occasion.
When choosing your outfit, try not to use all the same fabrics, as you don’t want to look drab or add the appearance of unwanted weight. Experimenting with textures and materials is a great, and easy, way to add appeal to your outfits even if you are keeping a low key monochromatic (all same color) look. And there’s lots to play with: velvet, knit, wool, silk, sequins, lace, and leather.
There’s an art to mastering the layered look, looking stylish, and staying warm. One way to start is to make it all about a single statement piece or conversation starter then build from there. When layering, it’s also important to choose clothes that flatter your figure. A perfectly layered look will both compliment your curves and create the illusion of a more proportional silhouette. Length and proportion are key.
Sometimes, it’s the accessories that make the outfit. These little extra touches—a standout scarf, bracelets, rings, hat, or a watch—can make all the difference when it comes to embracing your most fashionable, confident self. Accessories can turn a casual looking outfit into a chic ensemble.
Know where to splurge and where to save. When you splurge wisely and invest in clothing and accessories that are long-lasting and versatile, you can elevate your entire look. Once you’ve selected your bigger purchases, you can then acquire lower-priced signature staples to round out your holiday wardrobe. Think a $26 dress from a vintage store paired with Christian Louboutin heels.
