Who doesn’t love Christmas parties? The mince pies, gingerbread cakes and roasted turkey coupled with fairy lights on an evergreen fir tree; gifts wrapped elegantly waiting to be opened by the warm fireplace where children drink some hot cocoa; friends and family dressed in glamorous yet warm outfits as they sip on some mulled wine while caroling through the night. Whether it’s a party with your co-workers or with a bunch of friends, it can get a little frustrating and expensive to find several different outfits for the many parties this and next week. To help elevate your look into a Christmas-ready one, here are some of our festive tips:
Invest in slinky blouses
Whether paired with jeans, a skirt, under a dress or even with a pair of fashionable trousers, these always do the trick to give you a party-ready yet sophisticated look. Dress them up with some chandelier earrings or a statement necklace, along with pumps for trousers or a pair of chic knee-high boots and you’re good to go.
One of the trends for the season, rock your mini dress with some stiletto boots and a furry coat for a glam look that can be worn to your Christmas brunches or those fancy evening parties.
If you’re an 80’s baby or just love the style from the decade, look for dresses, tunics or blouses with a bold shoulder and an equally bold color. Pair these with some neutral or black stilettos to really stand out from the crowd.
Follow Chanel Iman’s holiday style as she dons a satin belt over her shirt-dress for a fun yet chic party ensemble. Look for extra detailing that could add to your outfit whether it’s flared sleeves or a ruffled hem.
Sequins and More
What screams ‘party’ better than a sequined outfit? Nothing! Don’t be afraid to deck yourself in some sequins as you celebrate this holiday season. To avoid looking frumpy or tacky, pair a sequined garment with some neutral accessories like a purse and pumps; or if you would like to look less sparkly, accent your neutral outfits with some sequined footwear, jewelry or a clutch and you are sure to be a stunner.
Style your outfits with accessories and a coat that keeps you warm throughout the evening and don’t forget to ring in the good cheer. After all, it is Christmas- a time to celebrate with your loved ones and have some warm yet stylish memories.
