Most of us light up like a Christmas tree when the holiday season rolls around, but we know it’s also one of the most stressful times of the year. From baking to parties to shopping and wrapping, the holidays get hectic. With all the “to do” items on your list, dressing up for the holidays shouldn’t add to your stress level. Whether you’re hitting the Christmas sales or attending glamorous soirées, we’re here to help you find just the right holiday look.
We adore red and green, but you don’t have to be married to a color scheme just because it’s Christmas. If you have a favorite color or one that you know works beautifully against your skin tone, go for it. It’s easy to make hot pink, turquoise or citrine the base of your most festive holiday attire. Embellish with a few holiday accessories to tie it all together.
Ditch The Color
The holidays allow you to go bright and colorful or opt for no color at all. That little black dress is still on point for the holiday season. Pair that dress noir in some red heels or stunning costume jewelry in bright jewel tones to give your classic black a holiday makeover.
If there was ever a time to throw out a “less is more” fashion philosophy, it’s during the holidays. When it comes to Christmas cheer, the more the merrier! If you want to combine a Christmas plaid, faux fur, velvet or even leather trim, it’s all in the spirit of the season. Keep it modest and professional when you’re in the office, but the after-hours holiday bash can be more extravagant. If you’re worried about being tacky, just remember that we turned the “ugly Christmas sweater” into a fashion phenomenon.
Let Your Holiday Spirit Shine
If wearing ALL the Christmas things isn't your style, you can still take your holiday fashion to the next level. Add a touch of sequins, satin, velvet, or a metallic sheen to turn up the volume on your holiday style. The Christmas season practically demands a little glitz and glamour, so don’t be shy.
As you prepare for your holiday parties, remember to choose items that bring you joy. This is the time of year when you can extend your fashion boundaries. Let yourself have fun with your personal style and we promise you will #LoveWhatYouWear.
