How to Look Festive and Chic for the Holidays

The holidays are just around the corner which means it’s time to plan all of your holiday outfits! While some parties may be themed to help you plan accordingly, others just expect you to dress appropriately for the season. You could wear your standard LBD, but with a dozen parties and events in a matter of weeks, you can run out of options pretty quickly. Instead of going shopping for a whole new holiday wardrobe, here are a few ideas that will help you utilize the favorites you already have in your closet.

UTILIZE FALL AND WINTER COLORS

Who says you have to stick to black/white and red/green? For Thanksgiving, wear your favorite burnt orange sweater, tan sweater dress, or hunter green cardigan. Wear warm and inviting colors around your loved ones so you always look approachable and friendly. You never know who might show up to dinner.

For Christmas and New Year’s, wear pops of jewel tones instead of your standard black LBD. Gold, silver, bronze, even sapphire, ruby, and amethyst look gorgeous during this time of year.

EMBRACE ACCESSORIES

Accessories can make or break a look. If you need to re-wear a dress or sweater, pack a punch with a fun hat, shawl, statement necklace, or an unforgettable pair of heels.

TRY OUT NEW PROPORTIONS

Do you always wear a turtleneck? Try a cowl neck this time around! Do you always wear a┬ástrapless mini-dress on New Year’s? Try a one-shoulder look to throw off the eye and look more interesting in photos.

During these times of high stress, there’s no need to re-do your entire wardrobe. You can always find ways to play around with what you have. You can still look updated and on-trend while still staying chic and appropriate for whatever occasion you may have on your calendar. Happy holidays and stay glamorous!
