The Holiday season is finally upon us and Christmas is right around the corner! December is known for special occasions: Christmas eve with the family, the office holiday party, Christmas dinner with friends and of course, New Year’s Eve!
With all of these events one after the other, it can be easy to forget how to dress for each one of them. Should you wear a dress, a skirt or a pair of pants? The red, the black or the white? Fear not! Here is a guide for holiday looks you can try if ever you run out of ideas.
If you like comfort, I suggest going for a simple blazer matched with a pair of pants. You can’t go wrong with a blazer as it can be worn for various types of events. It’s a definite must-have in your wardrobe. You never know when you might need it!
Who says that you can’t wear a wool sweater for Christmas? Pair it with a cute skirt or overtop of a blouse and you will transform your whole look. One more reason to wear your favourite sweater!
Now, if you want to stand out not only with your dance moves but with your outfit as well, why not wear something out of the ordinary to impress your family? Your sequin pants and your fur jacket will be the talk of the night. Complete the look with a subtle top so as not to overpower the rest of your outfit.
If your Christmas eve is a bit more sophisticated, a stunning long dress paired with a complimentary accessory is all you need to be the Blake Lively of the holiday season. Choose darker shades like black, navy, forest green or burgundy over bright colours in order to achieve a classic-contemporary look.
For those that prefer to remain a little more discreet, the famous LBD is a foolproof solution for any occasion. If you want to add a pop a colour, top off the look with a bright-coloured blazer or cardigan or some jewellery that will accentuate your holiday look.
Remember that velvet dress you had when you were little? Well ladies, it’s time to dig it back up. The velvet dress has and always will be an indisputable look for the holiday season. It’s soft and comfortable…what more can you ask for?
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
