Holiday Wear Can Keep You Warm AND Fashionable
The holiday season is filled with good cheer and lots of hot cocoa. But holiday fashion isn’t that much different from every day fashion. Whether you think you can or not, you can get the holiday style that makes you feel good and look great. With a few simple little tricks, you can turn any piece into holiday wear and strut your stuff with an outfit that doesn’t actually take hours to put together, but will look like it did.
With the holidays upon us, you may be looking in your closet thinking that you have nothing to wear. Stop dreaming of a complete wardrobe makeover and create one with the things already hanging in your closet.
Here’s what you do: Grab those old comfy jeans that fit oh so nicely and pair it with a plain colored sweater, maybe a shimmery gold or silver. Even white can be festive and allows more room for accessorizing. With the foundation done, I want you to grab a vibrant scarf. There are literally hundreds of new ways to tie this time-honored accessory, so feel free to find the one you like best. Since you’re dressing for the holidays, you’ll need to dress this outfit up. A thick belt goes nicely over a sweater and can really pull the look together. Add a pair of sparkly earrings for a festive feel. Next, you’ll need something for your feet. Nothing goes better with jeans than the perfect pair of shoes. A nice 2″ heel will give you a little lift and dress your outfit up a bit. Be sure that you have a purse in a coordinating, yet not entirely matching shade. This will create a casual yet somehow dressy look that will go great for any holiday gathering.
Need something a little more dressy yet not altogether fancy? Start with a pair of dark colored jeans and top it with a warm and cozy turtleneck. Add some sparkle with a chunky necklace and pair of glittery earrings. Don’t forget the bangles. A series of coordinating bracelets will announce your arrival in chic style. A pair of sassy pumps tells the world you’re in the spirit and ready to spread good cheer, while looking fabulous by the way. Top this ensemble off with a cozy peacoat and you’re ready to take on the season.
Accessories really are the key to success with any fashionable look. Be sure you stock up on scarves in a variety of colors and materials, a nice pair of leather gloves, shiny metallic jewelry and a hat that will turn heads.
Looking great and feeling good this holiday season doesn’t require a wardrobe overhaul. While we would all love to say “Out with the old, in with the new”, it’s not realistic for most of us. Add a few little twists to your existing wardrobe and you may only need to invest in a few accessories to make it perfect for the holidays. This year’s hot ticket items include a fabulous clutch, chunky necklace, diamond earrings–gold or silver bracelets and even leggings are making quite the comeback.
Wintertime can mean a darker sky, but you can still radiate your awesomeness with a touch of bold colors. Now get out there and take this season by storm!
