As the holiday season rolls around, it’s easy for most to get excited about spending time with family and friends. If you have a large social circle, you may find yourself getting invitations to attend Christmas parties thrown by close relatives, extended family, co-workers, and both new and old friends.
But, no matter who invites you or how many parties you decide to attend, check out these fashion tips that can help you decide what to wear. Not only do you want to look your best, but you also want to feel comfortable and confident. So, use these tips to your advantage to easily dress to impress while showing off your incredible sense of style.
Go for a Pop of Holiday Colour
While most people like to wear black because it’s a safe colour choice that looks flattering on all figures, consider going with something brighter and more in line with the holiday theme. For example, you may want to wear a beautiful deep green or vibrant red dress.
If you’re not a fan of red or green, there are still several other great Christmas themed colours to wear, including silver, gold, white, or even a stunning shade of blue. Choose something with a hint of colour that matches your personality and makes you feel like the confident and beautiful woman you are! I’ve just bought a midaxi skirt from Marks and Spencer’s with a colourful star pattern on it. The material is really comfortable and has swishy pleats. It’s perfect for wearing with trainers for meeting the girls for lunch or dressing it up with heels for a more dressy occasion.
Choose the Right Shoes to Wear
You can’t go wrong with a comfortable yet stylish pair of heels. Remember, you want to have fun at this party, which may include lots of dancing and moving around from one spot to the next while having conversations with other guests, so you need to choose your heels wisely.
You don’t need to select the tallest heels to make a statement. Instead, go with a pair that feels good on your feet and looks terrific with the outfit you’ve decided to wear, whether you’re rocking faux leather leggings, a dress, or a skirt.
Always Add the Accessories
The right accessories can truly enhance your overall look. You can wear a dress, skirt, pants, or leggings in confidence while pairing these garments with an incredible pair of shoes, stunning earrings, and a gorgeous necklace. For example, dangling earrings and a gemstone necklace would look perfect with a strapless dress that accentuates your shoulders and brings attention to the ears and neck.
You can keep it simple with a choker or wear something more extravagant with diamonds encrusted all over it!
I’ve kept it simple with a beautiful artisan woven silver ring and necklace from Daisy London. They are made from recycled sterling silver and the intricate and textured pattern is beautiful and they are both so much shinier than I expected! They also work in partnership with 4ocean! For each item you buy, they’ll send a donation contributing to 4ocean’s clean-up efforts, removing plastic from oceans.
In addition to jewellery, belts and cardigans are great items to pair with certain outfits that you might wear at Christmas parties. You can also complete your look with a bold and beautiful shade of red lipstick!
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Things Up
Show off your creative side by mixing different patterns and fabric textures to create a revolutionary look. For example, you may want to combine satin with lace, sequins, and other decorative pieces that make you stand out and sparkle for the holiday season.
For my outfit for more of a lunch get together with my starry skirt, I have paired it with a pair of white trainers that have silver glittery stars on the side of them and kept my top simple with a grey jumper I bought from Kiabi. As I’m breastfeeding Morgana, I needed a top that I’m comfortable in and can easily feed her, this jumper is perfect with ties at the side to discreetly open and feed. It is so soft and comfortable too!
You can also choose a sparkly gown with a sequined or knit cardigan and other bold accessories for your Christmas attire. The holiday season is the perfect time to be as extra as possible with what you wear and how you look, so why not?
