8 Styling Tips for the Holidays

In need of some inspiration for striking yet festive fashion? Look no further! We’ve curated the best ideas to help you dazzle while decking the halls. Read through our list of eight styling tips for this year and stand out at any occasions.

 

Ditch the Denim

You wear denim 11 months out of the year, so why not store them temporarily until your party circuit is over? Instead of going for your go-to skinny jeans, try on a pair of some tapered black trousers.

Tis the Season to Sparkle

Maybe it’s the tinsel everywhere, but there is no better time of year to embrace glitter than during the holidays. Incorporate shimmering pieces into your festive look by wearing a sequined skirt, metallic blazer, or a crystal-embellished pair of shoes. Be careful not to go too overboard, though – you’re not trying to actually look like a Christmas tree.

Inject Some Colour 

When we discuss color here, we’re not talking about just red and green. Try broadening your spectrum this year and embrace graphic patterns. If you’re hoping to get kissed beneath that mistletoe, you’re going to need to stand out. The little black dress is becoming a bit boring, so add elements of this season’s popular jewel tones, neons, or acid brights to turn things up.

 

Embrace the Velvet

Velvet is a fashion trend that has barely left the fashion scene since it emerged as a trend in the 90’s. This soft, shimmering fabric is perfect for the holidays in deep tones of purple or burgundy. Try it as a dress or wear it as a blazer. If velvet isn’t totally your thing, find a fabric shoes or an accessory embellished with the material.

 

Experiment with Textures and Layers

Save the simplicity for the other times of year – the holidays are for fun and festivity! Be bold and try experimenting with new layers such as leather, lace, faux fur, and embellished-everything. If you’re going for a more muted white-on-white look, be sure to layer different cream hues, textures, and weights to avoid looking too matchy.

 

Finish with Statement Outerwear

Baby, it’s cold outside, and a chic coat is a must have. It’ll be the first thing people see when you arrive at your holiday soiree, so be sure to make a stunning first impression. Aim for a perfectly tailored trench coat (and don’t forget about your local neighborhood seamstress if you need a little alteration). To enhance your silhouette and keep your coat looking new with each wear, try picking up a couple of belts or brooches to cinch your waist. Not feeling the classic coat? Go bold with a bomber jacket, or add glamour with thick faux fur.

 

Let your statement pieces reflect your personality. Sometimes, statements are more funny than they are stylish—yup, we’re talking ugly Christmas sweaters for women. Make a hilarious Christmas statement at your next holiday shindig, whether you opt for a sweater that boasts a Christmas unicorn or funny phrase.

Add Eye-catching Jewellery 

Never been brave enough to wear those dramatic statement necklaces? Now is the time to explore large necklaces with excessive amounts of dangles, beads, studs, spikes, or any other intricate details made from a variety of materials. These necklaces are made in an infinite amount of colors and combinations, so you’ll be sure to find a piece that can enhance any ensemble. Pro tip: when wearing bold jewelry, keep the rest of your look simple, or risk appearing excessively gaudy.

 

Wrap it up with a Bow

Make your presence the present when you add a ribbon to your outfit. They’re the easiest way to dress up any look, from a black dress to a camisole. Simply gift wrap yourself by tying it around your waist – either centered or to the side – as a replacement of a belt and find a form-flattering figure underneath. You can also string a bright satin ribbon through your pants’ loopholes or garnish a bun with a pretty bow for a can’t-miss holiday accessory.

Make spirits bright and spread the holiday cheer this year by adding a little festival flare to your everyday wardrobe!
