Simple Christmas Outfit Ideas To Try This Year

*Collaborative post.

Fashion doesn’t take holidays, and even around the festive season, we want to look our best and impress and family get-togethers. 

This year has been one different from any other and we have seldom had reason to get dressed up and have fun. But today we want to change that to show you that you can dress to impress this Christmas and have fun at home. 

Here are some ideas for fashionable outfits you can wear this winter to really bring that Christmas spirit to life. 

A retro getup 

There is nothing better than a bit of nostalgia – and Christmas time is a great opportunity to look back on the past and bring it into our wardrobes. You can look online for some 70s inspired velour jumpsuits to wear with a pair of hoop earrings and heels for your Christmas party. If you aren’t a jumpsuit kind of girl, a 50s style dress with a fit and flare style could be a wonderful way to bring some retro charm to Christmas. However, I always love 1970s Outfit Ideas.

Classic golden goddess 

There are not many times in the year when you get to wear metallic colours such as silver and gold without looking overdressed. Luckily for you, Christmas is one of those times where it fits perfectly. Wow your family and friends this Christmas with a stunning gold dress in a bodycon fit and consider bringing a body chain into the mix for extra glam. Getting dressed up for Christmas is fun so make sure that you make the most of things you couldn’t wear at any other time of the year.

Monochrome magic 

One of the classic ways to dress at Christmas time is to choose a monochrome outfit and add a bright red touch with shoes or lips. There are some amazing ways to pull off a monochrome look this Christmas and you can choose a colour block dress, a black skirt and white top, or even some skinny white jeans with a black plunge top. Have some fun playing around with the fit and style of your clothing and enjoy the simplicity and timelessness of it. 

A glitzy dress 

Christmas is a time to play around with glitz and glam – and a sequined dress could be the ideal option to bring some festive cheer to your celebrations. A fun sequin dress can be any colour or a combination of colours and will bring that little bit of Christmas magic to your life this year.

A festive jumper and skirt 

If you enjoy going a little more comfortable and practical close to Christmas it is a good idea for you to wear a festive jumper with a simple skater skirt. A festive jumper with all the fixings and garishness is in the true Christmas spirit and a cute little skirt to tick it in will bring a more childlike look to your Christmas Day. Plus, once you have eaten a huge roast dinner you can hide your bloat in the jumper and no one will know!

Olivia Palermo Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine UK June 2017 and she looks smoking hot on it!

I think this is a very pretty summery cover. The cover girl is looking so beautiful, I love her hair and makeup, and the colourful outfit.

In my early blogging days, I was a dedicated follower of Olivia Palermo’s website. I loved her personal style and enjoyed keeping up with her various looks. I have not been on her blog in years, but I still see her work around of social media, and I admire her dedication. She has made a business out of getting dressed, and is very successful at it. This Style Icon is the definition of a Girl Boss!

I would love to read Palermo’s interview with Cosmopolitan, I would love to find out how she made a business out of getting dressed.

Here are a some excerpts from her interview with Cosmo –

Childhood Struggles

“You know, everything was a bit harder for me because I grew up with a learning disability. I don’t want to go into details but… what was wonderful is that people can be very creative in different ways. And we [she refers to her childhood friend Jonathan Simkhai, a designer, to whom she was close to at school] really strived to be creative and that really evolved as we got older… and not necessarily in school.”

 

I didn’t know Olivia had a learning disability. I am happy to see she has not allowed that stop her.

 

Fashion Week Schedule

“Honestly, my schedule is so tight. I have a show on the hour every hour, and appointments. So my priority is the designers and the collections. Of course, it’s nice to change once in a while, and support the designers, if you can, by changing, but there’s not always enough time in the day.”

 

I can imagine how stressful fashion week must be for her. I don’t envy that part at all.

5 Fashion Mistakes you must avoid in 2017

Hey fashion lovers! Since we are still fresh in the new year, I thought we should chat about fashion mistakes to avoid this 2017. Because even the best and the most stylish fashionistas can make poor style choices sometimes.

Wrong Sizing

So many реорlе get their sizing so wrоng. You need to ensure you buy the right size of сlоthing. If thе сlоthing doesn’t fit, don’t buy it. And if you have bought it already, don’t wear it.

If уоu аrе losing weight, make ѕurе you buу сlоthеѕ thаt fit your new size or hold off shopping until you are done with the weight loss. When I am in between sizes, or trying to lose weight, I like to shop for dresses online, simply because I get better bargains and options, and dresses are easier to rock when I am in between sizes. Whеn buуing clothes, mаkе ѕurе you сhесk the ѕizing and ensure you get your right size for the store. Sizes mean different things in different stores and countries.

 

Wrinkled Clothes

You should never step out of your house lооking wrinkled! I hate ironing but I hate looking wrinkled a lot more, so I make sure my clothes are well ironed.

Hеrе iѕ a ԛuiсk tiр: if уоu want to dесrеаѕе the timе it tаkеѕ to irоn уоur сlоthеѕ, hang thеm uр оnсе уоu hаvе worn them, so they are not wrinkled when next you need to wear them.

 

Tоo Many Cоlоurѕ

Wеаring toо mаnу different colours will ruin your overall look. When I say too many, I mean more than 3 colours. Kеер уоur colouring ѕimрle by sticking to at least 1 bright colour, and 2 minimal colours at the most, except you are going for a colour blocking look.

Viѕiblе Pаntу and Brа Linе

Contrary to рорulаr bеliеf, it iѕ not ѕеxу оr attractive tо hаvе a viѕiblе panty or bra linе. Always wear lingеriе thаt ѕuits what you have on.

 

Choosing Wrong Designs

Each уеаr, fashion designers bombard us with new pieces and accessories in various designs. However many оf the high fаѕhiоn designs do not ѕuit thе regular wоmеn. Always opt for designs that suit your body shape and personality.

We all know that Mаxi drеѕѕеѕ wеrе оnсе a trend, but they аrе also now a wаrdrоbе ѕtарlе, and they аrе hеrе tо ѕtау. Every wardrobe should have a few maxi dresses. They are effortless, vеrѕаtilе аnd suits аll ѕhареѕ and ѕizеѕ, with no effort rеԛuirеd at all! It is also very easy to shop for dresses online, which is an added plus for me, you all know how much I love my online shopping, I would be lost without it.

 

Can you relate with any of these fashion mistakes? Which fashion mistake will you be avoiding this 2017?
