Want to look and feel fabulous in your festive outfits?
Got ya! December is such a sparkly, positive party month. Whether we like it or not this festive aura is everywhere so why not embrace it!
This last month of the year is for us to reflect on what we have achieved in our life, career and businesses. Give yourself a high five and a big hug for your strength, determination, focus and hard work in 2016. December, my loves is for you to celebrate your beautiful self, cherish those beautiful moments with your family, friends, fellow entrepreneurs and everyone who have supported you this year on your entrepreneurial journey.
Let this sparkly atmosphere be shown in your everyday festive outfits!
I have for you some simple Yet "Wow" outfit ideas that take you from Xmas drinks to New Year looking and feeling totally great:-)
Let's get started!
Easy smart-casual festive look, perfect for pre-Xmas drinks in the evening with your besties. Dress up your casual skinny jeans with sleeveless knitted top and a velvet jacket. Add a statement necklace and your fav ankle boots, and rock it girl!
Get ready for a Xmas Eve by stepping up your style a bit! Think of an interesting tone on tone look, ie beige/ neutral/ camel colours jazzed up by creative pick & play with textures, fabrics and patterns. Think shiny + mat; solid + pattern; neutral + bold. It is accessories that are the cherry on the cake here;-)
Xmas Day! Now is the time to wear that fabulous lace skirt hanging in your wardrobe lonely and unworn. Pull it out and if you feel it is "too dressy" for a family Xmas dinner then pair it with your cozy roll neck top in a beautiful colour. Accessorize with dangling earrings and your sparkly silver heels. You look fab lady!
If you want to move into the evening Xmas drinks with some proper "WOW" factor and feel more dressed up and sexy then jump into a frock that makes you feel this exact way. Think of any asymmetric cut, unusual forms and bold colours. Opt for a statement dress and simple accessories. Festive Chic!
Let's kick start Boxing Day with some layering! Pull out your classic black leather look skinny jeans and a button up white fitted shirt. This is an awesome base for adding more layers. Think of n embellished, sequin, sparkly or velvet cami as a layering piece over your fitted white blouse.
Play with textures, eg embellishment + fur OR sequin + cotton. Small details always make a great impact so don't forget to add a unique cocktail ring or a bracelet to accentuate your elegant hands. Sparkly creative!
Let's do more festive mixing & matching! Pleats, sequin, fur and suede in one outfit, ahh the more, the merrier girls!;-). A red colour on your lips and a glass of red wine in your hand, can you see what I see?;-)
Ok, by know you may feel tired of those dressed up glamorous looks but still want to keep the festive sparkly mood in your casual day look. Pair your sequin statement tee and a knitted cardi for a super stylish daily glam look. Don’t forget the lipstick!
New Years EVE time! Look *Smokin' Hot* in the all black look. Tailored black trousers + lace cami+ velvet blazer. This is the look that turns heads as long as the woman who wears it knows how to own it. Yes you can gorgeous!
New Years Eve- *Smokin' Classic*. Opt for a navy dress with some shiny embelisments or bling and go simple with the earrings. The classic diamond earrings is all you need to create that chic impact. Simple accessories that complement rather than compete with the dress is what you need.
New Years Eve- *Smokin' Statement*. If you are going to a fancier party and want to create a great impact then a dress like this one from Coast will do the job. Accessorize it with silver diamond earrings and a clutch bag in a similar colour. Look at the shapes and textures in the dress, then choose accessories that fit in. For instance, the skirt has some geo shapes, wide diagonal blocks and asymmetric hem hence I choose geo earrings that match the lines. When it comes to a bag, I think of the clash so that we don't end up with all over shiny look. I suggest you offset this "sleekness" by adding a textured jewelled bag.
