The Holidays is a FUN time for fashion, but sometimes we don’t take advantage of it simply because, time goes by fast! Before we know it, it’s the night before the family Christmas party and we need to do the dishes, clean the house, and then throw something on and get to the party.
I don’t want that to be you this year. I truly believe that what we wear enhances our experience, especially if you’re like me, and you are a woman who is just made that way, heavily influenced by style and what you wear.
Here are some GREAT Holiday looks that go beyond the typical red and black look, to get you inspired. Now, you have plenty of time, to find that necklace laying around your room that would look great for that holiday party!
Let me show you below how you can get some of these Fantastic looks!
Emerald is a Gorgeous color that still stays with the Holiday theme, yet, you don’t see many people in Emerald during the holidays, so you will typically stand out, depending on where you’re going. I like the look above because it shows a great example of the use of a brooch. Cover up the brooch and this dress loses A LOT of it’s pizzazz! Personally, I believe that the brooch makes the dress. If the brooch wasn’t on the dress, I likely would have passed this up on Pinterest. 🙂 Pair this with a thick 3 stranded pearl necklace and you will be looking absolutely fantastic! Also, add on a glitzy bracelet and some diamond earrings. You CAN mix diamonds with Pearls or faux diamonds with pearls. It looks Fantastic!
This is my all time favorite of the looks that I found for you today. How Elegant! I love that this look even shows you what coat would look great with it. Just be sure to take a picture posing with your coat on as well when you wear this outfit. Have fun! You will feel like a movie star! Even do a picture where you pretend you are in the motion of taking off your coat. Take it off, so that one shoulder is showing and so that you can see the Gorgeous dress peeking through the coat. This may become your husband’s wallet picture of you. 😀 Or, it may be too sassy for the wallet! 😉If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a vintage style dress like this for the holidays, go for it! I don’t like the necklace that is paired with this dress, because it looks like plastic and not in a good way. Try pearls with this look or a stunning Hollywood like “diamond” necklace like this. You will look simply charming in this and you won’t regret it! You will LOVE your holiday pictures! 😀
Woooosh! I already feel inspired! I have a few more looks to show you to wet your palate and get you ready and Glam for the holidays. Here they are!
Modern & Chic
If you are not into the vintage look and if you pride yourself in being modern, chic and even a bit edgy, this would be a good pick for you. The navy blue color still has that warm holiday feel and the white part, in addition to creating an hourglass silhouette, gives this look a modern, fresh twist. The gold belt is also a nice way of giving that holiday warmth feeling while staying true to your style. I love that this look is still pretty classic and timeless.
I feel like I prepped you a little bit for this one with my last article, but this might still be shocking. Why not wear vibrant, BRIGHT colors during the Holidays? They do in India! They wear colors during the holidays that you think would only be reserved for spring! Be Indian this Christmas! Wear color!
Ohhh, isn’t this light pink dreamy? You will feel like a Princess in pink. Add silver jewelry to top it off with a snowy, icy look or add gold jewelry to give it a more warm and inviting feel. Your choice! Have fun!
And, Since Life is Short!
Wear a Bedazzled Dress!
This dress is definitely an extreme example and the neck may be too low for comfort for a lot of people, but I wanted an extreme example to get you dreaming. 🙂 Sequins are a great way to get a bedazzled look for the holidays and a sequins dress or top is not that hard to find. If you see something that is Bedazzled, don’t pass it up, because you think it’s “too much”. Try it on and if you feel great and the price is right, ROCK IT! Life is wayyyy too short! When you are sitting in your hospital bed, I can guarantee you WON’T regret wearing Bedazzled Dresses!
Have Fun! Be Yourself! There’s No Such Thing as Overdressed and let your Beauty Shine!
