The holiday season is right around the corner and therefore, so are festive parties, dinners and other social activities. Dressing up and being festive at the same time, is no easy task but here are some tips that will make things easier and hopefully be of inspiration.
Here are some tips and hot trends to help you get inspiration when putting together festive outfits for this season:
8 festive fashion tips
Sweater dresses are comfortable and warm, yet still, look elevated and stylish. You can pair them with knee-high boots, over-the-knee boots, or really whichever is your preferred shoe due to how versatile this piece is. Add a third piece such as a coat and/or a hat for another layer that will add another element to your look.
Classic leather clutch or mini bag
A classic leather clutch or mini bag is the perfect bag to have for the holiday season. It looks elevated and stylish and is also something you will be grateful to have all year round. If you are looking to add one to your collection, Mirta is having a great sale on their purses for Black Friday!
Velvet looks and feels beautiful, and is one of the most common fabrics you see during the holidays. A velvet top or dress is a beautiful option, perhaps in black or rich color.
Speak of… Rich colours like burgundy and forest green are meant for the winter and holiday season. If you generally prefer to wear neutrals but still want a pop of colour here, try adding a scarf or a sweater in a rich colour to still get that depth.
Plaid prints are everywhere come fall season and well into the holiday season. Whether an oversized plaid, gingham paints, or perhaps a plaid scarf, this pattern is a go-to for holiday fashion.
Puffy sleeves add some drama to your looks and make an immediate fashion statement. You can style puffy-sleeved blouses with skirts, full trousers, paired under vests and so much more.
Glitter and sequins
Glitter and sequins are a way you can add that something special to your holiday outfits. And the holidays are the time to sparkle! Whether it is a sequin dress, metallic blazer, or a pop of sparkle on your favorite item to wear, this is no better time than the holiday season to bring these pieces out now.
Knee-high boots are a versatile shoe option that can be dressed up or down for the holiday season. Even with a dressed-down outfit, perhaps with your favorite jeans and a chunky wool sweater, knee-high boots will elevate your outfit and make it feel special. Then when you want to dress them up, pair them with a sweater or party dress and you are all set!
These items are all classic pieces to have for the holiday season, but something to not forget is outerwear! Choosing the right winter coat can be a process since you want to keep in mind which color is the most versatile with the rest of your wardrobe, fit, and quality.
