It’s the end of November which can only mean one thing. The festive season is just around the corner! From work parties to gatherings with family and friends, finding the right outfit can at times prove tricky. So whether you fancy splashing out on a new look, or plan to work your wardrobe for your holiday outfits here are my top tips for a stylish festive season.
Experiment with Luxurious Textures & Fabrics
This time of year always presents a great opportunity to experiment with luxurious textures and fabrics such as cashmere, velvet and corduroy. A velvet suit is perfect for party season and can be restyled as separates too. If that feels a bit too much think about a cashmere cardi paired with faux leather trousers, killer heels and sparkly accessories or corduroy trousers in one of this seasons must have jewel shades (think sapphire blue, forest green and burgundy) teamed with a satin pussy bow blouse.
Dress Up a Little Black Dress
Dress up a favourite LBD with a leopard print belt, diamante earrings or party tights. They’re all the rage this season – from polka dots, to fishnets, anything goes!
Amplify your Make-up
Don’t forget to amp up your make-up by making a bolder statement somewhere. A richer shade of lipstick or a smoky eye with a dab of natural gloss will work a treat. And if a lower key look is more your thing try swapping up your black mascara for plum or navy or adding a splash of metallic liner to the outer corners of your eyes.
Add Some Sparkle
A Sequin vest top and long line jacket looks fab worn with jeans and boots. Or a satin dress with heels and biker jacket for hitting the dance floor. Just remember shiny fabrics add volume to the area they’re covering so if bottom heavy adding some sparkle on your upper body will work wonders for balance your figure.
Comfort is Key
While this is true for all seasons you want to ensure being comfortable even in your most stylish moments so make sure you balance your outfits to ensure your free from worrying about being cold or how painful you feet are.
