It Is That Time of Year Again

Finally, the much-awaited last quarter of the year has arrived; It is that time of year again when gathering with close friends and family, indulging in good food, and actually getting dressed up in festive holiday outfits is on the top of our list. Well…If you are like me, you must have already started creating your Christmas playlist. Guest lists must have been planned out, gifts have been added to the cart (online shopping is my mantra!) and wardrobes have been stocked with those cute and pretty holiday outfits.

Celebrations Are Partial Without Fashion

Each year, the holiday season inexorably transforms into an energetic, sparkling, and apparently never-ending twine of celebrations. But then again, categorically celebrations are partial without fashion. I am talking about those classy sweaters, silk tops, tweed skirts, and much more. Whether you are into sparkles, velvet, knits, or prints, you are guaranteed to find fun options for every occasion. From family dinners to parties with your friends, there are so many wonderful festive outfits to wear - isn’t it!

This is the season to embrace the power of a transformative party look, to revive the joy of dressing up with bright colors, prints, and textures. As we near the end of the year, it goes without saying that holiday parties are going to look a little diverse this season. But what better excuse to do a little glam than the holidays, even if it is just a family Zoom call!

So, without any further ado, check out how to style holiday looks for further inspiration.

For An Intimate Dinner Party

Half the fun of the holiday season is embracing sparkly fashion. Take things to new heights by swapping out your traditional dull attire with sequins and embellishments. Add glamour to your holiday outfit with a silver, gold, or red cocktail dress; embroidered with a stunning metallic finish or beads. Choose whichever silhouette you feel most comfortable in, and add a personal twist with the right kind of accessories.

Style Your LBD

Last but not the least, My personal fav – our own Little Black Dress. An LBD is a staple of every modish wardrobe. It looks flattering on every body type and can be dressed up, dressed down accordingly. As the weather gets colder, style your LBD in a way that keeps you cozy and still looks classy.

Few of the ways to style your Little Black Dress for winter-

  • An LBD is a staple of every modish wardrobe.
  • Throw a patterned scarf over your dress.
  • Style your LBD with a beanie and stout boots.
  • Team it up with a cute patterned knit cardigan.
  • Style it with a pair of statement booties for that extra glam.

For a Staycation with the Family

Whether it is for a simple staycation or travelling to an exotic destination for holidays; I always rely on crossover pieces. They are clothes that work across multiple outfits. For example, those easy- to -wear shorts or a great pair of jeans that are comfortable and easy to wear; as well as t-shirts that you can easily throw on over any outfit. For cooler climates, cute cardigans are a great option.

To make sure you can match outfits quickly throughout your holiday follow a simple colour palette or a monochromatic scheme but don’t forget to add a few pops of colour or interesting patterns through a tee, skirt, or jacket in between to update the look so that you don’t feel too neutral on holiday. Bring some accessories such as Fashion scarves, beanies, and statement jewelry and to enhance the look.
