It is holiday party season and time to shine! All the sparkle is welcome from office parties to family gatherings! Leave your LBD in the closet and look to sequins and metallics to elevate your holiday style.
Do Know That Less Is More
To keep your outfit festive but elegant, try to balance the shine with neutral tones. Choose clean, classic lines in your pieces. For example, with this fun metallic skirt I’m wearing here, I have paired it with a tailored, cropped blazer and a basic silk cami. In addition, my heels are also simple but chic. Stick to a three-color rule if you can. My whole outfit is made up of black, gold, and silver. Minimal and delicate jewelry is also a good idea. Doing these things will let your statement piece, whether a skirt, dress, top or shoes be the star of the show.
However, if you want a pop of color, tie it in with your shoes, bag or earrings.
Do Mix Texture
Mixing up textures in my outfits is always my favorite way to add a fun, unexpected twist to an ensemble. The great thing about sequins is you do not have to choose a traditional holiday color palette of red and green. A beautiful navy sequined blouse paired with denim and heels is a perfect holiday look for a casual family get together. Combining knits with sequins is also, in my opinion, a perfect holiday look!
Create Contrast And Have Fun With It
Do Accessorize Well
Not ready to jump on the holiday shine deep end? Try to start by playing around with glitter shoes, sequined belts, and sequined outerwear to incorporate shine into your holiday looks. A bag like one would be the perfect way to dip your toe in!
Don’t Overdue it
Try not to compete with the disco ball at the party. Avoid going overboard with color and shine. Don’t wear large accessories with your sequined pieces. Remember to keep it reasonably simple yet chic. Also, before you leave the house, look at your outfit in the mirror and take off anything that you think might be too much. You will feel much more comfortable at the party.
Don’t Wear The Wrong Under Garments
Stick to a neutral bra and panties. Sometimes with man-made fabrics, there are small holes. Flash photography can wreak havoc on a white bra under a thin red dress. However, I love to see a black bra showing through a sexy semi-transparent top, like this or LOVE this one. Just make sure you put thought into what you’re wearing under your outfit as well. Holiday pictures last forever and you do not want to be too revealing.
