These next couple months always seem to be booked solid with social gatherings, events, parties, and other obligations. Sometimes it can feel like you are always on the go and you find your weekends booked solid (or overbooked) with things you are invited to attend.
Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve all quickly approaching, you need to have the perfect outfit for every occasion. If you don’t like to be a serial outfit repeater then you should have a well-stocked closet with the latest fashion trends. Follow the tips and tricks below to have the best style this season.
Sparkles & Embellishments
Sparkles signify that the holiday season is in full swing! Whether that sparkle or embellishment is on a cocktail dress, a knit sweater, or accessories, it’s definitely a must-have. With designated “holiday collections” on clothing websites, like Velvet, shopping for the perfect sparkly outfit online is easier than sorting through the racks at the mall. Save yourself the time and the stress.
Perfect Party Dresses
New Year’s Eve is the night of all nights to show off a stunning dress. So you obviously need to pick up a fabulous and fancy dress for this special occasion. Some people immediately think shorter cocktail dresses are the NYE trend, however, elegant floor-length gowns are the actual show stoppers. Start your search on Ever-Pretty, where you can get full-length evening gowns that will wow the crowd without breaking your budget. Also, see note above about how sparkle is always a holiday favorite.
Autumn and winter are all about the layers. Layer your cotton long-sleeve dress with a blanket scarf, tights, boots, and a jean jacket for that Friendsgiving dinner or other casual social gatherings. Cozy sweaters paired with colorful scarves are always a good idea and a good look to don throughout the season. ModCloth will have you covered (pun intended) on all your fun and funky outerwear needs. Ensuring you get to and from party to party warm and toasty.
Velvet and Faux Fur
You may not automatically reach for pieces of clothing that are velvet or are covered in fur, but try to go out of your comfort zone this season. Velvet and faux fur are both trendy and holiday season festive. Style icon and fashion designer, Lauren Conrad, is a fan of adding these pieces into your wardrobe. For Christmas, try her faux fur blush coat which is part of her Kohl’s collection – it’s a must-have.
