With the holiday season in full force, it is time to find some cute holiday party outfits! I would describe my style as elegantly thrown together. I don’t like to look to picture perfect all the time, I like to put my own twist of everything. If I wear a polished outfit, I might keep my hair a bit more messy. If I have my hair pulled back into a bun, I might wear an outfit that is a little bit more baggy in nature! Here are a few of my fashion rules for the holidays.
#1- Never splurge on an in-season fabric pattern that will be out by spring (you wear in once, possibly twice and then it is out of season/style) I found this dress on Bloomingdales.com. You can look at it here. No matter what you wear this dress to, it will be remembered. Making this dress have a very little shelf life. You can’t show up to multiple parties and holiday gatherings wearing a pattern like this! Everyone will remember, trust me!
#2- Splurge on basics like the little black dress in a timeless silhouette, you can wear it for many seasons and even wear it to more then one event each holiday season . I found this one here for a steal at only $158! This dress is perfect to make your own by adding accessories!
Here is another LBD I love for this holiday season! Just think of all the ways to change the look by changing up your accessories!!! I am just imagining the possibilities!!! But for an investment, you might only get to wear this one season because of the one shoulder silhouette. So make your fashion investments wisely!
#3- accessories, accessories, accessories! They are your best friend, they can take the LBD or any outfit for that matter, and change your whole look in an instant.
I am the queen of accessories, and right now I am loving extra large earrings and also I am a HUGE fan of cocktail rings! Before I left for Mexico I splurged and stocked up on fun costume jewelry! Here are a few finds I just recently discovered.
This necklace would look awesome with a LBD and a pair of gold heels.
I am also loving the look of this bracelet. You only need simple gold earrings (if at all) and some heels to complete a holiday look with this!
These earrings will bring holiday cheer to anyone who wears them! I would pair these with a LBS, skinny gold belt cinching the waist and a pair of black or gold heels! Perfection!
Finally for a ring, I love this ring! I think the bolder and bigger they are, the better! This ring is relatively cheap at only $25 bucks and comes in three different colors! I love the black and white the best (not shown in brown).
Remember these are just ideas! You can always find items that look like these at different stores and for less! Don’t forget to add a cute clutch to finish off you outfit in a neutral color! It’s winter, no one needs to be carrying around spring colored clutches (just my opinion)! : )
#4- I think a good splurge on a pair of sexy shoes is totally worth it. Check out these I found at barneys.com They are simply amazing (that is before I look at the price)! These shoes remind me of Tinkerbelle snowstorm! If I saw someone walking down the street with these shoes on, I just might have to attempt my first mug! I am kidding….sorta! Ha!
So that is the end of my fashion rules! I can’t wait to post the creations (outfits) I come up with during the holidays! Remember, as long as you are feeling confident in what you are wearing, others will admire your fashion style!
What is your favorite type of costume jewelry? Do you have a go to look for the holiday party circuit and gatherings?
