If you are heading to a Christmas party or two or three this festive season, the chances are that you want to turn heads for all the right reasons. You don’t want to break the bank when shopping for new outfits, but you also want to be on trend and you want to show off your fashionista credentials. Take your guide from the invites you receive. Some may be prescriptive and could be formal black tie events, whereas others are a little less formal, giving you more freedom with your fashion. Take a look at this guide to help you select some fashionable festive attire this Christmas.
Little Black Dress
The little black dress is synonymous with parties all year round. However, when the festive season kicks off, you need something to uplift your LBD. Forget the usual plain attire and go for something with a little bit more sparkle. Gold or silver sequins that adorn the torso area of a little black dress can bring a touch of glamor to any outfit. You might also want to consider lace adornments and blocks of festive color. Gold and sparkly greens and reds can look great against a black background. Consider playing with the fabric. Black velvet, cashmere and wool can add a touch of festive cheer to your attire.
As a party gets into full swing, you don’t want your footwear to prevent you from throwing some festive shapes. Think about leaving your strappy little numbers and stilettos at home and opting for something a little more comfortable. This doesn’t mean sneakers! Instead, look into something that will keep your feet warm in the colder weather, and enjoy support around your ankles. There are plenty of women’s extra wide calf boots available online that can look classy but still give your outfit that shabby boho edge. Black or brown boots can look great with your festive outfit. You can be as plain or as bold as you like. Simply ensure that your boots match your dress.
It is often the accessories that make an outfit more fit for the holiday season. If you adore sparkle and yet your outfit is lacking, why not go for a shimmering clutch bag or some bold diamond earrings. These additions to your attire can lift your party outfit from normal to extraordinary. Think about wearing a necklace or choker with your dress if you have a low neckline. If a clutch bag is too small for your essentials, opt for a larger bag. Add a touch of class and elegance with a rose gold or silver effect color.
Heading to a Christmas party can really help you get into the festive spirit. Ensure that you make your outfit bespoke to the season and enjoy adding touches of sparkle into your attire. You want to be able to dance, eat canapes, be on your feet for a long time and enjoy yourself without worrying about what you are wearing. Follow this guide and you can have a stunning Christmas party outfit for 2019.
