Needing some last minute ideas for ringing in the New Year in style? Here are my Top Ten fashion musts of the season!
Holiday Fashion Musts!
Holiday Fashion Musts!
10. Belt It
Want to look girly and fabulous in any outfit? Get a statement belt… this works with any figure, and any ensemble. Try it with a t-shirt and jeans or with a nice jersey dress and flats. My personal trending favorite: Belt a baggy flannel shirt and pair it with a pair of skinny jeans and flats!
9. Metal Mania
Metalic flats dress up the dullest of outfits and work well with anything from a conservative office outfit to a mini dress for a night out. Try gold, silver, or a metallic bright like neon green or pink.
8. Gloves, Gloves, Gloves
Whether they are leather, vintage, knit, or cotton, gloves top off any winter look and are completely practical and functional. PS - they also make a great gift!
7. Chain Gang
I just can’t get enough of the chain look. Pick one statement piece to try out this trend - an oversized bag, chunky boots, or an embellished tee shirt.
6. Bright Nights
Nothing brightens up a cold dark night like bright color. Neon yellow, pink, or green look amazing with black, grey, and chocolate brown. Give it a try, even if it’s just a scarf.
5. Glitter Galore
For an eye catching look- spice it up with sequins. This trend is really popular right now- so there is no shortage of choices. Just be sure to keep it simple. Only one sequined piece at a time!
4. Dance The Night Away
Everyone- no matter what your age, height, size, or shape must own a pair of killer heels. Don’t shy away from “too high” or “too much” – when it comes to party fashion there are no rules for your feet. I love platforms, peep toes, and ankle boots.
3. Outer Wow
Outerwear is a big part of the holiday season, so why not make it fabulous? I like wool belted trench coats in black or tweed. Beautiful tapestry coats trimmed in fur, or ruffled girlie trapeze coats in any color of the rainbow. Baby it’s cold outside!
2. Take A Bow
Nothing says, “Look at me,” like bows. They work for your hair, as a necklace, an appliqué embellishment, on a belt, dress up a bag or clutch. This is a trend that uses a classic symbol and works for everyone.
1. Drum Roll Please
The number one holiday fashion must is: a veiled hair fascinator or hat. It’s a vintage accessory but when paired with a modern cocktail ensemble it becomes so high fashion. If you want to exude mystery, sex appeal, and show off your fashion edge you can’t do it any better than with birdcage veil. Try a feathery concoction or a sequined comb- even better a feminine little top hat…it’s the cherry on top!
