It’s the most wonderful time of the year… That’s right, the holidays are right around the corner! It’s time to gear up for those coveted days full of fun festivities and the nights filled with good drinks and even better company. With all the holiday hubbub, surely there will be a host of gatherings and parties to attend. And while these events are always fun, sometimes they can be stressful when having to plan out all the different outfits, special to each and every holiday party. After all, you can never repeat an outfit when it comes to these types of festivities!
When the holidays hit, you never know who you might run into. An old friend might be in town, or maybe even someone from your past you would have never dreamed to see again. And boom—there he is, across the room, filling his plate with hors d’oeuvres. That’s why holiday party attire is important. Make your best impression this holiday season with these five fashion dos that will ensure you’re the life of every party.
A Flirtatious Dress
Every woman knows that the power of a great dress can be dangerously magnetic. For the biggest holiday party on your calendar, pull out the frock that makes you feel the fiercest. Lyst’s popular picks are metallic looks, fit-and-flare silhouettes and hot red lace numbers. Each style is perfect for flattering any figure while remaining festively flirtatious.
A Statement Necklace
When you just need to make some quick stops, there’s no need for a new dress. Simply style your favourite little black dress with an eye-catching statement necklace. The holidays are all about glimmering lights and glistening snow, so feel free to play up the frosty fashion with a seriously decadent piece; Business Insider suggests a silver, sparkly one that ties in the back with a bow: “It’s like the gift-wrapped present of necklaces.”
Large Cocktail Ring
For the shindigs that aren’t as fancy, consider adorning your attire with a stunning cocktail ring. An easy way to add style to any old outfit, a holiday-inspired, jewel-tone cocktail ring looks great when you are speaking with your hands or simply holding your drink. It can also be a wonderful conversation starter, because it’s a unique but fun fashion piece. Not to mention, it’ll draw attention to that trendy manicure you just got!
Killer in the good way, that is. Try a heel that’s not only sexy but that can keep you standing for long periods without doubling over with discomfort. Holiday parties are a great time to mingle and meet new people, so show off your style with “sensible pumps,” as Allure advises. You’d hate to be painfully uncomfortable when you finally get into a good conversation.
The Covet-Worthy Clutch
Perhaps the cherry on top to a haute holiday getup, you can really wow with a wintery clutch. What exactly is “wintery” in terms of clutches? Think “glitzy,” says SheFinds. The more shine, the better. Try a festive motif style, or go for gold with a metallic box clutch. Holiday parties are the ultimate opportunity to play up the glam and leave the basics behind; have fun with your accessories!
