Glam It Up In Time For The Holidays
It’s official. The Holidays are here. There are parties and get togethers and an endless list of invitations to various gatherings where you will need to dress in every style from loose and comfortable, to business casual, to black tie formal. However, this is the one time of the year that people love going all out and if you are invited to some Christmas parties that beg for a glamorous look, you will want to get your bling out, get gussied up, and dress to the nines during this special time of the year. After all, it is the season.
The outfit is the Single most Important thing.
You have to have the perfect outfit if you have been invited to this year’s top holiday bash and that can take some time searching the stores. The clothes you choose will tell your story. You can downplay your look by pairing a cream colored, flecked with gold cashmere sweater with a demure pair of white winter slacks and a colorful piece of statement jewelry. Or, you can perfume your skin, put on your glittery diamond stud earrings, sweep your hair up, and put on some strappy stilettos for a classic LBD. Take the time to search the stores that are chock full of holiday outfits to find an outfit that not only works for the season, but that also reflects your personality.
Your Makeup And Hair Matter
Once you have your outfit, it is time to think about the makeup and hair. Go all out but do not choose this time of year to experiment with a new color, style, or cut. Try a pop of color or add some extensions to add some glamour to your look. However, a French twist or a classic chignon makes a very polished statement when you enter the glam Christmas party. Add some glitter (but don’t go overboard) if you want some pizzazz.
Plan on making a statement by splashing on your signature perfume, jazzing up your look with a dramatic and smokey eye, and either go with muted neutrals or pastels or a bold red look for your nails and lips. Look through fashion magazines for a look that catches your eye and ask your stylist to recreate that look on you or to give you suggestions. The sky is the limit when it comes to makeup, hair, and nails. (Your stylist loves this sort of things and this is the season for them to shine and sparkle as they practice their craft. They look good if you look good.)
Wear A Little Bling To Let It Stand Out
You can really get glammed up by including some jewelry in your look. Sparkle and bling ramps up the impact of an outfit better than anything else. For some pizzazz, try a beaded necklace or a rhinestone chandelier earring set. Bling reigns during this holiday season, so be sure to include some sparkly bangles in your final look.
Stand out from the crowd, by selecting the fashion accessories and outfits that will show you off in style with sparkle.
