The season of sequins, velvet, and faux fur is upon us, so don’t let this once-a-year opportunity pass you by without unleashing your inner glamazon. Here’s how!
You don’t have to wear a crazy color to make a bold statement this holiday season.
If you are someone who tends to flock to neutral shades, kick those neutrals up a notch with texture and intricate details.
This outfit is all-black, but still maintains visual intrigue with the embroidery on the jacket, the velvet texture of the jacket and pants, and the mesh socks.
Black is (and always has been) the new black.
If you pick up an oversized sequin blazer at the store and think, “This is too extra,” it probably isn’t extra enough.
You know how style influencers turn every head in the room when they walk in?
By being extra.
Embrace your love of the extravagant, and you will be sure to have all eyes on you.
Remember Stay Warm
Don’t make the mistake of putting together a charming dress-and-booties outfit and forgetting to think about your outerwear.
Take it from an expert, you will freeze to death and not be able to enjoy your outfit at all.
Spring for an on-trend coat, such as one with faux fur, that will make your outfit even more glamorous (and cozy).
Wear Something You Wouldn’t Otherwise
The holiday season is the time to buy those wide leg, velvet pants that you know you’re probably only going to wear once. Because if those pants are truly amazing, once is enough.
The key is to not hold back on that outfit if you have one shot to make it work.
Jazz it up even more with a sparkly mini bag, chandelier earrings, and a plunging top for an unforgettable look.
