1 Christmas prints
If you’re feeling very Christmas-y, show your cheerful energy with some Christmas prints. Reindeers, snowflakes, mistletoes – you can pick whatever feels festive. The key is to keep the prints small and incorporate them into only one item of clothing instead of going head-to-toe.
2 Sequins and sparkles
The season demands you bring out all things glittery! Sequins have been a favorite on the runways and surprisingly, in a very casually wearable way too. Sparkling capes are an excellent way to glam up an otherwise bland outfit. Mid-length sequin dresses are easy to flaunt and gives you the liberty to play with colors. If you want to keep it mellow, simply opt for sequined trousers and pair it with a plain top.
3 Red velvet dress
You almost read it as cake, didn’t you? We guarantee you’ll love this dress just as much. Velvet has a reputation of going in and out of fashion, but the good news is that you can wear this dress guiltlessly this Christmas. A red velvet (synthetic, of course) mini dress with puffed sleeves and high heels sounds like a perfect festive outfit.
4 Embellished jackets
Well, jackets are a necessity considering the weather. And they pretty much cover the majority of the dress. So why not go all out on them! Beadwork, sequins, stones - when it comes to embellishments, we’ll say ‘the more, the merrier’.
5 All white
White isn’t just for summers. Long evening gowns in pure white will ensure you stand out in that Christmas gathering. But gowns aren’t the only things you can wear in white. A pair of high-rise pants coupled with a crop top is a popular style and looks very classy.
6 Fancy headgear
We don’t mean reindeer antlers, though that might look cute for a kid’s theme party. We mean large headbands, silk scarves, and hair barrettes with fancy stones. Instead of trying new up-dos (that we can never be too certain will hold when the celebrations get wild), go for fancy hair accessories instead. A simple trick is to match it with either the pattern or color of your dress, and it’ll automatically make everything look well put together.
Remember those diamond-patterned sweaters? Yes, those were argyle knitwear, which was, once upon a time, very fashionably. But as we know, history repeats itself in the world of fashion, and argyle cardigans, sweaters, and even dresses are now comfortably back in fashion.
