Are you getting ready for a full calendar of holiday parties? From low key gathering with friends to cocktail and office parties and family get togethers, December is generally a pretty busy month.
It can be a little overwhelming if you have a full social calendar with all the outfit planning. You want to feel festive, but you don’t want to spend a ton on new outfits (or maybe you are like me and you do but that is another post all together…). Luckily there are a few key elements to holiday style that you can quickly incorporate to take you from every day to holiday ready. And they are really easy too.
Adding a red lip is a great way to amp up your beauty game and feel a little more festive. I love a red lip any time, but especially for the holidays! I think a brighter red (as opposed to a darker red) is really great. Even the simplest outfit feels holiday ready with a red lip.
Is there a better time to dress up than this time of year? Incorporate a little (or a lot) of sparkle to your look like a sequin dress! Whether it is a glitzy necklace or a sequin dress, you can’t go wrong with some sparkle. Even if you aren’t going to a dressy party, pair a sequin piece (like a skirt) with something casual (like a turtleneck or sweater).
Working a little velvet into your look is another way to make an outfit feel a little more holiday ready. Plus it pairs well with just about anything. Whether it is a simple hair bow or a full dress, velvet is a good choice for the holidays.
You can’t go wrong with plaid, especially for the holidays. I really can’t get enough of it this time of year. It is perfect for all those parties too! And there are so many great options out there from dresses to tops to accessories.
So those are just a few of my easy holiday styling tips! Do you have any favorite holiday styling tips?
