Five Dressing Tips for a Holiday Get-Together
If you are set on wearing red and green during the holidays, try these tips to make sure you don’t get mistaken for one of Santa’s little helpers:
* Use pops of red, instead of an all over look, like in a shoe or bag.
* Choose deep jewel toned greens in rich fabrics.
* Allude to the idea. Try not to wear either or both in an overwhelming and obvious
Women: I don’t suggest wearing sequins unless you know that the party really is a formal one or your sequins are scattered in very small amounts. Sequin gowns at non-formal events scream either (a) HELP! I’M STUCK IN 1992! or (b) I have nowhere else to wear this, and really, really, really wanted to. Rather, wear a tasteful cocktail dress. Something nice, maybe with minimal beading or a sequined neckline, but for the love of all things holy, please don’t wear head-to-toe glitter.
First, you must acknowledge your audience. If you are attending a work party, you must remember to always look sophisticated and proper. That doesn’t mean that you have to come in the same old suit. Switch it up a little by pairing the classic black dress pants with a fun colorful sequin top.
Or maybe you are meeting your potential in laws for the first time. You don’t want to look like you are trying too hard. Our suggestion, a classic sweater paired with jeans. To add a little kick to your step add some stylish boots, and accessories.
Finally always remember to be comfortable. If you are in an outfit, but are in agony, know that the outfit is as well. If you are comfortable, it shows. Being comfortable in your own skin is the biggest success of them all!!
