As Christmas gets closer and closer, it’s only natural to start thinking about the typical events and gatherings that you host and attend. Even if you’re planning on cutting down this year, there will still likely be a handful of themed gatherings that you’ll have on your calendar. So, why not take this opportunity to update your wardrobe and make sure it is Christmas ready? This means that even if you get last minute invites, you’ll be prepared and have outfit options to choose from.
Here are some tips you can use to get your wardrobe ready for the festive season.
Take Stock of Your Current Go-To Party Wear
A great place to start is by looking at the existing pieces you already have. There is no reason to get rid of everything; often it comes down to adding small touches that update the look. Reminding yourself of what you have on-hand can also spark your creativity so that you know what you need to look for.
Embrace Pops of Colour and Bold Prints
One rut that people are often guilty of falling into is grabbing the typical black dress, or neutral coloured outfit. While these certainly have their place, there is nothing memorable or special about them. Christmas is meant to be a joyful and fun time of year, so why not reflect that in the clothing you wear? Rather than neutral colours, embrace pops of colour and bold prints that will liven up the rather dull and dreary weather that is happening outdoors.
For example, check out this Asian clothing from Shiffonz, which is notorious for its use of bold colours and intricate details. Many of the pieces have so much beading, stitching, and jewels on them that you don't even need accessories. These are the kinds of pieces that also make a statement and are in an entirely different category than the basic black dress.
Look for Statement Pieces of Jewellery
A really simple way to update your existing festive wardrobe is to pick up some statement pieces of jewellery. Jewellery can transform the look of an outfit and can make re-wearing the same few pieces possible. By changing the necklace, bracelets, or even earrings that you pair with your outfit, you will completely transform the look and feel.
Pick Up a Pair of Fabulous Holiday Shoes
Of course, no outfit is complete without a pair of fabulous shoes, and the festive season typically calls for something extra special. Again, try to step out of your comfort zone and veer away from the typical black heel. Instead, you can look for an eye-catching pair of red heels that scream holiday season, strappy heeled sandals, metallic heels (bronze, silver, or gold), or anything with jewels/sequins on them.
By following these tips, you’ll be able to usher in the festive season in style and look fabulous no matter how many events you attend or host this year. What will you wear?
