The holiday season is here, Thanksgiving, then Christmas and the grand finale with the New Years Eve. What this festive season brings is a lot of joy, presents and most of all partying. So are you prepared for the festivities that lay ahead? If you had, you most likely wouldn’t be reading this. No matter how well you prepare for the winters, something always is missing, isn’t it? It’s like the chilly winter evenings surprise you year after year, and dressing up for a party or get together without looking like a walking blanket becomes quite a task. Well, worry not. This guide will help you party in style for all the festivities this season.
Prepare for Christmas Dinner in Style
Every family has different traditions for Christmas dinner. Where some might opt for family-oriented dinners, others use this as an excuse to go all out and make it an excuse to socialize. What stays common is the glamour and little dust of sparkle when it comes to decorating the Christmas tree and when dressing oneself. So how do you add that little bit of sparkle without compromising on comfort or style? Here is one example, especially if you are planning a Downton Abbey themed Christmas. From the hues to silhouette to the warm yet striking prints, a mid-length dress would give you that 1920s look without having to compromise on current trends.
Dressing Up for Office Parties
Dressing up for office parties can be quite tricky. You have to strike the right balance between coming off as boring or looking too overly dressed. But unless you aren’t going to a sporty event with your colleagues, make sure you do dress up. The first thing you need to keep in mind is whether it is a day time or a night time event. For daytime you can opt for woollen skirts with silk blouses paired with a pretty cardigan or blazer. For evenings go all out with a stylish cocktail dress like this one.
Dressing Up for Day Events
Celebrations are not only limited to night times during the festive season. Whether it’s a family lunch or an official event, you will very likely need a wardrobe suitable for festivities during the daytime. And you want something that screams your holiday enthusiasm. This particular ensemble pretty much nails the balance between keeping it minimal and adding the much needed glamour to any day event during the winters. A subtle sweater pairs perfectly with a glamorously blod chic pleated skirt.
Party Like Everyone’s Watching This New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve is all about the sparkles. From the fire crackers to sizzling drinks, it’s sparkles everywhere. Heavily sequined dresses and glittery blouses become pretty much a style statement for the night. So how do you outshine all that sparkle? You simply go for something that lets you shine through the intricate designs and bold cuts. Sheer has made a major come back this season, so make good use of that. Go simple, go bold, and opt for a daring black bodysuit like this one. Because no one will expect you to show up in a suit on a New Year’s night.
