The holidays are a time for family, giving, and joy. They are also a time for fun and quirky fashions. If you are wondering what to wear this holiday season, read below. When it comes to fashion, the holidays truly can be the most wonderful time of the year.
Have An Ugly Sweater Ready
“Ugly sweater parties” have become something of a holiday tradition in recent years. They make for festive, quirky holiday fun. You know the kind we are talking about: the tacky red and green sweaters with reindeer and elves on them that your parents couldn’t pay you to wear when you were young? Now they are all the rage, albeit in a tongue-in-cheek way. This is a fashion trend that is fun to embrace. Seriously, the tackier, the better. Dangling bells and fuzzy red Rudolph noses, yes please! The best part is that these sweaters can still be found for dirt cheap at thrift stores. And trust us, going ugly sweater shopping makes for a hilarious holiday activity.
New Year, New You
The New Year is the time when we all make (and break) resolutions. It is also the perfect time to try out a completely different look. Why not ring in the New Year with a full makeover? We are talking new outfit, mani/pedi, new hairstyle, even a new luxury hair topper
. The changing of the calendar is the perfect excuse to rock that new look you have always wanted to try out.
Dressing For Your Family
On Christmas, we see a lot of family members that we only see once every few months, or even once a year (and we all have those relatives who are quick to remind us why
we only see them once a year!). Like it or not, our relatives do not all have the same fashion standards that we do. This is why dressing up for a family holiday party is a source of stress for many women. We recommend erring on the side of caution. Yes, that sleek black dress might turn heads while you are out on the town, but the last thing you want is “that look” from grandma. Plus, you can always save it for the New Year’s Eve party.
Dressing For The Office Holiday Party
As with the family holiday party, the office holiday party requires discretion. Yes, you want to look stylish, but you also want to look professional. Choose a stylish but professional choice for office Christmas party wear.
Expanding Your Wardrobe
Christmas is the perfect time to get those outfits and accessories that you have always wanted. If you have wanted new outfits, booths, or jewelry, add them to the list. If your family members are notoriously bad at buying clothes for you, ask for gift cards to your favorite stores. This gives you the chance to try on and pick out the outfits yourself. Otherwise, make sure you hang on to the receipts.
