Holiday Fashion Tips For Every Event On The Calendar
The holiday season is packed with social events. Casual office Christmas parties are followed up by formal holiday dinners with extended family. You might attend church services on Christmas Eve or drive around looking at Christmas lights. You might just want to stay inside, wrap up in a few warm blankets and watch your favorite holiday movie. The holiday season is busy, and the weather can be as unpredictable as your schedule. No matter where your holiday plans take place, it's important to be prepared so you can stay comfortable and be confident. Look and feel great for every festive event on your Christmas calendar with these holiday fashion tips.
There's a big difference between creating that classic Christmas look and looking like a walking Christmas tree. Red and green might be complementary colors, but the traditional Christmas combination isn't always the best choice for dressing up during the holidays. But there's no rule against wearing red and green together during the holidays. The trick with combining the colors can be as simple as using the right shades. Festive bright reds and bold greens scream Christmas, but aren't necessarily the best choice for your outfit. If you're sticking with cheery holiday red, try pairing it with green shades like olive, pine or emerald. If you're a fan of the light, bright Christmas greens, try darker shades of red like scarlet or maroon. You could also mix it up with a classic plaid pattern or touch up your wardrobe with red and green fashion accessories.
It's easy to get carried away when you're accessorizing for a special event, but you don't have to compete against the Christmas tree for shiniest ensemble. When it comes to jewelry, less is usually more. Focus on finding that perfect piece of jewelry that reflects your own personal style or symbolizes the holiday season. You can also use the social occasion to wear the special bracelet or necklace you received from a previous Christmas. This is a nice, simple touch to show your significant other, family member or friend that you love the jewelry they gave you, especially if it has a symbol or style that fits well with the holiday theme.
You never know what the weather is going to be like during the winter. Oddly enough, you never even know what the temperature is going to be like indoors. Sometimes people overcompensate for the chilly weather outside by warming things up a bit too much inside, making you feel like you made a big mistake wearing your favorite sweater or cozy cardigan. Sometimes it's a bit colder than you'd prefer, making you wish you'd have worn that same cardigan. If you're venturing into unfamiliar territory or going to be braving the cold weather in some capacity to get to your destination, it's always a good idea to have something in your wardrobe that gives you versatility to survive the up-and-down temperature changes. The right wrap or infinity scarf might save your night at a holiday Christmas party, or keep you comfy while driving around looking at holiday lights and outdoor Christmas decorations.
Some of the best memories we have of the holiday season don't have anything to do with attending the social event of the year. Mostly, we think fondly of staying inside with family, dressing as casually as possible in fleece pajama sets or sleepwear and curling up on the couch. However, we're on the go more than ever during the holiday season, and all that running around makes it impossible to completely avoid the chilly weather and freezing temperatures as the winter season starts to overtake fall. A durable jacket or fleece cape is always great to have hanging on your coat hook racks and ready to go when you're running out the door.
Getting ready for holiday season isn't just about getting presents for under the tree. Prepare for any event and fill out your winter wardrobe with apparel and gifts from LTD Commodities.
