Style up the Slouchy Look

One of the fashion obstacles you might face during the holidays is that it’s winter and that means you want to be as comfortable and cosy as possible. Luckily, this can be worked into your style choices. The layered fashion trend is big this season, so pack on the clothing! Just remember to mix and match different items to keep the look fresh. For instance, pair tight items with looser ones to create contrast and complement your figure.

Play with Jewel Tones

Jewel tones are not just meant for your makeup and jewelry – they can be perfect in your clothes as they call to mind the rich colours of the season. Deep burgundy, forest green, royal blue, and canary yellow are examples of sumptuous shades that can really add style to your look. It’s a good idea, however, to stick to wearing one or two jewel tones simultaneously so that they can be the stars of the show without making you look too overdone. Jewel tones are effective in small bursts too, such as if you’re adding a gemstone-coloured bag or lipstick to your neutral outfit.

Declare Your Style with a Statement Piece

Pieces of jewelry that grab attention are known as statement pieces. A common one to wear is an eye-catching necklace, but get creative with the materials that it contains. For instance, a necklace containing gemstones or pearls can be a striking idea.

Choose the right statement necklace to complement your outfit. For instance, a trendy choker looks great with plunging necklines, while long rope necklaces can be draped over your clothing and work well with layered fashion.


Make Accessories Memorable

Accessories are a must to add glamorous finishing touches to your outfit, but this year the focus is on choosing ones that are unique and memorable. Examples include:

  • Ear cuffs. There are many glamorous, sparkly ones to wear this festive season and they’re a great way to indulge in your love of bling while doing something different with your look. Make sure you sweep your hair away from your face so they can be in full view.
  • Fedora hats.  Keep your head warm and in style with a sassy fedora. Choose one in a rich tone, such as cranberry, to be trendy without having to do anything dramatic to your outfit.
  • Long gloves. This is another great party accessory because it keeps your arms and hands warm while making you look stylish. Long gloves that reach your elbows can be in the same colour as your outfit, but a pastel or neutral shade will make them more versatile.

Be the Star 

Shimmer makeup is trendy this season and it’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Of course, you want to keep it subtle, so let one part of your face shine. An idea is to try the smoky eye with copper and gold tones to brighten up your face. This also makes it a great makeup look for moving from day to night events as the earthy tones keep it versatile.

Choose Party-Friendly Looks

You don’t want to have to touch up on your makeup during the holiday parties, so choose trends that will keep your look fresh all day and night.

  • Focus on healthy skin. This is a big trend and it’s all about having lovely, glowing skin that doesn’t need a lot of makeup. Exfoliate once a week to get rid of dead skin and unleash your natural vibrant complexion. Use moisturizer at least twice a day to keep skin hydrated and smooth during the unforgiving winter months. Smoother skin also reflects the light better.
  • Smudge-Proof Your Eyes. Wear waterproof eyeliner and mascara to keep smudges at bay. You should also invest in an eyelid primer to keep your eyeshadow intact.
  • Choose Softer Lip Shades. Although red is a popular choice during the holidays, bold colours are high-maintenance. Rather choose softer shades that can be just as glamorous, such as rose and coral. They’re also easier to touch up.

Looking gorgeous is about coordinating your clothes, makeup and accessories. Follow the above tips for some stylish ideas to make you glam up the room these holidays.
