Despite needing to wrap up warm to avert the winter chill, we all want to look our best over the Christmas period. Whether you’re heading to a party, celebrating with friends, or taking snaps for the family photo album, it’s important that you feel comfortable during the holidays without compromising your fashion sense.
Christmas requires a great deal of planning, so avoid some of the stress by organizing your outfits for special events in advance. That way, you won’t be left trying to cobble something together at the last minute. Follow these five steps to a stylish Christmas wardrobe, and you can celebrate the festivities in true seasonal style.
Rock a Pair of Boots
If the weather where you live is already on the turn, a pair of winter boots is an investment you won’t regret. Luckily, chunky boots are in fashion at the moment, so you can get away with wearing them with jeans, leggings, or even dresses and tights. Who said we had to choose between fashion and function? A good pair of boots will deliver both.
Go Glam on Gloves
Frostbitten fingers are never a good look, so beat the chill by adding a pair of gloves to your winter wardrobe. The aim is to find a pair of gloves that compliment any outfit, whether casual or dressy, while still keeping you warm. This year, elegant velvet gloves are back in fashion, so ditch the fluffy mittens and give your winter essentials an upgrade. Opt for black, deep red or navy to complement a range of outfits.
Add Sparkly Jewelry
Gold, sparkly jewelry is the perfect addition to any festive outfit, but you’ll need to be selective to find effortlessly chic pieces. Roma Designer Jewelry sells beautiful Baltic amber necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets that will bring a touch of class to your party frock and even glam up your old Christmas sweater.
Vary Your Headwear
As well as keeping your head warm, a winter hat will protect your hair from freezing temperatures and spruce up your outdoor gear. Don’t be put off by the notion that you’re “not a hat person.” With so many styles, colors and shapes to choose from, there is sure to be a hat that complements your look while keeping you cozy. Bobble hats never go out of style, but opt for neutral colors if you want to avoid outfit clashing. Beanie hats are also fashionable this year, so try a few different styles to vary your look.
Oversized Is Better
Oversized clothing has never been more on-trend, plus it’s perfect to lounge around in after gorging on Christmas dinner. Baggy jumpers look great with velvet leggings or skinny jeans, while oversized scarves will keep you warm and add layers to your outfit. To avoid looking drowned by your clothing, pair oversized garments with slimmer fitting clothes. A giant pair of overalls will look great with a tight-fitting t-shirt or cropped cardigan, for example, while tunics and tights go hand in hand.
Mix Up Your Make-Up
Whatever you’re wearing, a lick of red lipstick or some bronze eyeshadow can jazz up any outfit. So if you’re heading straight to the office to your Christmas party, keep some beauty essentials in your handbag and transform your look in minutes. Red nail varnish is also a go-to beauty staple for the holidays, and it will complement the Christmas colors in your photos!
