Yes ladies and gents, it’s that time of year when the holidays have once again snuck up on us. It also means Christmas and New Years parties, office holiday parties, school performances at our kids’ schools and many other festive soirees. For many of us ladies, an LBD is our go-to item, but this holiday season is all about shimmer, shine and color and stepping out of your comfort zone just a bit.
Embrace fabrics such as velvets, satin and sequins in jewel-toned shades, but don’t be afraid of Winter whites and pops of bright pink, which are both on the scene right now. Accessorize any outfit with diamonds or crystal jewelry and accessories and voila you are all set! Below are a few easy and affordable holiday ensembles guaranteed to turn a few heads for your next holiday event.
1. Black sequined top and animal print satin pants:
Pants are totally appropriate for a holiday affair unless the invitation or dress code state otherwise. Pair a satin or sequined top with a pair of fitted or skinny satin pants and a cute pair of pumps or booties. Add a fun pair of crystal earrings and head out the door.
