how to stand out this christmas
It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas and there’s only a couple of days left to plan your festive outfit for the party. Whether you’re celebrating with a romantic candlelit dinner or a cheerful family lunch, all occasions are good to put your sparkling game on and make an entrance with shiny fabrics and showstopping jewelry.
If Christmas is usually a holiday where traditions are at the forefront, it doesn’t mean that your look needs to follow the rules, and stepping away of the usual black or red dress might just make you stand out to become the cool girl of the party. Here are a few outfit ideas to be chic and shine through the night.
If a dress is the feminine staple par excellence, a suit is the outfit that makes a woman powerful and can turn her into a real femme fatale. Choose an iridescent version if you’d like to sparkle this Christmas or find the ensemble in your favorite color that you’ll be able to wear again in the office. Add a black velvet camisole underneath to feel more comfortable at the table and pair with a pair of sensual black pumps for added sophistication. A crystal-embellished shoulder bag will follow you from dinner to the dancefloor.
Enter the holidays with a white jumpsuit that will make you stand out from a crowd of black dresses at the table. It’s a versatile and fuss-free piece that can be worn throughout the day with a few sparkling accessories to bring the spirit of Christmas to your outfit. Choose a wide leg version to stay comfy during this eventful day and pair with a matching mini bag and high heel mules as well as star-shaped jewelry.
If wearing a dress isn’t your style, coming back to a basic staple such as denim is the best fashion choice to make this holiday. Dark wash jeans are a chic option to pair with a rock-inspired velvet blazer that you can wear buttoned and on naked skin. Add a pair of studded boots and pendant silver earrings for that extra rock’n’roll attitude, and match your bucket bag with the color of your lipstick.
Wearing a skirt is a great alternative to the classic black skirt and you can jazz your black look up by choosing a sequin version that will make you shine at a dinner party. For a chic yet sexy look, wear a sleeveless bodysuit that will tone down the sparkling staple. Add some golden pearl earrings that will stand out with a pretty hairdo and a satin clutch to carry your essentials. The finishing touch comes in low heel suede sandals that are made for dancing the night away.
A statement staple such as a sequin shirt has everything to make you spend Christmas in style and impress your guests. Wear it with a black ruffle mini skirt for a preppy look and a pair of studded ballerina so you can play the perfect host without stumbling on high heels. Don’t overdo it by adding too much sparkle, a white gold ring is the perfect finishing touch, and keep a tote bag close to you in case you need to rush out for last minute groceries.
