Kristina Bazan: How to Dress Festive in the Holidays

Holidays is a great reason to dress up, look festive, and have fun with your style. If you wish to look more festive than your typically casual looks and like to add some spice to your dressy formal looks, let’s be inspired by Kayture blogger, Kristina Bazan on her glamorous but festive outfits perfect for the holidays.

Though the formal attire has been cast aside for more casual and comfy holiday outfits, you may want to go for festive accents that will make you look appropriately pulled together but not too dressed up. Instead of just opting for typical accessories, opt for ones with holiday-inspired essence whenever you wear them with any of your outfit. Like Kristina, you may go for gold accents like wearing a gold bib necklace, gold bracelets, and even a gold clutch. To make things edgier, opt for a pair of leather patent boots to give you extra shine and studded back for a tougher look. You may even think of metallic flats, smoking slippers, or dressy pumps in order to look festive.

If you don’t have any idea for mixing your separates to create a festive outfit, start with your bottoms like jacquard trousers, flocked jeans, or even tuxedo pants that will look polished and sleek then think of flowing tops, asymmetrical tunics, pullovers, or soft blouses that will look great with them. Bottoms that taper at the hem tend to be best when paired with flowing tops or tunics. Like Kristina, you may simply go for a band jacket and sleek pants combination. Or, feel free to substitute the pants or fancy jeans for a skirt and knee-high boots like the blogger did. Dresses with sheer styles, unconventional cuts, and asymmetric hemlines can be great too.

Red is the typical color for holidays that look festive and engaging. However, when creating a festive outfit, think of combining colors like green, navy, orange, red, teal, eggplant, yellow, burgundy, as well as metallics. If you think the orange dress looks too wild for you, simply drape a printed coat to keep it look tamed but stylish like Kristina did. You may even go for festive prints and graphics like feathers, florals, tribal, and even quirky ones.

To add some dimension to your looks, go for leather, velvet, suede, fur, silk, and even patent leather that’s holiday appropriate. Like Kristina, you may go for a leather jacket with notable animal skin texture and pair it with brightly colored pants, or go for a neutral shade of leather in matching set. Suede pieces with fringe details like a suede jacket paired with flared suede pants look festive and bohemian. Feel free to choose the fabric of your choice to create a festive outfit.

To bring your festive holiday looks to next level, go for ensembles with festive details like sequins, beads, feathers, ruffles, and even metallic trims. Like Kristina, you may dress up your plain white jumpsuit with a festive and fluffy outerwear, or simply wear sequin ensembles head-to-toe. This way, you can channel your festive vibe in the holidays and create a fashion style that turn heads everywhere you go.
