We’re halfway through September and every day, we go one day closer to the holiday festivities. Aside from looking forward to going home and joining all the merrymaking, I’m pretty sure you’re preparing for your holiday looks as well. After all, who wouldn’t want to look their best when reuniting with family and old pals, right? If you’re already starting to shop for your holiday wardrobe, check out these party trends to master for the holidays.
- The sexy LRD – forget about the Little Black Dress this year and get yourself a Little Red Dress or two for the holidays. If you have enough money to splurge, I would suggest going for one that’s really fancy and ornate for dressier parties and one that’s simple and straightforward that you can dress up or dress down and wear on several occasions. Save the LBDs for non-holiday parties.
- Pop in some plaid – the holidays are always merrier when you have something traditional around so why not add a pop of plaid somewhere in your look? It could be something as subtle and simple as a plaid scarf on top of your holiday ensemble or something bolder and louder like a full-on plain sweater or plaid dress. Don’t be afraid to mix and match plaid with other prints / patterns, too.
- Velvet royalty – since it’s the holidays, why don’t you treat yourself to something nice and lush like a velvet piece of clothing item? You don’t have to wear it from head to foot. Just one piece in the entire look is enough to get that luxe feel of royalty. It’s great for adding more texture to an outfit, too, to keep it looking interesting. Velvet and knit always makes a nice and cozy combo while velvet and fur is something you can mix and match if you want something more extravagant and indulgent.
- Merry metallics – metallic colors have always been one of the best ways to add more color, sparkle and shine to rather dark fall outfits. This year, metallic colors are one of fall’s biggest trends as well so if you’re looking to add some shine to your outfit, add a pop of metallic somewhere in there and you’re good to go. This is also a great alternative to wearing sequins and glitter.
- Shot of sequins – but then again, who doesn’t love sequins for the holidays, right? If you’re looking for something more glitzy-glammy, something more ritz and something more shiny than metallics, you can always up your holiday game by opting for sequined pieces. And yes, you can most definitely wear them in the daytime.
- Pretty plumage – everyone’s sure to sport their new luxury fur pieces during the holidays, be it fake or real, and if you’re someone who likes to stand out and be unique, ditch your good ol’ fur pieces for something more fun and fabulous: feathers. They add a lot of personality to your holiday looks and they’re perfect for adding texture to your holiday looks, too.
