Fashion Forward For the Holiday Season Ahead

Parties are common for the holiday season. They are a great way for people to get together with friends, family members and coworkers to socialize and have a good time. Everybody wants to look good at her Christmas parties, Hanukah parties and New Year’s parties. Keeping yourself in the latest fashion trends can be quite expensive, though. However, with a bit of innovation and creative thinking, there are plenty of ways to ensure that you look good for the holiday season without the hefty price tag. There are three main articles of clothing that you should definitely have in your closet: a black dress, a blazer and a white blouse.
Sashay Around Dress
Simple Black Dress
A Little Black Dress
As cliché as this may sound, having a “go to black dress” that you are comfortable in no matter what, is the key to your holiday party fashion. Of course you aren’t going to wear exactly the same thing to every event, but a black dress can be accessorized so easily that no one will even know it’s the same dress. Add stockings, a sweater, a scarf or a belt to change the look of the dress. Wear it with different shoes and jewelry and no one will even notice you already wore it!

The next essential item this season is a blazer. Blazers may scream “business” to you, but they are the latest fashion trend and can also be used for just about any occasion. You can throw it on with a pair of skinny jeans, white tank and pumps for classy relaxed look, or wear a colorful red dress with the blazer underneath for a fun, trendy holiday look. There are many ways to wear a blazer and they can be as inexpensive or expensive as you would like.

Just like the other two items, a white blouse is easily paired with just about anything to create whatever look you are going for. Wear a colorful pair of jeans- green or red for the holidays- with your white blouse for a fun night out with your girl friends. Pair it with black dress pants for a business look, or a pair of dark jeans for a more casual dinner party with family and friends.

Bangles, bangles, bangles!!!!

The most important thing to remember is to accessorize. There is no need to go out and buy brand new expensive jewelry or scarfs, simply use what you already have or shop at thrift stores for inexpensive items. Wearing mixed bangles on the wrist is a hot holiday trend and is a simple way to jazz up any look. Big bling earrings are sure to make your outfit a hit, and a large ring will definitely turn heads. Use accessories to your advantage and create a new outfit with the same pieces of clothing.
