As the most wonderful time of the year is approaching, Santa’s elves are busy in their workshop, children are chanting carols, Starbucks is serving holiday drinks, and the party invitations are starting to flood in. Everything is merry and bright except for the fact that you have no idea what to wear to all of these holiday events! But do not fret and take another sip of your eggnog latte, because Eliza Page has a few festive ideas to help you find your perfect holiday outfits!
First, we want you to know that there is no shame in embracing the colors of the season, red and green, in your holiday outfits. You can rarely pull of wearing this color combination any other times of the year so this is your time to rock it. By wearing these colors you are sure to radiate holiday cheer everywhere you go. Be aware that this look can easily look on the tacky side of the style spectrum even if it is the holiday season. Keep this outfit from being an eyesore by mixing in some neutral colors to your ensemble, or by focusing primarily on one color and accenting with the other.
Here are a few red and green items from Eliza Page to help you achieve this look:
Our next outfit option is to wear a black, red, silver, metallic or gold cocktail dress and spice it up with fun jewelry and accessories. This classic outfit choice is a safe bet that can save you holiday stress. A festive scarf, patterned tights, wintery hat or statement necklace are great options to sport with your simple dress. You can even choose to wear a dress that you already own as a way to save money for gifts and winter activities like carriage rides, ice skating or seeing the Nutcracker!
Here are a few stunning statement jewelry pieces that are perfect for paring with your simple cocktail dress:
Lastly, choose to be bold by wearing a tacky Christmas sweater! Making this statement is totally acceptable for a gathering like a white elephant gift exchange or a casual Christmas movie watching party with your closest friends or family. Have some fun with this by exploring your local thrift store or digging through your grandmother’s closet. If you are wanting to make this appear somewhat non-tacky (if that’s possible), stick to simple pants, boots and jewelry so that your look is not too overwhelming!
Here are some simple jewelry ideas for you to wear with you tacky Christmas sweater, put on your wish list, or give as a gift to someone special:
