Well babes, November is here, which means it’s officially all-things-holiday. This is the one season of the year where sequins, patent leather pumps, opaque tights & champagne make the best of friends & you don’t have to apologize to anyone for it.
Thus, today I’ve chosen my top five male & female looks to rock this 2015 Holiday. Making a statement during these few months is the name of the game. With so many fun prints & colors && textures to work with the options are pretty endless. Plus, you don’t want to be the one in the corner with Barbara from Accounting eating your feelings at this year’s holiday party, right? So it’s time to rework your wardrobe & accessories && make this your best outfit season ever!
Menswear: the looks I’ve chosen work for nearly any body-type & allow my male clients to feel enough creativity to represent their own personal style, but not take away from the professional atmosphere of work//family//co-worker-realted parties. Each piece varies from causal wear to black tie, all dependent upon the invite.
For super casual environments, try a black on black ensemble with a subtle pop of metal or color.
Not ready for a suit? Work a nice slack, a simple button-up & a great pair of loafers.
Event too casual for full suit & tie? Ditch the tie & work in a great shoe & pocket square instead.Time to suit it up, but want to stand out? Try a fun color or print on for size. Black Tie? Opt for true black hues, a vest, & a unique pocket square & tie [at max].
Womenswear: the looks I’ve selected for my ladies today are versatile, flirty & on-trend with the season, yet they allow serious room for creativity & personality. Women get to cheat a bit with party-wear because our looks often fit somewhere neatly between casual & black tie dependent upon the woman’s tastes & preferences. However, each piece chosen has either a unique shape, texture or print & will help kick your holiday season up a solid ten notches & still be invite-appropriate.
Not down with a dress? Try a great blouse & unique skirt. Top with a killer heel & you’ll be show stopping.
Keep it classic & professional with a beautiful burgundy lace dress, but spice it up with some sequins.
Want to keep it comfortable? Rock some amazing sequin pants. Tip: keep everything else simple.Nothing says Carrie Bradshaw like a tulle skirt. Perfect for holiday parties, but always add tights. Need some color in your life? An emerald cocktail dress is my go-to this holiday season. #sogood
So whether you have corporate events planned, your in-laws in town, or you just want a night out with friends & a hot-toddy, this season is the time to try new pieces & looks. Put on those leather chestnut loafers, guys. Purchase those five inch Louboutins, ladies. && get ready to own the shit out of Winter. You’ve worked hard the last ten months…
Happy Partying, party animals.
