No matter your traditions, the holiday season is indeed a great food fest. And given the extensive time you’ll be spending at the dinner table or hopping from one house party to another, your festive ensemble should be all-around chic yet comfortable enough to allow for second or even third helpings!
The Little Black Dress
Here’s a piece that will never, ever go wrong! A staple in every woman’s wardrobe, the LBD is a classic style winner that scores brownie points for being a foolproof holiday getup.
Dress to the nines this Christmas in a flirty and flouncy frock that shows the right amount of skin. Leave accessories to a minimum and let your dress speak for itself. For a perfect finishing touch, swipe on a bold red lipstick.
Keep your look on point yet alluring with sharp and tailored silhouettes. Juxtapose the strong look with a statement piece, such as a glitter clutch.
Looking classy is key. Style your age right by pairing a sheath dress with a pair of eye-catching block heels.
Jeans, jeans, jeans
Not a fan of dresses? That’s fine. After all, a dreadful wardrobe malfunction is the last thing you want on your list at Christmas games and parties. If you are expected to partake in merrymaking, we say pants is the best way to go.
Being in your twenties gives you the perfect excuse to be decked in vibrant ensembles — you can either stay mild or go wild! Whether it’s provoking leopard prints or shiny sequins, don’t hold back and be the star of the show!
Dressing up in your thirties may seem daunting, but it’s really a lot more simple to style your age than you think. Flaunt your inner sophistication by pairing a chic top with high waist jeans and complete the outfit with a printed scarf.
The most important style factor for your age is dressing in the right fit. For a body-accentuating ensemble, your holiday separates should include boot-cut or straight leg jeans in dark shades. If you have a distaste for jeans, go for neat-fitted pants in deep burgundy shades.
Skirt the rules
Even if you are celebrating Christmas in the cool climate, you can still pack along your favourite skirt. After all like the old adage says, if you got it, flaunt it.
If the mini skirt makes up the bulk of your wardrobe, here’s how you can make them appropriate for family gatherings. Wear it with an oversized turtleneck sweater and cover your legs with opaque tights that imbue femininity and class.
For a woman of your calibre, choose a skirt with vertical lines to create an illusion of longer legs. Add a dash of fun to your outfit by mixing it with a printed top and you’ll definitely colour onlookers green with envy!
Who says you can’t wear metallic hues in your forties? Keep it subtle by wearing one shiny piece at a time. Our style tip? A pleated midi skirt adorned with neutral-toned accessories – you’re sure to receive an abundance of compliments.
