Holiday festivities are approaching, so get ready to up your style game. Do you want to add a little pizzazz to a cocktail dress or liven up staple pieces in your closet? Here are some effortless and creative ways to ensure your outfit won’t go unnoticed.
Metals, Stones, and Pearls
Jewelry trends are coming in strong this season. Accessorize a casual outfit, skinny jeans, ankle boots, and a loose sweater, with several layers of pearls. The pearls add a romantic touch to a simple modern outfit. The next time you lose an earring and hope to find its match, stop the search and embrace the single earring trend. Deep part the hair to one side and rock the earring and a little black dress. Different colored stones add boldness to an outfit, try a raw quartz stone pendant on a gold chain. A teal blue geode ring also makes a dazzling statement, wear it on the middle or index finger.
Show off Your Nails
Make your manicures last longer this holiday season by using a gel polish kit. Contrast nail color and attire. Try a black polish with a fuchsia sweater and trousers for work. A tan or beige gel will contrast well with black or charcoal gray. Some companies, like Gel-Nails, know that olive green and crimson nails are classic Fall colors that take you from sunrise to sundown. For some shimmer, look for a gel color with gold specks or draw a design in gold over black or dark green polish, perfect for New Year’s Eve.
Play up Footwear
For those days you can’t decide what to wear, don’t fret. Throw on your go-to jeans with a pair of patterned booties or colorful heels. Wedge booties are hot this season, they are comfortable and stylish, with the right amount of height. Bright velvet pumps will look ever so chic with leather pants or a party dress. For a more casual look, rev up your day style with a pair of velvet sneakers and jogger pants.
Accessorize with Tights
Statement tights complete an outfit. Try burgundy ribbed textured tights under leather shorts or black herringbone tights with an olive dress and boots. Depending on your preference, choose a thick opaque fabric and pair it with a flirty skirt and flats or sheer stockings with a fitted dress and stilettos.
There are no more excuses for “blah” outfit days, experiment with these accessories and be prepared to pop and sizzle.
