Decorations, office parties, family reunions, and of course, presents: the holidays are an intense, colourful time of the year. When it comes to fashion, there are tonnes of occasions to dress up in your absolute finest. This year, I suggest going glam without buying a new outfit for every event: rather, there are certain accessories you can turn to in order to enhance your look! Here are five key accessories for a perfect holiday look, and a lower credit card statement, too.
The fur vest
The ideal ally to add some punch to your favourite little black dress. Cinch it with a narrow belt or simply wear it open. For a bolder look, pair it with gaucho pants. Of course, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to wear it after the holidays, whether with a flowy blouse and jeans, or your fave leather leggings.
The statement necklace
Give any solid colour dress a “wow” effect, no matter its style: flared, straight, lace, or even leather. It’s the best way to give a second life to that little number you’d bought for the office party a couple years ago: what’s the use of purchasing classic items if you never wear them again? This type of necklace can also be used to dress up a more masculine look, or add a nice touch to an all-black outfit.
The bejewelled shoe
This year, shoes decorated with stones, couture details, golden embellishments, metallic leather, and sequins are in for the holidays. They’ll work perfectly with your more flashy outfits and will add a touch of shine to your more understated looks.
The silk scarf
Tied around the neck, it adds a splash of sophistication to an already dressy look. Or, use it to add a chicer touch to a more casual look; you’ll have plenty of occasions to wear it after the holidays. One of the hottest accessories right now!
The bright-coloured lipstick
Sensual, sexy, chic, sleek: livening up your pout with a red, pink, or coral hue will add the crucial finishing touch to your holiday look.
