Bedazzled looks, embellishments, and sparkles from head to toe. Reds, deep greens, metallic silver/gold, and of course the always fashionable black are usually the go-to options for the hottest holiday parties this time of year. Every major fashion based retailer has literally been preparing for this 6-8 months ahead of the holiday season with catalogs, photo shoots, and magazine spreads to help party-goers dress for the holidays. Popular silhouettes are updated with beads, feathers, fringe, glitter, and any add-ons to make your outfit sparkle. The hardest task you’ll have this season is choosing one or two pieces out of the thousands that are available from retailers such as Bebe, Express, ASOS, BCBG, H&M, and my favorite at the moment, Topshop.
Not sure what to wear? My friends and I are here to help! We had a gathering to celebrate Nordine’s birthday and since it is December we all showed up donning stunning holiday appropriate pieces. The birthday girl looked fabulous in a floor-length rustic cream dress with a sheer insert at the bottom with lots of detailed embellishments – everyone else showed up in dark colors with a little sparkle or dark green suitable for this time of year.
Whether you’re inspired by one or more of our outfits – just ensure you dress to kill this holiday season and come out of 2016 with a bang or at least with a sparkle!
