Holiday Style Guide

If you haven't noticed by now, I'm slightly obsessed with the holiday season. With festive parties and activities to partake in, it's the perfect excuse to add a little more (or a lot more) glitz and glamour to your wardrobe. Check out my holiday style guide with my handpicked pieces and find out where you can purchase the items to add to your wardrobe. You know you want to be named best dressed! 

Black and Red and Leopard All Over

This look is classic and absolutely glamorous. The off the shoulder LBD (Little Black Dress) is elegant and timeless. The leopard heels and the whimsical clutch are feminine and fun touches to enhance the look. I've paired these items with some classic silver jewelry to keep with the element of glamour and luxury. For makeup, go for a bold red lip and a classic cat eye. This look is timeless and is perfect for attending holiday parties. 

The Blushing Bombshell

While this look sticks with neutrals across the board, it sure makes a statement. The sparkling bandage dress will have you looking like a tall glass of champagne. I paired the dress with gold accessories to complete the shimmery look. The Valentino studded shoes are right on trend, and go perfectly with the dress and accessories. For makeup, keep the eyes neutral and swipe some nude lipstick on (MAC makes some fabulous nudes that every woman needs!). Tousle your hair and you're ready to go, bombshell! 

The Vixen

This look is anything but subtle, and is perfect for the woman who wants to make an entrance. With velvet being one of the season's most popular trends, this bordeaux dress is right on trend yet timeless with its silhouette and length. I paired the dress with some sassy black heels and a fur stole to add more glamour and drama to the overall look. The clear clutch is trendy and it's fanned clasp is fun, and almost looks vintage. For makeup, go for a bordeaux lip similar to the color of the dress, and add some false lashes to complete the look. While this holiday look is dramatic, it definitely makes a statement that only a true vixen can make!

Girl On Trend

This look is festive while including all of the season's hottest trends. Velvet, chokers, and thigh high boots - oh my!

A Lady in Pink

While this look is full of soft tones of pink, it certainly makes a statement. The belted fur coat from Balmain is a fun piece to add to your wardrobe and can be paired with many different outfits throughout the fall and winter.

Classic-ly Christmas

When I think of the holidays, I think of the color red, and that's what this look is all about! Red dress, red lips, and an adorable red apple clutch from Judith Leiber. With all of the pops of color being the focal point, I opted for simple jewelry with some diamond hoop earrings, and black heels with embellishment. This look is classic, and it's exactly what I think of when I think of holiday style!

Experiment with these looks by using items you already have in your wardrobe. Purchase a few new accessories or clothing items as seen above that you may need to add to the drama and glamour of dressing for the holiday season.
