Christmas is just around the corner and it is time for carols, plum cakes, secret Santa gifts, and of course, parties. Those Christmas party pictures are going to be printed in office circulars and updated on social media platforms by your friends and colleagues, so you want to be absolutely on point for this occasion. You do not want to be underdressed and not reflect the cheer. At the same time, you do not want to look so decorated to the point that people will mistake you to be the Christmas tree! It is the season where clothes and people look vibrant, rich and extra sparkly. Here are some of our favorite tips to make your Christmas attires delightful. Add Something Red Red is very commonly associated with the Christmas spirit, thanks to the dear beloved Santa, the mistletoe, and holly berries. You do not necessarily have to dip yourself in red from head to toe. However, adding something red would instantly cheer the look and reflect the spirit of the season. You can opt for a red blouse or a red kurta, choose a red skirt and match it with your crisp white shirts, or even just add a fun red earring with your neutral office wear clothes to add that pop of color. Add Something Shimmery You don’t get to overload on the bling on a daily basis, especially in office spaces. Christmas season is one of those rare occasions where you can happily add the glitter and gloss to your outfits. Try to balance it out by layering it with non-shimmery clothing items. For example, a shimmery top will work wonders to your regular office wear trousers if matched and fitted perfectly. Alternatively, you can opt for shimmery bottom wear like skirts to jazz up your look. Embrace Elegance withLace Tops Outfits fashioned out of lace are in every designer’s arsenal this season. It is almost as if the runways come straight from the Victorian Era. There is something about lace that highlights your finesse and elegance; it is the perfect fabric to embrace femininity. When you wear lace dresses or tops, the design elements that come with the lace become the center of attraction. Keep your accessories minimal and to the point. Let the lace do its talking. Try Smart Casuals Whether you are in the office or in a more relaxed, less-formal space, opt for smart casuals to add that cheerful festive spirit to your getup. Find your favorite pair of relaxed fit trousers and dress it up with a well-constructed silk, satin or linen blouse. Opting for deep colors in jewel tones will give you that sleek and sophisticated look. Experiment with Plaid and Checks Plaids and checks have been the favorite choices of fashionistas for a long time and they go perfectly well with the spirit of December as well. A midi length tartan red skirt paired with a simple black top would bring just the right amount of red to the picture. Plaids and checks are at the same time festive, cozy, and homely. If you want to hit a casual note with your Christmas outfit, go for the different kinds of red checks. Try Interesting Sleeves If you do not usually experiment with your sleeves, a holiday season is the best time to go bold. Give bell sleeves or puff sleeves a chance. Bell sleeves will look slightly over the top for some occasions, but Christmas is perhaps the perfect time to embrace the flowy fabric along your arms. The 80’s staple style of puffed sleeves has also made a major comeback this season. Puff sleeve tops can be attention-grabbing and just perfect for an occasion where you want to stand out. And the best part? You can dress down both sleeve choices by pairing it with simple denim jeans. Don’t Forgo Comfort Lastly, don’t ignore the comfort quotient! You are gearing up for an occasion filled with fun and frolic. You will probably be dancing and making merry. You wouldn’t want to wear something uncomfortable and worry about your dress throughout all those fun times. Make sure that whatever you choose to wear on this fun-filled occasion, you are absolutely comfortable wearing it because nothing is more stylish than a woman who can carry herself with ease. Merry Christmas,y’all!
