Holiday season is the perfect time to go all out and dress to impress. A pleated skirt, black dress or metallic jewellery — anything’s a good excuse to get out those clothes from your closet that don’t see the light of day as often as they should. Ladies, here are some inspired holiday season outfits to wear at the office, among friends or with family.
AT THE OFFICE
One thing’s clear at the office: it’s thumbs down to plunging necklines and short-short skirts. If you want a chic yet classy look, go for a satin midi skirt instead. How do you wear it? Simple enough — with a turtleneck or blouse. Where can you find it? In a whole range of colours at Simons.
If you’re a more conservative dresser, the ideal is to choose everyday clothes but add a touch of glamour. It may sound simple, but black cigarette pants (thanks, Dynamite) matched with shiny pumps and a structured jacket is uncomplicated, casual and right for the holidays! Just add fancy jewellery, colourful high heels and a striking lipstick.
The time is here to get out that off-the-shoulder dress, cropped blouse or short skirt. With friends, you can be a bit more daring with your holiday season look. Our fashion fave: wrap dresses. They’re sexy and they mold to your figure very elegantly. Thanks to our new Search. Find. ShopNOW web feature, we’ve found a primo dress at Le Château for that holiday season party with your friends.
An alternative if you’re not one to wear a dress is a skirt. With a necklace and puff sleeve sweater, you can move easily, with comfort and style. Black, red, metallic or silver — you’ll find the right skirt for you at Simons or H&M.
While the holiday season is your time to shine, there are still certain pitfalls you want to avoid when it comes to celebrating with the in-laws. As at work, spaghetti straps or see-through items that give a glimpse of your lingerie are a no-no. But if you want to jazz up your everyday look, there’s nothing stopping you from trying a jumpsuit. For a holiday look, go ahead and pick a red, glitter or metallic number. Simple and feminine, with the right note of elegance!
For a more conservative look, let us remind you that the little black dress we all know is still a holiday season essential. Whether it’s with mom and dad or the in-laws, the LBD, basic as it might be, is just right for the occasion. So how can you find the one you need? Easy — with Search. Find. ShopNOW.
Finally, to top off your holiday season outfit, try some silver or more colourful jewellery. It will add a touch of personality to your look.
Ready, set, party!
