Gear Up for a Santastic Christmas!

Now it’s only a few hours to Christmas. So you cannot fret over your party plans and what to wear at the last minute. In fact, simply de-stress and get into the party mood.

Dresses and skirts are my favourite as they add a feminine grace that can never go wrong. Also, since Christmas has a global appeal, trends from the international runways should inspire you. You can work the looks from both for the brunch as well as an evening party.face

 Silhouettes: So pick the ones that fit you best. The silhouettes need to compliment your body type and not make you feel conscious and uncomfortable. Make sure to wear proper inners underneath, in order to ensure a seamlessly elegant finish for the overall look. skirt

Colours: Wearing the colours of the season like red, green and white can be fun but try mixing and matching other hues as well. In fact, opting for orange, grey or black can also make you stand out from the crowd.

Prints: LBD (little black dress) are so passé by now. So you can pull off some quirky prints with élan. Even if you do not want to sport a typical star, bell or other Christmas motifs, try a bow or something that’s more fun.

Make-up: Let the eyes look dolled up with mascara and a hint of liner. Keep the lips colourful with a dash of coral or pink.

 Hair: A smart pony tail with a simple bouffant can upgrade the classy quotient of the over all look.

 earingAccessories: What can be really cool and innovative is matching the print of your outfit with your earring, neck piece, hair clip and the likes.

You can also try the same with footwear or add a hint of colour used in the make-up to reflect in your footwear too. dress

For me it was fun to play up my purple eye shadow and lips by finishing the look with a pair of purple pumps since the dress was black.

Also, for my orange skirt I chose to keep it rather simple with a pair of nude peep toes. Stiletto heels work the best for any day or evening look, for the party season.

Just be different, be yourself!
