Get “Decked Out” this Holiday Season

It’s Time to Glam it Up

The Holiday season is officially upon us. Decking the halls, trimming the tree, etc., and with that come the endless list of invitations to various gatherings, get togethers and parties that range from black tie formal to business casual, to loose and comfortable. More often than not, however, this is the time of year where people really want a reason to glam it up, dress to the nines, get gussied up and bling it out, so here are a few fashion tips if your invite list happens to include a few Glam Christmas parties. Tis the season, after all!

It’s all about the Outfit

One of the first things you have to find if you’ve been invited to the “holiday bash of the year” is the perfect outfit. Whether you want to get all decked out in a classic LBD, complete with strappy stilettos, upswept hair, glittery diamond stud earrings all wrapped around lightly perfumed skin, or decide to downplay it with a demure pair of winter white slacks with a cream, gold flecked cashmere sweater with a pop of color in a piece of statement jewelry, the clothes will tell your story. The stores are literally brimming over with holiday outfits, so find something that is not just appropriate for the occasion, but is also a true reflection of your personality.

Hair and Makeup Matter

Next comes hair and makeup. This is the time of year where you should go all out, but not the time to experiment with a new cut, style or color. For easy glam, you can have hairpieces or extensions added, or try a pop of color. Nothing makes a more polished statement than a classic chignon or French twist when it comes to attending a glam Christmas party. If you want some pizazz, add some glitter (but go easy.)

As far as makeup, you can do a bold red lip and nails, or muted pastels or neutrals and jazz it up with a smoky, dramatic eye, a splash of your signature perfume will sure make a statement too. The sky’s the limit when it comes to hair, nails and makeup so look through fashion magazines for looks you like and ask your stylist to see if they can create the same look on you, or ask them for suggestions. (Remember, they live for this kind of thing, and the holidays are their season to sparkle and shine as well. If you look good, they look good.)
A Little Bling Goes a Long Way

Jewelry is another area where you can really make a statement and get glafashion accessoriesmmed up. Nothing amps up an outfit like some bling and sparkle. Try rhinestone chandelier earrings or necklace to add some pizzazz to your outfit. You can ramp things up even more with some sparkly bangles after all this is the season where bling reigns.

Tis the season for sparkle and style, so make sure you do it right this holiday season with outfits and fashion accessories that will help you stand out from the crowd!
