Christmas Fashion: Adding Some Seasonal Sparkle
With the temperature having dropped a few more degrees this week, Christmas is in the air. The season of Christmas parties, family gatherings and christmas concerts and events are just around the corner. If you want to add a bit of ‘wow’ to your Christmas fashion read about our seasonal sparkle ideas.
Dare to be bold
If you’re feeling fun and festive this season, why not go a little bolder with your winter wardrobe? Christmas is a great time for shades of red to complement a red lip and warm tones. Gold is also a beautiful traditional Christmas fashion colour. These colours always work well, particularly at more formal events such as dinner dances, or if you’re spending Christmas on a luxury cruise ship or at a top restaurant.
However, if you want to steer away from the traditional, blues are very on-trend this seaon. You could consider a blue, aquamarine or cerulean outfit this year, especially for events that call for ‘smart casual.’ You’ll stand out for all the right reasons on your festive lunches, and Christmas shopping trips.
Trim with sparkle
There are many ways and occasions to embrace sparkles this season! Perfect for candlelit Christmas soirees, or family suppers by the fire.
However, If you’d like to opt for a classic take on sparkles, why not choose an outfit with a sparkly trim? This option is a beautiful, subtle way to accentuate your Christmas wardrobe. This outfit from Personal Choice is a great example; the subtle sparkles and shimmer on the trim adds a tasteful, elegant touch to a black outfit.
Keep it classy
Whilst Christmas is a great time to choose some bolder pieces for your wardrobe, it is worth striking the balance with your seasonal sparkle. This will help you to make sure your overall look stays classic and sophisticated.
My advice is to choose one aspect of your outfit to sparkle and make this a feature. If you’re opting for a bold sparkly dress, accentuate this by pairing it with a monochrome jacket and accessories. And if you’ve chosen a sparkly jacket, keep the outfit underneath sparkle-free. Alternatively, use sparkly accessories to turn an otherwise plain outfit to a real showstopper!
Grab some accessories
Accessories can be a great way to introduce some sparkle into your Christmas fashion. Great at directing the eye choose necklaces and earrings with sparkly trim or even a sparkly belt at the waist can be a beautiful option for your winter wardrobe.
Alternatively, pair an outfit with some shoes that have a bit of sparkle or shimmer in them! Sparkly shoes will accentuate any outfit. They’re perfect for occasions where you might need to dress up a slightly more casual outfit.
One of my favourite ways to add some sparkle and turn some heads is with a touch of metallic shimmer.
