Christmas decorations in the stores are telling us that the holidays are just around the corner. It means it’s time to get your wardrobe ready for the celebrations that come along at this time of the year. Say yes to the dress to get into the season’s mood!
A shift dress might be the best option for casual festivities. Its simple cut serves all body types, and it’s great for those of us with a thick waist. The secret here is to pick one that gives you a good fit at the bust and shoulders and grazes your body as it falls. The fabric plays a big role, so avoid thin or too-flexible types. To make this style more attractive, choose a colourful print and pair it with bold accessories. A scarf will be enough to keep you warm if you’re spending this joyful season on the island.
A shift dress would also work here, but if you’re looking for something a bit more elegant, choose a sheer mid-dress. Red is the perfect pick for this time of year, and to up the fashion stakes, go for a burgundy number. Team it up with a camel trench coat and classic high heels for a traditional take and add some pizzazz with golden and carmine accessories. The embroidered wallet shows that this lady also knows how to have some fun. Keep in mind that one funky piece can boost any look.
If the occasion warrants, you can always go for a long gown and minimal complements. However, if you are looking for a daring and party-themed garment, this layered green ‘Christmas tree’ dress is just the job. It might not be flattering to all body types, but it will certainly get you into a seasonal mood. Black and silver add-ons and a bright red lipstick will add the final touch to an unforgettable outfit. You can also opt for gold accessories – anything metallic is a trendy choice.
