I am sure you have heard it time and time again that every woman should have a little black dress (LBD) as a staple in their wardrobe.  The LBD is considered a “go to” for many different occasions including this yuletide season.  But, the LBD is not for everyone .  

If you are looking for fresh and trendy wear this holiday season think outside the box.  Think sheen, shine, sparkle, dazzle and visual interest.  Here are some current tips to celebrate the holiday season in style!

Metallics are the ultimate neutral, meaning you can pair them with any colour.   With a classic metallic silver or gold dress you will stand out like the tinsel on your tree.

Sequins are always festive.   You can wear a sequin dress or if that is too much for you, just we are one statement piece like the skirt below.  

Nothing says Christmas like this deep red satin dress. Satin or silk will make you shine a bit brighter!  

Velvet is on point this winter.  Try a velvet dress in a deep green or red colour for the greetings of the season.

Want a more casual but yet, sweet, edgy and effortless look?  This leather skirt coupled with this red sweater with subtly placed sequin appliqués does the trick.  Might I add, for a cold winter night to add semi-opaque hosiery and a black, red or metallic silver bootie.

If you are married to your LBD, then may I suggest this title lace number number with a mix of softness and edginess, or this winter floral, off the shoulder  dress.  

Don’t be afraid to stand out during the Holiday Season!  Remember to add accessories for more visual interest but not too much.  Less is more, especially when you want your outfit to be the centerpiece.

Step outside of your comfort zone with your look.  You may be surprised at how good you feel when you do so and how it helps you to celebrate the festive season more fully!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Wishing you many blessings in 2018!
