To help you get started, here are some ideas of what you might want to stuff into your closet for the holidays.
The 5 Most Popular Fashion Trends for the 2013 Holiday Season
This list will give you an idea of what style to look for or which color to choose. You may find that you favor only one, or that you’d like to have all of them inside your closet. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you remember to have fun. Fashion is supposed to be fun; a stress reliever. Like the colorful and inspiring Christmas holidays. Keep this in mind as you go through the list.
1. Choose gold or metallic.
The glimmering look and effect of gold and metallic dresses are always perfect for the holidays. This year, you’ll have plenty to choose from as winter collections by some of the world’s best designers have incorporated some glitter and glimmer.
Find a good cocktail dress, a short straight dress (pretty much like a little black dress), or even a gold sequined dress. You won’t need to have a lot of accessories or jewelry as your dress will provide all the sparkle for you.
Sequined shorts paired with a simple halter or camisole will be perfect for ringing in the New Year.
Gold and metallic dresses will give you a look of sophistication; perfect for a “glamorous” celebration!
2. Go for red and / or green.
Reds and greens are nothing new to holiday fashion. But they can still give you the look you want. All that you need to do is explore your creativity.
Instead of going for the usual shades of red and green, go for the more unpopular ones. Emerald green, for example, will be perfect for the holidays. Accentuate your outfit with some silver or gold (hoop earrings or bracelet), and you’re good to do. Be sure not to mix the silver and the gold so you won’t look like a walking Christmas tree!
Go for red – printed red. You’ll need to choose the prints wisely, though. Go for small prints, not the big ones as they tend to take all the attention. If you prefer a more dashing look, though, go for bright red or fiery red. That will keep heads turning your way! Perfect way to feel good during the holidays!
3. Pick burgundy!
Do you want a splash of red and want to come out a little daring? Choose burgundy. It’s a color that resonate the holiday spirit of celebrating with great wines and good cheers. In addition to this, it’s perfect for the cold winter weather!
If you’re going to formal events, go for a simple burgundy dress or gown and metallic shoes. For more casual celebrations, pair off your burgundy dress with sturdy black boots and black stockings. You’ll not only feel and look beautiful, you’ll also be warm in the most fashionable way.
When choosing the kind of holiday fashion to go for, the most important thing to consider is how it will make you feel. The clothes that you wear should not only make you look good. You should also feel good and comfortable with it.
