Every great holiday season begins with a great playlist, and Z100’s 2015 Jingle Ball on Dec. 11 happened to do just that, delivering some of the hottest music from the biggest stars all in one place. New York City’s Madison Square Garden played host to the likes of Charlie Puth, Demi Lovato and even Nick Jonas as they ushered in the holiday season in the city with their most successful songs of the year. An added benefit of the star-studded event: the red carpet fashion prior to the show.
Setting the red carpet ablaze in a white-hot look was “Same Old Love” singer Selena Gomez, who attended the Jingle Ball concert in a white strapless bodycon dress. She paired her look with black pumps while styling her hair in long, loose waves.
Following suit in a red ensemble was Modern Family‘s Ariel Winter. Winter took to Jingle Ball in a cutout halter jumpsuit, which she paired with a metallic clutch and heels.
Adding a pop of color to the Jingle Ball red carpet was Kelsea Ballerini, who opted for a black tank and a Jay Godfrey turquoise skirt. The “Love Me Like You Mean It” singer polished off her ensemble with colorful Alejandra G. lace-up pumps, says Yahoo.
Although these ladies are dressed for the biggest musical event of the holiday season, there are certain things we can learn from their look to apply to the way we dress every day:
- Simple is stunning – Gomez’s white bodycon dress is certainly sexy, but it’s also quite simple. The dress has a very streamlined silhouette and has no embellishment, but it still manages to capture our attention. This is because it fits like a glove and accentuates her curves. When you shop for dresses, blouses, pants or skirts, be sure that each piece fits these three main points on your body: your bust, your natural waist and your hips. This means making sure that there is no pulling at the bust and hips, while also making sure that the waist fits snugly around your natural waist.
- Jump into jumpsuits – Winter’s ensemble reminds us that jumpsuits are a great option for holiday parties. This jumpsuit’s festive cranberry color makes it perfect for the holidays, and when paired with gold accessories (as Winter did), it makes it all the more ready for any party that may come your way. If you want to try a jumpsuit this season, be sure to pay attention to the details of the garment to determine where and how it can be worn. For example, a jumpsuit with cutouts like Winter’s may not be appropriate for a family gathering, but it could be fun for a night with friends.
- Add a splash of color – Ballerini may have opted for a bright color that’s not normally associated with the holidays, but the pop of color is a nice way to break the sea of red and green. If you want to try a pop of color this holiday season but don’t want to seem out of place, try it in smaller amounts; a turquoise necklace or bright pink pumps paired with an all-black ensemble is a chic, but subtle way to add some color into your holiday ensembles.
