Style 101: Holiday style

So you’re heading out to a holiday party tonight with friends and family, and you’ve been rummaging through your closet all day trying to figure out what to wear. Look no further, because THL has you covered with holiday style suggestions that will make you shine brighter than an holiday lights display.

Velvet: If you’re looking for a luxurious, soft fabric to keep you feeling cozy and confident, velvet is the way to go. Velvet’s rich texture can immediately elevate even the most basic of outfits, adding just the right amount of flair to your holiday style. Try out this revived trend by opting for velvet heels, blazers or even dresses; better yet, give velvet a go in a deep burgundy, and your look will surely be in the spirit of the season.

Metallics: Gold and silver aren’t just big for the holiday season this year, metallics are a major trend in everything from clothing to accessories to makeup. All eyes will be on you as you make your entrance in a sparkly top, dress, skirt or jacket. If these pieces prove too bold for your style, start out including the trend in subtle ways, wearing metallic makeup (like eyeshadow), nail polish or jewelry to sneak in a little shine to your holiday style.

Be casual: While some holiday parties may require more dressy attire, nothing will ever top being comfortable and casual for the holidays (when appropriate, of course). Show off your affinity for the season by opting for an ugly Christmas sweater — or, keep it cozy chic  by wearing your favorite sweater and jeans. These looks can be enhanced with accessories — such as oversized scarves, jewelry and cool jackets — that will make your casual outfit look a little more put together.

No matter what you decide to wear this holiday season, just be sure to wear it with confidence.

Happy holidays!
