Styling For The Festive Season

Styling For The Festive Season

Styling For The Festive Season 

It can be hard to commit to a No New Clothes December when it’s the busiest month full of occasions. Christmas parties, work events, family gatherings, dinners and let’s not even mention boxing day sales. We all want an extra dose of fabulousness during the holiday season, whether that’s in sequins, block colours or statement jewellery. It is possible to spend less and not compromise on your personal style. 

We’re not all versed on our personal style, or perhaps you want to change it up for the holidays. This styling journey begins on Pinterest. It’s a platform filled with style inspiration for every occasion, exactly what we need. Create a rough mood board of potential ideas for your December style. A few elements to consider are colour, texture and silhouette. Personally, I’d opt for red pieces for Christmas and something sparkly for NYE. The rest of the month I’d be living in prints and block colours with mixed textures. Velvet in particular reminds me of the festive season, so you’ll definitely see me in a few pieces throughout the month. I prefer loose silhouettes, think wrap dresses, wide pants, oversized jumpers, but it’s also about balance.

Now that you have a rough mood board of styles you prefer, here comes the fun part. Open your wardrobe, select three key pieces. For example, something red, sparkly and cosy. Referring back to your board, try and style the piece in the way you desire. The art of styling allows us to re-wear our favourite items in different yet chic ways.
