It’s that time of the year again! Yes, it is definitely that time of the year again wherein most of us pretty people contemplate for hours, melting mirrors by staring at it for prolonged instances and sighing endlessly while thinking “What the heck should I wear this time!”. I couldn’t tell you more how beautiful, glamorous and good-looking we all are, but we all had our darkest times, literally our darkest times hiding in the closet before going to a special occasion. Whether it be a planned event for Thanksgiving, a Christmas party or a sudden invitation to hang out and get drunk after Halloween! Anytime can be “That time of the year” for us fabulous contemplators. Luckily, being fashionable can be attained by these 5 Tips and Tricks we would be covering in this article.
- Size Really matters
No matter what occasion or holiday It is, it is very important to consider outfit size. Avoid using outfits that you might have found exactly fitting 3 years ago for your last minute choice when in a rush unless you have tried them out or wore them just recently and it still perfectly fits you, and of course, suits you. When in doubt, wear something comfortable and breathable since confidence can’t flourish with taut jeans or a top.
- Rise and Accessorize
Instead of being complacent about having something to wear for the holiday, lock your doors and be personally wild! Open drawers and storage boxes that might be hiding precious gems you might have forgotten about. Give your stuff a chance to shine in the spotlight once more! You might come across a bracelet given as a gift for example. Nostalgia spices up holidays in the best way possible.
- Watch your watch
Beautiful people like us often forget the value of the jewelry strapped on our wrists. Not the monetary value, but the importance of this accessory we wear at different “times”. There are no standards set on which watch type is best to wear. Practicality should be very well balanced with aesthetics. A sports watch for example is best worn with outdoor activities, like a water-resistant type to get you prepared just in case a friend pushes you in a pool. On the other hand, metallic watches can be a great fit for formal indoor activities. A lot of watches nowadays have customizable straps to match the color of your suit or dress. Watches are also best buds with earrings or necklaces when complemented properly.
- Choosing the Right Colors
Color choice is as important as choosing what to wear. As a matter of fact and experience, the color sets the mood of the beholder and also the confidence level of the person wearing the chosen color. It is very important to choose a color you are confident in wearing and it is also as important to match your confidence with the vibe your chosen color represents.
The color Black reflects power, authority, and attracts respect among the crowd, which would be a perfect choice during speeches and formal events during the holidays. Not to mention that Black is great with after-parties too!
Red also symbolizes power and authority but is mostly associated with passion. I challenge you to look at anything Red in color and I can assure you that you would feel an intense feeling. Red is wearable during Christmas but refrain from combining it with green to avoid looking like Santa Clause.
White is often associated with purity, dignity, innocence and cleanliness. White will most work with parties and informal events. Looking at white gives you the “Chill and easy” feeling and also makes you look approachable.
There are tons of colors we haven’t specified yet but I am sure by reading color descriptions aboce, you’ll get the analogy and be able to combine and mix with your own taste.
- Hair-do and Hair-don’t
Your hair is as important as your face and what you wear. It is a no-brainer that your hair must be well maintained for you to have it styled easily for the holiday. A right haircut, hairstyle or hair color can make your face look brighter and prettier as ever.
Bonus Tip: Change For Yourself, But Be Yourself
These tips would definitely not work if you can’t wear what you are. No matter what the outfit is, your personality is what would stand out the most. Your personality is what dresses you up more than what you are wearing. Cheers and Happy Holidays!
