Foolproof holiday dressup tips..

Here are a few pointers to keep in mind while dressing up for that holiday party, AT ANY BUDGET!
for a night with your friends...
1. A great fitting black dress goes a long way, try out draped dresses or those with some textures.
2. When in doubt go for that perfect knee length black dress with a waist belt, your few extra holiday pounds will hardly show.
3. Invest in a fabulous pair of heels, in a shimmery neutral, they will go a long way, and with a lot of your outfits.
4. A clutch bag with some details, a slight embroidery or a motif, feathers ( current trend ) is an investment piece.
5. Those hollywood drop earrings are not just for the red carpet moments, they can bring an instant upgrade to any outfit, in any budget.
6. Make sure there is a pop of color somewhere in your outfit, but not too much for the eyes and not in every piece you wear.

Always remember this look can be achieved with any budget, from local discount shops to couture garments, just keep it clean, no body likes to see a shabby dress, stay positive and you never have to worry about how cheap or expensive a dress you have got!!

A hint on how to rock that office party...
1. Dont be scared to try that bold red colored dress, its the holiday spirit, get into it.
2. Keep the accessories simple, you dont want everything in bright shades, that is when it gets too much.
3. A classic cut dress goes a long way, with just a slight detailing that catches the eye.
4. Lace is a classic option, but try and avoid the cheap synthetic imitations, even within shopping in budget.

Again, this look can be achieved with any budget.

Here's a tip for when you have that family dinner...
So you do wanna be fashionable but not come across as too sluty, you want style oozing out but not so much as to come across as rude towards other less fashionably blessed sibblings....

1. Keep it simple- a nice, well fitted dress in a neutral other than black should work well for your style satisfaction
2. Don't overdo the accessories, but none the less add some sparkle, its holiday season afterall.
3. Add color somewhere but flow along the color scheme of your ensemble.
4. Look into the mirror before you go out, if you can't get your eye fixed on 1 thing, you are wearing a bit too many. Try to leave the focus on one centre piece.
5. Just go out and have fun with your family, bond well and remember you are your own style queen. :)

Again, this look does not need to burn your pockets, its a simple rule guide, that can give you the desired result with any budget you got. Try taking out old wardrobe staples, and mixing them with new accessories to give them a new life...
