The holidays are here! Are you getting into the spirit? While I’m not thrilled about braving the malls, I am excited about dressing up for a party or two. Spiegel asked me to shop their site and put together a modern festive look. Here are my party picks and 5 rules for looking hot these holidays!
Invest in basics
You can’t go wrong with a classic black dress. It’s always in style! Wear this long, flowy dress now and then take it for a spin on the dance floor at New Year’s.
Save on sparkle
You can make a major statement with inexpensive accessories. I’m willing to go a little out of my comfort zone and wear bigger bling when it doesn’t break the bank.
Who can keep up with what colors are in or out? Add pattern mixing and color blocking and I’m overwhelmed. So I stick with one color. Black jacket with dress? Of course. Silver sweater with a pencil skirt? Yes, please. Add bonus points for making you look taller and thinner.
Pick an accent color
We all have that color that makes you feel like a million bucks (mine is red – surprise!). You don’t need to wear the color head to toe, just add add a dose with your bag or shoes. The pop of color instantly ups the wow factor.
Wear high heels
Don’t you instantly feel sexier in high heels? Pick a shoe with a bit of a platform, like this one, and your feet will thank you at the end of the night.
