It’s that time of the year again! This is the best time of the year to have an excuse to get all dolled up, with our hair did, nails did and everything did. We’re all so caught up in our own lives during the year so why not put on your very best when you visit the family. Yes I know what you’re thinking, we’re just going to eat and sit around anyways so why dress up. Dressing up just makes you feel good and when you feel good it shows and people notice. Not to mention how contagious it is. So go on and spread the good vibes and energy.
With Christmas just a day away I’ve pulled together three outfit ideas to get you through your dinner rounds this weekend. Whether you want to keep it comfy, glam or trendy, get style inspired and shop your favourite look below.
Ready to Rock
This is a great semi-casual look for the gals who want to be comfy, with some edge to it. Sweater dresses are super popular this season and they’re a quick go-to piece to make your dinner rounds this weekend.
This look is great for a dinner soirée where a dresscode is implied. Cocktails and o’dourves are served, music is playing and conversations are flowing. Even though you are covered up, this is a very sexy and sophisticated look. Leather is a sexy material, while red is a sexy colour. Put the two together and you have a match made in holiday fashion heaven.
This is my version of the sweat pants and hoodie plus Uggs. It’s a cozy and comfortable look without looking like you just rolled out of bed. I chose I slightly oversized knit sweater in mustard, an a-line skirt and over-the-knee boots for a casual feel. StyleTip: Pairing a slightly oversized sweater with a dressy bottom will give the same effect.
As the clock ticks down to the day I turn 30 (not fretting or anything) I’m becoming more of the woman I want to be. Not only emotionally and intellectually, but also when it comes to my personal style. I’m taking more risks, but also being mindful of what is appropriate for every part of my life. Knowing what works for me and what does not work for me. What I should splurge on versus what I can save on. Where and when to buy certain items. Over the past year and half I’ve really been sticking to the ‘less is more’ mindset when it comes to my wardrobe. If I purchase something new I remove something from my closet so that it’s not cluttered with pieces I no longer wear anymore. Editing and maintaining your wardrobe should not be something you do only at the start of Spring, but on a regular basis. Along with editing your wardrobe, you should also have key pieces that are considered your ‘go-to’ timeless items that will help build any look you want. These are the pieces that will help create your style uniform. The ones that will come in handy for that very important meeting, interview, first date or dinner party. I’ve rounded up my top 10 pieces every woman (and me) should own before 30.
