Whether you’re trying to figure out what to wear to a holiday party, family dinner or even New Years Eve, knowing the latest trends always helps. Holiday fashion is about pulling out all the stops and going bold. These holiday staples in women’s clothing, including dresses, separates and accessories (all with Cash Back at Ebates), incorporate some must-try trends that will give your special-occasion looks a chic upgrade.
Frills and Flare
We’ve been noticing a healthy dose of flounce, ruffles and flare in Christmas fashion silhouettes this year. However, it’s important not to overdo it. This Eloquii dress in lively emerald has just the slightest nod to this trend with a flared sleeve.
A single ruffle across the front of this A.L.C. dress goes a long way in making a chic statement. Plus, the color is perfect for those who crave a little brightness, even in the winter.
This flared sweater skirt not only boasts a flirty shape, but goes the extra mile with some subtle sparkle and shimmer.
Sometimes we need to leave it all up to the shoes to make a splash with our holiday look. These gold metallic pumps are neural enough to go with almost anything with and will easily pump up your favorite LBD.
Gold and silver are go-to holiday colors but pewter will always let you stand apart from the pack. This bold glitter heel is perfect for any glamour girl.
An embellished heel like this one really is a show-stopper. Pair pumps like this with a simple sheath dress to really let them make a splash.
Pops of Red
Dressing in red may seem like a great idea, but you run the risk of looking like a giant Christmas present. Instead, opt for bold pops of red, the most classic of which is a sultry red lipstick like this NARS semi-matte shade.
A simple yet structured red clutch is so completely fierce and breaks through the noise of sparkle and shine to make a bold fashion statement.
This red geometrical collar necklace also has the same effect. Since the color is so eye-catching, go with a more muted makeup palette like a smokey eye and nude lip.
Not wearing white after labor day is a dated fashion rule that must be buried and forgotten. White on white looks are crisp, clean and downright fierce. You can easily pull them off for holiday events with a few staples, one of which is a sassy little white blazer.
Pressed white slacks with a slim fit and a full length are also totally winter-friendly, especially when paired with a pointed pump or bootie.
And the Pièce De Résistance of winter white looks has to be the white jumpsuit. A flared leg jumpsuit like this is a nod to vintage fashion while still keeping it totally relevant.
Sequin is of course a holiday fashion staple and we know it may seem intimidating. But fear not! Even all-over sequin looks, like this sequin jumpsuit, are completely acceptable for holiday functions. What fun would they be without a little pageantry?
Sequin pieces don’t have to be the standard gold, silver and black either. This sequin midi skirt is stunningly iridescent and would look fabulous with a shell top or sweater.
If you are still not totally sold on sequin, try some accessories like this silver sequin clutch. A little glitz and glam does do a long way for your holiday look.
