Let yourself shine at holiday events

Let yourself shine at holiday events

If the event is formal, go “Hollywood” with a fabulous floor-length gown and beautiful hair and makeup.

When all eyes are on you, feeling confident and beautiful is something you desire and deserve. Whether your style is classic and traditional or bold and dramatic, it all begins with the outfit and how it makes you feel. Holiday parties and events are the best time of year to let yourself shine! Here are some tips to make the most of those parties where you want to dazzle.

This is the time of year when you can have fun with your wardrobe, so go for it, within reason. Meaning sparkle, but don’t burst into flames! Adding a velvet jacket or sequin top with a skirt or dress pants offers a great look while being comfortable. Adding jewelry that has a punch of color or sparkle finishes the look.

If the event is extremely formal, you’ll want to opt for a floor-length gown. Think “Hollywood!” Let the gown accentuate your figure. Go for all satin or fully sequined, and then add a fur shawl or stole or a short sequined jacket.

Go BOLD when it comes to jewelry! Big, bright and colorful are the perfect way to go this time of year. Think iridescent and clear, which goes with all holiday outfits, or make that little dress pop with colorful accessories.

Don’t overlook your makeup. Go bolder on your eyes and more natural on your lips, or vice versa. Smoky looks for eye shadows are a great way to look soft and sexy with any outfit. Add blush on the apples of your cheeks for a finished holiday glamour.

The best advice for any event is to remember that whatever outfit you wear, you are beautiful inside and out and you should celebrate yourself every day!
