I know I’m being a little premature getting prepared for the festive season, but it won’t be long before the first invitations of the season arrive on your doorstep.
I like to get well ahead of the game and plan my outfit early. If you’re struggling for ideas, take a look at my planned outfit for some inspiration. I’ve opted for an outfit that’s sophisticated, without the danger of being too formal.
Shopping at the mall stresses me out, especially in the run-up to Christmas when things are hectic. To save myself time and hassle, I shop for my outfit from the cosy confines of my bedroom, without having to take off my favorite fluffy slippers!
City Goddess is a great place to grab a glamorous party dress. They stock a huge selection of wholesale party dresses, including this gorgeous jeweled chiffon shift dress which I’ve chosen to don for the first event of the Christmas season. I love the geometric design of this dress, which I think will really stands out. Classic black is always perfect for elegant evenings, although the jeweled detail and the length makes it perfect for parties.
I’m planning on pairing it with black heels, minimalist accessories and some striking red lipstick. Wearing red is a big statement, so it’s important to get it right. Take a look at this helpful tutorial video, created by Lisa Eldridge. She takes you through all of the steps to creating perfect, lasting red lips.
The jeweled design of the dress I’ve chosen has quite a lot going on, hence while I’ll be wearing minimal accessories with it. However, this gives me much more scope to do something extra-special with my hair.
I’ve been using this guide to Christmas party hair styles for inspiration. There are lots of styles suitable for all hair lengths, so you’re sure to find something to suit. I’m loving the classic up-dos, as modeled by the likes of Emily Blunt and Camilla Belle. Having your hair up is perfect for elegant evenings and doesn’t distract from the detail of dress.
Happy outfit planning ladies!
