Glitter, fur, and velvet ... tis the season! Dazzle friends and family at your upcoming holiday event with these 4 festive outfit tips.
Your tree shouldn’t be the only thing that glitters and shines. This time of year is the best time to show off all your favorite bling, whether it be metallic accents on your shoes, or an heirloom brooch. Start with a basic velvet dress, paired with stylish compression pantyhose. Holiday parties are a blast, but we spend so much time on our feet. All those hours standing wont seem so bad, if your legs feel great. Dramatic jewelry makes holiday fashion so much fun.

These fabulous pieces are available at Anthropology.com. Go look take a, they have a gorgeous selection. Maybe you’ll even see something that would look great on your wishlist (hint, hint). If you’re going to put together a phenomenal outfit, you have to consider hair and makeup too. A great hair-do might not have to cost a fortune either. When we need hair inspiration we head over to Twist Me Pretty. Abby has a Hairstyle Gallery, filled with tutorials, for styles you can do yourself. A little practice is all it takes to master some really pretty braids. It’s amazing what a little hairspray and a couple bobby pins can do.
Now that you’ve got your hair covered, take a look at these holiday makeup trends. Be daring, try that lipstick shade you’ve been hesitant to try. A fun idea is to let the professionals do your makeup, for a change. Sit down at a MAC, Stila, or Lancome counter and let a makeup artist pick products and colors for you. They’ll show you how to wear new colors and even how to apply it. Having someone else do your makeup is such a treat! For the holidays we love a simple smoky eye and dramatic lipstick. These two products are all you really need.
