Holiday festivities can be rough for two types of people – introverts who don’t necessarily love spending time with others and people who just can’t decide what to wear. Today, I have made life a little easier for the latter group – aka the ones I relate to. We are going to talk fashion for some classic holiday get-togethers you may attend this year based on some things I have in my own closet!
Trip to the Christmas Market
If I lived in the city, I would be the first person in line opening day of the Christmas market. For me, the market is as much about being cozy as it is about enjoying the sights and company. I recommend mixing a comfy sweater (this is the softest one I own) with some casual jeans and of course a great scarf. The Canadian weather certainly isn’t encouraging layers as much as it normally would be but I would still pair with a cute wool coat. Make sure that you finish the look with a cute nude lip and a winged liner because you will have to take that #TCM2015 selfie!
Nothing is more fun than being fancy and festive. A LBD is the perfect way to do just that! Go super simple with the dress/shoe combo and put your effort where it counts – in the hair and makeup! I am all about the dark, statement lip this year and the Bite lipstick is my favourite this winter.
Christmas morning snuggled up by the fire and opening presents is all about comfort. For this joyous occasion, I suggest pulling out your favourite onesie or matching PJ set and comfiest socks/slippers. Ain’t nobody got time for a full face of makeup when there are gifts to exchange. However, I do suggest the gift of a Christmas face wash and some moisturizing lip chap after all those long days of lipstick.
We always end up having some sort of lunch or brunch with at least one group of my family members. When it comes to this kind of short but sweet visit, I like to be comfy but still pulled together. Are you seeing a pattern here? Nothing is better than a pair of lulus, a big sweater and some boots. You’ll look like you jumped right off of a sleek sleigh ride but still feel as warm as a cup of hot cocoa.
Family Christmas Dinner
Finally we reach the mother of all meals – Christmas dinner. I always debate whether to dress up or stay casual for this part of the season. I mean I certainly have to account for the amount of turkey I will consume but I always feel better and more prepared for the obligatory family photo when I put in some effort. This year, try pairing a cute basic top and skirt with some knee socks, cute jewelry and bright lips to leave you feeling festive and bright.
