5 Style Tips To Feel Your Fabulous Best This Festive Season

5 Style Tips To Feel Fabulous This Festive Season

It’s the season to dazzle; whether at a party, with family and friends, or enjoying Christmas lunch, tis the season to enjoy being more daring with your wardrobe and rocking those pieces that you may not usually wear throughout the rest of the year.

When it comes to finding outfit inspiration, as usual Pinterest and Instagram are my go to resources, but so is my very own wardrobe. I have some key favourite pieces that I bring out year after year such as my investment faux fur coats and metallic accessories, and even those pieces I’ve been wearing on repeat recently such as this cosy knit which I thought would make a fabulous contrast to a sparkling sequin skirt. I’d recommend opening up your wardrobe a few days in advance so there’s less pressure on the day, and to give yourself time to prepare and invest in a new piece if you feel that your outfit needs a little something extra!
It’s the perfect time of year to add jewel tones to your look; don’t be afraid of some sparkle for a festive look full of fun and vibrancy; choose tones such as royal blue, gold or emerald green that you may shy away from at other times of year.Don’t scrimp on the sparkle – dresses with sequins and sparkles bring festive pizazz to any occasion, and there’s so may options on the highstreet including this gold sequin midi skirt, and see more in my sparkling lookbook that just went live on YouTube!  If you don’t want to invest in a new outfit but love the sound of wearing something sparkling, look to your accessories, such as this , or a pair of metallic toned heels like my rose gold Valentinos.
When your outfit is bold, contrast with minimal makeup, paying attention to either the eyes or lips, but not both. I spoke about planning my makeup for a Christmas Party in my previous post here. Equally ensure your hands and feet are well groomed; I like to book in for a mani pedi at my favourite London Grace the week before Christmas with a gel polish to ensure no chips over the festive season, and I opted for the sparkling light gold shade of ‘Bellini’ to match my sparkling outfits.
It’s so important to keep it comfy! No matter how stylish my outfit, comfort is always key (hence the cosy knit and go-to shoes!) you can be ultra glamorous but pair your sparkles with soft fabrics, elasticated waistbands and comfy shoes so you can indulge and dance as much as you like without getting uncomfortable!! Style is important yes, but you’ll never look and feel fabulous if you’re not confident and comfortable in what you’re wearing!

If in doubt, reach for your favourite LBD. There are so many christmas outfit options, we are spoilt for choice! Often, simplicity is key and there’s nothing more versatile and flattering as an LBD. A part of every girls wardrobe, dress it up with the right accessories and you’ll feel fabulous all evening. Whether it’s a statement necklace, a beautiful faux fur  stole, or glittering accessories, add a touch of sparkle to give a festive touch to your most faithful LBD!
