The holidays are the perfect excuse to dress up, wear fun pieces you haven’t had the chance too, play with new colors/ textures/ patterns, and more. Or...just stay true to your style and feel comfortable and confident. We have put together some holiday look inspiration combining style + beauty elements within this post to help you stay Prept for holiday season. You'll be able to shop exact/similar products from the looks at the very bottom.
Things to consider incorporating into your holiday outfit:
silks & satin
color (i.e. pops of red, blue, green, silver, gold)
sparkle (sequins, shiny fabrics)
You will see tips peppered throughout this post, but one main one to consider is that if you do play with a statement piece, consider letting this be the element that makes your outfit stand out and style the look around this piece...unless of course you are really going for a bolder, editorial look, which in that case, go for it! Another key tip: for statement pieces, it is worth considering renting/thrifting/finding things on sale vs. buying pieces you might only wear once. Checkout this post on renting and find some rental recs in here as well.
