This time of the year is always magical with all Christmas decorations, fun get together’s, parties and holidays. Though I am not a christian, yet it’s one of my favorite times of the year. Being born and raised in the most diverse country and being an alumni of a missionary school, Christmas celebrations has always been a part of my life. I remember my teachers dressing up as Santa Clause and distributing chocolates, it’s one of my fond memories from my childhood and not to forget the winter holidays, they were the best!
Celebrations are full on swing right now. I bet your schedule must be jam packed with holiday events and soiree. To make holiday dressing easy for you, here are my 5 tips to look festive no matter the occasion.
1. Reach for sequins and gold prints
This is the only time of the year when excessive glitter is both encouraged and appreciated. So jump at the chance to over dress with no post regrets. Printed pant or skirt, glitter shoes, sequin top, and velvet blazer are some of the easy ways to add glam to your outfit. Remember the saying the more the merrier before picking your outfit this holiday season.
This outfit is perfect for office parties. It is formal and has the right amount of glam to it. I choose the pants and shoes to work the magic for me and kept the rest of the look simple.

2. Find a festive focal point
Add a bold element that will instantly make your outfit more festive like a red lipstick, statement earrings or a necklace or shoes that shine! Anything that pops out and adds a little oomph to your party outfit is your friend my friend!.
3. Holiday palettes inspired
If you are all about customs and traditions then an ugly Christmas sweater with a santa hat will do the magic for you. Apart from that, plaid and pieces in red or green will easily set the festive mood. This outfit is great for occasions where you want to feel the festive vibes but don’t want to go overboard. The combination of red plaid and green skirt screams Christmas to me

4. Skinny Jeans are always an option
There isn’t an occasion where a skinny jeans can’t make its mark (well! except for a wedding, I guess). A chic detailed blouse, skinny jeans and heels tops any fashion rule book. To add the festive glam, go for party heels and red lipstick. This look is dainty and great for casual home and office parties.

5. Go for casuals that shine
Well all that is simple can also twinkle! Materials like leather, and suede gives you the comfort of a casual wear but at the same time is graceful like a party wear. If you are all about low key style but want to wear something that will distinguish from your regular wear then this outfit is perfect for you. Leather legging and glitter sneaks makes a killer casual party combo, isn’t it?
