I am OBSESSED with Christmas. In September, I started making a wishlist of all the presents I would like to get ( crazy!). In June, I started planning the Christmas menu. (really crazy !) And every single day I contemplate about the perfect outfit for Christmas Eve. (absolutely bonkers!).
However, this craziness has it benefits as well! I can now proudly announce that I am a true connoisseur of what (not) to wear on Christmas. And brace yourself, I am about to share my wise advice with all of you.
Tip 1: Accessorize
Against common standards, you don’t necessarily need to wear a glittery/gold/ shiny dress to impress on Christmas Eve. On the contrary, it can often be more affective to wear a basic black, grey or red dress and pimp it with the right accessories. A pair of statement earrings or –my personal favorite- a gold luxury embellished collar cannot only be worn on Christmas but also on all sorts of other occasions! Just think about how much fun it would be to impress your butcher with a pair of bling bling earrings!
Tip 2: Dress like a dude
A well-tailored women’s suit can be ridiculously sexy. Just look at Halle Berry, Leighton Meester or Eva Longoria! Or why not try these sequined baggy trousers? Believe me, ALL EYES WILL BE ON YOU!
Tip 3: Christmas in technicolor
Don’t get me wrong, I love wearing black&gold or red, but why not opt for a more untraditional colour this year? Purple, bright pink, green, yellow or all these colours combined?
