Hot Tips For The Cold Holiday Season!

The holiday season is upon us once again! Sure we're all excited to wrap and unwrap our gifts (who wouldn't be?!) but another and possibly bigger plus is switching our wardrobe by pulling out some of our favorite pieces again. Winter fashions can be just as glamorous and exciting as summer. The following are some tips to keep you warm, yet oh-so fashionable this holiday season:

First off, lets talk about things that keep us warm during these cold months. Big, lumpy coats are warm but not very attractive sometimes, especially if you're going to one of the many holiday parties that are just around the corner. Don't hide your outfit with a bulky jacket, instead pull out your super wide-legged trousers and pair them with a jewel-toned blouse and a fitted shrug. Now the tip to keep warm: wear a pair of thermals under the trousers. The wide-legged pants are super fashionable and also the perfect cover for your thermals!

If pants aren't your thing; pull out your pencil skirt and pair it with a pair of patterned stockings and those bootie heels that are so hot right now! Keep your top more demure with this type of outfit as to showcase the bottom half of your emsamble.

Accessories, accessories, accessories!! They can glam up even the most boring of outfits! If your look is more subtle, add a chunky/blinged-out necklace. Everything's about glitz, glam and grandeur during the holiday season, so don't be afraid to go a little over the top when it comes to your accessories. Sometimes we don't realize that shoes are most often the greatest tool in our closet. They also have the power to amp up your outfit and act as the perfect accessory. If your going for a dressed up look, pick the bootie heels; for a more casual look riding-boots look amazing with skinny jeans or leggings and are a must to add to your shoe collection.

So there you have it. Just because it's cold out does not mean we have to skimp on being fashionable. Its all about mixing and matching. Pair some of your old classics with new trends and you'll surely be be ready for all of the holiday festivities to come!
