Ultimate Style Guide: Creating Amazing Look for Holiday Parties

Staying trendy and fashionable during Christmas holidays is not something reserved for celebrities only. If you stay true to your style and add just a bit of festive touch to the overall look, you too can look gorgeous without losing any of that jolly spirit. Of course, you don’t have to buy expensive designer clothes if you’re on a budget. In general, all you need to know is how to combine your staples with festivity of this holiday. And with such a colorful market, this is definitely not that hard to do.

Elegant dresses

If you’re going to a Christmas party or festive dinner, you can’t go wrong with a flattering dress. There are many choices in the market, but it’s important to get the cut and style that suits your personality and body shape the best. Once you’re positive in your ability to shop for your unique self, you can undoubtedly make things more festive. If it’s a party where will be a lot of fun and dancing, try out sequin dresses in silver and gold. If it’s a bit more formal, you can try out elegant cuts in forest green or bright red. Even if you decide to go with neutrals such as black or white, you can spice things up in a festive manner with adequate jewelry and accessories.

Veronica Marché has a marker and a stylish vision!

About a month ago I saw a really nice illustration of Malia Obama on my FB feed, and it had a “fashion-y” approach to it that immediately caught my eye. I was very intrigued because I loooove all types of illustrations, especially fashion illustrations. I then followed the links back to the artist of this work and immediately became a fan! It was so refreshing to see a young illustrator focusing on creating beautiful images that highlight and celebrate Black Women.

Styled by Vitamin F – Memorial Day Looks!

Styled by vitamin f

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end. Memorial Day has also become a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race. – Wikipedia.com

We will officially welcome the start to “lazy summer days” this weekend! During which many of us (here in the States) will attend beach parties, backyard BBQ’s and top it all off with a few nights of going out. Not to forget the real reason for celebrating Memorial Day, let’s try to pay tribute to the holiday with “Americana” themed weekend style. We’ve put together 3 different looks, (Beachy Keen, Grill Stripe Chic, and Flirty/Fitted- Festive/Flowy) that will be perfect for your various holiday weekend festivities.
