Fashion Trends for Holi-dos and don’ts
By Alexa Macek
The holidays are a time for friends, family, and of course, the parties! Seeing family members who you have not seen since this time last year, you will always want to make sure that you are looking just as good, if not better, than a year ago!
STYLE Consultant Group personal shoppers have hand picked major fashion trends that hit the runways this fall and winter season that can bring some cheer to your wardrobe.
- Feathers: Feathers on the end of a jacket, shirt or skirt will add a more lavish feel to your outfit, without becoming a pigeon lady, that is. Feathers bring a playful feel to any outfit. NORDSTROM offers an Alice + Olivia feather skirt with just enough ‘pow’ for a statement piece.
- Velvet: Yes, a 90’s fashion trend has come back. Velvet has become a very popular fabric for the fall and winter season, adding glitz and glam to your holiday fashion. Sequins may not be coming back as strong, but velvet is the next best thing. Finding a charming velvet dress can take your outfit to another level of appeal. This velvet dress from MODCLOTH hugs your curves in all the right places.
- Victorian: The Victorian trend has come from the runway and trickled all the way down to street style. This trend of lace, high neck lines, long sleeves and embroidery is much more than just a way to cover up because it’s cold outside. Finding a sexy way to bear some, but not all, skin is exactly how to rock this trend. For any holiday party, find a shorter hemline dress and even it out with a higher neckline. EXPRESS has a great selection of party dresses that have a feel of the Victorian trend.
The holidays can be a stressful time with work, family, travel and all the serious gifting that happens! STYLE Consultant Group personal shoppers strongly recommend making time for yourself and treating yourself to your own special gift this season… a great trendy outfit for all of these holiday parties!
