Styling Tips for this Holiday Season
1. Don't wear black
I know that this one is going to create a surprise for you all since the whole fashion industry has been about the Little Black Dress for over a century. However, here is what I have witnessed over and over again: every dress looks better in white on you that in black. There is a reason that the color black has been associated with sad events throughout history and I think that one of the main reasons the color black became popular is that it used to be a daring and differentiating choice of color to be worn to un-sad events. However, black has been over worn especially to formal events, parties, and work and does not carry that differentiating look anymore, so why would you opt for the color black that can make you less attractive than its opposite, the color white and for that matter all the other colors in the spectrum?
Black does not make you look slimmer, it makes you look smaller, older, and less vibrant. In addition, when it comes to creating the power look for yourself, I think that the color white and all other colors in rich hues triumph black.
In particular, I always wondered why women mostly choose to wear black when going to New Year's Eve parties! I mean I always want to start the new year with a vibrant, happy, hopeful, and young color, but if you want to go for a black dress, it is recommended that you choose a design that has an open upper body, showing your skin at shoulders and arms.
2. List of our go-to designers according to the style of the event
Before I start, the list below is by no means an exhaustive list as there are numerous other great choices. This list comes from some of my favorite brands for the events below. Clicking on the name of the brand will take you to their official website.
Going to a Christmas party, Banafsheh wore this vibrant red and blue style. Note how mixing rich shades of blue and red create a strong look and adding a seemingly unrelated print such as the leopard headband creates differentiation and a story to the look.
Her look is,
+ Cushnie Off-shoulder Top
+ Dolce & Gabbana Skirt
+ Chanel Velvet Boy Bag
+ Lele Sadoughi Leopard Print Satin Headbang
3. Accessorize with earrings and rings
Earrings and rings are the accessories that you should never skip on. Earrings are a frame for your face and the right ones can lift and brighten your face and rings bring femininity and attention to your hands which in turn affect your expressions. Below is a list of some of my most favorite brands for accessories but of course there are many more.
“You can always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say — the mind reels.” Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's
4. The pinched waist is always a good idea
Did you know that the first sign of femininity is the woman's waist or to be more precise is the ratio of her waist to hip? The smaller this ratio, the more sex appeal is subconsciously associated with her. That is why Christian Dior designs and creations have always been synonymous with femininity, because of The New Look that is focused on the pinched waist and a full skirt.
To accentuate your waist to hip ratio and elevate your look, wear designs that have a defined waistline and use a belt or even better a corset belt on it. I delved further into the appeal of corset belts, in particular, the ones from Alaia in another post, click here if you like to learn more and see the links for buying some of the most beautiful corset belts from Alaia.
5. Wear at least one item that shines
We all love shiny things such as stars, gold, diamonds, Christmas trees, magic wands, crowns, and beaches of Mykonos. Shine implies serendipity, so make sure you wear at least one item that shines. I personally love sparkling shoes and my most favorite shoe designer for them is Giuseppe Zanotti.
