Sparkle at Holiday Gatherings This Year with Winter-Wonderful Styles

As the weather cools and thoughts turn toward the winter holidays, you may be wondering how to dress for those holiday parties and family gatherings on your calendar. As always, be sure your clothing is warm and comfortable. Then check the full-length mirror to make sure everything is in place before you leave the house, and you’ll be on your way to turning heads all holiday season long.

Does this sound a little too easy? It really isn’t. Top designers to the stars know that the best way to look great on the red carpet or runway is for a star or model to feel good in an outfit. When people feel comfortable and confident, their inner beauty shines through, complementing their style.

This year’s winter fashions offer something for every woman to feel cozy and comfortable wearing. A top look currently is texture layering, which offers great ways to stay warm while sporting high-end fashions in cold weather. Quilted fabrics, knits, fur or faux fur, leather looks and more feature as some of the year’s hottest textures, and pairing two or more results in hot-off-the-runway fashions perfect for the holidays.

A popular quilted jacket pairs great with a short leather skirt and opaque tights. Add a little holiday fun to the mix by pairing festive shoes with this outfit. A pair of metallic pumps will work great.

Sweaters and other knit items keep women warm and fashionable this year, and holiday time is a great time to take advantage of sweaters featuring metallic threads and embellishments. Complement the sweater with matching jewelry in similar metallic colors, and add a pair of boots with fur embellishments to maximize texture.

Layering sweaters over button-down tops or mock turtlenecks is another great way to stay warm while playing stacking textures for maximum appeal. A silk scarf in festive colors added to this combination steps the outfit up just a little for another fabulous holiday style. This outfit can be completed with a pair of jeans, tailored pants or a classic pencil skirt.

With lots of popular textures available for winter wardrobes this year, style possibilities are endless. Have fun mixing and matching articles of clothing and accessories as you dress to impress for the holidays.
