Be it a festive holiday party or a girls’ night out, your evening will start off more relaxed if you have a few outfits planned out ahead of time. Pre-planning allows you the precious time needed to pull yourself together, breathe, and enjoy a glass of bubbly before heading out the door.
Step 1: Plan Your Holiday Outfits
Check your calendar, what events require an outfit beyond your everyday uniform? Planning out a few holiday looks BEFORE the Holiday Season will save you valuable time and last-minute running around prior to your event. I find (THESE @AMAZON) closet dividers helpful for organizing looks within my closet. Scan your wardrobe. Do you own the foundations, accessories, shapewear, and outerwear needed in order to complete your holiday look?
Step 2: Accessories
Accessories are the key to creating a look that’s all your own. In our homes, we use accessories to make a house a home – ie: adding a few seasonal throw pillows or a cozy blanket to your sofa, adds a personal touch. When it comes to an outfit, you can achieve an entirely different look by simply swapping out your jewelry or throwing on a scarf. Short on time? A sparkly headband atop a ponytail, bun, OR hairpiece, can take your quick ‘do from blah to fab! I think a beautiful wrap is more glamorous than a cardigan for a night out. A fun bag, belt, hat, or bling are icing on the cake!
Step 3: Pulling It All Together
- Select one or two outfits that FIT and FLATTER your body, TODAY.
- Do you have accessories on hand that work back to your outfit?
- If nothing sparks joy, take the ENTIRE outfit, including the shoes, to your store of choice.
- Get help! A knowledgable salesperson will save you valuable time and money.
