December is always a fun month for parties and social gatherings surrounding the holidays and we thought it would be fun to show off some holiday looks for the December Ageless Style linkup. This year instead of ordering an outfit or two only suited for the holidays, I decided to shop my closet and pull together a fun party look with some pieces I already had on hand.
In my opinion you can never go wrong starting with an all black base especially if you have found yourself like me with little self control. When I’m carrying a little extra fluff, wearing all black allows me to feel pulled together but gives an appearance of a slimmer look.
This vest has been in my closet for at least 4 years and every year I say I’m going to finally let it go but so far it keeps hanging on. Adding a little fur is an easy way to add some glam to an other wise plain outfit.
I really wish these booties had photographed a little better as they are pretty fun. I purchased four years ago for a special trip to NYC for New Years and I still love pulling them out to add a little sparkle to an outfit.
Off the shoulder tops are flirty and fun so but I never thought to add under a vest. I’m kind of loving how this turned out!
Adding more vibrant makeup can also take a holiday look up a notch. Due to some article I read several years back, I really shy away from deep, dark lipsticks as the story is they make you look older and momma doesn’t need any help with that! However, most holiday gatherings are going to be in dimmer light and I think adding a fun deep lipstick can really be a showstopper. This bright red has been in my drawer for a really long time and I loved how it looked with this outfit.
My last tip would definitely be wear something you feel comfortable and confident in. There is nothing like showing up for a social dressed in an outfit you are self conscious in. If I am confident in my outfit I will be more likely to participate in conversations and enjoy the night even if I may not be dressed like everyone else.
So what is your go to holiday look? I definitely am not opposed to wearing colors nor getting a little fancier! I’ve pulled together some items almost identical to the ones I’m wearing plus a great green dress I really thought I ordered on Black Friday but it has yet to show up! Oops!
