Style it up this Christmas & New Year!

I loveeeee Christmas and New Year! All those lights and resolutions (that will be left incomplete!) and the colours. Christmas with its reds and whites and greens — such beautiful combinations of colours and clothes. And it’s also the time to dress up and welcome the New Year with a BANG!

Here are some of my favourite ideas for Christmas and New Year outfits

For the Christmas bell

Try and get a Christmas tree this year. It’s fun to decorate and spend some time with your siblings or your parents while you do so. Christmas is a family holiday. Get your parents a gift even if it’s something small. It’s the gesture that matters and they will appreciate it. And maybe get yourself a gift to!

Dressy Christmas

GIRLS: A dress is the best outfit for any occasion. It can be casual, formal and dressy, all at the same time. It’s a very versatile piece of clothing. Pair a basic red dress and wear it with a green or white long cardigan or a long jacket. You can pick the layer depending on the weather in your area. You can also wear a white dress with a red or green cardigan or long jacket. This outfit is very simple and can be worn for a party or for a formal Christmas celebration.

GUYS: Pick a white or red T-shirt and pair it with jeans and a jacket. I would recommend a leather jacket for a party and a blazer for a more formal occasion. The blazer is a classic outfit and looks amazing. Pick a V-neck tee or a round-neck tee. You can also wear a shirt with a Mandarin collar along with a blazer. Choose festive colours; if you can’t handle red go with green and white. A nice shade of emerald green or bottle green won’t look bad!

Keeping it casual

Going for a casual dinner with family or having a cozy night at home? Try out these outfit ideas.

GIRLS: Pair bell bottoms with a basic off-shoulder top or a full-sleeved tie-up top. If you can’t carry off bell bottoms, try high-waist jeans and pair with a bell-sleeved top. Choose festive colours for your top.

GUYS: A sports luxe jacket or a bomber jacket can be your saviour. Simply wear a bomber jacket in a festive colour; maybe a red or white bomber jacket with your casual jeans and a tee. It’s pretty basic but it keeps the Christmas spirit alive.
