Your little red dress.
Bring back the old Hollywood glam. Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe rocked it, now, it’s your turn. Get your 15 minutes of fame in a red-hot holiday frock. No matter what shade, it’s a standout color. Who really wants to blend into the background anyways? Not you, you’re the next Hollywood starlet! Well, at least for the night.
Lace, sparkles, or bright, go with whatever catches your eye. Buying vintage is a sure way to have a one-of-a-kind piece. Stay classic with black shoes, or reach for the stars in a pair of gold high heels. Red lipstick is a must do with this look-it wouldn’t be Hollywood glam without it!
Are you amused by shiny things? Let’s face it so are we, as is everyone else out there. So, steal all the attention at your party in a glamours, glittery sequin dress! Go over the top, or just add a hint of sparkle. Either way, you’re sure to be the sparkle in someone’s eye that evening!
Picking your color will be the hardest part! Once you have, pair with a simpler shoe. A little bit of shimmer on your feet can work too, but don’t go overboard! Finish your outfit off with metallic makeup, and either bold lip, or nude for a softer look.
Leave an (im)print
This season it’s all about prints and patterns. You can make your imprint on the party and leave everyone talking about how fabulous you looked. After all, isn’t leaving an impression the reason we get all gussied up in the first place?
With so much to choose from, it may be tough to find the perfect print. Go with colors you know you look great in. Don’t be afraid to try a pattern that may be a bit loud, remember you want to be noticed! If the pattern speaks for itself, tone down the makeup with a soft look, and a pale lip.
