Can you believe that the holiday party season is just a month away? It seems like this year is flying by way too quickly and I am still hoping to achieve all the goals that I set for myself back in January. On the other hand, one month until festivities is a good time to start planning your party outfits. And I have decided to have a little chat with you about that today.
In my opinion, accessories have so much power to change the mood of an outfit, turn your usual workwear into an appropriate evening wear with just a change of shoes or a quick swap from the big tote to a beautiful and miniature chain bag. I knew I lacked in the said ‘miniature chain bag’ department and wanted to get something ahead of the party season that would look great with almost any outfit. And after some serious research, I found a perfect Saint Laurent bag on Farfetch website.
This was one of those occasions when I wanted my outfit to complement my bag and not the other way around. I wanted my holiday look this year to be festive, yet stylish and classy. So I paired sparkles and sequins with rather ‘serious’ trousers to balance each other out and create the outcome I was hoping for. I wanted my bag to stand out and not get lost in this look and I am happy with the result.
While thinking and researching all things party season related I also came up with a few tips on how you can nail your outfits this year:
– pay close attention to your accessories (bags, shoes, hair accessories, belts, etc) as they are the quickest way to dress up any outfit
– play with glitter and sequins (just don’t overdo it)
– use glitter in your makeup and/or nails
– have a browse on Farfetch for some perfect party season buys
– smile and be confident!
