One of the saddest thing about 2020 was not putting out the Holiday Dressing Guide. So many people were pulling back on events and gathering that I decided to skip a year until we could get back into full swing with Christmas parties, Santa visits and overall holiday fun.
The last time I produced this guide was in 2019 which feels like an actual lifetime ago!
Trends – Holiday Dressing Guide
What is trending this holiday season? I am about to break it down for you.
There is always an unexpected color that comes into holiday outfits and my prediction this year is that it is going to be copper! I love the thought of adding the beautiful orangey hue to emerald green or mixing it with gold. It is a beautiful color and will look so much better on warm skin tones that traditional red.
Always a trend for winter and holiday but this year it is really taking the place of sequins for the season. I love a sequin but velvet is more practical. Definitely something you will have more options to wear.
Blame the Real Housewives I guess but embellished shoes are gaining a lot of popularity. Boots with chain details, rhinestone brooches on flats and sequins on heels.
I love a hat but this year it is all bows, bows, bows. I linked several below that are beyond cute!
Two Piece Sets
Moving on from fall and into the holidays two piece sets are coming with us.
Sip and Shop / Open House
There is always some fun shopping event where we live in Mandeville. Open Houses, school’s hosting markets and my favorite the sip and shop. Even though it is basically running errands we still want to be fashionable and cute.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the theater for the first time since 2020. It was so beautiful and reminded me of all of the amazing times I have had during the holidays at the theater. The Nutcrackers is simply my favorite. I always love to find something classy and elegant and not always in a traditional Christmas color.
To think, we may be able to go to school parties this year! It may be wishful thinking but I wanted to make sure I had a category in here to meet your needs.
Fancy. Fabulous. Glamourous. Sparkle. Shine. These are all of the things I would use to describe my Christmas party attire.
I put a lot of different options in here. We usually dress up for Christmas Eve but I know there are families who keep it casual. I tried to include a little of both.
The culmination of all of the holiday events. We keep our Christmas pretty casual which is reflected in my picks.
