Finally it feels like Christmas is round the corner, the winter chills have finally arrived in Goa and I’m guessing most of you have already started decorating your homes and your Christmas Tree. Christmas this year has come early for me with special gifts from friends & family who couldn’t be there to partake in the festivities this time.
As you all know, I’m working on my Christmas trends series and did a post on the Long & Chic Dress last week. If you missed it, here is the link : https://materialgirlindia.wordpress.com/2017/12/15/christmas-trend-wear-it-long-and-chic/
Christmas season calls for multiple events and we are always on the lookout for outfits that can be styled for different occasions, be it a formal church event, a party or a wedding, for today’s post I have put together two looks that can be worn effortlessly to make your festive season even more exciting !
So here goes..
Look 1: Dress worn two Ways!
A: take me to Church
So for the first look, I will show you how to wear a dress for a formal party as well as for a night out with equal ease
A formal dress with the right length and coverage is always a must while attending a formal event like mass or a wedding ceremony. For this look, pick your favourite Red Dress that may be resting at the back of your closet, all you need is a decent length and a high neckline. To explain further, see how I put on my favourite Forever 21 Dress and teamed it with my H&M white blazer to get this perfect elegant ready for church look 😉
For shoes I’m wearing a pair of Nuon Silver Shine closed toe flats available at the nearest Westside store. To add a little more sparkle to this ensemble I’m also carrying a silver clutch that compliments my shoes and goes well with my look.
B: Be Party RED-dy
Now the catch here is simple, this dress is actually backless and makes a perfect party dress for Christmas eve of the wedding reception after. So all you need to do is take off that blazer and change your earrings to something more dazzling and wear a pair of perfect dancing shoes and your good to go. The sultry and bold feature of this evening dress is the back, the floral lace design and revealing back looks absolutely gorgeous making this the ultimate party wear.
When carrying a red dress for a night out always remember to not overdo your make up and see that it compliments your look. This season a little shimmer is definitely a must try and I would recommend using a silver or gold eyeshadow to dramatize those lovely eyes for an evening with your loved ones.
Look 2: Suit Up
Now as I’d mentioned this is a 3 part series, I’ve shared my third look with you which is something RED but not a dress!
Christmas season is not just about dressing up in fancy gowns and suiting up in your best couture wear, how about going a step away from the regular dress like one piece and wearing a Jumpsuit instead? I have come across several websites and stores with velvet and satin jumpsuits that are nothing short of spectacular. Shein and Koovs have a great collection that you must indulge in and I’d definitely recommend a few .. Myntra too has a few in RED .
If you’re looking to break the tradition and want to set hearts racing then get yourself one of these lovely Jumpsuits and hit it to the party scene. Jumpsuits in full length pants are just too haawt for a lady, worn with confidence is all the effort one needs. Red suits any lady, no matter what the occasion and is one of my favourites. In this look I’m wearing my favourite Red Jumpsuit from Noble Faith and I’ve paired it with silver jhumkis. To complete the look wear a pair of contrasting footwear and voila you are all set.
If you would like to get deets on how to pull off this look, do read my earlier post on “Red is your color this season” Here is the link: https://materialgirlindia.wordpress.com/2017/09/12/red-for-the-season/
So guys, I hope this Christmas Special Series has inspired you in a way to experiment with your wardrobe and share with me your favourite Christmas look that you think that’s doing the rounds this season!
Also don’t hesitate to comment with your feedback or expectations from our future posts to come.
