Dressing up for a Holiday Party

The Freeman

CEBU, Philippines - The holiday season, as everyone knows, means a series of get-togethers and parties. If it's a reunion of any kind, the most important thing is to be present, no matter the state of being. But, come on, why not also grab the opportunity to assert oneself - to look stunning and unforgettable.

It doesn't mean blowing away everyone else at the party. It doesn't mean looking formidable, either. It simply means looking good so everyone who sees you feels good.

The problem perhaps is how to achieve the proper "good" look. Well, each one for sure has her own way of looking "good." But taking heed of good advice won't hurt. The fashion website  fashion.allwomenstalk.com offers the following ideas.

1. Focus on it.

No matter how you will be dressing up for your holiday parties this season, the single most important factor to a successful outfit is good fit. Do justice to your shape with the right silhouette, hemline, and overall garment structure - if you need help, a good tailor can be your best friend.

2. Add the right accessories.

From black-tie to dressed-up denim, great accessories can take your holiday party look to the next level. Highlight a low neckline with a statement necklace, draw attention to your face with dramatic earrings, or compliment a sleeveless look with a cuff bracelet. Oh, and don't forget your clutch!

3. Absolutely do sparkle.

'Tis the season for glamour and what better way to dress up for a holiday party than by adding some sparkle! Think sequins, beading and bling for a stand-out look ideal at a festive event. Just remember, a little embellishment goes a long way; so moderation is key.

4. Play with color.

Some people love wearing black, but the truth is that colorful clothing, accessories or shoes can add instant drama and strong visual appeal to your party look. For best results, balance a splash of color with neutral pieces, and opt for must-have jewel tones - they are sexy, flattering, and impossibly cool for any event.

5. Consider the climate.

The humid temperatures and the rain can be a challenge for even the most fashionable of women to dress up and dare whatever weather is obtaining outside. Instead of fighting the elements, pair your holiday party look accordingly - if it's raining, have a cozy scarf, chic flat boots, and an envy-inducing stylish coat. You'll be warm and fashionable!

6. Being comfortable is crucial.

So much of looking good is feeling good. Ensure you are radiant at every party you attend by wearing clothing and footwear that is comfortable, appropriate, and well-tailored. Not only will you look great throughout the evening, but you will be able to focus all your attention on having a blast.

7. Complete your look with hair and makeup.

Smooth tresses and appropriate makeup are a must when dressing up for a holiday party. The best part? Have fun with it! Treat yourself to an up-do, add a sultry red lip, or go for that smoky eye you have been dying to try. Either way, do not underestimate the power of beautifully done hair and makeup.

Dressing up for a holiday party and truly looking fabulous is well within your reach. Just add a bright smile, a great attitude, appropriate style - and you will be fierce and fashionable for every event this season.  (FREEMAN)
