Hope December is being good to you – smile! Today is all about festive season clothing. Do you normally stick to pretty dresses during the festive season or are you also open to wearing festive co-ordinates?
Especially for those of you travelling during this period, wearing festive co-ordinates can end up being a real life saver. Giving you many more different looks than a dress would.
Keep on reading to find out more about my 5 simple tips for how to make the most of your festive wardrobe.
How to Make the Most of Your Festive Wardrobe
Guess I already gave this tip away right in the introduction to this post. The important thing to remember with co-ordinates is to mix-match them in all directions. Too often we buy a top with bottom together and then tend to “only” ever wear them as an ensemble.
2. Pimping up the old
Of course a new year calls for new festive looks, however instead of buying everything new search for just one new special piece like a top or skirt and then match it, with as many items you already own as possible.
3. Adding a scarf and playing with it.
Notice how in each of the pictures I am wearing the same scarf but wearing it differently. Scarves, especially if they have a certain size can be used as an accessory or transformed to becoming a major part of the outfit.
In the picture above it takes over from the top and the top “per-say” becomes a secondary piece in the whole outfit. Whist in the picture with a skirt the scarf is a mere accessory and the top itself is in the forefront.
4. The statement bag
No matter how expensive or not your outfit may be, a statement bag is simply the icing on the cake so to speak. A statement bag will make any outfit look expensive. PROVIDED – and this is important, especially now with the trend to buy vintage bags – provided the bag is in top notch condition and does not look worn.
You can wear the same outfit but simply match it with different shoes to give it a whole new look.
Imagine if I would team the outfit above with pink shoes to match the pink in the scarf, a pink headband and bag… Voila, to most others you meet this would then register as a totally new outfit!
