December Stylist Picks

festive beauty look

The holiday season is around the corner, and I am sure that most of you have already picked your chic and extravagant Christmas party outfits. The holiday party season is the source of some serious wardrobe woes, but we have plenty of tips to help you inject your look with some festive spirit! I have only one thing in mind: a calendar full of festivities, and a chock full of seasonal sartorial conundrums to go with it.

Dec Picks

This festive season is all about standing out — and more than a little bit of sparkle.

Party glam

Don't be afraid to make a statement with your jewellery, just try to keep the rest of your look simple.

Getting a look together for a holiday party can be tricky, but we've come up with a handy list of eight tips that we're sure will help you out. Our number one suggestion? HAVE FUN! This festive season is all about standing out — and more than a little bit of sparkle, so forget about being shy until after New Year. In case if you’re still looking for something original and you want to stand out from the crowd, may I suggest something from our December picks. I loved the modern and clean cuts we chose this time and December picks are screaming for simplicity with the fresh and cool attitude.

What can I say, “Tis the season to sparkle”! There isn't a time of year when glitter is more appropriate than during the holidays. Incorporate a shimmering piece into your holiday look, whether a sequined skirt, a metallic blazer, or a cute, crystal-embellished pair of shoes. But be careful not to go overboard — try to limit this trend to one or two pieces per ensemble. You don't want to look like the Christmas tree, do you?


Think sequins and shine, whether it’s a dress, a shimmering scarf or a statement shoe

If there was ever a time to pile on an armful of bangles, wear a gigantic bib necklace, or pull out the cocktail ring that's the size of a doorknob, it's the holidays. Don't be afraid to make a statement with your jewellery, just try to keep the rest of your look simple.

Those who like to be bold with festive beauty look, rejoice the smokey eye, a bold red lip, or an intricate up-do! We all know that these looks are certainly not appropriate for every day, so try something more directional and daring when the holidays roll around.


Rejoice the smokey eye!

Apart from the festivities, bright beautiful Christmas bulbs and decor, December is also a month of gift-giving. I've always find it is fulfilling knowing that I can help unfortunate people in need and let us remember those less fortunate than ourselves, and help in whatever way we can. Appreciate and enjoy more of the things we gave thanks for yesterday.
