Holiday Style: Defining Modern Festive-Reindeer Sweaters Need Not Apply!
The last week of Housewife Bliss and friends ‘Holiday Workshop’ is upon us! What a wonderful series it has been and I am positive I am not the only one who has learned so much from all the talented bloggers that Mrs. Bliss had the insight to gather together! Don’t forget to check out all the fabulous suggestions, tips and inspiration these super ladies are sharing with us today, all the links are at the bottom of the post!
The gorgeous colors that evoke the holiday spirit are all around but that doesn’t mean that we have to don them all at once to look ‘festive’. Choose a color that symbolizes the holiday at hand and that suits your style, personality and complexion. Work with that one major color for a monochromatic look or if you prefer add touches of another holiday infused shade to compliment without looking garish or overdone.
The absolute simplest way to do festive is with a strategically placed accessory! The key here is to make sure your piece says more chic than kitsch and keep your own personal flair in mind. I have come across the most darling little enamel pumpkin pins with crystal eyes, jewel-toned berets that evoke the spirit of Noel, and adorable Star of David diamond clustered necklaces. Festive accessories don’t have to be festooned with symbols of the holidays to be appropriate so think outside the box when choosing an item. Playing up a color that captures the holiday spirit works just as well (see above!). The selection is out there for anyone who is on the hunt for just the right touch of dash.
