Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean you have to put away your cute festive outfits until next year. This article from Refinery29 inspired us to pull out our holiday pieces and take inventory of what we can still wear. Sparkles, glitter and bright colors are the perfect way to spice up the dull winter months, as long as you wear them correctly! See below for 5 ways to rock your holiday gear all year long.
We are obsessed with sparkles – but there’s a time and a place. Keep your nails festive all winter with a great sparkly nail color from the salon or if you’re feeling really crafty, make your own with help from Allure magazine.
Sequins can be appropriate for daytime (as long as it’s not your New Year’s Eve miniskirt). Throw a cardigan or blazer over your sequined shirt, invest in a pair of sequin flats or top off your look with a sequin scarf. Remember – a little sequin goes a long way.
That fun bib necklace and giant cocktail ring that you wore to all the holiday parties can still work. Just don’t wear them together (or with your sequins) – use sparingly and with toned down outfits.
Don’t shove your favorite holiday dress to the back of your closet until December. Make plans to wear it on a special occasion, whether it’s dinner and drinks with your girlfriends or a Valentine’s Day date with your husband. It’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed!
Red & Green
You can still wear your red and green pieces – just not together! Accessorize them with complementary colors. if you have a pair of green jeans, pair them with a black top. Your red pumps will look perfect with an LBD (little black dress, of course). You get the idea.
