Thanksgiving may not have officially arrived, but I think it’s safe to say the holiday shopping season has begun. In anticipation of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and shoppers everywhere are laying out their plan of attack.
What will you be shopping for this weekend? Or maybe I should ask WHO will you be shopping for this weekend? Do you have any fun holiday parties coming up?
Here are some top trends to consider this holiday season. You don’t have to go all out and buy a whole new outfit. Update your current wardrobe with one or two of these trends to look current and fabulous!
4 Holiday Trends for 2012
This is probably the easiest trend to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. Instead of wearing basic black shoes with your LBD, try spicing up your outfit with a metallic shoe instead. And don’t feel like your shoes have to match your bag. Like Stacy and Clinton always say, “It doesn’t have to match; it has to GO.”
Or, dress up your favorite jeans with a metallic clutch. It’s a simple, easy way to update what you already have hanging in your closet!
Shimmer is really making its appearance this season. I love a great shimmer top… totally dresses up your favorite pair of jeans. And don’t think that shimmer is only for nighttime. Feel free to inject some shimmer into your casual outfits too!
Red is hotter than ever this season. If you’re really daring, go for a red dress!
Personally, I’m a bit of a wallflower. My personal style takes a “less is more” approach. I’d more likely go for a single red piece to pop a neutral outfit. Then I’d add a punch of red in my makeup — either lipstick or nail polish.
Confession: I’ve ALWAYS wanted a pair of red boots like those.
4. Statement Pieces
If you’re still wearing that diminutive necklace, now is the time to give a statement necklace a try. Small jewelry really dates an outfit. Look how you can elevate a very simple outfit with a piece of statement jewelry.
I love how this bold sparkle bracelet pops this simple black dress.
