The Top 5 Fashion Must-Haves This Holiday Season!

The holiday season is hectic enough without having to worry about what to wear. Here are five must-have fashion staples that will help you sail through the season in style!

#1 Lady in red. Pack up your LBD! This season, smart girls sizzle in red. And, since many holiday get-togethers leave little time after work for a quick change, some of the best options easily transition from day to night. Add heels and some fire engine red lipstick and you are ready to paint the town… well, red!

Holiday Must-Have #1: A day-to-night red dress

 

#2 Sparkle. Don’t save all of your sparkle for the Christmas tree! Inspired by the luminous Lupita Nyong’o on the cover of December’s Glamour magazine, every gal will dazzle with a pair of stunning rhinestone or crystal drop earrings. Unlike some of the massive chandelier earrings from previous seasons, a long, narrow silhouette says 2014!

#3 Pump it up. This year, shoe designers are taking style to new heights!  I personally love pointy toed pumps with high, High, HIGH heels!  Heels make legs look longer, improve your carriage, and even make you look thinner. Just don’t forget to practice if you don’t often wear heels. There’s nothing sexy about a night spent in the ER due to a sprained ankle.

Holiday Must-Have #2: Black closed toe pumps

 

#4 Bag it. No ensemble is complete without a fabulous bag. Some of the best this year channel the Hermès Kelly bag vibe. The shape, the ladylike handle, the mock croc… these bags are perfect with everything from a business suit, to skinny jeans and an oversized sweater.

#5 Time out. Finally, the hectic season taxes even the most organized among us. Stay on track and on time with a stunning watch. The classic leather banded watch gets an update this season with some beautiful detailing. (Infinitely classier than whipping out your phone to check the time!)
