Sequins: Try anything with sequins but I love me a sequin top and jeans. Tip: For a little layering affect get a slouchy top and leave little black or white tank peeking out from underneath.
Go Monochromatic: Pick a color (I prefer black, white or gray) and wear it from head to toe. Not only is it super easy to throw together but it also has a slimming effect AND a expensive feel.
Add a Statement Necklace: This is the easiest and fool proof way to dress up any outfit. Wear your biggest boldest necklace over a turtleneck, with a button down or over simple white tee. Tip: Look for necklaces with mixture of bold and basic colors. This will give you more wiggle room when styling a casual outfit.
With the holiday spending spree over, it’s not hard to wonder which is gonna drop faster: the New Year’s Eve ball or your credit score! So if you’re like me and spent a ton on gifts, check out these three tricks to look a million at midnight and ring in the New Year on the cheap:
Sparkles and glitter are SO girly and festive. You can incorporate it into your outfit with shoes, skirts or accessories. Tip: buy an inexpensive solid colored skirt and lightly spray glitter all over it (see my skirt and spray selection below)
Go all out with hair and makeup. If you normally wear your hair pin straight, pull out your curling iron and vice versa. The idea is to go for a striking change; the same goes for makeup…if you’re a basic lipgloss/mascara girl, pullout your eyeliner and line up a cat eye with some false eye lashes.
Add a little red. Sure, it’s a bit of a cliche color around the holidays. But, it’s actually the “it” color this season (red demands attention and exudes sexiness). Try a sexy red dress and simple red heels or throw on a scarf or lipstick. Tip: if wearing red from head to toe tone it down elsewhere.
