Well, favorite readers, Thanksgiving is over and even my leftovers are finished! Hope yours are too, because Christmas cookies are about to make an appearance and the fudge, prime rib, goose and cakes are right behind! So how do we get through the Christmas party season stylishly but with some degree of comfort? The answer is one hyper-trendy but totally stylish word-LEGGINGS!
Yes, I know. You thought leggings were gone, never to return. But I gotta tell ya, leggings are very much "in" now and they are everywhere! The difference between then and now? The old style had you wearing black leggings with a patterned sweater. On trend now? Patterned leggings with a solid sweater or tunic. And these patterns are IDEAL for holiday parties, because they are being shown in metallics, animal prints and bold color combos sure to make you feel, and look, festive!
Leggings go perfectly with today's ankle boots but for fun, try them with your over-the-knee boots! Keep the sweater simple and go for the gusto of big hoops or statement earrings. Looking fab AND wearing an elasticized waist? It doesn't get any more comfortable or fun! So wow your party pals with your great outfit, all the while knowing that you have "room" to indulge! And remember......"trend is today, but style is forever"!!!!
There are a few gifts that I like to give every year because they truly evoke the holiday spirit and I wish someone would give them to me. I am referring, of course, to Chanel bags. (No, not really, you incredulous looking skeptic)-although I do wish I was on that someone's gift list. I am really referring to the gift of color.
Most women don't realize that the cold, dry weather outside requires a change of makeup inside. Your skin is drier and so richer serums and moisturizers are needed. I also always go to a creamier foundation or tinted moisturizer and creme blush instead of powder. But do I keep this precious nugget of info to myself? I do not! I share it with you, my dear readers, because this is an easy gift to give and a thrill to receive. I like to get Sephora gift cards and Saks and Nordstrom certificates . I wrap them onto wine bottles or cosmetics cases, slide them into cross bodies and wedge them into the cover of a book.
Make sure you comment about "warming up your Christmas" or "putting the roses back in your cheeks" and you've got a fun and useful gift for several friends-preferably ones who don't know each other! Oh - and save one for me , because "trend" may be today, but "style" is forever!!!!
