5 Popular Pieces Of Wintery Christmas Fashion

5 Popular Pieces of Wintery Christmas Fashion
It’s not Christmas…..just yet. However, it won’t be long until it arrives and with it the Christmas party season.
So, what should you wear to look stylish and attractive at your festive do? We take a look at some of the most popular trends for the season ahead.
White
This is a minimalist-friendly alternative to the LBD. The Little White Dress (LWD) is bold and striking. When wearing white, you don’t have to worry about blending into the background.
You might think it best to avoid white when going to parties where glasses of red wine may cause a disaster. However, that’s not a fabulous way of thinking. A white dress, like snow and ice, is wintery. It implies a well-heeled lifestyle with unlimited dry-cleaning budgets and money to afford cabs that can help you avoid the muckiness you feel when using public transport.
Animal Print
The days of the LBD is over. It’s no longer the party fall-back. High-end retailers report that people aren’t buying black because more people are shopping online and black looks flat on the web. That theory also holds when you put black on people. People look a little beta-level when you post pictures of them wearing black.
The best images are those with people wearing colours and prints. You get a Jackson-Pollock happy type explosion. Look at photos from Coachella for retina-damaging looks. You can compromise by getting a winter-friendly animal print. You can pick up a bold animal print dress or sweatshirt. Then you can work a room and a selfie.
A Quality Coat
There’s no pressure, however, it’s important to remember that your coat isn’t something you can simply sling on your hosts’ bed when you arrive at your destination. A coat is a statement in itself. This season, there are some options that can ensure your coat passes muster.
The first is leopard print. Think of Rita Tushingham from a Taste of Honey and 60s kitchen sink drama heroines. You can also choose the puffa jacket. It a bit 90s and kind of sporty, and very warm. Think of the Michelin Man, a very unlikely style icon.
Hair
As long as you’ve got big hair, you can really wear anything this season. Forget about having bouncy waves, like Kate Middleton. Follow this tip which is based on viewing too many episodes of MIC. In one episode, Binky went on a casual date and got a blow-dry.
This is done by other style luminaries including Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn. They dress down or wear edgy pieces with movie star “done” hair. It’s a mix and match styles. For the full look, you need a long ‘do, cascading over one shoulder with the side parted. Delevingne is known to wear her hair with a tiger onesie which is completely optional.
Cut-Outs Are a Power Play
Fashion does not have time to be practical. There are always new body parts to obsess over. The hi-riff, which is the sliver of flesh right beneath the bust has been the fashion focus since this summer when the catwalk was filled with crop tops.
This is one area where you have to be brave. There will be Pilates-honed partiers continuing to expose their body parts this season. Karlie Koss and Nicole Richie are already there. In order to adapt this trend and make it wearable for people in wintery climates, you can pair a fluffy cropped knit with a high-waisted skirt.
