Holiday Outfits Part 3 of 3: Friends & Family

December 2, 2010

It is not always easy to get motivated to work your style, especially when amongst close friends and family.  These are the people who know you better than yourself so why bother? When you are feeling especially unmotivated, remember that when you look great, you will feel great.

Without further ado, here is the final installment of holiday outfits 2010.

Character vs. Style

You could play into the expected role this year – the mid-life-crisis Mom, the Cougar, the Scrapbooking Grandma, the Tomboy or the Mama’s Boy.  Or you can reinvent yourself as someone who looks put together.

Try these ideas for a fresh take on dressing up a casual outfit for the holidays, including Plus, Petite & Men.

You can be comfortable and stylish at the same time.  Dark jeans will convey a dressier style and don’t be shy with the accessories!

Holiday Outfits Part 2 of 3: Work Day to Work Party

December 1, 2010

There’s Smart Casual and now we declare Smart Holiday – the outfit that can transition from work to party as is or with a simple change.  If your work party is a casual affair, remember that professionalism rules.

AVOID FORGETTABLE AND TOO MEMORABLE

If you want to stand out, the standard fare won’t do, nor will going overboard at work to look more festive for the party.  Consider the following:

  • Boring. So you forgot about the party when you were getting dressed.  Make time to shop over the lunch hour and look for a sparkly necklace, top or shoe that will help you feel as festive as you will surely feel.
  • Dated. “Aww, cuuute” does not command respect.  Reserve these mementos for family affairs and opt for accessories that elevate your presence.
  • Tired. A nothing-special matchy-match outfit does not belong at the office or at the holiday party.  A more interesting outfit will help you differentiate yourself from your peers while networking up the chain of command.
  • Club-Bound. If you work in the entertainment industry, this *might* be appropriate office attire.  Then again, it will still look better in a celebrity-wanna-be-filled club on a reality TV show.  Your outfit should go from work to party without screaming I’M GOING TO A PARTY!
  • Goofy. At work, the Class Clown is great for culture but will not get as much respect when it comes to raises and promotions.  Leave the costumes in the closet until Halloween.

And now, outfit ideas that will ensure you’re ready for the big night, after a productive day.

Consider these hard working looks for regular, Plus, Petite and men from left to right:

A mix of every day professional and evening can be exceedingly productive when done well.
