The holiday season is the perfect time to release your inner fashionista! You get to explore new styles and trends without feeling gaudy or like you're going overboard. Holiday dress is all about sparkles, color, accessories, flair, and of course, standing out!
Any hue in a jeweled tone is a fabulous alternative to the expected red or green. I chose to flaunt this rich pink color, and although pink is not your typical Christmas color, it is extremely appropriate and serves as a fun & fresh twist to any holiday look. Navy tights are a fantastic substitute for black tights and add a certain sophistication without being overpowering.
Everyone wants to look glamorous around the holidays - that's what jewelry is for! If there's any time to layer on the bangles or overload on sparkle, it's now! I went pretty tame with the look you see here but don't worry, my bling will be shining in future posts! You can count on that.
