Let Your Wardrobe Shimmer for the Holidays

We recently wrote an article for  HER magazine, by the Burlington Post.  The article is about adding festive pieces to your wardrobe for the Holiday season.  We all have parties and family gatherings to go to, and dressing with Holiday cheer is a must.  Check out our suggestions below:

Let Your Wardrobe Shimmer this Holiday Season

By: Christine MacDonald and Julie D’Uva of Seven Dollar Pants Blog

To prepare for the holiday season, and more importantly, holiday parties, we are adding a few extra pieces to our wardrobe to show off our festive spirit. Here are five trends to boost your holiday cheer.

A big trend on the fall runways for 2011 was velvet and there is no better time to wear it than the holiday season. The rich, warming fabric offers a luxurious look and would be great for a cocktail party.  Try a velvet dress in jewel tones such as ruby or emerald, or spice up your skinny jeans with a black velvet blazer.

Style your little black dress with a fun pair of tights. Colour your legs with purple, blue and red, or be bold with patterned stockings in argyle, plaid, or polka dot.  The ultra feminine look can be achieved with a lovely pair of lace tights – try white lace with a grey or camel colour dress.

Leather & Lace
Nothing says glam quite like the combination of leather and lace.  For a bold party outfit –   wear black leather pants, a leather skirt, or faux leather tights paired with a feminine lace top in cream or black.

Sequins happen to be a personal favorite of ours and December is the perfect time of year to wear them.  Add some shine to your day by wearing a lightly sequined sweater or change your leather bag to a sequined tote.  For an evening party, try a sequin bolero or cropped blazer – but stick to black for this one.

The chilly weather has set in and you probably already have your outerwear ready for the snow, but now is the perfect time to head out in search of the deals for fashionable outerwear. Fur and friendly faux fur are everywhere in stores, not to mention in the hottest print of the season – leopard!  Or show off your festive cheer with a bright red or white overcoat.  Either way, say no to boring black this season.

Happy Shopping! JD & CM
