Let’s take a look at some important factors to consider when putting together your fashion looks this Christmas season.
Opt for Breathable Clothing
Getting the right fabric for your choice of fashion garment is very important when Christmas comes around.
Remember, you are going to be closely mixing with family, friends and work colleagues. The last thing you want is for your body to be leaking unpleasant odours.
The other factors to consider is to make sure your choice of clothing is comfortable. This applies to your choice of footwear.
- Choose fabrics that are breathable. This will allow your body to breathe. It stops your body from sweating
- Choose clothing colours that blend in with your complexion. If you are faired skinned look for darker tones. For darker complexations, opt for light shade clothing
- Always consider the occasion and dress age appropriately. Fashion should always bring out the best in your look. Your choice of clothing says a lot about the wearer. As the saying goes “dress your age” and always feel comfortable in your choice of clothing.
Get Your Foundation Right
No, we are not taking make up here. We are talking about getting the basics right from when you start to create your favourite fashion look.
Start with your choice of underwear. Is it comfortable? It’s not going to be on show; however, it should make you feel sexy and not show any unwanted VPL (visible panty lines) bulging out through your choice of outfit.
Then think about layering. Do you have a jacket, coat or top that can be matched easily with your favourite outfit that can be removed and still not spoil your overall look?
Remember Christmas isn’t like any other time of year. Temperatures in the environment you are in will vary.
Whether you are indoors or outdoors, you want clothing that can adapt to your surroundings without affecting your overall fashion look.
Think Correct Footwear
Then we come to footwear. Heeled sandals or open toe shoes can look sexy and lift any outfit look.
However, if there is snow or ice on the ground it’s important to keep your tootsies protected at all times.
This can also help you avert falling on your bum in slippery weather. Always choose the right footwear for the occasion while considering the weather outside.
Take Styling Inspiration from Trusted Influencers
This also applies to taking fashion inspiration from well-known celebrities of your age. It’s always refreshing to see women of different ages sporting their own unique sense of style which is not dictated by age or size.
Social media is a great way to catch up on the latest fashion trends. Respected influencers always have good tips on how to style and dress the latest fashion trends.
Also, you have the likes of celebrities of different ages who show off their own fashion tastes. The key thing to remember when putting together any fashion look anytime of the year is this.
Make sure it’s a look that suits you and your body shape. Just because fashion clothing looks good on others, doesn’t mean it’s right for you.
This is why it’s called “Fashion Inspiration.” You don’t have to exactly copy the fashion look of your favourite celebrity or influencer. Just take inspiration from their look and apply bits of it to yours.
