Even though 2020 holidays may be virtual, looking good can help make the holidays brighter! Fashion during the holidays is all about dressing to impress. It can be challenging to keep up – ‘tis the season to be busy, after all. But fret not, we have the perfect tips on curating a seasonal wardrobe as versatile as your schedule.
Think comfortable, structured clothing staples like A-line dresses or well-fitting trousers. Never tight or baggy, classic silhouette pieces compliment every body type and never go out of style. It’s a timeless fit and look, which aligns with the tradition-oriented spirit of the holiday season.
Solid Colors or Simple Prints
Big, bold prints are a fun way to showcase personal style. But, the holidays are not necessarily an appropriate time to spotlight individuality. In this time of togetherness (even if virtual togetherness), consider a more neutral approach to a holiday wardrobe – be remembered for convivial contributions to conversations rather than an overbearing outfit.
Sweater + Jeans
If a more relaxed atmosphere is anticipated, a good sweater-and-jeans combination never fails. Start with a good pair of dark-wash jeans – no holes or tears. For a touch of feminine flair, go with a cowl neck sweater. Looking to lean more masculine? An argyle print sweater over a collared shirt gets our vote every time.
Although athleisure is on-trend at the moment, save the sneakers for another time. Athletic footwear can read as if the wearer is truly running from one event to another. Avoid having relatives feel like a pit stop; be present by choosing a shoe style like loafers or flats to maintain a polished look from head to toe.
Armed with these tips, you’ll be prepared for any and every situation the holidays throw your way. Need a couple items from our list? Check out a Goodwill location near you to shop holiday essentials.
