Your shoulders hurt from over-filled bags, you are stressed because
your luggage has gone to Dallas, Texas and you are in Chicago, and your
Aunt Mildred is relentlessly chasing you around with a picture of an
“eligible” bachelor. As if dealing with holiday, family drama isn’t
enough. One thing you don’t need to worry about is your wardrobe.
Just because you are on a break from work for a bit, doesn’t mean it’s time to break out the sweats and college hoodies.
This holiday season is all about setting the tone for your year! Don’t
be afraid of mixing clothing genres. Explore the casual realm with a
splash of business professional. Start with sporty and add some glam.
Genre hybrids are something that you can create all on your own! No one else will be wearing what you have on, because you made it up! This liberating breed allows the freedom of imagination. With a few key items, the possibilities are endless.
A sure way to feel great about yourself is accentuating the areas of
your body that you love. Smile and eyes are a natural element that
everyone has — rev them up with some runway makeup! Sporting the urban
chic look? Pair it with some fake eyelashes and bright eye shadow.
Making a bold statement with your eyes pulls drama to your look and
creates an element that will stop people in their tracks. Being
creative with your natural canvas can generate glances of appreciation,
gorgeous new makeup trends, and lots of fun!
Feeling a bit frazzled and out of time to run to the salon? Not a problem! Hats are no longer reserved for bad hair days
or hideous dye jobs. You can add a hint of boyish sophistication with a
cabbie hat. This hat can be your most versatile piece this season.
Throw it on with jeans and boots or cap off your party dress and curly
locks with an unexpected twist. Read more here…
