In the following article, you’ll get all the tips, and suggestions you need but were too hesitant to take. This article will surely be your ultimate fashion guide this holiday season. From selecting the spookiest Halloween costume to slaying on Thanksgiving, giving yourself a unique look on Christmas, and welcoming the new year with great style… this article has all your problems sorted. Let’s get started!


Transitioning from Fall to Winter


As soon as the trees start to shed autumn leaves and the temperatures start dropping below 20 degrees, we know it’s officially the time when our wardrobe needs a transition. From getting pastel coats, to pretty knitted sweaters the transition is a really fun challenge where you need to put in all your fashion sense at once. While it is fun, you must choose some stylish pieces that can be styled in versatile ways while you are in your comfort zone. Thus, try experimenting with different looks for each occasion or even for everyday looks for a great change!


One thing we recommend you to go for is layering. There’s no debate that winters are all about layering the right staples e.g. if you’re wearing a light, long-sleeved, plain shirt, adding a cute cardigan with it will make your entire look instantly. Another example is if you’re off to a formal event and are wearing a collared, fitted shirt, opting for a tailored coat will make you look elegant whilst sticking to the dress code. Layering can also be helpful as while the temperature keeps fluctuating in winter, it’s never going to be too hot for you. You can always remove the sweaters, coat, or cardigan.


Not to forget, that styling isn’t just about wearing the right fits, there are other things you need to keep in mind. Accessories play a key role in how you look especially when you’re transitioning your wardrobe from one season to another. While you can make yourself look dressy and perfect for an occasion while wearing plain clothes, you can also wear something extra but complete the look with minimal studs or a necklace. Scarves… the most loved addition to one's outfit. No matter what your personality is, whether you like wearing neons, are a sucker fo printed staples, or are into rich, autumnal colors… a scarf can make you look incredible and you’ll feel warm at the same time. Opt for a good quality wool or cashmere scarf for your comfort as they aren’t harsh on the skin and act as good warmers too. Opt for earthy tones.


Footwear also had equal importance. In winter, you need to make sure to choose footwear that keeps your feet warm, and isn’t slippery but is stylish as well. Ankle boots, in colors black, skin, and shades of brown can be a great addition to your wardrobe and are a perfect pick for the season. They are available in various materials and colors so feel free to choose whatever suits your style best!


An autumn-themed color palette suits winter wardrobe the best. Especially earthy tones, or pastels. Go for colors like deep burgundy, mustard, olive green, and various shades of brown. These colors don’t just elevate your look but can also make you look like a vintage queen!

Halloween Costumes


Whether it’s about embodying a witchy vibe in the costume, opting for daunting make-up looks, or evoking the classic aesthetics that trend every single year, Halloween is the occasion that gives everyone a chance to showcase their artistic sense in their costumes. Let your imagination run wild, and unleash your creativity! How you style yourself on every occasion matters a lot whether you’re heading out for trick-or-treating with the kids or off to the costume party your best friend invited you to, make sure to put in your best while choosing the outfit.


Dressing up as a witch, or magician is something we see too often so why not embrace something new this year? You shouldn’t dress up just to look good, but also to resonate with a character or concept dear to you. With the cold breeze, and autumny vibe of the season, opting for a pumpkin-themed dress, or a pumpkin-inspired make-up look can be a really good option. It won’t just make you stand out but will also go with the season! If you’re planning to haunt people even in their dreams, we suggest you go through the web and look for a skull-inspired make-up look. You can dress up all black and leave people shaken by your makeup skills. If not these skull-inspired costumes are also available or can be DIYed.


Not impressed? Wanting to add a touch of whimsy to the outfit? Animal-themed outfits are surely for you then. From dressing up like a cute penguin to going for a furious lion outfit… if you feel confident about it, why not give it a try?


While you put so much effort into the outfit, take care of if your accessories go with your outfit. Pointed hats, classy earrings, wigs, and other props can make you and your outfit look much more fun, and interesting. Experiment as much as you want to before the occasion, so you’re the best dressed at the party this Halloween!

Thanksgiving Attire

Thanksgiving is probably the happiest occasion of the holiday season. Lots of laughter, being surrounded by loved ones, and good food. It is the time when one can’t help but count and show gratitude for what they have in life. While you have such a good time why not feel comfortable


while looking like a fashionista at the same time? Earthy and warm tones are the first preference when it comes to styling yourself for Thanksgiving and deciding the color choices. Because of the cozy and warm environment, colors like rich maroon, olive green, warm brown, and deep orange increase the beauty of this occasion by giving welcoming friendly vibes.


If you have a family gathering at your place, of course, you’ll be looking forward to styling yourself effortlessly and being comfortable. Sweaters are the perfect choice! They are the perfect relaxed fits, that are cozy and comfortable but still look elegant all the time. You can wear it with your flare pants or even jeggings to elevate the look. Go for a messy bun or loose curls to complete the look and leave everyone in awe. However, if you have a formal party to attend, you need to look polished and well-groomed. Dresses that fall in the same color palette but also are patterned can be an amazing choice. You can pair a mid-length dress with low-heeled footwear, or books to give yourself the comfort you need and look elegant.


Christmas Fashion

As we see Christmas arriving soon, most people are excited and have thought of ways they can style themselves. If you haven’t… there’s nothing to worry about!

it’s time to go shopping! Going for a short red or green dress, with stockings, and boots can make up a striking look! If not a dress you can always go for a sweater, boots, and jeans. To give yourself a more sophisticated look, opt for a scarf with the second look we suggested, or a few pretty accessories will do the job as well.


Christmas being a winter holiday makes it so much easier to style yourself. Sweaters with printed snowflakes, cardigans with the patterns of Christmas trees, lined stockings… there is so much you can choose from! Opting for intricate patterns, the classic colors that give a cozy yet Christmassy feeling are something you can not ignore.
