CELEB STYLE: Holiday Season Inspiration
Audrey Masitsa, 9 years ago 0 3 min read 176
Christmas is next week and the week after that we will be ringing in the New Year. This time of year is usually characterized by numerous parties such as office Christmas parties, wedding parties, not to mention New Year’s Eve parties. As much as you would enjoy attending one party after another (I mean, you spent the whole year working so hard, you definitely need a break), style-wise this time of year could be a nightmare. Even though this year attending any parties is the last thing on my mind (maternity woes!), I thought I would share some of the celebrity looks that I have seen lately that I think would be suitable for all the parties during this holiday season.
Stripes have been a major trend this year. I saw Lupita Nyong’o in this striped black and white gown and I fell in love with the style. This gown has two of my favorite elements put together. It is striped and is black and white, two of my favorite trends of 2013. When worn correctly, stripes will flatter any body type. Whether vertical, horizontal or diagonal, you can wear stripes to flatter your curves and look absolutely chic this holiday season.
Pants and Sheer Top
If dresses are not your thing, or you want to change up your style, you can look extremely chic in a pants and top combo. Miley Cyrus finally got it right in my books in this outfit. She has been missing the mark for a while what with her attempts at changing her image. But for once I actually liked her red carpet choice. Your regular office pants especially the wide leg variety or those with pockets will look festive enough for holiday parties when paired with cute blouses preferably lace or sheer. Add pumps, flashy jewellery, a red lip and clutch bag and you are bound to turn heads at the next party you attend.
Contrary to popular belief, jumpsuits can look flattering on just about anyone. All you have to do is make sure that you choose a flattering style like this white one worn by Naya Riviera of Glee. I get a little bugged when I see ladies wearing jumpsuits made of very flimsy fabric roaming around the streets of Nairobi. Half the time, the fit is inadequate and you end up looking like you’re trying too hard. Be adventurous and choose colors and styles that are flattering and not just those that are readily available in the market.
The little black dress is a classic choice for a day and night out. Whether your wardrobe contains one or two or more little black dresses, be adventurous with your accessories and make-up. Statement jewellery, bold lipstick, a smokey eye and a chic pair of heels or flats will transform your ordinary little black dress into a party outfit. Do not restrict yourself to blacks. You can wear nudes, reds, whites or whichever is your current favorite color.

One of the things I promised myself I would do, ever since this pandemic started and life slowed down, is that I would dress up every single day. Granted, I had nowhere to go, but putting on an outfit, no matter how simple, uplifted my…
