It’s that time of the year again for the best parties, tastiest (Christmas) recipes, the most beautiful gifts and last but not least for the most outstanding dresses. Thinking you have the whole month to figure it out how are you going to spend the last moments of the year. But the list is not made yet, the list that tells you what to wear, where to go and what you need to do to end your year in an unforgettable way.
Here are some tips that can help you with the most agitated and awaited time of the year:
Sport yourself and your wallet slim
With the New Year’s party around the corner this is the best month to start being motivated for that fit body. With 20 more days left you still have enough time to start your weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey, so you can entry the New Year with a big smile on your face knowing you are already going for that beach body. Besides that, think how good you are going to look/feel in that party dress you have in mind. It’s more about the attitude! This is the perfect time to spend your money on healthy choices.
Get the best of your outfit for this year parties
We hear it every season, but this time it’s actually true. Black is back and with the little black dress you can’t never go wrong if you don’t forget about the details. They are what makes the difference!
For the Christmas dinner lay the focus on the top part, choose for a high neck closed dress with a model on it or you can add your own details with some accessories. The blinker the better, said Mrs Prada when it came to the AW15 jewellery at Miu Miu. This is the season to throw it all on and shine, teaming door knocker earrings with heavy crystal neck candy.
For the old and new you can be more outrageous with your little black dress: sequins, feathers, décolletage – bring it on! The ultimate sidekick for your LBD is the leather (biker) jacket. While the icicle are still hanging on the trees, the jacket will make sure to give your LBD a warm and frayed edge look.
If you are more sophisticated, go for the velvet look. This season velvet is a big trend and I have to say I love it – the velvet. I love the way it looks, the way it flows on the body and the way it feels. For this season colour variations are going from black and white to red, orange, green and all pastel colours.
When in doubt, wear lingerie, very sexy lingerie
Green is one of the most striking trends for this winter in terms of lingerie. A colour that naturally matches with the month December. If you didn’t had the chance to put your hands on it, the lace bralette is that kind of present that would fit perfectly under your Christmas tree.
If you are not a green lover for lingerie, you can find in the Hunkemöller stores and on their website, the new Sylvie (Meis) limited edition collection in colours such as deep blue and vintage pink.
Test the trend: festive nude
You can’t avoid it: nude is in! Find you perfect shade with this trick: check the inside of your wrist. Is the colour of your veins bluish (like blue)? Than you have a cold (pink) undertone. Is it a green colour? Than your skin has a warm (yellow) undertone. Do you see both colours? Than you look good with every shade of nude.
Feel the Holiday (Christmas) spirit
Last year, in the second day of Christmas I went to see Lord of the Rings in Concert (first part: The Fellowship of the Ring) at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. It is really something unique as experience because you can watch the integral movie on a big screen and it’s brought to life by an orchestra and chorus of no less than 250 musicians. This year, on December 26 you can witness the second part of the movie: The Two Towers which has a more complex score then the first part because of the story it tells.
I hope this tips will help you to end your year happy, partying and with the right kind of drink in your hand. Let the countdown begin!
