Style Tips

It’s the most magical time of the year!

While it’s time to have fun, the pressures of finding various outfits for all those parties can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, you can easily pull together a Holiday look right from your very own closet in just 5 steps.

Here are 5 easy steps to follow to create the perfect last-minute Holiday outfit!

Step 1: Grab something plaid

Plaid is a great way to add some festive vibes to your outfits. It’s pretty easy since almost everyone has a plaid shirt or skirt in their closet this season. While red or green plaid is the obvious choice, really any colour or style of plaid will still give that Holiday vibe you desire. If you opt for the shirt, tie a piece of black ribbon in a bow at the collar to give it a dressier and unique feel.

Step 2: Add black

If you go with the plaid skirt then you’ll want to keep the rest of your look sleek and simple, and black is the new word for sleek. It looks chic and can also easily look formal depending on what you pair it with. If you chose the plaid top then pair it with a black skirt. After all, everyone should have a black top and black skirt in their closet.

Step 3: Wear Holiday tights

Next, add your favourite Holiday tights! These OTK Glitter Stripe Tights add a fresh flair to your outfit and will leave you feeling festive in no time. They're unique, cool and a great conversation piece. Now that’s what I call a “multifunctional” pair of tights!

Step 4: Wrap yourself in a blanket scarf

Fight the cold with a cute scarf to add a little something extra to your outfit. Wear it like a shawl over your shoulders for a cardigan-like look. It’s cozy and if you get too hot, you can drop it and your outfit will still look adorable. You never know what the temperature will be like at the party, especially if there are a lot of people, so layering is a great way to be prepared for hot or cold.

Step 5: Finish with cute heels

While most people wear pumps at this time of year, a bootie works just as well, as long as it has a heel to dress it up. It’s warmer, sturdier, and still adds height to your outfit. What more could you possibly ask for?
