HOLIDAY FASHION: 5 TRENDS TO ADOPT
If there's one time of year you can wear sequins, it's the holiday season. From Christmas events to New Years Eve parties, sequins are the perfect way to steal the spotlight wherever you go. At Winter 2016/17 Fashion Week, models at Nina Ricci took the runway wearing Christmas tree green sequin gowns with deep V necklines. For a more relaxed look, design house Valentino paired a grey turtle neck underneath a rose gold sequin dress. Whether you're having a chill night with the family or hitting the town with your friends, a sequin gown can be dressed up – or down – to suit your lifestyle!
This season, jewel tones are trendier than ever. We've already showed you how to pull off a jewel toned eye shadow look and now, we're encouraging you to add a sapphire blue, amethyst purple or emerald green dress to your holiday wardrobe. Fashion design house Chloe showed a burgundy sheer long-sleeve gown that was both romantic and dreamy – the perfect duo for your next holiday party! Pair it with a bold lipstick and you'll have all eyes on you!
Looking for a comfortable way to look glam this holiday season? Look no further. Velvet has quickly become one of fall/winter's hottest fabrics, spotted on runways at Givenchy and Valentino. The trend comes in the form of dresses, pants, tops and even shoes – so there's no excuses not to try it out this winter!
Surprisingly enough, pastel and candy hues have made their way into holiday wardrobes and winter runways. Cotton candy shades of blue and pink were spotted at Valentino in a crinoline dress that's both girly and totally holiday-worthy. Pair it with soft makeup and a light pink lip for the ultimate feminine look.
Sensual, feminine and elegant, satin is the material of choice when it comes to dressing for a special occasion. Rochas had models take the runway in black satin gowns with matching thin, satin scarves around their necks. But if you're looking for something a little more daring, try a satin slip dress or jumpsuit for your next event.
