Well, y'all...I guess I probably should have titled this blog post "What I'll be Wearing for Holiday 2021 Parties"...since Holiday parties this year definitely aren't going to happen.
Oh well...c'est la vie.
However, just because you'll be stuck at home this year due to Covid doesn't mean that you can't still look FABULOUS, whether you are rocking a #livingroomchic look just for yourself, OR you have a Zoom Happy Hour with friends to celebrate the season! Either way, here are a few of my favorite things this holiday season (and, since no one is going to see them this year, they can do double duty for 2021!).
Holiday 2020 (and 2021...Hopefully) Looks that Slay
- Faux Leather
From masks to tops to pants, sequins are IN this season! Just make sure that you find an item that has a soft lining...nothing worse than sequins scratching your skin!
Search "sequins" at thecuratedcloset.net for some seriously fierce looks, including everything from sequin face masks to sequin-decorated hoodies! Some of my favorites are below:
French connection sequin top, #7479
Nanette Lepore sequin dress, #8302
What do you pair with a fantastic, smokey, glittery eye? Why, a matte red lip, of course!
Make sure you find what red best suits your skin tone (for me, it's a deep red with blue undertones), and then find a long-lasting lipstick in that magical shade. Pro tip: After applying, blot lips with a tissue repeatedly, then re-apply and do the same one or two more times to create a stain that lasts for hours!
Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick--my perfect shade is "Own Your Empire"
My ideal holiday makeup look!!!
For a fierce holiday look, you need the fiercest shoes! For me, that always includes either over-the-knee stiletto boots, or platform heels! Some great platform heel choices are available on Amazon, like the pair below by DREAM PAIRS:
I'm absolutely obsessed with these gorgeous boots from Chinese Laundry--they are gorgeous, super high while still being pretty comfy, and they ACTUALLY. STAY. UP...my OTK boot-wearing ladies know what I'm talking about! Available in two colors from chineselaundry.com--black and burgundy--they are priced affordably enough to get both colors!
I have these exact boots and they go with every look! I hope to get the burgundy soon too!
Wondering what jewelry to pair your incredible look with? See my earlier blog post, "Accessorize Me"!
There you have it, my lovelies! My picks for a fierce, feminine, and sexy look this holiday season. Whether you rock your fabulousness in your living room or over Zoom, I hope you have a glorious holiday.
In two weeks, I'll be sharing "A Very TCC Holiday" with the TCC team reflecting on their favorite Christmas memories and traditions. Until then, stay safe, stay sane, and stay fabulous!
