Christmas party season is around the corner. Time to prepare your Christmas wardrobe. Party clothes with minimal pieces but maximum glam in a different look put together for every party. At the same time, you'd want clothes that you can still wear long after the festive season.
What you need is a wardrobe that takes you from day to night and which can go from glamorous party girl to career woman easily. You want your clothes to be versatile. To play the chameleon according to your whim and fancy. Mix and match to suit the mood and occasion.
Start with the foundation of your wardrobe. Classic pieces that go with everything. That can be worn for most occasions. Basics in a neutral color that flatters you and goes with jewel tones, metallics as well as neutrals. The best color you could use as your foundation is black.
Black is a slimming color. Black goes with other neutrals as well as bright colors and metallics. That makes black the ideal base color for your wardrobe. You can get away with jewel tones without looking clownish by wearing one item in that bright color and everything else in black.
Start with the little black dress. Or rather, the collection of black dresses. For serious partying, you need at least three black dresses to last you through the festive season. One short dress that shows off your legs, one long dress that grazes your ankle and one mid-length dress that ends either a few finger's width above or below your knees.
Next, you need at least three black skirts. Again, you should get one that is short enough to show off your legs. Bear in mind, the shorter your skirt, the longer your legs look. Especially when you wear high heel shoes. You need a long black skirt too. Preferably one that grazes the ankle. Such a skirt would be wonderful for black tie events, formal parties or when you want to look exceptionally elegant. The third skirt should be either slightly above or below the knee.
These dresses and skirt form the backbone of your wardrobe. With these, you'd always have something to wear for every event. Now comes the fun part. silk tops. This is after all a party wardrobe. You want outfits that make you look your most beautiful. Silk is about as flattering as a fabric as you can find. It flows sensuously over your body. Not only does it feel divine against your skin, it makes you look feminine. You want a collection of silk tops that flatter you. Tops you would love. Go by your first impression. At first glance, pick the ones that catch your eye. These are the ones you instinctively like and trust your instincts to pick what you'd look best in. Don't worry about the tops being to flamboyant, too colorful or too revealing. This is the Christmas season, so let go and celebrate. You'll pair these tops with your black skirts so you can get away with jewel tones as your black skirt would lend the outfit the air of elegance you need.
Finally, get a collection of accessories. Earrings, necklaces, belts, scarves... the works. Get a decent collection of high heel shoes and sandals. They make a world of difference in the way you walk. Plus they make your legs look miles longer. Mix and match your tops and skirts for countless new looks. Wear your outfits differently by playing around with the accessories. Wear your black dresses with different accessories and different makeup for each party. Vary your hairstyle with every party you attend. In this way, you can confidently charge into the party season and always have a new look for each party you attend.
