Fashion trends for the 2019 holiday season focus on lush textures, elaborate detailing, and sequins. You’ll look amazing at any of the New Year parties you attend in a dress that captivatingly reveals your sassy personality. Don’t be shy! This year’s holiday party attire is all about striking an elegant balance between glitter and bling.
Popular Holiday Trends
Sparkle and shine: A pleated skirt with a satin sheen will shimmer with possibilities. Celebrate New Year’s Eve in a chiffon dress sequin detail or a sequined bodice. And there is a good reason for the comeback of metallic fabrics. Metallic dresses are form-fitting and sexy.
Colour palette: Go bold with deep and bright jewel tones. Give your little black dress a punch of colour with bright red shoes and a matching handbag.
Hem lengths: From short to long, this holiday season hems are highlighted by fringes, feather trim, or laser cut detail.
Feathers, fringes, and tassels: Look for feathers, fringes, and tassels on clutch purses, tops, leather jackets, and dress sleeves. Any one of these decorative touches will add flair and visual interest to what you are wearing.
Holiday Fabric Favourites
Satin is an alluring holiday fabric. It has a smooth surface and is typically made from silk, nylon, or polyester fibers. Satin’s shiny finish is perfect for bringing in the New Year. For an eye-catching combination that can’t be ignored, pair a satin bodysuit paired with a leather skirt.
A pile fabric with a smooth nap, velvet can be woven from almost any type of fiber including silk, cotton, and synthetic yarns. Velvet is the ideal material for a holiday party because it’s soft to the touch and looks sophisticated and elegant. While velvet dresses, pants, and jackets are great holiday favourites, don’t forget that velvet shoes can be the perfect accessory for that LBD.
Chiffon is a lightweight material that suits pretty much any type of outfit in which to bring in the New Year. From jumpsuits to dresses to skirts to blouses, chiffon has a soft, flowing appearance that is delicate yet versatile.
Handbags: The choices are endless for bags and purses. Select a clutch that is neutral when you’re wearing a metallic dress with a plunging neckline. If the outfit is a solid colour or softly patterned, add more texture with a bag that has sequins or feathers.
Shoes: For some of us our closets are missing dressier shoes. You can’t go wrong with classic styled mid-to-high heeled sandals. How about ankle booties with a stiletto heel?
Suede or leather over-the-knee boots in burgundy or dark green will definitely inspire you to dance the night away.
Jewelry: Glam up your outfit with jewelry that will give it a romantic and feminine flair. Simple pieces such as a pendant, thin chains, or chunky bracelet go well with metallic and satin holiday outfits. Chandelier earrings, large hoops, or delicate drop earrings are a great place to start when layering bold and sparkly pieces such as stacking bracelets and rings.
