Wondering what the fashion forecast is for the festive season….anything that shimmers.  In other words….a whole lot of jingle!

Party people, get ready to glisten in a stunning metallic skirt.  Are you willing to think outside the box? Then think about pairing a metallic skirt with an oversized sweater or a sweatshirt.  And “oh what fun” it is to add a pair of strappy heels or booties!  

Gold lame’….it’s back!  So here’s what I’m thinking….if it was good enough for Elvis, then it’s good enough for the rest of us!  Right? Loeffler Randall’s bow heels in gold lame say one thing to me….“Ready or not, holidays…here I come!”  And don’t you think Neiman’s gold lame cocktail dress by Halston has Studio 54 written all over it!  

What sparkles and goes with anything from jeans to sweat?  That would be sequins…of course! We love how Anthropologie features a sequined skirt two ways…with a lacey top and with a turtleneck sweater.  To add a little jingle to a casual holiday ensemble….a sequined blazer or blouse paired with jeans will definitely give you a dashing look!

When it comes to shimmering Christmas hues….red and green are at the top of my list.  If you want to ring some sleigh bells, think about wearing a sequined skirt with a red sweater.  For a holiday ladies luncheon, red heels and a shimmering green pleated skirt will add a little “ho, ho, ho” to your party style!  

If you’re headed to an elegant black-tie gala or cocktail party during the holidays, just know, you will be the shining star in a jumpsuit.  We’re loving a few sparkly black ones from Dillard’s on our Pinterest board. And their silver metallic jumpsuit with cape sleeves by Eliza J. looks fabulous coming and going!  Jingle all the way!  

I typically do not style dogs but would be happy to do so if asked!  Speaking of “making spirits bright”….I have to admit, I’m smitten with two pups wrapped in gold tinsel.  Just add a bow or a reindeer headband and your babies will shine in the family holiday photo!  

From shimmery frocks to everyday gold tinsel….one way or another, be sure to add a little “jingle” to your holiday attire!
