8 Christmas and New Year’s Eve-Ready Looks for 2020
With travel restrictions and a whole wad of safety protocols, the holidays are surely going to be different this time around. But even with a pandemic and this “new normal” that has set upon us, nothing can hinder us from finding ways to conjure the celebrations. With innovations such as fashionable face masks, online shopping, and Zoom meetings, the possibilities could be endless.
There’s no doubt that we’re mostly spending time indoors for the festive season. But even with this setting, you can still get things up and running by donning fun looks for you to stay holiday-ready. If you can’t celebrate with your loved ones, set it up in your own home, even just by dressing up and looking good. Here are some outfit ideas and style tips to spice things up for your indoor holiday outfits!
1. Get Christmas Cozy
Take loungewear to another level. For the holidays, this will mean getting cozy in easygoing pieces as you incorporate Christmas colors into your wardrobe. Have some hints of green and red in your outfits to fit the mood for Christmas parties down to Christmas Eve. A quick and simple style tip: Grab a solid sweater duster and pair it back to sweats, leggings, or jeans.
2. Cute sweaters are must-haves
We all deserve a cute sweater to have in the closet. When it comes to finding and shopping for cute sweaters, always remember that they can go a long way. They’re not only meant for the holidays, but you can also wear them almost year-round, depending on the thickness of the material used. You can have cute, printed sweaters, plain pieces, and embellished details. Easily pair them back with essentials such as denim jeans, booties, as well as midi skirts.
3. Go bold with red
Ever wonder why Santa Clause’s suit is all red? The best way to express this mood is by going bold with red. That simple pop of color exudes passion, confidence, and ignited excitement---perfect for the season when everyone feels extra festive. Pick out a lovely red top or blouse, dress it up with flattering pants, or go casual with denim jeans with embellished details. This way, you can effortlessly fit the eventful time!
4. Glamorous indoor styling
Who says you can’t get all glammed up indoors? Playing dress-up at home is always an exciting feat, especially for the holidays. Even if you’ve got nowhere to go, feel free to get all festive and stylish with a wide array of pieces you can play around with. We’ve got frocks you can wear with booties, floral dresses for a more formal look, plaid numbers for that preppy trend, and unique prints to stand out in. From intimate dinners to Zoom reunions, feel confident even just inside your own home.
5. More for staying indoors
When we want to go out but just staying in, we’re reaching for comfortable, chic, and modern casual outfits that spruce up our look and spice up the festive mood. Pair a ruffled, printed blouse with black leggings or dark-colored jeans and ankle boots for that edgy, carefree look. Or perhaps you can simply throw on a denim jacket over a blouse for that laid back yet stylish feel. Staying indoors never has to be boring!
6. Sparkle for the New Year
Greet 2021 with a fashionable, sparkly bang! When it comes to shiny fabric, metallic pieces, and embellishments, keep it subtle and chic by not going over-the-top. Thankfully, you can do this just by wearing the right items, such as pairing a shimmering blouse with a flattering pant and finishing it off with flats or block heels. In celebrating such an eventful time, always go for comfort, style, and accessibility.
7. Get pretty and cozy for the countdown
Staying indoors for the New Year’s Eve countdown means you can be stylish and cozy at the same time. Chic pieces you can wear at home are cold-shoulder tops with pants, a stunning wrap maxi dress with flats, throw on a studded cardigan over your shoulders for simple glam, and keep a plush sweater on hand to keep you warm. Comfortably beautiful, you can also invest in essential pieces you can wear over and over, so you get your money’s worth.
8. Accessories make or break a look
On top of it all, every outfit would be incomplete without the essential accessories to set it apart from the rest. There's a perfect selection of accessories to pair back to holiday outfits, such as cute beret hats, metallic bangles or bracelets, a fancy protective face mask, and earrings with beautiful stones. These pieces not only add to your style and refine your taste, but they’re also a viable way for you to express yourself uniquely. So, for the upcoming new year, don’t be afraid to take your festive outfits up a notch.
Celebrate the little things
Despite the changes in celebrating the holidays this year, these annual events are meant to be prepared for. It’s the time of the year we all anticipate reunions, dressing up, and lots of presents to wrap, give, and receive.
Making time and effort to dress up for the holidays is a way for you to show your friends and relatives that you care enough to be presentable for this special time. Making yourself look and feel good is also a takeaway you can bring towards the coming new year. So, don’t hesitate to go an extra mile in looking your best. Go forth with your best presence and enjoy this most-awaited time of year.
