We hope you’re feeling social, because it’s coming up to that time of the year when it seems there’s always a party, always a social event to go to. That’s right, we’re talking about Christmas, and all the fun and festive hijinks that the period brings. Of course, you don’t want just to attend these get-togethers: you want to make sure you positively look your best, and that you’re turning heads for all the right reasons. Below, we take a look at five rules to make sure you stand out from the crowd.
Invest in a Killer Dress
Never underestimate the power of a killer dress, especially it’s red. While some people love wearing a black dress, that’s not really the right colour for Christmas and winter; you want to be wearing something with some warmth. There’s an art to buying a dress that feels like it was made just for you, so shop around and try a few on until you have that ‘eureka’ moment when you look in the mirror and think “yep, I look pretty darn amazing in this dress.”
Play up your Features
There’s only so much you can learn by copying other people’s styles, purely because all our bodies are different in one way or another. If you want to look your best, then you’ll need first to understand what your best features are, and then make them the focal point of your look. Our features are our best resource; they cost nothing to flaunt, and they’ll always be there, so don’t be afraid to use them.
Let the Accessories Do the Talking
If you’re keeping things simple with a knockout dress, then you’re going to need some accessories to help you really stand out. There’ll be a lot of people wearing dresses, and while yours might look amazing, it won’t be instantly obvious in a crowd of people. So let your accessories do the talking. A piece of Jaubalet Paris custom jewellery will take your outfit to the next level, and will have the added virtue of being completely your own: no one else at the party will have a piece like it. Beyond the jewellery, don’t forget the other two options you have to bring some personality to your outfit: your bag, and your coat.
A New Style
If you opt for a new style – such as a new makeup look or hairstyle – then you’ll first be turning heads because everyone will be saying “now, who is that?” and then the penny will drop. There are a bunch of new makeup styles that are in fashion this winter, so take a look and see which will be best to highlight your natural facial features. Also, don’t forget those nails!
The Power of Attitude
Finally, it’s worth remembering the number one rule for turning heads: strutting with attitude! If you look and feel great, show it with pride and own the party with confidence. A killer outfit isn’t complete without the corresponding attitude to go with it.
