Are you hoping to break out of the ugly holiday sweater trend this year? Holiday collections are currently available in many retail stores and online shops to help you feel inspired and festive without having to succumb to the ugly holiday sweater phenomenon. If the popular theme doesn’t qualify for your upcoming party, here are some ideas based on beautiful collections available now.
There is something so delicate and feminine about lace prints that keep them in the loop all year long. However, lace prints above jewel tones and rich metallics help incorporate the trend into holiday collections from a variety of retailers this year. Consider these gorgeous pieces from Suzy Shier, full of texture and affordable for a variety of budgets. Velvet, brocade, jacquard, and embroidery are luxe prints and fabrics to keep in mind, as well.
Sparkle and Shine
All that glitters and shines are no-brainers when it comes to holiday dressing. To change it up, you can stray away from sequins, as shiny fabrics offer the same amount of dazzle for a modern touch of sparkle. Metallics have a beautiful way of capturing light, and beads or embroidery can have the same effect as sequins in terms of shine.
A staple colour for a few seasons now, there is something so classic, elegant, and sophisticated about wearing a white ensemble. Resemble the snow in a little white dress, an all-over white pants and top combo, or even a jumpsuit if you dare. Creams and off-white shades can create just as rich of a look. If white is not your colour, consider an all-over black or all-over silver look; two colours splattered throughout holiday collections this year. A well put-together monochromatic look never fails!
With statement making looks this year, there’s no need to rely on an ugly holiday sweater as the only option to create a conversation with what you wear. You can be your fashion-forward self this holiday season with fun and bright new pieces.
