Friend Post: Holiday Fashion

10 Dec

I would like to introduce you all to my canadian friend, Shannon! (Check out how she spells color. Why don’t we all do that?) You may remember her from our ornament swap. She is here to do something that I cannot: offer fashion advice. Enjoy and follow her!


Hey! I’m Shannon, yes that’s right another Shannon! We like to team up and conquer the world sometimes 🙂 I like to think we’re quite fabulous while we do it too, don’t you agree? In addition to being a Shannon, I blog in a little corner of the blog-o-sphere called Polish and Sugar. I like to blog about all things pretty, everything from fashion, beauty, home decor, food, and a little bit of life.

Today I wanted to share with you my tips for holiday fashions. No matter if you’re tackling your first Christmas with the in-laws, New Years eve as a single gal, or the holiday work party you need to impress at, a few simple things and you’ll be dressed to rock it.

Holiday Work Party – You want to impress the boss, by looking put together and professional, while still showing you can have a little fun. Keep to simple black and white, with pops of colour and glitter in your shoes and accessories. And to top it off, a sweet little sock bun is just perfect. I have a tutorial on how to do a sock bun here to help you out with that too!

Christmas Dinner – You want to be cozy with the fam, and still make sure to wear something comfortable for all that food you’re about to eat! Everyone will love the bold red pant, but you can keep it neutral and calm with an oversized lace sweater. The perfect little ankle bootie, and some bangled bracelets and this outfit will be a big hit even with your not so favourite relative. For bonus points? Rock a red nail polish, and some pretty nude coloured lip gloss.

New Year’s Eve – The big night! It’s time to have fun, celebrate the past year, and bring in the new year with a fresh start. New Year’s Eve is all about the glam, but make sure to keep it classy! A must for every New Year’s Eve party is a dress that is sequined to the max. Pair it with platform pumps, a studded clutch and some pretty jewelery and you’ll have your choice of kisses at midnight 😉

I’d love for you to stop by Polish and Sugar, or follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Thanks so much to Shannon for having me today 🙂

Did we just become best friends? How much do you want that New Years Dress? I’d say on a scale of 1 to 10, at least a 16.
