No-fuss Holiday Style Tips
The holidays are upon us: a time where we gather often with family and friends to celebrate a multitude of things. While your gift list, wish list, and to-do list are piling up, I want to give you a few fashion tips to incorporate into this season’s events and the months to follow! Come along as I share some no-fuss holiday styles featuring beautiful accessories made by Noonday Collection Artisan Partners.
From Work Gatherings to a Glitzy New Year’s Eve
When it comes to dressing up for an evening event, you can go with so many styles and layering pieces. My favorite dressed-up look, though, is always the little black dress. It’s a timeless classic that’s never let me down! Choose a shiny pair of statement earrings to dress it up, or stick with studs and a scarf to dress it down.
For this look, I’ve paired a classic LBD with one of my favorite Noonday statement earrings this season: the Kaleidoscope Earrings. The edgy gold mixed with the shine and elongated look make for an instant show stopper!
From the Tree Farm to Brunch with Friends
A cream sweater is a staple in every closet. The one I’ve chosen has blouson sleeves for something different. I love to dress this sweater up with a black pencil skirt, tights, and heels during the week, but on the weekend, I’m all about wearing effortless jeans. For this specific style, I chose a lovely Winter scarf. Noonday Collection’s Cozy Cables Zip Scarf is a favorite of mine because it’s chunky and perfect for layering.
To keep your scarf from feeling overbearing, throw on some simple yet eye-capturing earrings. Made with love in India, the Starstruck Earrings are the pair I gravitate to most often. Choose a stud if you wish, or get creative by adding a longer necklace to peek under the scarf!
From Dinner Parties to Happy Hour
For years I swore against it, but I’m back to believing a lace top is a must for every woman. You can tuck it into a skirt to dress it up, wear it under a jumper for an on-trend look, or wear it with jeans for a casual style. What I love most about a lace top is how versatile it is with different bottoms and layering pieces, and it goes well with almost any necklace.
The Velvet Rope Necklace and a lace top are a match made in style Heaven. This versatile Noonday Collection piece is a holiday must-have! I’ve styled it in so many ways – tying the bow in different areas and wrapping it at different amounts or lengths, braiding it throughout my hair, using it as a headband, and even styling it as a belt. If you prefer to wear statement earrings, the Velveteen Earrings in black have the same feel and texture as the Velvet Rope Necklace and also pair so well with this statement top!
Whether fashion is something that comes easy to you or is something that feels out of your realm, my hope is that you take one nugget from this blog post, treat yourself to a new Noonday Collection piece, and celebrate with people you love this holiday season!
