What to wear for Christmas and New Year’ eves?

1 déc

Christmas and New Year are two important evenings that you don’t want to ruin because of a terrible clothing “faux pas”. Traps and mistakes are numerous for these two special ones. Here are few « do and don’t » that could help.

In any cases :

1/ Don’t exaggerate, don’t be over dressed

2/ Play with few but quality accessories

3/ Be nuanced: show less, suggest more

 

For Christmas Eve, it’s not a tradition here in France to wear green and red color. We usually get dressed in black – as for a special night – we just might wear sequins, gold jaquard or paillettes that would add a little bright on our outfits.

If you still want to stay in the Christmas mood, I’ll recommend not to wear both green and red color at the same time. You don’t want to look like the Christmas tree or  Santa’s elf, do you ?

You’ll choose just one color for your clothes : red OR green (dark green will be nicer). Or you might mix red OR green with a neutral color. Why not a red dress with opaque black tights, or a green skirt with a black shirt ?

You can also play with traditions in a different way, wearing tartans or a folklore handicraft piece. Just be careful: don’t do it in a too classical way…

For Christmas, you’ll also prefer not too short dresses  and not too pronounced V-necklines: it’s a family evening, isn’t it ?

If you want an additional Chrismas touch to your outfit, why not choosing a neckline OR a pair of earrings (never wear both of them at the same time) that remind Christmas time: snowflakes by instance, they can be very delicate and pretty

For New Year’s Eve, you are more likely to dress  in a chic and sexy way.

Still play it softly, in a subtle way. As pictures speak louder than words, here are few exemples :
