5 Ways to Add Holiday Glam to Your Look

I wish I could say that my Christmas shopping is done, all the presents are wrapped, and our cards have been sent out. Instead, I find myself once again racing against the clock to get everything ready for Christmas. So I don't have a lot of time to worry about what I'll be wearing for various holiday events this year. 

After looking through my closet, I've come up with a few items that always make my outfits feel more festive for the holiday season. Mixed with classic pieces, like a simple cardigan or skinny black pants, these elements add a bit of glam to a look, but the end result still feels like me.

{5 ways to add holiday glam to any look}

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

{one} pops of red. I love red any time of year, but during the holidays I love pulling out all my favorite red pieces, like my red lace-up flats. 

flats: Topshop (similar) | sweatshirt: Loft (similar)

{two} embellished sweaters. Sweaters and sweatshirts with sequins or jewels decorating them are such an easy way to add a little glam to any look; easy, because you don't have to add much jewelry when you wear them since it's pretty much built in. 

{three} bold lipstick. I'm typically a gloss or neutral lipstick wearer most of the time, but this time of year I love wearing bold red and dark burgundy. Adding lipstick makes a look feel that much more special. 

{four} lace. Wearing lace always makes me feel more ladylike and glamorous, so of course it's perfect for the holidays. Also, depending on how you style it, it can go from the most casual to the dressiest occasions.

{five} statement jewelry. Since statement jewelry is my go-to for dressing up a look any time of year, the holiday season is no different. To up the glam factor even more, I'll mix multiple statement pieces, like a chunky pearl necklace and big rhinestone earrings. For me, that would feel like too much most of the time, but this time of year I think it works. 

How do you dress up your style for the holidays?
