holidaysGet heads turning with the following festive tips by Buffi Jashanmal, Project Runway Season 10, Designer & Author.

Accessorize…

By simply adding a bright silk scarf around your neck or a gold chain can take any look from drab to dazzling. This season’s hot trend is chokers in any style which can instantly transform your look.

Shoes…

Shoes are a quick way to add fun to any holiday outfit. Think bejewelled heels with a plain dress or metallic heels with a plain pantsuit. Even flats can be fabulous if embellished with beads or jewels. Be sure to take care of your feet also by indulging in a regular pedicure to keep looking polished and wellgroomed all the time.

Black…

When wearing black, it is always good to pair it up with something different to give a pop of color to break up the monotony. Try the latest stripes, color-blocking, or prints to infuse pops of color.

Underneath…

Believe it or not but what you wear under your outfit is extremely important. “Always invest in a very good bra especially while wearing form fitting holiday season dresses,” explains Jashanmal. “Also, don’t forget good quality shape wear like Spanx to cleverly hide the bulges and lumps that look worse under form fitting clothing.”

Pair up…

Invest in a good quality blazer to pair up with trousers. “This can turn instantly transform your plain outfit into a sharper, more formal one,” she says, with leather as one ideal option.

Color pops…

Add a pop of color in the form of an accent or accessory in brighter colors or metallic to jazz up an outfit. Even bright red nail polish or an on-trend dark maroon lipstick will help jazz up your overall look.

Easy transition…

When choosing your office attire during the holiday season, choose pieces that can work easily from day to evening where you just need to add a scarf or a formal pair of shoes; for example, a silk blouse or a wide legged formal trouser.
