“Deck the halls with boughs of holly?” This holiday season, we’re decking out our closets and ourselves with clothes, makeup, and a new hairdo. The Christmas spirit has us ready to jingle our bells into the New Year! What better way to do that than with a festive and sexy look? For those glammed out divas who are ready to look like a present these next few weeks, check out our 2017 holiday lookbook.
If you’re feeling like a present to everyone you speak to, why not dress like it? This sexy red top from River Island is just the way to get into the mood and into the holiday spirit. Not only is red the color of Christmas, but it’s the latest trend for AW ’17-’18. Pair this top with a black midi bodycon skirt for a sleek and sexy look. In turn, you can style it with white wide leg trousers for a more festive elegance.
While bows are perfect to make you look like the present you are, New Years’ Eve has us ready for the glitz and glamour. This holiday season, we’re definitely dabbling into the sequins, sparkles, and embellishments. This particular design that we love comes from the Missguided holiday collection with social media influencer, Carli Bybel. Regardless of whether it’s the same dress or a similar style, throw on some sparkle and you’ll be ready to ring in the New Year.
Embracing the look and feel of natural hair is something that women are quickly becoming more comfortable with and we definitely say let those kinks and curls fly loose this holiday! For a soft and vivacious look, a headful of curls is our recommendation. Whether you’re rocking a twist-out on your own locks or slaying in a wig or weave with a similar texture and style, you’ll definitely create a beautifully classic look.
While many of us are afraid to do ‘a big chop’ after years of long hairstyles, THE BOB IS IN. In order to create a sleek and sexy look this holiday season, we’re opting for a straight bob. While you might not want to take a pair of scissors to your own hair, what else are wigs for?! It doesn’t matter if it’s done on your natural hair or hair you’ve spent your coin on, but a short, straight bob is one of the hottest looks for this 2017 holiday season.
Achieving a classic holiday look is probably the easiest to accomplish. While you’re free to choose amongst your face products, the real stars of the show are your eyes and lips. If you’re going for a truly classic look, leave your eyes bare. For those looking to add a bit more sex appeal, a slight smoky eye will make all the difference. While the eyes can be the opener, the headliner is your lipstick! Choose a bold, matte red lip that will last all night long, especially if you’re kissing someone underneath the mistletoe.
Many of us might be aiming for a classic look for Christmas, but when New Years’ Eve rolls around, we’re going for sexy and glamorous. It’s the last day of the year, so we’re turning our makeup dials all the way to 100. For ringing in the New Year, we definitely recommend a look with shimmer or glitter eyeshadow. Pair it with a winged liner that will be so sharp, it will stop the 2018 haters in their tracks. You can keep it simple with a nude lipstick, but if you’re feeling extra bold, pair the look with a red or vampy lipstick.
Can you believe that 2017 is almost over and we’re prepping ourselves for the holidays?! 2017 has been a whirlwind and we can only hope that these upcoming weeks top off the ending of a great year!
