When shopping for holiday outfits, opt for patterns and bold details. You don't have to stick to christmas-y colors like green and red. Instead, try finding a dress that you can get some mileage out of. This black and white shift dress featured above is a flattering style for all body types, plus the colors are neutral and it can be re-styled for any season.
Dressing slim tips: Forget about gym classes and eating healthy. This time of year is filled with too many treats and goodies to fret about the scale. If you are looking to instantly slim your appearance try reaching for fabric that will "keep the eye moving"- think metallic fibers, tweed, a bold print...etc. You can also distract the eye with a sparkly necklace or statement earrings. I personally love how chic these long fringe earrings look with a side swept pony. They also scream holiday glam!
