‘Tis the season to kick your shoes off and lounge around with family and friends. With that said, there are a lot of things that come to mind when thinking about holiday attire, as well as gifting. With help from some friends in the online fashion sphere, we’ve put together a list of holiday fashion faux pas. So here are some tips and tricks to avoid catastrophe.
- If you’re a guy, you’ll need to know how to shop for women’s shoes. Thanks to Desiree at About.com, there is a formula.
When in doubt, go for cashmere, it will never fail you this time of year.
Any item that can be described as "fun" is rarely flattering.
If you wouldn’t wear it, don’t give it to someone else.
If you’re buying clothing, don’t forget to get a gift receipt.
Patent, metallics and beads are all appropriate for this time of
year—just not all in the same outfit. Sparkle yourself strategically!
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can skip the pedicure
with dressy sandals. To review: Open-toe shoes with bare legs, fishnets
and tights are okay; nylons are not okay (trust us and please don’t argue).
Stay away from office party attire that emphasizes your cleavage/beer gut/muffin top/back fat/etc.
Santa hats: Acceptable only on small children, pets and Santa.
