Whether it's Christmas Day or New Year's Eve, sometimes it takes a lot of imagination to put together a festive outfit worthy of the name. Good news, sometimes all it takes is a few accessories to liven up a suit that's too monotonous or give a boost of sparkle to a dress. Here are seven ways to appear in your best light.
A SCARF TO WARM UP WITH ELEGANCE
The scarf is not only aesthetic, it can also warm up the coldest. To get the most out of a silk scarf and guarantee a warm evening, opt for this watercolor-style floral model , this paisley or two- tone pattern stole , or even this ecru-colored enveloping model . Either way, these options will pair wonderfully with an elegant tuxedo or minimalist dress.
A HAT TO BOOST A SUIT
Brighten up your outfits with a hat, it's possible! To do this, choose a model with a classic shape, like an elegant khaki fedora , a navy trilby with timeless chic or a bright yellow hat right on trend , which will bring a pop touch to the winter grayness. In addition to adding extra soul to your look, these accessories will protect you from an unexpected downpour...
A JEWEL TO MAKE A LITTLE BLACK DRESS SHINE
If you have opted for a plain dress or any other monochrome outfit, don't hesitate to wear a piece of jewelry (or several) to liven up your look. Among our sure values, revisited hoop earrings , a bangle adorned with rhinestones or a chain-shaped bracelet , a necklace with a golden pendant or an XXL ring ... Our advice? Prefer accessories of the same shade to be sure to get it just right.
A TIE TO ENHANCE A SHIRT
There is no doubt, the tie is one of the essentials of the men's wardrobe. This elegant accessory is often ideal for adding a dose of elegance to a shirt (and more generally to a suit). For a festive evening, choose a plain pink knitted model , a royal blue tie , or even a floral version with an undeniable 60's spirit .
SUSPENDERS FOR A PERSONALIZED TOUCH
Gentlemen, add a festive touch to your costume with suspenders! Greatly forgotten in fashion, they are nevertheless ideal for enhancing a look. All you have to do is pair them with your suit: in white if you want to stay classic or in a printed version to stand out. And if you ever prefer a belt, this elegant brown leather model is one of the must-haves.
CUFFLINKS FOR THE FINISHING TOUCH
Originality right down to the sleeves... Even if your timeless white shirt is enough in itself, why not give it a twist with cufflinks? You will have the choice between this curved silver model or this graphic version , which can compliment an immaculate white shirt or one with a printed lining .
A BAG TO KEEP YOUR ESSENTIALS CLOSE TO HAND
Finding the perfect case to store your phone, wallet and other sets of keys is not easy, especially when it has to match a holiday outfit. In any case, opt for a small size (no need for a large shopping bag for just one evening) and choose from our favorite models: a bag with eyelets for a bohemian outfit, a cream-colored shoulder strap to contrast with a look monochrome, a pop green handbag for a touch of color. Minimalists take note, this mini-size shoulder strap will allow you to slip a phone in (and nothing else).
You are now ready for festive moments!
