Dressing for the holidays can be a real challenge, especially if you are like me. I can NEVER find anything to wear in my closet but that is a story for another time. I think there are some key things that can help make dressing for a holiday party fun. Keep it simple. There is a big reason why we all have at least one little black dress in our closet. You can wear that dress 100 times and make it look new each and every time. Accessorize! The best accessory for a black dress is your shoes. The black dress can be worn with red, silver, gold, purple and blue shoes especially now because these colors all tie in to the holidays. A pop of color does a lot to give you a whole new look.

Jewelry can change the look of a dress too. Pick up a few necklaces that are chunky and look festive. They draw attention to your face and are a great conversation starter. I like the new bib necklaces that are in stores now. My favorite one is covered in crosses and fleur de lis. Another important accessory that will change your look, is your hair. Wearing the same dress and changing your hairstyle gives you a fresh new look. There are lots of great updos and braids that you can find on YouTube. These YouTube videos come in handy when you are pressed for time and cannot get to your hairdresser. Most of these videos are easy to follow and create great results.

Don’t stress during the holidays. It is the merriest time of year!
