The Don'ts of Festive fashion!
Overdoing It: While accessories are a great way to elevate your look, be mindful not to overdo it. Sometimes, less is more. Choose one statement piece and let it shine. So if you have a Santa hat AND a Rudolph nose... Maybe only wear one!
Ignoring the Weather: Be mindful of the weather conditions when selecting your outfit. Don't let your desire for fashion overshadow your need to stay warm and comfortable. Wear a coat! It is so important to keep warm this Christmas season to avoid getting sick! If you are out and about this Christmas maybe opt for a scarf to keep your self covered up and cosy, keeping the winter chill out!
Wearing Uncomfortable Shoes: High heels may look stunning, but if you're going to be on your feet all night, consider comfortable footwear that won't leave you in pain. Why not opt for a glamorous pair of boots this season. They are Comfy and stylish! The Nero Giardini Boots are a fabulous addition to any winter wardrobe! They are comfortable, stylish and chic!
Neglecting Fabric Care: Check the care labels of your festive attire. Some fabrics require special care, and it's best to be prepared to keep your outfit in excellent condition. Sequin dresses and tops may require hand washing as this matereal is a little more delicate than some others!
Being Afraid to Mix Styles: The festive season is a time to mix and match styles. Don't be afraid to pair casual and formal pieces for a unique and trendy look. A gorgeous formal sequin top and a simple casual pair of jeans pair beautifully together!
