The beginning of the holiday season means the arrival of party season, too. It’s a time to enjoy the festivities and look and feel your best. But instead of buying an entirely new outfit (because who has the time or money for that?), mix a few on-trend pieces with items you already have in your closet to create your next holiday party outfit.
1. Tailored Black Pants
Pair your go-to black dress pants with a flirty ruffle top or silk blouse in a rich color or lively pattern. Then add sparkly accessories: a ballet flat with jewel details or a statement necklace and stud earrings.
Tip: Gain Flings 3-in-1 laundry pacs help you keep your holiday clothes clean and smelling amazing. There’s no need to measure – just toss in a pac to help fight stains and eliminate odours. And for clothes that can run through the dryer, add a Bounce dryer sheet to the cycle to reduce static and wrinkles.
2. Textured Knits
You probably have a cabled sweater in a neutral color hiding away in your closet. Wear it with dark jeans, crystal earrings and heels to turn a daytime look into a cozy holiday outfit.
Tip: To protect your sweaters from pilling, fuzzing and stretching, add Downy fabric conditioner to the wash cycle.
3. Colourful Scarf
Add a playful pop of color to a basic or muted outfit with an eye-catching scarf. Tie it around your neck or casually drape it over your shoulders for a simple festive look.
Tip: After the party, freshen up scarves and other delicate or hard-to-launder items with a spritz of Febreze FABRIC.
4. Sophisticated Blazer
A simple structured blazer can be dressed up with a sequined top or a metallic camisole. Add a decorative brooch for a vintage vibe, and partner with dark straight-leg pants and flats in a complementary color.
Tip: For items you wear more than once between washes – like blazers – add Gain Fireworks in-wash scent booster to each load to keep them smelling great. We love the Moonlight Breeze scent.
5. Little Black Top
A simple black top is one of the most versatile fashion staples. Wear it with the latest string-tied necklace or multiple mixed-metal strands. Add dark-wash jeans and simple black heels for an effortless-looking style.
