Comfortable And Chic Shoes

No shame in resorting to flats at this season! We’ve even got some gorgeous recommendations in our festive shoes selection. Since you’re probably rushing around, do pick the style that will allow you to amble around easily. It can be flats, or wedges or even boots, but make sure it’s a statement pair! Rich colors, velvet textures, or a little bling is a good way to go.

 

Move Those Bottoms

Make sure to wear bottoms that allow for a lot of breathing room and movement. Your ultimate, fool-proof option is a skirt! It’s feminine, classy and totally in for the season. Plus, you can squeeze in a dance or two with them on.

 

Accessorize, Accessorize!

Right, so it might be one of those days where everything is amok, and you’re just running out of outfits to match. Make it up with accessories—the bigger, the better even. Now’s the time to put that chunky necklace, statement bangles and stacking rings to good use. Even the simplest outfit can be transformed by the right accessories.

 

Bag it!

Your mind is full of things to do, so your bag should probably have a little room to accommodate all the to-do-lists, flyers, sample products, and of course your touch-up kit. Time to whip out your favorite, roomy bag. Not too big that it becomes a chore to lug around, but enough for you to have your essentials and room for other things (like champagne?). Plus, a nice statement bag is also one way to dress up a look if you’re feeling too casual with the outfit.
