Holiday Style Guide– Thick Thursday Edition

Keep Stylish, Sexy, & Comfortable this Holiday Season

With Christmas quickly approaching, besides worrying about all the presents you have to buy (Check out our Gift Guides), what about what you will be wearing? You have to be sure that you are just as stylish, and are accentuating what you have so you look your best. We usually tend to go towards a looser look, so we can eat as much as we want. This is a great concept, and there are ways to do this while still accentuating your curves so you don’t look large. Here are my top 3 tips!


1- Belt it!

Choosing to wear a loose sweater, dress, or any article of clothing can be a both warm and comfortable look for Christmas. But how do you wear a loose sweater without looking too big? Belt it! The belt trend never goes out of style because of it actual purpose, but the belts have changed. You can now get extremely large belts, or ones with funky buckles—so you can really play with this idea. Besides being able to be as creative as you can, this also accentuates your waist!

2- Catsuit

We have all seen the trend of wearing a bodysuit, but what about a full jumpsuit? This will keep you looking long and lean, and it’s very easy to layer items on top. This can be a cute vest, jacket, belt, scarf, or whatever you feel your best in! You can be both comfortable and sexy showing off your best ASSets while keeping it classy and sexy. No matter what Christmas style you’re used to, whether it’s fancy or casual, there is a jumpsuit out there for you.

3- Funky pants

This has got to be one of my favourite trends! Wearing patterned pants, is not only a great casual and comfortable option, but it can be a fun way to spice up your outfit! Whether you wear it with a long jumper on top or a boxy sweater and jacket, you’ll be sure to feel sexy.   My favourite is getting a long turtleneck with leather leggings, this looks so put together, but leaves you being as comfortable as possible.  The pants can range from crazy patterned ones, to cool textured ones, it’s all up to you!
