Grace Bernal’s California Style: ‘Tis The Season

Getting into the holiday spirit can be a bit of a rut with so much going on. With a calendar full of festivities and the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to get the party look together. Though this can be a tricky task, there are a few things you can do to get by with ease. My number one suggestion is “HAVE FUN!” Don’t be shy and sparkle all you can this season. After all, this is a the most festive time of the year.

Start off with a chic coat to keep you warm while you’re out in the cold weather. Make the coat pop by adding a broach or tying a belt around the waist. Sparkle up the season with a shimmery piece like sequined a skirt or a metallic blazer. Forget the little black dress for a moment! Get the into-the-holiday-spirit by wearing a bold blue or red dress instead. Add a velvet pair of shoes or an accessory like a hat or scarf to your outfit. Wear gigantic bib necklaces and bangle bracelets if you dare. Up-do your hair, get red lips, and smokey up your eyes. Simplicity isn’t for the holidays. This season calls for leather, lace, and faux furs. Give it a try! Ditch the denim until the party circuit dies down. Instead of denim, try the trouser in a fun festive color.

I hope these tips help get you in the holiday spirit. Have fun going out to your party of choice. There is nothing better in life than to dress to eat, drink, and be merry. Have a fabulous Holiday Season wherever you go.
