The Christmas Wardrobe: Festive & Elegant in Black & White
Christmas-wear does not always have to be loud, ugly or childish. Don't get me wrong, I have a secret passion for the so called ugly Christmas sweaters with their colorful prints and built-in lights. I actually find them absolutely adorable. My point is that you can be festive and still look perfectly appropriate for every social situation, from a day at the office to a dinner date.
To achieve that I paired the most adorable sweater (which I finally gave in and bought after lusting over it for almost a month) with a skirt that I designed and sewed with my mother's help. The snowflake motive embellished with black sequins gives the perfect amount of sparkle while the full skirt layered with tulle looks elegant and feminine (the Ulyana Sergeenko way I hope). The feeling of cozy comfort is extremely important for me during the cold winter months so instead of heels I chose my cute fluffy boots that have never failed to keep me warm . Why not add even more sparkle with the hat and hair accessories. It's almost Christmas after all! A touch of red on the lips and I'm ready to conquer the world with a smile!
