Our 5 top tips for wearing black on Christmas Day without looking like the Christmas scrooge or the troubled niece/aunty/sister.We know that black isn’t always the first colour you pick for a celebration but we also know you can totally throw on a black dress and still look festive.
Often your make up can make or break an outfit. Try going for a lighter look for your eyes, as to not dampen the mood with your festive glare. Add a pop of bright lippy or get creative and add some glitter/sprinkles. Need inspiration? Cosmopolitan have put together the prettiest looks for the holidays.
Sometimes it’s not about what you wear but how you feel when you are wearing it. We know black can often be associated with a darker mood but if you find that your little black dress gives you the confidence to be yourself and brightens how you are feeling then why not? A study here in Queensland says “our clothes are like photographs and memories" and if your little black dress is associate with a great memory then you will always feel good wearing it.
A simple idea and also very effective. Use bright colours like red, pink, yellow or green. Add a little glitter or metallic to your look with bold accessories.
