Sparkly Minimalism for Holiday Looks!

December 06, 2015

Seasonal festivities necessitate a wardrobe refresh and some complementary shopping. Your closet should include timeless high-quality comfy basics as well as stunners and statement pieces that will elevate them into eveningwear. Glow and glamour are the pillars of your holiday list of options. You need to shine bright all day long, being able to dress up on-the-go for the ‘happy hour’ or an unexpected party invite. Let’s go through ideas that will glamourise your looks in a sophisticated, Nordic-inspired manner.

DEFINE MINIMALISM

In our days minimalism has been translated to the normcore look, which is the opposite of attention-grabbing trends and loud choices. Yet minimalism can also be glamorous and luxurious. A nice fabric of interesting textural quality, a fabulous monochrome ensemble and minimum details are keys to this look. Your clothes and accessories should not be overly designed. Chunky golden jewellery, black & white, and clean silhouettes will add up to your femininity.

PICK THE RIGHT JEWELS

Sometimes a tiny charm or an oversized cuff can make the effect. Small necklaces give a hint of fragility and lightness, while statement bracelets offer a more dynamic spirit. When wearing strapless or a wide neckline, long earrings combined with a chignon are a must. Impressive rings don’t go with equally dominating bracelets on the same hand, because they are competing with each other. But you can definitely mix gold with silver in the same look. It’s modern!

EMBRACE THE BODYSTOCKING

Whenever you have a dramatic maxi skirt, a sexy pencil style, or sharp cigarette pants, you definitely need to direct focus towards them. A black or white bodysuit will enhance its visual impact and elevate your feminine silhouette. Being fitted in your torso, the bodystocking mixed with a volumey bottom can fake an hourglass body shape.

WEAR PEARLS AT ALL TIMES

Pearls can dress up any look, but that doesn’t mean that they only go with formal eveningwear. You can literally wear them over everything, from denim to chiffon and from neoprene to the most luscious velvet. Nordic design makes it cool and edgy and even those multiple strands of pearls can get a youthful styling. Especially white freshwater pearls add luminosity to your face and have a special allure.

TRY A HINT OF COLOUR

Proponents of minimalism prefer black, white, grey, nude, midnight blue, and other neutrals. Yet if you enrich this serene base with small accents of colour, your look will get more flirty and sophisticated. Experiment with colourful pearls, gems, and crystals. Favourite accent shades for this season is burgundy or merlot, purple, pink, and hematite grey.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Dressing up doesn’t mean that you need to layer sparkle upon sparkle. Maybe your bodystocking is shimmering or your earrings are reflecting the light. But pieces that display that sparkliness should be limited to one or two for every look. And they should also be well-coordinated in terms of style, colour, or material. Cohesion is what minimalism offers generously. Inspired by the snowy cliffs of the Nordic landscape, you can create amazing holiday outfits of sheer elegance!
