Ruffles, Flowers and Shine!

Ruffles, flowers and shine! The ruffled look-whether gently gathered ruffles or the added swirls of ruffled fabric-give a soft, feminine look to holiday outfits! In addition, the ever present, added on 3-dimensional flowers give blouses, dresses, purses and hair ornaments a special touch for dressing up! The holidays always scream for shine, with silver and gold found in everything from clothing and shoes to purses and jewelry! Soft, swirly fabrics will also be on the hit parade for this holiday season!

Ruffles

Ruffles give a soft edge to every frame. If you are tall and skinny, then ruffles will give you curves. If you are a "curvy" girl, then ruffles will lend a willowy illusion as they rustle when you move. If you have a boyish figure, ruffles will soften the hard planes and give you a more feminine look. Every body style can wear ruffles. More ruffles or less.....it is up to you! Try them around the face to draw attention upward and away from your hips. A ruffled hemline will break up a long, lean look and make you seem softer and more approachable! Try on several styles of clothes with ruffles in different areas to see which is your best look.

Flowers

Flowers aren't just for spring - they are for the whole year! You will find flowers in prints, on shoulders, in hair and on handbags and shoes! Flowers are everywhere. The silhouette of the flower reminds us all of the beauty of our petaled favorites. It makes us feel special, as if we are wearing a corsage! A flower in the hair makes even a ponytail a special style! Not really a flowery gal, then carry it on a handbag and you can put it down when overwhelmed! Flowers come in all styles from silk and ribbon to those that are made from the fabric of the outfit. Wear it on the left hand side to draw attention to your face when shaking hands. A floral fabric can hide figure flaws by distracting the eye and can soften a boxy figure, but beware....busy florals in a small print can actually enlarge a person! Again try on several types of florals and accessories with flowers. You will find the right one for you!

Shine

Standing next to the Christmas tree with make you sparkle if you are wearing something made to shine! Whether it is blingy jeans on your behind, a pair of diamond earrings, or glittery high heels every lady enjoys her shining moments! This season has shimmer and shine on everything. There is makeup that glimmers, blouses that shimmer, jeans with bling and shoes that sing with shine! Once a woman felt too bold and obvious in the shiny outfit, now she is trendy and chic. Wear a big ring or a belt with bling, but be sure to add some shine to your wardrobe this season!

Simple Touches

Simple touches can mean the most. It isn't necessary to wear every fashion trend with every outfit! Take a really great outfit and add one simple touch: a flower, a ruffle scarf or a pair of shiny shoes. You will make it a trendy outfit and feel great doing it!

      Excellent tips for adding some fabulousness to the holidays! I especially love flowers in the hair - as you say, there are so many options out there, and you can do anything from subtle to bold and give that extra something special to an outfit. Voted up and useful!
