This time of year there are a ton of holiday parties: parties with friends, family, and the work place. Yesterday evening was my husband’s holiday party and I knew I wanted to wear something geek chic yet have elements that are fitting for the holidays. I thought sharing what I threw together may help others that want to do the same. 🙂
When working with a piece that in itself may not be considered “holiday,” it’s easy to make it work by adding accessories and additional pieces that give it a more holiday feel. In the case of the Her Universe Star Wars Stormtrooper dress, the elements that give it a bit more oomph are the black with silver sparkle tights, multi-strand silver necklace, sparkle stud earrings, red blazer, and red lips. I like to pair a red lip with liquid liner. For shoes, I live in a place where we have to walk everywhere so I went with comfortable, but fashionable, knee high boots. Boots are a nice bonus too as it keeps me warm during the cold weather!
Other colors to incorporate to holiday outfits aside from red: green, blues, and metallics. Anything with shimmer also gives a holiday vibe to any outfit.
Below is the photo of me in the full outfit. Note: Apologies for the quality of my photo. Eventually I will be able to afford a good camera to take photos of outfits!
