What should I wear to a Christmas party? It will be kind of
kind of not. Should you paint nails red and wear red lip
stick, or is
that overkill? Also, are Christmas sweaters and earrings and
dorky or OK?
Thanks a bunch,

First off, I would say that red nails and red lip stick
Christmas paraphernalia will defintely make you an extra on the
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Be careful with that
junk! For a
Christmas party, you want to look sassy and sexy. The holiday
spirit does not
necessarily mean dressing up as the family christmas tree with
red lips. Try
silver or gold glitter makeup to highlight your eyebrow and
cheek bones and a
glossy berry colored lip gloss.
If you want to go for a vamp
look, do red
lipstick with no eyeliner and little to no mascara. For the
try a black tube dress with a zebra print long coat or a
pleather red long
coat. Red is always a good color to wear, but red and green
can be quite
Go for sleek lines: knee length faux suede skirts with
boots and a fitted sweater, boot leg pants with a tie back
tank top. Sport
some funky platform boots and for sickly cutesy appeal, throw
on the Santa
hat for about five minutes til someone grabs is off your dome.
Get your Groove on girl!

Ok Stacey, babe, definitely do not wear ultimate red
apple red nailpolish! EEEEEK! That's a no no! Keep your
make-up sleek and
shimmery or casual with earth tones.
You can wear earrings and
(preferably small dainty earrings)...just not the "festive"
kind. You know
the kind of sweaters I'm talkin about....the kind grandma
bought you when you
were 10, the ones with the Christmas tree and all the sequins
you could barf
over! (Let her wear that to the party!)
But, do wear something
simple and elegant.
Maybe an all black dress with a cardigan
and an up
hair-do(long or short). Go for plain, bold colors
plum)...nothing real detailed, the design should stay scarce.
How about a
dress in a silky, shimmery blue? Or you could try a simple
a string of flowers at the hem...and a plain top. Try a strappy
top or a
three-quarter length top? Long and simple is in for this
season outings. Keep that in mind and you'll be sure to
dazzle that "crush"
under the missle toe, or impress the other party members.

First of all thanks for the great question! With
the Christmas season quickly approaching us we all
need to plan ahead for party wear! The Christmas
sweaters and earrings and all that is definitely dorky
if you over do it! Those types of articles are geared
more towards family-oriented parties. Red nail polish
just about goes with anything! It's my personal fav.
shade of nail laquor! Dress those nails up a notch
too! Add white stripes, green or silver dots, just be
For a party that is not too dressy, but definitely not
casual, I would go with either a skirt or boot cut
dress pants with a cute sweater set! You could even
get a cute lil' dress and wear a sweater over it.
you wanna go a little more glam, get a sequined,
sparkle or flashy top and pair it with a plain black
pair of pants! DO NOT WEAR PUMPS WITH PANTS! That is
a huge fashion mistake that some people often make, so
just thought I would warn you! You could even put on
a pair of Christmas earrings on, just as long as they
match of course! Well have a ball at your party!!!

I would not wear
the whole red lipstick-nailpolish-christmas shirt thing.
I would wear a cute little dress. The dress could be
plain black or any
color. Then you can add a few Christmas accessories to this -
such as a
simple necklace or earrings.
With a simple black dress, you
could wear the
red lipstick and nailpolish, just be sure not to over-do it.
Use your best
judgement before you go to the party. Look in the mirror. If
you think you
look great, you'll feel great.
Have fun partying!

What shade of red are you planning to wear? And will you
be wearing red
clothes too? Deep, sultry reds have always looked sleek, even
remember those cosmetic ads featuring models in head to toe
red? However, I
have never been a fan of too much bright red and I despise
radioactive shades of red. Be cautious of getting slap happy
I personally dislike Christmas sweaters and jewelry since
they tend to be
cheap and loud. Avoid pieces that are too busy. Jewelry can be
