Stephs Christmas Edit
Posted on 18 December by Stephie Vanneste
Steph shows us how to dress and prep for Christmas in style
They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but what precisely makes the holiday season so charmed? For me it’s the holiday cheer, parties with friends and family, thoughtful gift giving, Christmas preparations, family favourite recipes, decorating, bringing in the New Year and of course the excuse to go shopping!
With the holiday shopping season already in full swing I’ve teamed up with the Sunshine Plaza to share my go-to holiday outfits and preparations.
Holiday dressing is always a challenge—how can we embrace the celebratory spirit without looking too cliché? My sartorial approach to this time of the year is presenting a chic and polished version of myself, incorporating one select element that differs from my daily routine like this metallic print skirt from Jeans West. For me subtlety is key, which means refraining from sequins, glitter, or anything else that could possibly associate my dress choices with a Christmas ornament.
We’re down to the gift-giving wire, and it’s almost time for most of us to start wrapping our thoughtfully handpicked gifts. Luckily Kikki K has knocked our socks off with their holiday decor to ensure your parcels are just as beautiful on the outside as they are thoughtful on the inside. I also picked up some cute Christmas classics from Peter Alexander for some holiday cheer while I prep for Christmas!
No need to gift traditional trinkets and knick knacks this holiday season, give the gift of style with these small but chic finds for your stylish stocking stuffers.
