Looking our best for the holidays is something we all look forward to because it means we get to shop (which can cure anything) and wear the latest trends. We all want to look glamorous and fabulous to mark the end of another year and welcome the new one.

But with holiday styles and must-haves coming out left and right, it can be confusing and daunting to pick something out that will give our wardrobes a major upgrade. So with a mixture of patterns, classic silhouettes, and textures, here are the five pieces you can sport to bring your holiday wardrobe to the next level!

--------------------------


"Caramel-Orange" Dress"

Something about the warm hue of this dress reminds us of sitting by the fireplace, drinking hot chocolate, and exchanging stories with our loved ones. It even emanates a bit of a 1970’s vibe that is perfect for this time of the year. This dress is both stylish and trendy, making it a winner to wear for all the parties you're going to!

Bright Red Heels

Who wouldn’t wear red for the fall/winter season? These bright red heels will give a hint of edginess to any look with its metal ring details without taking out the festive vibe. It will match well with any party OOTD you come up with, as well as look extra gorgeous when you pair it with a bright red lip!


Classic Pearls

Yes, we all love our sparkly and glittery jewellery during Christmas and New Year’s because it’s fun and bold. So to change it up this year, we're going back to basics with pearls. But we’re not talking about your typical-housewife-pearl-earrings, but pearls on your fingers and wrist! A pearl ring and bracelet will give your outfit that light touch of glow, which will beautifully pull your all your holiday looks together.


Animal Print Fringe Clutch

For those who love bold clothes, we haven’t forgotten about you with this reptile print fringe clutch that will surely be the icing on all your party outfits! Suitable for both the day and the night, this fun purse is going to make you look like a fashion-forward boss!


Rainbow Lenses

And we can’t forget or neglect our peepers just because the Sun isn’t always out during this time. So toss your simple, black frames to the back of your closet first and sport some sunglasses with rainbow (slash multicoloured) lenses! They will protect your eyes, make you look mysterious, and add a splash of colour to this cold and dreary weather!

Finding the perfect bag is like finding the perfect pair of jeans — there are so many brands, colours, and cuts to choose from, but once you do find ‘the one’, you'll never let it go. A handbag is essential to any woman, be it for school, or work, or just casually running to the bank.

It can define you, make or break your outfit, and the most important thing of all, hold all the things your two hands can’t. So if you’re still on a perfect-bag-hunting-journey, keep reading below for the five different handbags that every woman must have -- guiding you on what you should be investing on, and what you should ignore.

--------------------------


Roomy Tote

This is basically the perfect all-around bag. You can use it for work, going on vacation, sleepovers, for dinner, and so much more. Its simple frame and classic elegance make this a must-have for all women out there. Neutral colors are best for tote bags since they can be used for a lot of different occasions and need to match a lot of looks.

Structured Satchel

We like to call the satchel the “power bag” because of its gorgeous build that looks like it can withstand anything! This bag comes in numerous shapes and sizes and can have as much room as a tote bag, or as little as a clutch; and can also be used for a bunch of occasions, be it formal or casual. But what makes this style stand out is how it pulls a look together — it has the power to turn any dull outfit into a lively, fashion-forward one!


Tiny Clutch

For evenings out, a clutch is a must because when you’re having fun with your friends or family, you can’t always be bothered with a huge bag. The perfect clutch must have enough space to hold essentials such as tissue, cash, cards, blotting sheets, and a few makeup products you’ll need for touch-ups! Another thing the perfect clutch must possess? It should also be appropriate for day time! Once you find the perfect balance between an evening clutch and a daytime clutch, we guarantee you'll use it all the time!


Bohemian Bucket Bag

If you’re not into stiff, square handbags, then the bucket bag is for you. This round bag, similar in features to the hobo bag, has so much room to carry all your essentials that it can hold your wallet, makeup bag, cellphone, and DSLR camera! Talk about having too much (awesome) space!


Stylish Crossbody

Want to go crazy with colours and prints? Then the crossbody is the perfect bag to do it with! Available in an array of sizes and colours, the crossbody is suitable for casual outings, lunches, and so much more! Another perfect all-arounder, you can wear this purse with any outfit you can think of, to any occasion you can think off. They look gorgeous for the day and night time because of its size, style, and shape! They’re not too big and they don’t look too casual, making this a closet staple for years to come!
