Christmas music is on the radio and holiday invitations have gone out – so besides your final grades for the semester, the really important question still remains…what you are going to wear to your holiday events? If you’re like most college students, you find it hard to create a fabulous wardrobe on a Ramen noodle budget. Whether you are a college student yourself, or tasked with buying presents for one, the professionals at the Polish Boutique offer some great tips on how to have a stylish holiday season without breaking the bank.
If you want to update your wardrobe for holiday events, but aren’t sure where to start – accessorize! Accessories make you look as if you’ve gotten a complete closet revitalization, but you’ve only added a vest to that blue swing dress you wore this summer. Unlike spring and summer, fall and winter accessories make more of a statement, so you can rely on them to add the style to your outfit. Think vests, hats, statement necklaces, and structured handbags to make your outfit pop and you the campus fashionista!
Adding a vest to your outfit can take you from the classroom to cheering on the Rams at a basketball game or even a holiday party. Whether your style is classic glamour or sporty chic, be sure to add this piece to your wardrobe this season. Another accessory that can add simplistic style to an outfit is a floppy hat. Black, taupe or Ram’s maroon – add a tassel necklace and you’ll instantly have an on-trend outfit.
Be budget friendly and stylish by layering. Try adding a printed poncho or cape to jeans and a fitted t-shirt or even a turtleneck. You’ll be warm and polished!
The classic cocktail dress is perfect for a holiday party. Be festive and show your relatives how proud you are of your University of Mobile by wearing a maroon or red cocktail dress in fit-and-flare or sheath style.
Merry Christmas to all you current and future Rams!
