Holiday Style Guide: Red, Green & Gold



There’s something about December that makes me want to dress up more than usual.

I’m not about to dress like a Christmas tree, but I would like to add a few details here and there that add a holiday vibe to my everyday uniform. I’ve picked out items in red, green and gold – a bright red lip, burgundy velvet, deep green or teal shades, and gold in the form of nail polish, jewellery and clutches.

All of these items are under $100 (most under $50) and you could go with something simple, like a red lipstick and gold clutch with a white t-shirt and distressed jeans, or a green necklace and red flats with a white sundress. Or be brave enough to try out red and green together. A light sage green or blue-infused teal can be worn with red without making you look like a Christmas decoration.

Unless that’s your goal, of course, in which case carry on.
