First, let’s look at the four basic wardrobe styles to be considered, based upon your body shape and personality.

  1. Classic — For those who are always looking for timeless elegance and simple styles that are never trendy or follow the current fad. Think of Grace Kelly or Jackie O.
  2. Sporty Natural — If this is you, I think you’ll agree that comfort and minimal fuss, along with a relaxed look that is not tight or uncomfortable defines this look. Think of Jennifer Aniston or Sandra Bullock.
  3. Romantic — Femininity is the best word to describe this wardrobe personality. The romantic personality likes soft lines, floral prints and lace. Think Marilyn Monroe or Taylor Swift.
  4. Dramatic — These amazing women are extravagant, eccentric and original. They like lots of color, and don’t mind being noticed for it. Think Joan Collins or Sharon Osbourne.

Now it’s up to you to decide how naughty or nice you want to be at the events you attend. Here are a few ideas of what is on the fashion radar. You take them and run with them to match your wardrobe personality.

If your holiday event leans more to the casual, try a red blazer (try a red that is more of a coral red than a blue red). Add a sequined top with your base being black ankle-pants, black flats, and then definitely spice it up with an animal-print clutch and accessorize it with a simple chain necklace and a couple of bangles.

For your New Year’s party, pair your sequined top with a pair of dark-wash denim, sparkly pumps or flats and a bedazzled clutch.

For a fancier affair, go with a gold, silver or champagne sequined-top and a coral red or black skirt. An A-line, flared or a straight skirt will be perfect, along with a coordinating blazer and sparkly earrings. The tuxedo blazer is best for the dressier look.

For a casual look, jeans or colored denim, a loose-fitting sweater, boots or ankle booties and your favorite leather bag pair well.
