10 Holiday Outfits by Helena’s Boudoir

green short dressHolidays are here!!! We’ve decorated our homes, I have provided you with a beauty guide and it is about time to show you some holiday outfits.

I chose 10 holiday outfits to present to you. They are all easy to do and easy to wear combinations and ideas for your office parties, for going out during the holidays, for receiving people at your house or for visiting relatives and friends. Some of them you can also select for the New Year’s Eve parties, but I am going to post another article about dressing for New Year’s!

And a little advice: do not let holiday depression get to you, as it does to many people! Enjoy your life, go out or stay at home but above all try to be thankful for all the tiny things that exist in your life. Life is short and we must take the best advantage of it!!!

1)Black trousers with a blouse

The easiest outfit of all. A pair of black trousers is a must have in every woman’s closet. So put it on, add a beautiful blouse and you have a day to night elegant holiday outfit!black trousers blue print top

2)Black pencil skirt with a top

A black pencil skirt is also a must have. We all have it! Add a top in a festive colour, a pair of high heels and your smile and you are ready! Simple as that!helena in red and black by penny sabbado

3) Monochrome pencil skirt with a blouse

A monochrome pencil skirt is a special piece of clothing. Style it with a white blouse, as I did, or with a black one and you have a very stylish, trendy and feminine outfit! High heels are necessary here too!floral skirt white shirt

4)Short brocade skirt with a blouse

For those of you who like short skirts and want a youthful outfit, this is the perfect choice. Style your skirt with a light coloured blouse (I chose a light pink one) or with a black one for a more formal look. Add either a pair of high heels or a pair of flats and off you go!rainbow skirt white shirt

5) Black lace short skater skirt with a black blouse

A total black look, always in fashion! Lace is a trend for the holidays and this outfit is girly and playful. The golden belt and the red pumps really make a statement. You can wear this outfit for a New Year’s Eve party too!!black lace dress

6)A short straight dress

An elegant and simple dress yet very feminine and stylish. Add a special pair of shoes and a coat and you have another day to night holiday outfit!helena in flower patterned dress by penny sabbado

Simple and full of youth, the perfect outfit for going out for a walk or for a drink!helena in chequred dress by penny sabbado

Beauty Guide for the Winter and the Holidays

helena with make upDecember is already here and with less than 20 days remaining for Christmas I think it’s about time for a change in our appearance, that is our hair and nails! A change of hairstyle or hair-color or both makes us feel more refreshed and feminine and it definitely does wonders to our psychology. Moreover an inspired manicure makes our hands look more elegant and beautiful.

So I decided to dedicate this post to beauty!!! When someone takes a look at us, he or she does not only look at our outfits but also at our hair and our hands. It is no use being dressed in designer and expensive clothes of our hair are not styled properly and our nails are all eaten up….

helena in mirror impressive hairstyleLet’s start with the hair. All hair lengths are in fashion either short or medium or very long, with layers, bangs or braids. Keep in mind that bangs are very “in” and they make us look a lot younger.

Elle and Cosmopolitan suggest some very interesting trendy hairstyles, so have a look and be inspired!helena long hair

Choosing a hair-color is another issue for many women. I am sure that many of you change you hair-color regularly. This winter all colors are fashionable with an emphasis on soft earth colors like brown, auburn and red. But we also see more extreme hair-colors like pink, purple or light blue highlights!

Elle suggests some new hair colors for the winter and Marie Claire insists on auburn shades.

If you dare trying something extreme have a look at what Redbook and Fashionisers suggest!helena's hairstyle

After selecting a haircut and a hair-color you only have to choose an elegant hairstyle for your going out during the holiday season.

Harper’s Bazaar has some very useful ideas about your holiday hair styling and I think it’s about time to pay a visit at your hairdresser’s.

Nails are next!! For an every day manicure Marie Claire presents the best nail colours for the winter.helena nail art

For those of you who want something out of the ordinary I would suggest the three-dimensional sweater nail art as shown by Popsugar.

For a manicure for the holidays have a look at what Glamour suggests.

As for your holiday makeup Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Seventeen present very interesting and beautiful options. Have a look and choose what you like best!!!

I hope that you find my selections helpful enough… And it’s about time to make your next appointment at the hairdresser’s and at the beauty salon!!!

I want you all look amazing and stunning for the holidays!!!!!!helena face
