December marks the start of one of the craziest seasons of the year. Between Christmas parties, social gatherings, and family get-togethers, you’re bound to be busy socializing. And you know what else that entails? Dressing up.
If you’re the lazy type who can’t be bothered to style an entire outfit, it doesn’t mean you have to stay home, or party in your usual shirt-and-jeans combo. So, we’ve put together this quick guide to help you stay looking stylish during the holiday season with minimal effort.
Red is effortlessly festive—a versatile, bold color you can wear at any time of the year. If you don’t want to think too much about the outfit you’re wearing, then you can’t go wrong with red. You can try to pull off a head-to-toe red outfit like Eva Longoriabut if that’s not your style, then having just one red item of clothing can elevate your look instantly—whether it’s your top, shoes, or statement bag.

An up and coming trend this holiday season, fur coats and vests can make your outfit look a bit more luxurious. They can be worn with jeans or leggings, long-sleeved shirts or turtlenecks, flats or heels—and you’ll still look like awesome. Although a little on the high-end range, this faux fur coat from John Lewis can help you live out your winter wonderland dreams like no other.
Dress to impress—literally

Dresses might not be the most practical option if you’re braving the winter cold, but you can still make it work. Play with fabrics by choosing a dress type that’s comfy, like a sweater dress. Alternatively, you could just opt to wear tights to cover your legs. The maxi dresses on Woman Within come in just the right length to ensure that you remain stylish yet warm wherever you go. They’re also easy to layer with coats, or with thermal wear underneath without worrying about feeling bulky.
Go with a pair of bright, pointed flats

Are you going to a formal event with your co-workers or a casual night out with friends? Either way, you’re probably stressing over what shoes to wear. Trainers are the comfy, no-fail option, but heels will add a much-needed flair. Why not go for something that is both stylish and comfortable instead? For this reason, a pair of flats should do the trick. Make sure to pick a vibrant pair, like these , to add to the festivity.
Finish it off with a statement accessory

No outfit would be complete without accessories. You could go for a touch of elegance, like a watch or this silver beaded bag from Lovers + Friends. On the other hand, you might also want to make a statement with large earrings, or an extra sparkly bangle. That way, it’ll carry your entire outfit—just be sure not to go overboard.
“Lazy” dressing may mean wearing less, but it certainly doesn’t mean not looking at your best. Minimalism never hurt anyone.
