Don we now our gay apparel: A guide to this season’s trends

30 Nov

Festive and fashionable

With the holiday season now upon us, dinner parties and photo ops are also in full swing. And with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter the essentials for documenting such events, partygoers might be interested in what’s trending this season to stay ahead of the internet shame game. (Why is it that pictures I’m tagged in are never as flattering as those I post myself?)

My new fave: Covergirl lipstick in #360 Euphoria. The best berry for my own skin tone.

Tis the season to be berry

When the weather gets cold, the makeup goes dark, and lips are no exception. This time of year is all about the berry lipstick. As viviannadoesmakeup.com so accurately writes, “The [berry lip is the] perfect colour choice for those who need an easy way in to something more daring on the lips, with its natural raspberry tones that compliment all complexions, whiten teeth and make things look a bit wintery – in a good way.”

Heedless of the wind and weather

Wyoming residents understand: looking put together is nearly impossible when nature is bent on pulling you apart. So we put our hair in ponytails and cover up from head to toe, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look good doing it. Refinery29 has some great tutorials on dressing up the everyday pony, and Polyvore has endless inspiration when it comes to clothes for every season. It may not be easy in Wyoming, but it’s possible. After all, sweater weather is better weather!

Walking in a winter wonderland

Perhaps the most important aspect of fashion in Wyoming wintertime: boots. Snow boots, rain boots, cowboy boots, comfy boots, leather boots—boots. They may not always be visible in snapshots, but a good pair of boots is the difference between walking with confidence and slipping on the sidewalk.

The perfect pair of boots is hard to find, and often out of budget, but with holiday sales at their peak, your dreams might be in reach. A few good places to look for boots include Kohl’s, Target, and the Frontier Mall, but my favorite place to spend time (and money) is Hautelook.com. Similar to Zulily, events are only on the website for 3 days, but host astonishing markdowns during the sale period. Styles and products can run out quickly, so sign up for emails to make sure you stay on top of the sales.

Nailed it!

Last but certainly not least, the perfect accessory is at your fingertips. Specifically, your fingernails. Whether it’s a clear coat or a gel mani, putting something on your nails gives your entire look a polished effect. (Yeah, I went there.) Bonus points if you can match your nails to your classy berry lip, or offset a dark pout with taupe. Let your inner diva shine!

Now you know

So now you’re all caught up on what’s hot this year for Christmastime. Let us know in the comments below: what are your favorite trends for sweater weather? Is there something “hot” you think is “not?”

Just remember to be yourself and you couldn’t be any more gorgeous. Happy holidays!
