Take Your Holiday Dressing Up a Notch, Part 2

When I post photos of gorgeous vintage evening gowns and party dresses here on my blog or on my Facebook or Pinterest pages, one of the most common reactions I get is, "Why don't we dress up like this any more?" It is a shame that our society has become so casual that a pair of jeans and a t-shirt will suffice for most social occasions. Instead of bemoaning that fact, however, why not become part of a change back toward more formal dressing? An easy way to start is to amp up what you wear to all the holiday parties and get togethers you'll be attending in the next month. This week, I'll be looking at ways to accomplish that.

A great way to add drama to your holiday party wardrobe is to wear a hat.  I know, I know.  It takes guts to wear a hat these days.  But I can assure you that when wearing a hat you'll exude confidence and allure.  Every man in the room will think you are interesting and want to talk to you.  Every woman in the room will envy your sense of style and wish that she had done the same.  And you'll hear the phrase, "I love your hat!" over and over and over again.  Try it!
