How to Stay Stylish Without Sacrificing Comfort This Holiday Season

The holidays can be just as frustrating as they are exciting. Itchy fabrics, tight dresses, and odd-fitting clothing can leave you feeling anything but comfy and confident. Instead of suffering through the season, use these handy hacks to keep your holiday attire stylish yet comfortable for all-day wear.

Wear Cozy Fabrics

The first step in finding the perfect stylish holiday outfit that doesn't sacrifice comfort is to select materials that don't itch or scratch. Start by choosing natural materials instead of synthetics, as natural materials are less irritating to the skin and breathe better, keeping you feeling light and fresh.

Go for something such as holiday-themed women's cotton turtlenecks instead of a synthetic blend. Another tip is to opt for cashmere over cheaper wools. The benefit is you'll have a sweater that not only feels cozier but also lasts longer.

Utilize Your Closet Staples

One way to keep snug yet trendy this holiday season is to match a few of your favorite pieces with some fun holiday flare. For example, match your favorite pair of women's black jeans with a shiny blouse and a pair of glitzy heels. The look says holiday glam without all the fuss of worrying about the perfect fit.

If you must wear that bedazzled Christmas sweater for those oh-so-jolly ugly sweater parties, avoid the itchy inside by layering a thin cotton tee underneath. The result is your ability to have some silly holiday fun without feeling like you might claw your shirt off.

Dress for the Weather

We've all worn that little black dress when the weather outside was more than a little chilly. There's nothing that puts a damper on the holidays quite like shivering in your best dress.

This year, stay warm and cozy by wearing a thick pair of wool leggings underneath your dress. You can even put a dash of sparkle in those leggings for an extra festive feel. Stay stylish as you wait for your ride with winter coats that keep you snug as a bug while maintaining a sophisticated edge. By pumping up the classiness of your look, you can stay warm and stylish this holiday season without having to worry about the cold nipping at your heels.

Find a Fit that Doesn't Pinch

When it comes to holiday parties and fancy outings, you want to look and feel good. If you'd rather not tug and pull at a dress all night, choose something that's fashion-forward, but not too fitted, such as a slouchy women's tunic top with a pair of skinny jeans.

Keep the proportions right so you don't feel like you're swimming or squeezing out of your stylish holiday threads. If you opt for a plunging neckline, counter your look on the bottom with wide-legged trousers. On the flip side, big, cozy sweaters look chic with jeggings.

Pump up the Pizzazz With Accessories

Comfortable yet stylish clothing for the holidays doesn't have to break the bank. Utilize fun, flashy accessories to pump up the holiday spirit of any outfit. Glitzy, chunky necklaces can accentuate any neckline, while a fun pair of holiday earrings bring out your festive spirit.

Scarves and hats can also accent any holiday attire. A fun, flirty hat or hair accessory gives a pop of personality to any outfit. Think outside the box with stylish brooches, watches, and even a glammed-out manicure to put a festive twist on your look.

Keep Your Fancy Footwork Feeling Fresh

Ditch the stilettos this season and choose a chunky heel instead. You'll still show off those flashy gams but without the uncomfortable wobble. Chunky heels bring more stability with your step and are far more comfortable to wear. Even a chic pair of flats can add comfort without sacrificing fashion; one hot trend we can't get enough of is flats with an ankle strap.

Bring on the boots with women's winter boots that keep the cold out and the fashion in. Wear higher boots with skinny jeans or wool leggings to show off your snowy style.

This holiday season, don't lose your sanity with uncomfortable clothing. Use these handy hacks to keep your style on-trend this season without sacrificing comfort. Spruce up your favorite staple pieces with fun, festive accessories, or wear a cozy layer underneath that ugly Christmas sweater. No matter your holiday style, you don't have to be uncomfortable while you rock the season.
