How to Glam Up Your Outfit Without Spending a Fortune!

chickdowntown*With the holidays right around the corner, it’s great to have a few options in your closet for those last minute party invites. Chick Downtown is here to share a few ideas on how to look fabulous for the holidays without spending a fortune! Be sure to check their online boutique with the  hottest clothing and accessories for fashionistas around the world.

The easiest way I can think of to dress up a basic black dress or suit is with red lipstick! A great shade of red that flatters your skin tone can take a simple black outfit from day to night. If you don’t have that go to black dress, you’ll need one. This Black Posh Dress by Blaque Label is priced under $100 and would look great for a night out. I recommend pairing it under a jacket for a more formal event or with some fun leopard pumps for a night out with the girls.


I would also suggest having a few pairs of black tights: one opaque, one sparkly, and one bright vibrant color. A great clutch, like these by Moyna, which are also under $100, add a bit of pop to any ensemble. These accessories can also take just about every outfit from day to night. Another staple piece I love is my vintage sequin bolero. It always comes in handy when it comes to holiday dressing; I reach for it over and over again.


In summary, if I were to choose the top 5 items to have in your closet to make holiday dressing easy, I would suggest the following: a black dress (whichever kind looks best on you), black tights, a sequin or faux fur bolero, a super sparkly accessory (clutch, earrings, necklace – you really only need one to make an outfit pop), and my favorite “accessory” for the holidays are red lips and nails. Happy Holidays!!
