Have a Very Berry Holiday!
For the last few seasons, the catwalks - and street fashion for women, especially - have been awash in bright & delicious berry shades, making it easy to perk up your cold-weather look! Your problem? Choices, choices & more choices! Do you go for a snazzy cowlneck pullover? Or perhaps a print skirt or color-block dress? Or maybe embrace brights full-on in a wonderful winter coat? Whatever you choose, the secret to pulling off a bold berry hue like a fashion pro is to let the shade do the talking while keeping the rest of your ensemble sophisticated & neutral with elegant shades such as rich charcoal, blackish-burgundy or old-money taupe. However, do be sure to have some fun with your accessories & makeup by carrying the berry'liciousness through to your ears & wrists, definitely your lips and perhaps even your tips. (Besides, wouldn't a pampering mani would be just the right antidote to all the holiday madness?)
