The title of this post speaks for itself. Christmas is indeed nearing! It’s very breezy and cold outside! Even more with all the pine trees around me! Christmas won’t be the same without the cold weather and huge pine trees! Plus the sun sets much earlier than usual, have you noticed?
And since the holidays are getting nearer and nearer day by day (10 days to go and it’s Christmas!!! Simbang Gabi in two days!), I’m getting more and more excited! Lots of delicious and happy food, friends and family reunions, colorful lights and Christmas songs playing everywhere… all the cheers, gift-giving and Christmas spirit, I just love this season! Much more with the newly-released Unica Hija 2013 Holiday Collection! If you haven’t seen it yet, why???!!! Haha! See my video blog post about this here. Plus, you can check out http://www.unicahija.com.ph to view the entire holiday collection.
Anyway, relative to this post, here’s a quick fashion tip for you. I know that some of you might hesitate wearing horizontal stripes, moreso wide stripes, for the reason that they would make you look bigger. Well, here’s the thing. I never believed in the “no horizontal stripes rule”. Some horizontal stripes can make you look bigger, some may not, depending on how the horizontal stripes are designed on your outfit. Actually, wide stripes are so versatile – more relaxed, mature and elegant! Flattering styles are the key to wearing stripes! Take this Unica Hija dress I’m wearing as example. Bright pink all over with a touch of black wide horizontal stripes perfectly situated on the dress (chest, two end linings). Can be worn to work, casual days or a fun night out by spicing it up with fun jewelry/accessories and a great pair of shoes! As this can be worn for multiple purposes, definitely, this dress is a great investment! In addition, be it summer or rainy, a dress like this can surely complement with any season. Remember, sometimes, it’s really all about simplicity! It’s best not to introduce too many colors (usually not more than three) used in the stripes for your outfit.
