Christmas is next Friday! Is that insane or what? Maybe it’s just me but it seems like the month has literally flashed before my eyes. I’m still finishing up the wrapping the last couple presents for the kiddos and I’m pretty excited to relax and celebrate the holidays. Cody and I like to have subtle coordination when we go out for holiday parties. Here’s a few quick and easy tips on how to coordinate your holiday outfits without looking too cheesy.
1) Subtle Color Accents: Over doing bright colors like red or green comes off too strong. Try mixing in a burgundy or gold as an alternative to the typical holiday red.
2) Interesting Textiles: Another chic way to coordinate with your hubby or boyfriend without looking too matchy is by mixing in some cool textiles to your outfit. Go for something in the same color scheme. For this look I repeated the color from his tie in my shoes with a suede pump.
3) Dress for the Occasion: Looking like you are both going to the same party is half the battle. Seems like guys like to keep it simple and dress down so encourage your guy to get fancy with you. It’s fun to feel festive together and tell me if I’m wrong there’s something sexy about a guy in a suit 😉

    Thanks for the help. My wife and I have realized that we dress too casual and need to get some style tips together. I agree with your emphasis to “dress for the occasion.” It sounds so simple, but still stresses me at time. How much variety do you recommend having in our wardrobes?
