Although this year is incredibly different from year’s past thanks to the pandemic, it doesn’t mean there isn’t a reason to still rock Holiday looks that will sleigh all day. We’ve rounded up 10 end-of-the-year outfits and hair combinations that we’re sure will impress, even if it’s on a Zoom call.
1. Silk presses and patterns
A sleek silk press (don’t forget the heat protectant!) pairs well with a patterned midi skirt. Sandwich the skirt between bold reds, and you’re sure to turn some heads.
2. Space buns and oversized sweaters
Throw your curls up into two messy buns to give your outfit a playful look. An oversized winter sweater over a skirt shows you have style, but also care about comfort.
3. Long box braids and bright white
Box braids are a great way to protect your hair from the harsh winter cold. Pair them with a pair of white pants (which can definitely be rocked after Labor Day) and a teddy coat.
4. Ponytail and a puffy jacket
With an oversized jacket, you can keep your hair slicked back into a ponytail for dramatic effect. Jewel tones are very popular this year for the Holiday season.
5. Faux loc bun and faux fur
Throw your faux locs up into a nicely sculpted bun to keep them out of your way. Adding a furry cropped coat in a bold color will make your outfit look effortlessly chic.
6. Ombre and tartan
It’s been years since ombre hair colors became popular, and it’s still the move. Pair this simple hairstyle with a Scottish-inspired plaid outfit that shows you don’t mind a little bit of a Northernly chill.
7. Cropped with a beret
A timeless classic is the Parisian beret. It elevates any outfit to a new level of elegance and sophistication. If you rock your hair short or in a ponytail, add a beret and some neutral toned pieces to go for that European style.
8. Sleek and shiny
If you’re usually curly, a silk press can really transform your look! So, switch things up for a festive occasion by pairing your straightened hair with a glittery or shimmery dress.
9. Boho locs and animal print
What’s a more perfect pairing than crochet boho locs and some animal print to really bring out that tropical feel? Combine a neutral-colored animal print with a crop top and sexy heels for a great night out look.
10. Long ponytail and velvet crush
You might as well go all out for a party with a glorious Yaki ponytail to give your hair some length. Pair this hairstyle with a velvety two-pieced outfit in a jewel tone to stand out from the crowd.
