What to wear to your holiday parties

The glitter of multicolored lights and tinsel hung on window panes herald the holidays, and with that distinct chill in the air is the warm promise of gaiety - parties, here and there. 

Where some fetes would be simple, in-office celebrations, others may be more intricate after-work events that would require a more serious wardrobe attention. Well, the latter takes a lot of planning and is set well ahead of time so you have a chance to get ready, and spend more, I suppose.

Office parties for some companies are usually held during the working hours which of course doesn’t really require you to pomp up unless you were told otherwise. As I’ve said, it’s the after-work shindigs that really draw the fun and allow you to dress up and relax among your office peers. But, hang on Cinderella, before you let your inner fairy godmother loose and blind everyone with your dazzling transformation.

When it comes to dressing up in a professional environment, there is a certain degree of decorum that has to be observed, and too much show of skin is a no-no. 

Raise those necklines and lower those hemlines! 

Sounds prude? It’s all for good reason. Well for one, you don’t want to be fidgeting with your clothes when the boss starts talking with you.

You can still look sexy, but classy at the same time. 

If you’re keen on what’s latest in fashion and what celebrities are going for this 2019, there’s a growing interest in black silk skirts, long satin dresses, animal-print dresses, and puffy-sleeve dresses as seen on the ramp during the Fashion Week

Now, silk skirts and satin dresses would need a smooth finish for a total complementary look. Silouex’s high-waist shaper shorts and panties tuck those love handles in from the bust down and allow the fabric to cling to your body seamlessly minus the bumps and panty lines.

Also, sheer festive colored blouses over turtlenecks and an oversized coat are paired with tiered skirts or leggings for the much colder season.

Planning your party getup with leggings as your focal point has its challenges though. For some people, leggings are just way too casual or worse, inappropriate. But, if you choose your top carefully and accentuate your attire with the matching accessories, you’re on track.

Leggings have been around for quite some time, but they were mostly associated with sportswear. The rise of athleisure changed all that, merging functionality and fashion together, resulting in a new trend that was practical, comfortable, and chic. So whether you are at work or at play, this bottom wear does it all. Its presence on the Chanel Spring/Summer 2019 runway gives it credibility as a fashion statement. 

Which one to choose though?  There are leggings and there are compression tights. Which one works best?

Basically, there’s not that much difference, the main one being the weight of the fabric. Leggings tend to be a bit heavier and would often be worn as a substitute to pants. Your regular tights and leggings are often worn for fashion, whereas compression tights or leggings are worn for some medical reason or worn by athletes to enhance their performance.

Compression leggings were initially worn to inhibit varicose veins and other vein diseases from developing into conditions such as deep vein thrombosis. They are also worn by travelers to prevent those types of vein diseases.

The choice is yours. You can always go for the simplicity of the ordinary leggings or go the extra mile and choose compression leggings with its health benefits.

Silouex’s high-waisted compression leggings is all that and more. Form flattering, it lengthens your legs, flattens your stomach and gives that butt a lift. And if you’re not keen on leggings and want something different, the shaper shorts and panties are perfect undergarments for your body-hugging dresses and skirts this party season. 

In the spirit of the holidays, and Black Friday not too far off, Silouex is going to hold a Black Friday sale. Now is the best time to secure your compression leggings and shapewear!
