Because I Shop Too Much for Holiday 2012

Fashion Experts Dish On The Top Trends For The Upcoming Season

The temperatures are starting to drop and before you know it you will be looking for something special to wear to holiday parties, family gatherings and other seasonal events. This year, fight the urge to go with the traditional LBD and opt for something a little more stylish and of the moment. Fashion experts and founders of the wildly popular website, Because I Shop Too Much, Kaitlyn and Lisa Fergus have some tips for what to wear for the winter season.

Cold Shoulder: A dress, tunic or top that shows off one or both shoulders is unexpectedly seductive without being overtly sexy.

Black Out: Always flattering and chic, an all-black ensemble such as a pant suit or leather leggings with a noir top can be made festive by adding a touch of satin or rhinestone embellishment.

Totally Tiered: Festive and fun, a tiered mini is the quintessential party dress that looks great on anyone.

All About Oxblood: This year’s hottest color, oxblood is a gorgeously lush color and perfect seasonal hue.

Bootie Call: Pair ankle booties with a skirt, tights and sweater or cuffed jeans, a sequin tank and a blazer.

The LRD: The little red dress, (your lbd’s sultry sister) is the key to showing holiday spirit and some killer leg.

Seems Shifty: Long-sleeve shift dresses compliment many body types and printed styles create a bold statement that is best complimented with a statement necklace or oversized jewel earring posts.

The Cat’s Meow: A leopard print sweater or blouse is perfect for skinny jeans, colored or dark denim, especially when paired with a tall pair of riding boots.

Luscious Lips: Red lipstick is a must!
