With the festive season having us secretively planning our outfits for various occasions while at work, I just thought I’d share some tips to give you more reasons to SHOP THAT LOOK and show you a few ways on how to maximise your holiday attire. This of course is so that you don’t feel too bad spending on a few more new pieces, but instead, practicing being a #smartshopper! Right?!

Well, let’s get to it!

///// Tropical print /////

This particular shirt paired with shorts or a mini skirt, would look great with awesome wedged or gladiator sandals. But, by adding black trousers it makes the shirt come across more serious and appropriate for the workplace (well, depends on where you work or who you work for), or meetings.

Below you will see I’ve used the black jean again, and that is simply to tone down the holiday/casual feel of this outfit. This maxi dress can also be paired with a black pencil skirt should you prefer that over pants.

Did I cut the slit into the dress, you may ask… No, I have not. But it’s designed as a wrap dress but sewn together in the waist area.

One more trick awaits you!!!

Play around and try to get two or more looks out of your wrap dress either during the holidays or after.

p.s I decided to pair the tropical print shoes to keep that holiday vibe!
