Remember the classic Christmas jingle…12 Days of Christmas? Imagine for 12 straight days receiving something from your stylista fashion must-have, a grooming service, or the sexiest hairstyle 2019 has to offer.
Windy City Times remixed the jingle … and we did in style, of course!
On the twelfth day of Christmas my stylist gave to me a Burberry button-down, one bomber jacket, 50 Tom Ford lipsticks, one pair of lashes, four fuzzy sweaters, three pairs of pumps, two feeder braids, Rihanna lingerie, one pair of thigh boots, three fanny packs, two Gucci belts, and a mani and a pedi.
One Burberry button-down: Burberry has a line of button-down shirts and blouses for the corporate, the cool, and the classy. The style has become popular and has been rocked from different ends of the style spectrum; from singer/actor Nick Jonas to rapper Pitbull.
Bomber jackets usually hit the scene right around fall season, so if you're an early holiday shopperyou won't have any trouble finding them in stores and online in the spring. When bomber jackets arrive on the seasonal runway, they stick around for the Chicago winter chill. Some popular styles going into the new year are leather, camo print, and fur bomber jackets.
In September of last year, Tom Ford released 100 new lipsticks, named after 50 boys and 50 girls, from Ford's 100 closest friends. The Tom Ford Boys and Girls Collection is offering half the fun this Christmas with their 50-piece collection set. The lipsticks are featured in mattes, sheers, ultra-rich and metallic. Shades include infamous names like Cardi B and Jagger. Shop online at TomFord.com .
The act of natural-looking installation is the key. A faux pair of eyelashes can change your look! Faux lashes are available at Ulta Beauty and Sephora. Either checkout a quick video on YouTube to install your own or have them installed by a professional. Faux lashes enhance eyes and compliment hairstyles.
The ugly sweater look went out the door with last year's ugly sweater party. This year, fuzzy sweaters are seasonal must have that comes in nice varieties. Local Target Stores, Urban Outfitters, and Victoria's Secret are just a few places to find them. From crop top styles to fuzzy oversized sweaters, this style is and incredibly trendy this year and unapologetically unique.
Pumps are for sexy occasions, and your stylist demands your sexy this holiday season. Pumps from brands like Christian Louboutin's red bottoms and Manolo Blahnik's bright hues, a nice pump can be for anywhere, and anyone. Strut yourself right on into the fifth day of Christmas.
The two French braids have come a long way from that quick hairstyle before bed. Feed in braids feature a special new technique by adding in braiding hair extension to natural hair strand by strand. The complex bread looks its best with just two on each side of the head, and celebrities including singers Ciara and Kelly Rowland has rocked this look.
Rihanna has launched a lingerie line ( SavagexFenty ) that, for sure, reflects bad girl Ri Ri, as she's known on Instagram. The line features an array of lace, satin and silk bras, panties and one-piece outfitsfor moments when you want to slip into something a little more comfortable. Shop online at savage.com .
Nearly not a thing says sexy like a nice pair of thigh boots. Pair your thigh boots with a mini dress, an oversized sweater, or a pair of skinny jeans tucked inside your boots. This look immediately elongates the legs and lifts your bottom. Local stores including Forever 21 and Akira has an array of styles to offer.
The variation of the purse never seems to amazebut the fanny pack somehow being stylish does. Suddenly, high-end brands like Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton have all released fanny packs in their bag and purse collections. Even cooler is how some are worntraditionally around the waist, or as a crossbody around the chest.
Seems like everyone is waist deep in Gucci Belts nowadays. As much as this one accessory can add poise and elegance to an outfit, it could also add a modern, urban look, too. Accessorize with a Gucci belt around your bodycon your dress, jeans and sweaters this holiday season.
…and a mani and a pedi! Your stylists wouldn't just have you looking good without nice nails and toes. Visit any local nail salon in the Chicago area for a natural or UV gel manicure and pedicure. Prices can start as low as $35.
