Fresh Colour Palettes for the Holiday Season

Happy December Everyone!

I LOVE the holiday season!  While this year it feels like the holiday season came very quickly, I am still enjoying all of the ugly Christmas sweaters and cookie recipes that are currently flooding my Instagram account.  While I won’t be hosting a holiday meal this year, there are a few colour palettes that I am loving for the holiday season.  These colours work for both table settings and holiday fashion, enjoy!

Winter White

There is something so beautiful about an all white outfit or table setting.  It is so simple and delicate yet a monochrome table setting or outfit has a lot of impact.  A touch of greenery on the table helps to tie the entire image together as in the picture above.  For an all white outfit it’s best to keep it simple.  A full white suit or white denim paired with white t-shirt are great ways to pull off this look without stressing about it.

Pewter and Gold

Pale Pink and Deep Red

IMG_7560This colour combination tends to be used more for Valentine’s Day celebrations, but I love how fresh it is for the holiday season.  The deeper red feels traditional and rich, while the pale pink gives it a modern and unexpected twist.  I especially love the outfit below with the pale pink pants and deep red sweater, it features this colour palette so beautifully.  I am obsessed!

‘Tis The Season To Sparkle and Shine

Aside from the fantastic food, one of my favourite things about the holiday season is the fabulous fashion.  Beautiful reds, glittering golds and shimmering sparkle suddenly become acceptable everyday attire during the festive season and I love it! While holiday dressing is not for the faint of heart, it is the perfect opportunity to have some fashionable fun and add something bold and fresh to your wardrobe.  Here is some festive fashion inspiration if you are still searching for the perfect holiday look:
