Christmas is just around the corner and with it lunches and dinners with family and friends; the reunions, the burdens of buying gifts and the “what do I wear” so repeated year after year. Sometimes in advance and others, if not the majority, thought up at the last minute and opting for the party classic: sequins. Although they are always a good option, many times it ends up being somewhat repetitive and we end up always wearing the same look year after year because we don’t know of another formula that works and we don’t have a lot of time to do more research. As it is better to be safe than sorry because we don’t have anything decent to put in the closet, four renowned stylists They give us the keys to dress (and succeed) this Christmas and make this year different.
One of the great qualities that we look for when deciding on the look is that it does not make us complicate ourselves too much. For this, Leticia Riestra, stylist for actresses like Blanca SuárezCandela Peña or Ángela Cremonte, bet on the black with a midi dress, for example, that “works for everyone,” says the stylist. “You can add jewelry, heels, etc. The ideal is to go for simplicity and complement it with accessories,” says Riestra. A good option is the dress Fitted Midi Tube Dress from & Other Stories (€79), which stands out for its simple elegance. It has a fitted design with some structure in the chest, which makes it really flattering. Also, being strapless makes it incredibly easy to create a spectacular look thanks to accessories.

David Rivas, Eduardo Casanova’s stylist, Álex García, Pol Granch and Alfonso Bassave, among others, affirm that “a basic is an LBD (‘Little Black Dress’ or little black dress) with a bit of ‘strass’ or a jeweled shoe” and it is enough for a success insured. “If there is something that goes better with a party dress, it is some maxi earrings that contrast with the color of the sequins. They give that fun touch to styling,” he adds. Among this year’s trends, Sofía Stein, stylist for actresses like Paula UseroMaría Botto, Antonia San Juan and Carmen Climent, states that “the best thing to do is go for maxi earrings or with a long XXLas well as rings that stand out both for their size and for their decorations or gemstones”. This season, zara does not stop launching party novelties, among which we find these golden earrings with crystal appliqué and shiny fringes (€15.95. Ref: 4548/460).

For Arturo Argüelles, stylist of the singer Edurne or the actress Michelle Calvó, it is best to choose “shades such as black, burgundy, fuchsia or gold, depending on the tastes of each person, and accompany them with accessories in the same colors or looking for contrast”.This autumn-winter is marked by the color pink, an original trend that we must take into account for these upcoming holidays. The Spanish firm Celia B. has one of the perfect and most fun sequined two-piece outfits to wear this Christmas (top: €198.21).
