MANILA, Philippines - More and more people hold get-togethers and parties with relatives and friends as Christmas day nears -- a perfect time for people to show off their great sense of style.
There's still, of course, the challenge of not showing off too much skin, especially since the holiday season is characterized by cold weather and occasional rains.
After young Russian designer Kira Plastinina, French high street brand Promod gave 5 tips on how to up the style ante this Christmas.
It suggested ensembles that include lace, structured jackets, and killer boots so women can achieve a chic holiday look without catching a cold:
Style tip #1
Lace up those legs with ultra-soft and tres chic tights.
Pair them with the right ankle boots and top with a fashionable pullover for effortless Parisian flair.
Style tip #2
A gray pleated skirt with lace detail will work wonders if paired with a turtleneck and funky ankle boots.
Throw in a structured leather jacket and be ready to rock parties with this ensemble.
Style tip #3
Make heads turn with a beige lace dress paired either with knee-high boots or nude pumps.
Add a little edge to the ensemble with a camel leather jacket.
Style tip #4
A sophisticated coat will look extraordinary with gloves and a black lace skirt this cold season.
Style tip #5
A long-sleeved lace top paired with shorts, tights and knee-high boots will make you celebrate Christmas in true French fashion.
