Here are some helpful holiday tips from some of HSN’s top 2010 holiday season guests and other gifting suggestions from various HSN brand partners including Mariah Carey.
1: Never underestimate the power of sparkle! Pair an eye-catching piece with even the most casual of items to take any outfit into party mode.
2: Rely on the little black dress, but find one with a unique twist, like my Sexy Snake-Print LBD for $79.95
3: Choose one statement piece of jewelry to create conversation at any cocktail party.
Reem Acra’s Holiday Dressing Tips
1: When picking the perfect holiday outfit, opt for a special top over a simple bottom. A silky shirt with an embellished accent will draw attention to your face and give you that little extra glow.
2: Sequins are a tried-and-true party option. When in doubt, find a piece with just the right amount of sparkle to achieve your own “go to” look of understated elegance.
3: When going straight from the office to your company holiday party, plan ahead. Wear a work appropriate dress during the day and dress it up for evening with something eye-catching like my patterned sequin jacket.
