Rania's Style Advice for the New Year!

Winter is a very VERY hard season to dress for: layers, coats, boots, bulky sweaters OY! And we should know, we live in a city where winter lasts a looooooong looooooooooooog to help all of you who have this same dilemma, here is Rania Abdulla, Ottawa Stylist Extraordinaire, with some great style tips for the winter and the New Year...

HSN has partnered with an extensive roster of celebrities and experts including IMAN and Reem Acra to bring viewers tips and tricks, unique stories, gift giving suggestions and exciting products in time for the holidays.

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.

IMAN’s Key Wardrobe Staples for the Holiday Season..

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.

IMAN Global Chic Cabochon and Crystal 6-3/4" Cuff Bracelet - $64.95

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.
