I know I am probably the exception...for a lot of people, the holidays are a source of stress and deciding what to wear to an office party, cocktail night at a friend's house or even (especially) Christmas dinner with the family can add to that stress. So, in light of that, I thought I'd share some of my holiday style "rules" with everyone!
Miss M's Holiday Style Secrets:
1. Sparkle and shine at the holidays are always a good thing...but in moderation. Pick ONE sparkly item of clothing or jewelry instead of multiple items that will make you look like a Christmas tree. For example, a sparkly miniskirt with a white blouse.

2. Lace and velvet are classics for winter and perfect for the holiday season. A lace blouse is both romantic yet modern and a velvet blazer is easy to throw over your normal work outfit for a mid-week gift exchange.

3. Wear "holiday" colours like red in a classic shape dress to avoid looking gaudy. Think fitted with a great belt in either sleeveless or 3 quarter length sleeves. If you don't like red, then think winter wonderland with something white.

4. Above all: wear what you are comfortable in that flatters your body and enjoy the season!
