Ah, Christmas; the time of year where we hear Michael Buble’s familiar crooning everywhere, cueing us to deck our halls with boughs of holly. As we come together with family and friends to celebrate the end of yet another year, the happiest time of the year also brings about the arduous task of gift-shopping. In this two-part Christmas special, we will share with you our essential, “one location-one kill” Christmas Gift Guide 2017 to spread good cheer to all your loved ones.

Christmas is the best excuse – we mean – season to get your glitter on and bling out! Style your jewels with a mini skirt and you’re good to go for your long list of Christmas parties.
Style Tip: While top-to-toe in prints is the way of fashionable folks, you’d want to steer clear of dressing fully in glitter and sparkles. Instead, choose a statement piece to be your “something-shiny” and avoid looking like a walking Christmas tree.

For the guys, we say “go big or go home”. Up the ante on your Christmas outfit with a fun Christmas-themed sweater and be the life of the party. Or if you’re not feeling up for it, keep it subtle with Christmas socks to keep the festivities for your outfit on the down-low.
