Colour your wardrobe, look sexy and step out in style this festive season.

If you have waited the entire year for Christmas so that you can get dressed in your most stylised vines, then you are in luck!

This is the time to bring your A-game when it comes to winter fashion.

Finding the right outfit that perfectly balances the need to cover for the end-December chills with modern vogue requires thorough preparation.

Here are some essential tips to keep in mind while finalising your outfit for Christmas.

1. Bright colours work wonders

Christmas is the perfect occasion to get draped in bright and striking colours.

Be it warm hues such as red, pink, tangerine and fuchsia or colder tones such as blue and green, brightness is a must. Try and avoid dull colours.

2. But you can opt for the classic black dress too!

Black is the evergreen shade that can never go wrong at this time of the year.

Complement your attire with dazzling accessories such as the gold or metal bracelets, bags and necklaces which then become the quintessential Christmas outfit.

Picking the Little Black Dress for that Christmas-eve cocktail party can never fall out of vogue.

Keep these simple things in mind and you shall be the chic dresser every man worth his black Tux would want to have a dance with.

3. Keep it short and sexy

It's the season of the boots so put your best foot forward.

Get those pair of Wellingtons down and match them with the smart little black skirt that has been lying in your wardrobe; surely the way to leave an impression for the night.

This impression can be a lasting one if you can lay your hands on the off-white trench coat and wear it with a thigh high black stocking and glitzy shoes.

4. Say no to tacky, yes to elegance

The most important thing to keep in mind is that any festive outfit should be classy and elegant.

Many people make the mistake of over doing it and end up looking horribly tacky.

Stay sophisticated and that will earn you more points than anything else.

5. Strike a balance between your outfit and accessories

If you decide to go with a simple outfit, jazz it up with eye catching accessory but if your outfit is a stunning one, minimal accessorising is recommended.

Be sure to find that perfect harmony between suave, sophistication and fashion and your Christmas outfit will be the talk of the town!
