    1. To pick your perfect outfit, figure out which colors look best together.

    Whether you're stressing about a look for Thanksgiving, the office holiday party, or New Year's Eve, make mixing and matching super simple by pairing up the right hues.

    2. And stick to colors that make sense for the season.

    Look for shades that have darker undertones for the perfect holiday vibe.

    3. If you're looking to get *festive* with a plaid, make sure you know which one.

    Knowing your plaids will make shopping SO much easier.

    4. The same thing goes for knowing your skirt silhouettes...

    Godet skirts are pretty and formal, perfect for your upcoming events.

    5. And dresses, too...

    A classic sheath dress is perfect for dressing up or down around the holidays, especially if you're going to be traveling.

    6. And even collars.

    Ruffle and tie-neck collars are super romanic while tuxedo and notched are slightly more classic.

    7. If you're going to rock a button-up, master the art of rolling your sleeves.

    The art of cuffing is truly amazing. Read more about the tutorial on Who What Wear.

    8. If you're wearing boots with your holiday look, tuck them in like a pro.

    Stay warm and cozy AF.

    9. Before you go shoe shopping, add these terms to your arsenal.

    "T-strap peep-toe D'Orsay platform" is a lot more concise than "Heels that aren't too high (but are high enough) and won't kill my feet, but also have a strap so my foot doesn't fall out if I slip on ice."

    10. To filter your shoe search even more, know exactly what heel shape you're looking for.

    Now you can clarify that you want an Italian heel, not a pin heel.

    11. Learn how to iron your shirts ~efficiently~ so you don't show up to your mom's house looking like a wrinkled mess.

    Your fam expects more from you.

    12. Find the perfect necklace depending on your neckline.

    Since a cowl neckline has more interest, keep the necklace small and simple. For a décolletage-bearing neckline (like a V-neck), you can opt for something bolder.

    13. And if you're shopping for necklaces online, know what length to get.

    You know that necklace you're eyeing on Etsy that'll go perfect with your Christmas outfit? Make sure the length is *just* right.

    14. In a pinch, you can turn your dress into a skirt.

    Maybe you lost your luggage or you spilled wine on your spare outfit? I know this isn't an ideal solution, but when the going gets tough...

    15. And lastly, know how to remove stains so that you don't ruin your clothes within a few hours.
