Christmas Jumpers

Have you got your Christmas jumper yet? They are everywhere this year and seem to be a 'fashion' thing that isn't going away anytime soon! I confess I left a little late this year to get one - lots of shops have already sold out of them. I eventually bought one from Next Outlet and it is similar to the one below, except in black:

 Here are a few more fun Christmas jumpers: 

Enjoy wearing yours this Christmas!

Red for December

As Christmas is this month, a good colour to wear for December is, you've guessed it - red!! However, a really bright, Father Christmas red will not suit every type of colouring. If you have light colouring, i.e. blonde hair, light eyes and fair skin, then wear a light red like this:

This red won't overpower your delicate colouring and we will see your face first, rather than your clothes.

If you are deep in colouring (dark hair, dark eyes, dark or olive skin) then this red would look good on you:

As a deep, you could combine this red with another deep colour such as black, purple or forest green for a sophisticated look.

People with cool colouring - ash-toned hair, pink in skin and cool blue or brown eyes, should go for the following red:

This is a blue-red as opposed to an orange red, which is warm - see below.

If you are predominantly warm - red or hair with red tones, ivory skin, warm eyes e.g. hazel, green, some blues, then this red would look great on you:

For those of you who have bright colouring, dark hair, light skin, jewel-like eyes, such as Courtney Cox or Katy Perry, then wear this red:

This is the clear, true red most often associated with Christmas, but as previously mentioned, it's not for everyone.

Lastly, if you have muted, soft colouring (you could have brown eyes/blonde hair or blue eyes/light brown hair) go for this red:

This red doesn't 'shout' at you but is beautifully blended and soft.

So, whatever you choose to wear in red this December, make sure it suits you and have fun wearing it!
