Holiday Outfits with Pizzaz
Before buying items you won’t wear often, set a budget and stick to it.
Don’t write off stores that you think are just for the young; that’s where the bargains are.
When it comes to glitter and sequins, stick to only one item—or a maximum of two.
Think creatively: a mini dress as a tunic over pants; a sparkly scarf as a belt.
