The Dominant Colors of Christmas

The dominant colors of Christmas are green, red, gold, silver, and white. There are meanings behind these colors.

  • Green is said to represent nature and hope. When the land is covered with the whiteness of snow, green represents life, a new beginning, and hope.
  • Red, on the other hand, symbolizes the blood Jesus shed for all mankind, so it speaks of love and warmth.
  • Gold speaks of wealth and of good health.
  • Silver not only signifies wealth like gold does, but it also represents clarity, perseverance, and brightness.
  • White represents cleanliness as well as purity.

Remember these colors when decorating your home for the holiday season. You will be using the traditional colors of Christmas, yes, but it is in the way you use them that will make your home Christmas decorations unique.

Glam Up Your Deck

When decorating your home, do not forget your deck. It is, after all, one of the parts of your home that people will first see, so you need to give it that holiday spirit as well. Of course, before you decorate it, you need to give it a good washing. You can scrub it clean or use a power washer to wash away the dirt and grime. You can rent a power washer if you do not have one. Find out more about power washer rentals online or visit your local hardware and see if they offer tool rental services.

Once your deck is clean, you can now give it that holiday cheer. Hang a wicker basket on the walls as well as the front door, but instead of using the usual Christmas decors, use red, yellow, and white flowers instead. Their green leaves will complete the whole Christmas look. You can use fake flowers if you want, since fresh flowers can be pretty expensive.

Do not forget to wrap the deck railing with the same decorations, too, for a continuation of the Christmas theme. It is also a great idea to put out Christmas lanterns decorated with the Christmas colors on the deck.

Glam up Your Mailbox

You should also decorate your mailbox with a topper made up juniper, moss, as well as fir for the greens and rosemary, lavender, and pansies for the other Christmas colors. Add some gold and silver Christmas balls to complete the look, and tie a red and gold ribbon around the mailbox. A decorated mailbox is a great way to greet people a Merry Christmas.

Glam Up the Interior of Your Home

Instead of using the usual Christmas ornaments for your home, why not hang pictures of your family instead. You can paste them on shimmery colorful cards, thread Christmas ribbons on top of the card, and hang them on your Christmas tree. You can also add some small handicrafts and artworks that your children made for the holiday season.

Explore Your Non-Western Clothing Choices: Three Unique Outfit Ideas For The Modern Woman

Share/Bookmark

Though the United States encourages the freedom of expression and the ability to wear whatever you want, in most situations, there has largely been a homogenization of fashion for women in the workplace. One of the reasons for this is that fashion companies tell women what they should want to wear, no very few women want to be ostracized for dressing in clothes that look dated or inelegant. Unfortunately this can rob women of their ability to express personality and personal taste, so there is a growing movement to bring unique styles and colors back to a woman’s wardrobe. If you are looking for something new and exciting to wear at work there are three outfit ideas that will make you look very unique.

Tunic Dresses

A tunic dress is a long sleeved top that is designed to cover the entire torso and extend past the waist to cover the buttocks. Most tunic dresses have a loose fit, so that there is plenty of room to move around while you are in them and to make sure that you do not overheat from the extra material. This style comes from traditional dress of the Middle East and Arab nations and has been a staple of women in these areas for centuries. In the United States they have not been as popular because American fashion has trended towards sexualization and exposure of a woman’s breasts, belly and hips, things that a tunic dress covers. With a tunic dress is that you can decide how formal or casual that you want to be based on the bottoms that you wear with it, and the numerous styles available at sites like Fashion Undercover provide plenty of tops to start with.

Kurtis

The South Asian variation of the tunic dress is called a kurti, and they can add color and sophistication to your wardrobe, all while making you stand out from the crowd. Most kurtis are made from a rectangular cut of fabric and the garment is draped over the body, with a slightly loose fit. The front and the sides can extend as low as mid-thigh, though most modern women will want to wear them cut a little higher. To give you some extra movement while you are wearing the kurti you can purchase one that has slits on the sides that allow the legs to move more freely and gives a wide range of motion. Kurtis typically come in vibrant colors and elegant styles that are perfect for the office or for going out with your friends. Must like the tunic dress, the ability to mix and match styles with different bottoms adds great versatility to the garment.

Palazzo Pants

Palazzo pants have wide, flared legs that resemble the bellbottoms of the 1970s. The fabrics are usually exceptionally soft and flowing, so that you have the greatest range of motion, but the materials are so lightweight that you might even forget that you are wearing pants altogether. The design of the pants has a slimming effect and you will find that the pants really enhance your profile when you have them on.

A unique style helps to make you stand out from those around you and helps people to remember who you are. When you add some clothing options that pull from non-Western sources you can help to find more choices that highlight your special personality.

When women come to me for advice I like to recommend that they explore Eastern fashions to find styles and colors that they might like, because these designs are likely to be more unique than something we would find at a mainstream department store.
