How to: Look cute on Christmas
Even if you hate red or would rather spend the entire night in your fave jeans, you gotta suck it up and pull on a cheery outfit. Be sweet to your mom and dad and simply pull on something a li’l fancy on your own.

Keep the accessories low-key
Wacky tights, towering heels and studs are best left at home. Instead, pull on a bracelet Gram gave ya or wear a simple necklace that is special to you (like one with an initial charm). If the weather’s icky, stomp over in your best boots and then slip on some ballet flats.

Pin back your hair
If your bangs are a li’l grown out, pop on a headband or use some clips to get your locks outta your face. You’re likely to be posing for a lot of pics and you’ll get sick of hearing “get your bangs outta your face.” It’ll save ya a ton of exasperated sighs later on.
