Adorn your tree with glimmering gold and Tiffany blue shades: Although the essential red and green décor may instantly bring Christmas to mind, switching to soft metallics and pastels can create a modern and ultra chic tree. Stick to shiny gold ribbons, pale blue garlands and silver trinkets for a beautiful tree sure to impress your inner fashionista.

Turn to playful pom-poms for a new twist on garlands: Traditional tinsel may be making a splash everywhere, but updates on this holiday classic are certainly a trendy move. Try trimming your evergreen with gold Christmas lights and strings of fuzzy red and white pom-poms.
