Holiday festivities call for the more obvious glitz and glam, but what about dressing for all those less-hyped-up days (and evenings) in between? We’re talking spontaneous happy hours, date night, dinners out with friends—these are the events that add up and really define your style. The good news: Chillier weather and upcoming chances of snow don’t have to put a damper on your wardrobe.
With the prevalence of pumpkin-spice everything and Insta-worthy foliage, it's clear that fall is in full swing (even if we're still waiting for temperatures to really drop). You've likely got a trip home for the holidays booked, and there are plenty of festivities on the itinerary that require outfits to match. That includes dinners with extended family and drinks with old high school friends, so a chic, versatile holiday wardrobe is definitely in the cards.
We’re well in the homestretch of 2017, and New Year’s Eve provides the perfect occasion for venturing out of your sartorial comfort zone and taking things up a glittery notch. But how do you stylishly embrace the night’s festive nature without getting too cliché (since no one wants to look like an actual disco ball)? Never fear: Your party-ready outfit is only a click away.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
