 What to Wear to Holiday Parties

It’s the most wonderful time of the year with a calendar filled with holiday parties and events from now until New Years.  With so many opportunities to bring out your best in fashion it can also be hard to know what to wear to each get together. That fabulous sequin mini dress you bought for New Year’s Eve won’t be the same outfit for your office holiday party. With different holiday outfit options in-store, we decided to pull some of our favorite festive looks to make your holiday party shopping easy and stress-free.

Big Holiday Bash

A holiday bash is arguably the most fun to shop for. Think: sequins, sparkle, and full-out glam. This is a time to go all out. Fabrics such as velvet, sequins, lace and metallics are all perfect options for a dressy holiday soiree as texture is key.

Try mixing patterns and materials. A sequined blazer with a velvet dress screams festive while remaining chic and classic. Add a unique and interesting heel paired with a piece of sparkly gold jewelry and you have a look to sleigh!

The below looks are perfect examples of ways to sparkle and shine at any celebration.

Family Friendly Rendezvous

When choosing an outfit for a family holiday gathering, comfort is key. It’s important to be casual, but stay chic and put-together, especially for those pesky family photos that will undoubtedly find their way to Facebook.

We recommend going with a flowy dress or a cozy sweater. For this type of more casual gathering, express your personal style with accessories. Adding a sparkly statement necklace or pair of earrings with a cozy sweater is an ideal way to elevate your look, without sacrificing comfort. It’s the perfect way to make it look like you’ve put in a lot of effort, without actually having to do so.

Keeping comfort in mind, a cute pair of flats or low-heeled booties will allow you to chase after those little nieces and nephews, while keeping your outfit fashionable from head to toe.

We are loving this casual, put-together look for family gatherings.

Office Party Chic

Holiday offices parties can often be difficult to dress for. You want to look stylish, without being inappropriate for a professional setting. A good rule of thumb is to wear a cleaned-up version of your everyday wardrobe. Office parties are not a time to experiment.

Office parties can vary in preferred-attire, depending on the venue. For a casual dinner or at-work gathering, a pair of jeans and a velvet blazer work best. Pair this look with smart heels and a statement bag.

For a dressier holiday office event, opt for a pair of tailored pants and an elegant blouse. Once again, accessorize your look with fun, but sensible jewelry and bag.

This look will bring in all the compliments from your coworkers this season.
