‘Tis the season for gift-giving, being surrounded by loved ones and of course, parties. Between family gatherings, late-night forays with friends and the annual office soiree, you’ll need multiple ensembles for making the rounds. Whether you prefer your holiday party outfit to reflect the high-shine of the season or you’re more about a subtle glow, these ensembles are ideal for attending any festive occasion.
The Family Dinner: Chic Sweater and Pants
When it comes to family dinners, your outfit should be both comfortable, but you’ll still want to look, and feel, like your gorgeous self. To strike the balance between elegance and coziness, pair a stylish sweater with a pair of fitted trousers. A step up from the go-to jeans and a blouse combination.
Drinks with Friends: Shimmery Shift
For a night out with friends, go for full-on dazzle. Pair a shimmery shift dress with eye-catching shoes and a clutch. The simple silhouette is both figure-flattering and timeless. If you love the look of sparkle but want your dress to be the focal point of your holiday party outfit, opt for a nude pump and subtle jewelry.
The Office Party: Polished Pantsuit
This particular holiday party outfit needs to walk the fine line between professional and festive. If your annual office party happens to fall on a work day, this ensemble should also be able to seamlessly transition from desk to cocktails, making it an even trickier look to pin down. For equal parts glam and polish, opt for a black pantsuit, a fashion-forward twist on the classic LBD. Ankle-length trouser will keep the look fresh, especially paired with strappy heels. Add a couple of strategically placed crystal brooches or layers of bold statement jewelry for a dazzling finish.
