The holiday season is officially here and we all know what that means—it’s time to party! If your calendar is quickly filling with seasonal celebrations, you might be asking a familiar and fundamental question: what should I wear?! Sometimes it can feel like this time of year requires a special wardrobe filled with nothing but party dresses and festive flourishes. If you’re currently digging through your closet for the perfect outfits, we’re here to help with ideas for every occasion, from trimming the tree to a New Year’s Eve bash.
Office Party: The annual office party can feel like the toughest event of the year when it comes to wardrobe. Your outfit needs to feel festive while still staying work appropriate—and it often needs to make a seamless transition from a day at the office to an evening out. For this look, we recommend a classic, conservative piece with a festive touch. Consider topping a work-appropriate sheath dress or pencil skirt with a flowy cardigan edged in ladylike lace, or choose a little black dress that can be accessorized for the workday with a blazer and flats.
Friendly Festivities: Gatherings with friends and neighbors are among the most beloved Christmas traditions, offering a chance to catch up with your favorite people. For a cookie decorating party or a gift exchange, keep things casual and comfortable (so you can focus on the fun!) by matching a colorful statement piece—like a merry red tunic or cheerful cardigan—with classic jeans and boots.
At the Tree Farm: Picking out your Christmas tree is a time-honored holiday tradition, and—let’s face it—a fantastic family photo opportunity! But you might not feel your most fashionable when you’re wearing a bulky winter coat to the tree farm. This year, up your style game, before you trim the tree by layering a cozy sweater with a puffy down vest, then topping off your look with an extra-chunky beanie for added warmth.
Christmas Dinner: For the big day itself, you’ll want to find an outfit that’s cozy, cheerful, and comfortable. If your Christmas celebration is a casual get-together with family, add a bit of glam to a simple top-and-jeans combination with a jewel-toned jacket in luxe velvet. If your holiday gathering is a bit more formal, show off the spirit of the season in a bright plaid mini dress with sparkly accessories.
New Year’s Eve: If you’re planning to finish off the holiday season with a glamorous night out, you’ll need a show-stopping ensemble to ring in the New Year. Stand out in a sea of LBDs with a dress in winter white lace, paired with glam drop earrings for an extra hint of bling. A New Year’s Eve party is also the perfect time to try out the season’s splashiest trends, like wild leopard print or plush velvet. Attired in these fashion-forward styles, you might just feel inspired to take more risks in 2019.
