From Toasted White Chocolate Mochas to Eggnog Lattes at Starbucks, Yuletide romance on the Hallmark Channel to live wreaths piled high at grocery stores, the holiday season is in full swing. That means it’s time for surefire holiday party looks.
But what if you’re feeling a little stumped when it comes to this year’s festive fashion? No worries! We’ve got you covered.
Read on for fabulous holiday outfits that’ll turn heads in your neck of the woods.
1. Say Yes to the Mini Skirt Suit
What happens when you combine the polish of a classic blazer with the sassiness of a mini-skirt? Absolute perfection!
Ever since Reese Witherspoon rocked this look in varying shades of green at one of The Morning Show premieres, we’ve been starry-eyed and lovestruck. Of course, to pull it off, you’ll have to nix the no-shave winter rule because this trend shows skin.
How do you translate this into a party-ready silhouette? Pick matching colors or hues from the same section of the color wheel (like Reese). By matching the colors of each piece, you’ll ensure the ensemble looks both sleek and structured.
And, perhaps this goes without saying, but don’t forget to rock those holiday colors, Girl!
2. Velvet from Head-to-Toe
Nothing says holiday party attire like a whisper-soft velvet dress. Equal parts festive and glamorous, it’s this year’s holiday favorite for a reason.
Follow Priyanka Chopra’s stunning example by showcasing it with a form-fitting, long-sleeved, turtleneck dress and matching satin sash.
Pair it with metallic shoes, and you’ll be the belle of this year’s Christmas ball. Or, the shining star on New Year’s Eve.
And while we’re on the topic of great beauty hacks, keep in mind that turtleneck dresses are HUGE this year. In other words, you can’t go wrong with them this year.
3. Go Long with a Belted Jacket
Another great option when it comes to holiday party clothes? The longline belted jacket.
If you’re looking for a comfortable piece that can transition from day to evening with a few party-worthy jewels, then give this look a try. Whether you opt for a robe, cargo, or blazer style, it will make you feel polished and sexy.
Other options include belted, sequined numbers in all black for a bit of added sparkle. Or, a metallic version to light up any party or gathering.
Selena Gomez rocked a double-breasted lavender number at the Music Choice Awards, which was sassy, simple, and oh so elegant.
Holiday Party Looks
As the holiday party looks above demonstrate, you don’t have to settle for the little black dress again this year. Instead, head-outside-the-box with a mini skirt suit combo, velvet ensemble, or long jacket with a belt.
What’s more, each of these looks is simple to recreate, which means you can go from mommy day look to evening hottie in under an hour.
