It’s holiday party season again! This year we’ve got a whole list of ideas for the best holiday party outfits you can wear to all your festivities. Whether it’s your office party, your soiree with friends, or just a family get-together, these outfits will work for almost all your holiday party needs. Holiday engagements are the perfect opportunities to wear all your favorite winter pieces while adding some festive embellishments, including those that make you look like a shimmering gift yourself. So pull out that disco ball dress from the back of the closet and let’s get styling!
A great approach to any holiday party is to start by matching with a bold color scheme. Holiday colors are easy, stunning, and versatile to wear. You probably already have a closet full of options just waiting to be mixed and matched. Some classic holiday colors are red, green, gold, blue, and white. The holidays are the perfect time to be bold with these traditional festive colors.
We also love patterns like tartan for holiday parties, which just oozes with “mulled cider by the fire” vibes. Pair a tartan skirt with black opaque tights and a red women’s cashmere sweater for a classy and subtle look.
Now that you’ve got your color combo, it’s time to work textures. It’s the holiday season, after all, and nothing is going to be considered too festive. Velvet is one of our favorite fabrics to wear to a holiday party. Choose a burgundy velvet fit and flare dress to wear with opaque tights, your favorite suede booties, and a cute cropped cardigan.
’Tis the season for sparkling, so pull out your glittering sequins and wear them proudly. We love a pair of gold-sequined flared pants or chinos with a simple stark fitted black top to balance the aesthetic. Wear with a simple tailored black blazer, some red lipstick, and cute fuzzy shoes for a great almost casual holiday party outfit that definitely pops!
The forever go-to, a little black dress is always a perfect choice to wear to a holiday party. Whether it’s an office party, a cocktail party, or even a dressier family affair, a little black dress can be tasteful and fun all at once. Black dresses are brilliant because they come in so many shapes and styles, making them ideal for just about any woman. Make the black dress more festive by wearing patterned or colorful tights or bold gold statement jewelry. Glittery gold tights under a little black dress is a look we love for this party season.
Silky satin clothes are also shimmery and luxurious for the holiday festivities. Wear a gold, green, or red silk or satin cocktail dress or midi dress and it’s hard to go wrong with your styling. To dress it up, wear it with some cute booties and a blazer. Or, feel free to dress down by wearing under a turtleneck or cardigan sweater with a pair of flat boots.
Another great silky satin look is an iconic women’s satin suit. Choose a festive color and wear with a blouse or simple turtleneck sweater for a great holiday party look.
The sweater dress is an excellent choice for just about any holiday party, including the at-home family affair where everyone is curled on the couch sipping hot apple cider. Sweater dresses are conveniently as easy to dress up as they are to dress down. Dress up a sweater dress with some cute velvety heels, statement jewelry, a bold red lip, and a chic blazer. Sweater dresses are especially lovely because they tend to be form fitting and flattering to just about any body type. The perfect down to earth yet sophisticated choice for a holiday party, we love just about any sweater dress look.
This is perhaps the year of an unprecedented number of outdoor holiday parties. You don’t have to skimp on dressing up just because you’ll be outside. If it’s particularly cold, wear a pair of chic winter snow boots with faux fur to help dress up your outfit while staying warm. Wear a pair of wool tights instead of sheer for added warmth and insulation. Additionally, choose a fancier winter coat, such as a women’s wool coat. Be sure to stay warm and not just stylish for all your outdoor holiday parties.
It’s the season for all your favorite winter and sparkle outfits! Enjoy the opportunity to dress up and celebrate the holiday season with these fabulous party outfit ideas.
