Figuring out what you are going to wear to a holiday party can be stressful. That said, you can never go wrong with a women’s sweater. But then, you have to figure out how you want to style the sweater with your whole outfit. The stress of it all is seemingly overwhelming and never-ending. Not to worry! If you’re stumped on outfit ideas, here are a few tips we’ve come up with to help you style your party sweater.
Before you start rummaging through your wardrobe, adjust your holiday party sweater outfit to the event you’ll be attending. If you’re going to a casual party with friends, have fun with your sweater and keep it comfortable in jeans. If you’re going to a formal event, dress it up with jewelry, heels, and other statement accessories. If it’s a virtual event, enjoy wearing your sweater with leggings. Going on a holiday party date night with your significant other? Try a playful mini or pleated skirt with knee-high boots.
You can’t go wrong with the quintessential sweater and jeans combination. Break the rules and dare to wear white denim. Pair a colorful holiday party sweater with white denim bottoms. The white jeans will really make the color of your sweater pop. Go the opposite way and wear dark wash or black jeans instead. Combine a bright-colored sweater in rich red, evergreen, or blue to add a flattering contrast to your chic dark jeans. Holiday party wear sweaters can also be layered. Try throwing your holiday sweater over a long-sleeved shirt. It could be your go-to blouse. It could be a denim or plaid shirt. Wear your sweater under a denim jacket for an approachable chic streetwear look. Polish off your look with blue jeans or black skinny jeans.
To take your outfit to the next level, you can also add jewelry. The holiday season is the perfect time of year to show off your statement jewelry. Wear a statement necklace with your sweater. Whether you’re donning a V-neck or one of our turtlenecks, your signature jewelry will glimmer and add festivity to any outfit. Try out Christmas-themed earrings like snowflakes, pine trees, or gingerbread men.
If you want to wear a holiday sweater while still feeling comfortably casual, opt for leggings that will fit you just right. Try our women’s starfish mid-rise knit leggings in black, made with a soft cotton jersey so that it stretches with ease. They’re made of substantial fabric, so you’ll look sleek enough when you don’t have to worry about the lumps and bumps that flimsier leggings tend to have. The wide elastic waistband lies flat and smooth, so you’ll always feel smoothed out in all the right places.
If leggings aren’t your thing, add a playful skirt to your winter array when you want to add a bit of old Hollywood glamour to your look. A pleated skirt with one of our cashmere sweaters may be just what you need for a dose of vintage elegance. If you prefer a modern twist, try a form-fitting leather or pleather skirt with heels to take it up a notch.
We can’t forget about the shoes. Knee-high boots give off the perfect bit of fashionista attitude and are easy to pair with your holiday sweater. Try a red holiday sweater with a black mini skirt and black knee-high boots. Have fun by going all monochromatic. Imagine yourself in all white from head to toe: white sweater, white jeans, and totally rocking those knee-high boots. We love to see it. If you want monochromatic without the fear of stains from colorful cocktails and that regrettable fruitcake, then opt for darker colors.
Last but most certainly not least, don’t forget about all the fun winter accessories you can pair with your holiday sweater for your next holiday party. A V-neck cashmere sweater of any color will look lovely with white denim and a trendy little beanie. If you’d rather wear a skirt, then a V-neck cashmere sweater can be worn beautifully with a pleated skirt and one of our winter scarves. Name a better duo than the iconic cashmere sweater with a chunky knit infinity scarf. Stick to neutral colors if you prefer a minimalist vibe, or go all out with festive greens to get into the holiday mood.
Besides scarves and sweaters, also think about the bag you’d like to bring to your holiday party. Do you want a practical crossbody purse that you can sling over your shoulders in a surprising camouflage pattern that can actually pair well with a green holiday sweater? How about a bejeweled statement clutch? If you’re going for that monochromatic all-white look, finish off that hot white look with a minimalist white purse.
