What to Wear to Stay Warm and Stylish at Holiday Parties

The invitations to everyone’s holiday parties are flooding in, and the temperatures outside are dropping just as fast. It’s hard to imagine leaving your cozy home to go sip mulled wine, nibble on cheese and crackers, and schmooze when you’re at risk for freezing your bottom off. But looking stylish at your holiday parties doesn't mean you have to be uncomfortable. Read on for some tips on how to stay warm while still looking fabulous for all your holiday parties this year.

Sweater Dress

What we love best about sweater dresses is how easy they are. Just throw one on, and that’s it. Women’s sweater dresses are simple but sophisticated and a go-to for holiday parties. Opt for a fabric like cashmere for extra warmth, and pair with opaque tights and velvet shoes for a fuzzy and fabulous ensemble. There are many different cuts and styles of sweater dresses to fit every woman’s shape and personal style. Find one that you love, and enjoy being warm and stylish at your next holiday party.

Cashmere Sweater

A well-fitted cashmere sweater is always an elegant choice. The lightweight fabric with unparalleled warmth will keep you warm and glamorous for the whole evening. Women’s Cashmere sweaters are a timeless classic that will keep you warm and fashionable for this season and the years to come. Wear a fitted turtleneck cashmere sweater with a skirt or a pair of sleek slacks. Or try a short-sleeved cashmere sweater with a maxi or midi skirt for a cozy and smart look. Try an open cashmere cardigan over that new holiday dress or silky jumpsuit to keep toasty while still dressing up. A cashmere sweater is an easy go-to for looking exceptional and staying warm while sipping cocktails and having a great time.

Sweater Poncho

A cashmere poncho is an elegant and exotic way to stay warm and look amazing for all your holiday parties. It can be worn as its own piece over some alluring women’s black jeans or a wool pencil skirt. This piece is particularly special as it marries the best of a sweater and a poncho, making it even more versatile. It is long for extra warmth, flowing for a delicate grace, and fashioned with a wide neckline for ease of wear, making it easy to slip on and off if your temperature changes throughout the evening. Wear over a dress for a chic but casual look. Regardless of how you style it, it will leave you feeling beautiful and balmy.

Knit Skirt

A great hack for staying warm and stylish at the holiday party is by wearing a knit skirt. Choose a longer style like a midi skirt or a maxi skirt for extra leg cover – and extra warmth. We love mixed-knit fabrics like wool blends and cashmere blends that are sure to keep you feeling comfortable and looking luxurious. Choose a slimming cut, and pair with a flowing blouse or sweater. Alternatively, pair a long maxi skirt made from a heavy knit to avoid clinging with a fitted top for an elegant look. For extra insulation, opt for opaque or wooly stockings underneath instead of sheer or silk tights.

Knit Leggings

No matter if you’re rocking a skirt, a dress, or a sweater dress to a holiday party, the best way to keep those stems warm this winter is with a pair of knit leggings. They are the answer to unparalleled comfort so you can sit, bend, squat, and do everything else while tearing up the dance floor at the party. For some added texture, opt for corduroy leggings that are thicker than regular leggings and lend some extra warmth.

Boots

Instead of wearing heels or ballet flats that keep the tops of your feet exposed to the elements, go for some sassy boots instead. Leather or suede boots will keep your toes toasty and add an extra flair to your outfit. If you’re looking to wear heels, try a mid-calf boot with a thick heel for comfort and stability outside in the icy weather – not to mention when you’re standing inside with a flute of champagne.

Whether you’re attending a low-key holiday party or a classy celebration, there is no need to compromise on fashion for warmth. With the array of clothing options out there for this holiday season, there is a look for every woman to wear at holiday parties that will ensure all-around comfort and style.
