Rejoice in all there is to love about cozy winter sweater weather at your next holiday event! Whether you’re getting ready for your office’s holiday party with colleagues or picking out your outfit for a neighborhood or close friend’s soiree, a sweater is a perfect choice for any holiday event. Sweaters are warm, cozy, and easy to dress up, making them completely on-theme for a holiday soiree or upcoming Christmas party.
You can opt for an elegant, dressy sweater or a festive sweater in a fun and seasonal print, depending on the party's vibe. Style your sweater with skirts, black jeans or leggings, or dress pants, plus whatever accessories or layers you want to add to feel appropriately dressed for the party.
When getting ready for a holiday party, you truly can’t go wrong with a timeless crewneck sweater. And, to elevate this sweater style, opt for a women’s cashmere sweater with a classic crew neckline. Cashmere is a must-have for the holiday party season since this cloudlike and luxurious material instantly makes any outfit feel and look dressier. Opt for a polished and effortlessly elegant cashmere crewneck sweater in a festive and flattering shade like fresh ivory, rich red, or radiant navy. Try wearing this silky-soft crewneck as-is or as a layer over a button-up blouse or Oxford. Complete this look with some dress pants or a midi skirt with tights and heeled booties.
Another great option for any holiday party is a women's cardigan sweater. A cardigan sweater can add bulk-free and fuss-free warmth to any outfit, whether you wear it over a silk blouse or a fit and flare or sweater dress.
A cotton modal open drape cardigan with a beautiful draping neckline and placket that makes the front a bit longer than the back will add a touch of elegance to any holiday party look, while the comfy cotton will keep you feeling warm and cozy while you enjoy the festivities. This style of cardigan looks great over a dress, so this is a perfect option for a fancier soiree. Or, opt for a fine gauge cotton long open cardigan sweater that pairs perfectly with a blouse and straight or skinny-leg dress pants.
As we’ve mentioned above, cashmere has this magical ability to instantly make any outfit feel and look dressier. Well, if you want to take this to the next level, a cashmere turtleneck is a perfect choice for your next holiday soiree. The seriously soft cashmere will look as great as it feels, and the turtleneck style is perfectly on point for the cozy vibes of the season.
Opt for a cashmere turtleneck sweater in a festive fair isle pattern or a solid shade like green or ivory shade. Pair this top with a high-waisted a-line skirt, simple black tights, and ankle booties or ballet flats for a polished and dressy holiday party look you’ll want to wear again and again.
Similar to the magic of cashmere, there’s something about women's tunic sweaters that effortlessly make any outfit feel elegant and dressy enough for any holiday occasion. The tunic length is also oh-so-flattering on everybody (especially you!), and when paired with leggings and heeled boots, you'll likely discover your favorite silhouette yet.
For your next holiday gathering, pair a black or navy oversized v-neck tunic sweater with a statement necklace or your favorite party-perfect earrings with print leggings in classic red plaid or red and black check. This outfit will be so comfy and flattering you’ll likely want to adapt it for everyday wear as well once the holiday party circuit is over for the season!
Of course, this wouldn’t be a list of perfect holiday party sweaters without mentioning the option or an oh-so-festive print Christmas sweater. A pullover or cardigan Christmas sweater in a pattern like snowflakes or fair isle is an iconic choice for any holiday party.
Pair a pullover patchwork rich red crew neck sweater with a seasonal snowflake print with some black crushed velvet leggings or high-waisted black dress pants. The balance of a fun and festive print top with simple black bottoms is a holiday party look that works every single time, and you can complete this cozy, on-theme look with mini ornament or candy cane earrings if you want to take your holiday cheer game to the next level.
Regardless of your sweater of choice, these tops are perfect for enjoying canapés on one of those festive little cocktail napkins and sipping some mulled wine or eggnog while you bask in that warm and fuzzy holiday glow with family, friends, or colleagues (can you tell we're excited about the holiday party season?!).
