Outfit Ideas for a Fabulous and Festive Holiday Party!
For holiday parties, it is always acceptable to flaunt your new sweater which you picked up as the weather became chillier – or even any festive knit! However, there is something extra fun with the planning and perfecting seasonal outfits. Regardless of whether you are celebrating the holidays this year or not, these ensembles will have you the center of attention of every event that you attend.
Step in Sparkles
There is no better time for you to wear something that is bedazzled in sequins or anything that sparkles than the holidays. Pick out sequined pants, then pair with neutrals so you achieve a fun and whimsical twist on your sparkly cocktail outfit.
It is a holiday classic and for a good reason: velvet feels festive always; whether it is as chic separates or in dress form. Let style icons and fashion influencers, Ola Farahat and Rania Fawaz be your personal seasonal shopping guides.
Kate Middleton, as we all know, is the queen of coat dresses. If that is not your vibe, then you can always choose a statement coat with sexy and sleek basics and killer heels that are to die for!
Take yourself from the office to a fete with the addition of elevated accessories which are both tonal and colorful. Think tights, statement earrings, a fancy heel, and patterned headbands – the works. Remember: more is more and less is definitely a bore.
Tartan or Tweed
Tweed never fails regardless of the time of the year. Add some great bling and keep the rest of the look simple – we guarantee that you are bound to not just look, but also feel extra exquisite!
Statement sleeves are currently having a moment – there is no better time in taking the look and giving it a spin than during a festive affair. Choose a frock with cute details and embellishments, then keep the rest of the outfit simple. Allow for a stunning headband to give your overlook that little extra something.
All-Over Graphic Print
A top and pants combo, a jumpsuit or a dress in a print all over is the easiest way in attracting attention during your holiday party, may it be at the office or any other setting. Plus, there is a bonus which is you don’t need to overly accessorize!
A Mini Skirt Suit
The ultimate staple for the 9 to 5 after hours: the mini skirt, which takes the structure with the classic blazer for the polishing. This blazer and skirt combo translates to a silhouette that’s party-ready. Go for a matching set. You can also try mismatching pieces that are in similar colors like the go-to of Reese Witherspoon.
A Turtleneck Dress
Wear it with a pair of strappy sandals for work events, then layer the turtleneck dress underneath teddy coats for your off days. A turtleneck dress won’t let you down so stock up for your closet.
A sequined jumpsuit should be included in your wardrobe as it’s the secret weapon of fashionable women for looking dressy while exerting minimal effort. Just throw one on and pair with festive gold studs. If you are feeling kind of lazy and the jumpsuit is sleek, your outfit will do all the talking for you and make you appear more put together. Take the extra mile and complete the look with a belted furry coat. You can also slip some color unto your ensemble using red or any other happy holiday hue.
A metallic skirt’s a festive piece that you can wear for the festivities. Not liking the idea of gold, bronze or silver? If so, then go for a much deeper print with an asymmetrical foil pattern or hint of shimmer that says you’re ready to party. You can wear a black sweater as well with black ankle booties and a layer of gold necklaces.
If sweats and leggings are not viable options, the next best thing would be tights. Bottoms are a bit tricky in styling, but an outfit that’s foolproof is to wear tights with a coat or blazer dress a la Meghan Markle. A Peggy plaid with side buttons contains enough intrigue without you feeling uncomfortable.
For an alternative to jeans, give leather pants a try. Don’t worry as we’re sure you won’t end up looking like Ross in an episode of Friends. A pair of leather bottoms already makes a statement on its own, so you just have to throw on a sweater then head out of the door. Dress up edgy pants with gilded accessories and some fancy heels. Don’t forget a cover up which can be a puffer jacket. You know it will be cold after hot toddies run out!
