Outfit Ideas for Every Holiday Event on Your Calendar
Everyone’s favorite time of the year is back, and there’s a lot we’re looking forward to. After the last few years of lockdowns and restrictions, we’re excited to finally be gathering again. Here is some outfit inspiration for every holiday event you’ve got lined up this year.
Work Christmas Party
If your office is having a Christmas party, choose your festive look with your workplace’s dress code in mind. Kick it up one degree for a perfectly professional and stylish holiday ensemble.
Knit Top with Trousers
If your office vibe is pretty laid back, then this is the perfect way to dress up without going over the top. Find yourself a nice pair of trousers and pair them with a textured top in a festive color.
These are a safe bet for looking elegant while also keeping your toes toasty. Ankle boots go with everything from trousers to dresses, so these are a safe bet if you’re still deciding on the rest of your outfit.
Plaid Skirt with Tucked Blouse
Preppy plaid is having a moment this season, so why not enjoy the trend? Double dip by choosing festive colors and tuck in a neutral-colored blouse to pull the look together.
Matching suit-sets have been all the rage lately. So, if you’ve already got one in your closet, now is a great time to show it off in a head-to-toe color with a great bag.
Just because it’s a family event doesn’t mean you should show up in your sweatpants (although stretchy is recommended). Upscale casual should be your frame of mind to find the perfect blend of comfy and festive.
Sweater with Jeans
A cozy, textured sweater with jeans is a great outfit for a casual dinner. Pick a sweater in a bright, festive color and jeans with a degree of stretch to accommodate all the food you’ll be enjoying.
If your family dinner is a little more formal, then a midi-dress that can be easily dressed up or down and layered with a knitted cardigan, blazer, or jacket.
Keep warm while looking cool. A softly structured, oversized blazer is a great way to top off a casual outfit and bring it up a notch.
If there was one good thing to come out of 2020, is the introduction of sophisticated loungewear sets. Grab a matching ensemble and get ready to relax and sip some eggnog.
Gathering With Friends
Unless it’s a theme party, leave the ugly Christmas sweaters at home. An intimate get-together with friends is a great opportunity to be playful with a combination of fashion-forward and comfort.
Textured Knits with Trousers
Knits are the name of the game in the fall and winter seasons. Pair your statement knit with some relaxed trousers for an effortlessly chic look that’s just as comfy.
A mainstay of holiday attire if there ever was one. Knitted dresses are the perfect mix of cute and cozy. Pair a shorter dress with tights and finish off your look with a great pair of boots.
Once again, plaid comes to the rescue. Effortlessly festive, subtlety preppy, and super easy to mix and match. Whether it’s a pair of pants or a coat you can’t go wrong with this print.
Of course, what would a holiday party be without a great pair of shoes? You may not be wearing these all night (unless your host has a shoe-friendly house policy) but you can still turn heads when you walk through the door.
