Holiday Party Outfit Guide

Holiday party season is already here! If you are like us and feel like it snuck up on you then this blog post is the one for you. Every party is different and it is rare to find one perfect outfit that you can wear to each event. We’ve broken it up into a variety of events so you have a clearer idea of what to wear. Keep reading for outfit inspiration!

A common event that most people will have to attend is an office work party. It can be tricky to know what to wear depending on your profession and day to day work attire. It’s advisable to go for something slightly dressier than your everyday look while still remaining professional. Wearing your usual trousers with a nice blouse is simple and classy. We recommend the Cavalli trouser from Tyler Madison paired with the Clara singlet by Soaked in luxury. Throw over a fun jacket like the Fauxy Jacket by Soaked in Luxury and you are good to go. 

 

Not all holiday parties are super fancy and now cozy get togethers are becoming very common. If you are attending a casual “Friendsmas” being comfortable and cute is important. The Lorne sweater by Gentle Fawn paired with Le High Skinny black denim by Frame is the perfect look for a home cooked meal and watching Elf. If you want to get extra cozy, throw on a pair of PJ Salvage Fun socks.

Another type of party that you may be heading to this holiday season is a cocktail party hosted at someone’s home. A cute trend that we are loving is fancy skirts with a classic wool sweater. This YaYa Plisse skirt paired with the Autumn Cashmere mock neck with pleated sleeves is perfect for an at home cocktail party. Wear it with the Margie heel by Sam Edelman or any of your favourite black pumps and the look will all pull together.

There’s a good chance you will be attending a family get together of some kind. Everyone’s families are different and have varying plans, we pulled this look with the idea of a big family dinner in mind. With family it is always good to look nice while still feeling like yourself and comfortable. Wearing a dark wash or black denim and a classy sweater is a fool proof outfit that looks great on everyone. These velvet crop pants by Velvet paired with this popcorn sleeve mock neck sweater makes a classic outfit even dressier.

Some work Holiday parties extend from the office and are held at larger venues. Usually formal attire is encouraged at events like this so we recommend a nice dress of some kind. If you are in to the midi length like we are you will love this Maylene dress by Joie. It would look gorgeous with the Olson boot by Sam Edelman to tie in the extra sparkle. This outfit embodies being festive and classy.

Usually around New Years you’ll be heading to something where more sparkle is required. It is always fun to feel like you are celebrating and let it show through your outfit. We have many gorgeous dresses in store like this Stone dress by Louizon. This dress has sparkle but is subdued enough so you can wear it for more than one occasion. Add some heeled boots like the Amaedi boot by Ted Baker and you will have heads turn in your direction all night.

We hope you have a really fun holiday season and get to as many parties as you can. These items can all be shopped online but we’d love for you to stop by the store and we can help you with any individual needs. We will have a Holiday Looks Sale happening this weekend so come by and find your perfect Holiday outfit. We hope to see you soon!

Xoxo,
