10 Tips And Ideas For A Perfect Christmas Party Outfit

December is upon us and we all know what that means – holiday parties!  We’ve searched the web and found some the best fashion styles to get you inspired for this year’s festivities and put them all in a folder inside of our Christmas Party Room to make it easy for you to find.  Check out our Party Outfit Inspiration folder for incredible dresses, jumpsuits, and fashion tips.  Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find there:


1. Velvet Pieces:

Velvet pieces are a must-have for your winter wardrobe and are always sure to make you look like a knock-out at any holiday party you attend.  Velvet can be worn so many ways – as a solid dress, a top with slacks, shoes, or paired with lace for an extra special holiday glam look.  Check out Who What Wear to see different ways to style this versatile fabric.

2. Sparkly Accessories:

When we think of holiday outfits, one of the first thing that comes to mind is sparkly accessories!  There are so many ways to brighten up your outfit with sparkle, so don’t limit yourself to only jewelry and purses.  This year why not try out a glittery blazer like Effortless Style showcases?

3. Sheath Dresses:

If you’re planning on attending an office holiday party, you’ll definitely want to check out this list of perfect dresses for your holiday party by Love Maegan.  There are plenty of ways to dress sleek and sophisticated (read: work appropriate!) and still get in the holiday spirit. Sheath dresses spruced up for the festivities are a great option to keep it classy.

4. Long Sleeve Dresses:

Don’t feel like you need to show too much skin if that isn’t your thing – or if you’re in a chilly climate.  Try out a long sleeve dress this year to stay cozy and fashionable for your holiday parties.  Glamour put together some great examples of long sleeve holiday party dresses that are sure to turn heads.

5. Winter White Dresses:

Don’t forget about white!  It seems like most people reach for black or red dresses over the holiday season, but don’t underestimate the power of a crisp winter white dress.  We are loving this crystal embellished one from Asos that The Glitter Guide recommends.

6. Red Dresses:

Nothing says Christmas quite like a vibrant red dress – not only is it a Christmas color, but everyone looks good in red! Pair it with red lipstick, fur, and glittery accessories like Penny Pincher Fashion does, and you’ve got the perfect holiday look.

7. Lace Dresses:

Lace is a classic choice for the holidays; whether you choose a lace dress in black or Christmas red, you really can’t go wrong.  Pair it with gold accessories and velvety shoes for the ultimate holiday chic look.  We are loving this red number that Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad is rocking – check out her blog for more amazing holiday outfits.

Let’s face it, nothing says “holiday party” like a sequin dress; no matter what pattern, cut, or color you choose, you’re sure to turn heads and be the life of the party.  For some fabulous sequin dress inspiration (and hints on where to buy one), check out She Finds’ 7 Holiday Shops For All Your Sequin Dress Needs.
