if you like tulle
Tulle There Was You Midi Dress
Attending a fancier holiday occasion? A tulle dress with a gorgeous starry print will make you feel confident for the night ahead. Pair it with platform heels for extra comfort, and throw on a winter white faux-fur coat to stay warm.
if jumpsuits are for you
One Shoulder Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are a great evening alternative if you’re not quite feelin’ a dress. A bright red one is v festive for a holiday party without being too on the nose.
if you stan a dramatic sleeve
A sequin top with statement sleeves, a maxi pencil skirt, and strappy sandals looks surprisingly effortless, which is perfect for really any holiday party. You can always add some red or sparkly heels for a little more oomph.
if you’re obsessed with pearls
Velvet Tux With Pearl Embellishment
Get ready for a night out with a pearl-embellished green velvet dress. If you’re meeting friends for cocktails at an upscale joint, this is for you! A tiny shoulder bag and two-strap pumps complete the look.
if you can’t stop wearing black
Who else refuses to wear color in the winter? A sleek black leather jumpsuit is definitely bold and you can pull the whole thing together with a PVC pump. Easy, right?
if you like pleats
Shimmer Accordion Pleated Long Maxi Skirt
Pleats, please! You can’t go wrong with a maxi gold skirt for your office holiday party. Pair it with a luxe cashmere turtleneck, fishnet stockings, and your favorite pair of classic black heels.
if you’re into lace
Lace Button-Up Blouse
LE FOU WILFRED
A lace blouse with a matching bralette underneath is subtly sexy, especially with a pair of leather pants. This outfit is perfect for holiday drinks with friends—or that person you’ve been crushin’ on. Complete the look with a classic white pump.
if you want sparkle
Sequin Long Sleeve Faux Wrap Dress
Nothing says “It’s Christmas!!!” like a chic red sequin dress. Edge it up with some black block heel booties.
if you’re not over leopard print
Katrina Faux Fur Walker
Not all holiday parties are super fancy, and that’s okay! Whether your friend is hosting a low-key get together or the dress code is more casual, a leopard-print coat over a black turtleneck and leather pants is something stylish that’s easy to throw on. Accessorize with a pair of black ankle boots, and you’re good to go!
if you wanna make a statement
ROTATE BIRGER CHRISTENSEN
A silver mini lamé dress is a SHOWSTOPPER. Add a pair of sky-high heels and a fringed evening clutch, and you’re basically walking tinsel (in the best way possible).
if you’re into neutrals
A sweater dress combined with tall snakeskin booties is dressy enough for a holiday party, yet casual enough to grab hot cocoa with your friends. Top it off with a shearling-trimmed coat and you’ll be oh-so cozy in cold temps.
if you like minis
A blazer dress in winter white is undeniably sophisticated. Peep the gold buttons and flared sleeves! Coordinate the look with shimmery lurex tights for extra warmth and a matching high heel.
if velvet is calling your name
Velvet Maxi Dress
Velvet floral details and a flutter sleeve add some romantic details to an otherwise simple black maxi. Wear this dress with a black satin evening coat, and you’ll get so many compliments.
if you want to make an entrance
A green velvet number will get you noticed at any event. The wrap silhouette combined with statement earrings and black pumps make it classic. The only thing that’s missing is a cocktail in hand, duh.
if you’re about being comfy
Cropped Faux Pearl-Embellished Cable-Knit Sweater
This sweater is so unique with its pearl embellishment on the zipper. It looks fashionable with a belted skirt, and you’ll be extra comfortable in lace-up block-heeled boots.
if you love some fringe
Fringed Sequin Dress
A fringed sequin dress is definitely flirty. Add a pair of statement earrings (and maybe twirl around to some holiday jams), and you’ll be turning heads.
