The holiday season is almost here, and that means dozens of holiday parties are just around the corner. Whether you’re headed to a holiday party with family and friends or attending your office party, try some of these tips for putting your holiday party outfit together.
1. You Don’t Have to Wear a Dress
Dresses can be comfortable and versatile, but if you’re not comfortable in dresses, you don’t have to wear one just because it’s a special occasion. There are plenty of other ways to look polished for a holiday party. Try a pair of well-fitting trousers or pencil skirt and a fancier top than you would wear to the office.
2. Little Black Dresses Never Go Out of Style
If you are going the dress route, you can never go wrong with a little black dress. They’re especially great for office holiday parties where you need to maintain a little bit of professionalism. Opt for a cocktail-type little black dress that hits your leg around your knee, and pair with tights if it’s going to be chilly.
3. Always Accessorize
The best way to make your outfit holiday-ready is to accessorize! There are so many ways to take your outfit from boring to festive, whether it’s with statement jewelry, a great belt, large earrings, high heels or a light scarf. Try to pick one or two statement pieces so you don’t go overboard!
4. Add Some Sparkle
There’s something about the holidays that makes us want to wear all of the sequins and sparkles we can find. It’s also an easy way to make your outfit look festive! Look for tops or dresses with lots of sparkles and sequins, and add some jewelry that shines.
5. Avoid Gimmicky Pieces
The holidays are a time for having fun, and there will definitely be times when it’s appropriate to wear a fun Christmas sweater or wacky earrings. But when you’re headed to an event that requires a bit more polish, try to avoid pieces like this.
