Holiday parties are just around the corner! I LOVE this time of year, but it can be stressful figuring out what to wear to all of the different types of parties. Cocktail, dressy, casual, no matter the occasion, I have some great suggestions for you. This is also an expensive time of year, so I am keeping these suggestions around $100 and below.
When I saw this stunning dress, I fell in love with it!! I love velvet, metallic, and feminine pieces and this encumbers all of those things! If I wore it to an actual event, I would wear a lace bandeau under it just to be safe. It was fine for standing still for pictures though. After nursing three babies and ramping up my workouts, there is less to hold it in place these days. Ha! It really just screams elegance to me and that’s why I was so drawn to it. It’s an excellent price for an evening dress as well. And what says evening glam more than faux fur? I love this jacket so much and that it can be worn casual with jeans also. And this outfit is very comfortable. How often can you say that about an evening outfit?
There are so many good choices right now so I wanted to share some more of my favorites with you that would be amazing for a cocktail/ dressy holiday party.
I absolutely love this velvet wrap dress for a dressy (non cocktail) party. The color and embroidery detail totally caught my eye. Wrap dresses are flattering on everyone too! For this type of party, I also love a fun statement top with a dressy pant like a leather or faux leather legging. This EXACT dress can be purchased at “Skye on the Town”. You can follow them on IG as @skyeonthetown. I am linking similar options below.
Finally for a casual Christmas party, I love denim, a statement top, and bold accessories. I currently have a cape obsession, so I love that concept for a holiday party. This black one has endless styling options. You can totally use your accessories to make your look more festive.
I hope these tips will make your holiday styling a little less stressful! Experiment with texture to create interest in your looks. This includes lace, fur, velvet, leather, and suedes. And this is the perfect time to branch out and try something new! I love to mix it up and experiment!
I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving week!! How many holiday parties are on your calendar?
