It’s beginning to look a lot like holiday party season, and we’re here for it. The celebrations might be smaller or socially distanced this year, but that’s not stopping us from getting all fancied up when we have the chance. We’re here to help translate that bright, festive feeling into your wardrobe, with outfit ideas ranging from low-key cozy to all-out elegant. Whatever your party plans may be, read on and raise a toast to holiday style.
Are your office and family parties moving online this year? Virtual festivities offer all the fun of getting dressed up without ever having to venture outside in the cold. Go for a dramatic dress in a soft, curve-skimming fabric—you can't go wrong with ruched silk. Finish the look with a bold lip and some statement accessories to frame your face. Organic shapes—like these sparkly drop earrings—make a major impact on screen. The best part about an online party? You can slip on some fuzzy slippers whenever you like and no one will be the wiser.
A Fashionable Feast
Planning an intimate gathering at home? Get glam for a night in with an elevated casual outfit. To make holiday dinner with your nearest and dearest feel extra fancy, you’ll want something that stands out. Cozy sweaters like this do double duty, keeping you warm while making a statement with unexpected design detail. High-waisted skinnies balance the sweater’s bold sleeves—choose a dark wash for a dressier look. Animal-print flats add dimension, and eye-catching jewelry brings a festive finish.
Staycation in Style
Who says you can’t have a holiday getaway right in your own living room? Take it extremely easy with a day (or three) of board games, books and movie marathons, dressed in cozy clothing for maximum relaxation. Start with soft, easy pieces, like an oversized button-up shirt and French terry joggers. Then you can pile on the warmth with a faux-shearling throw, knit slippers and a mug of hot cocoa.
