The holiday season is upon us, which means there are many parties to attend and many reasons to get all dolled up for the most wonderful time of the year! You might have a work Christmas party to go to for you or your spouse, a friend’s or relative’s Christmas party or you may be hosting your very own Christmas party this year! You know what a Christmas party means? It means it is time to go shopping! Even though you will probably only wear your Christmas party outfit a few times, you still want to find the perfect outfit to wear to the Christmas party whether you will be attending a party that is dressy or casual. There are so many clothes, shoes, and accessories to choose from, so how do you pick? Here are some ideas of what to wear to a Christmas party that will make you look and feel totally fantastic!
Sparkle and Shine
Glitter, metallic, and sequins are huge in fashion this year! Any excuse we ladies get to wear something sparkly and shiny, we take it! Finding a cocktail dress that has sparkles, sequined details, or a cocktail dress with silver or gold metallic finish is a great choice for a Christmas party. The way the Christmas lights and festive holiday decorations reflect on your dress will make you stand out! There are a number of styles to choose from when it comes to finding the perfect cocktail dress, so select the one that you feel most confident in. If you wanted to wear something other than a cocktail dress, there are beautiful sequin and metallic skirts to choose from in all different styles and lengths. When you are out shopping for your Christmas party, just remember that you cannot go wrong with a sparkly dress or skirt this holiday season!
Getting into the Christmas Spirit
If you are looking at an outfit possibility and it does not include red, green, black, white, gray, silver, or gold, then you should move along. Get into the Christmas spirit by sticking with Christmas colors. Doing so, will also help you narrow down some of your options. You could wear the sparkly dress with red or black tights, the sequin skirt with black leggings and a cute sweater, a black or red dress, a chic black blouse with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans, or a high-waisted skirt with a crop top. Any one of those options will give you a sexy, classy, and sophisticated look. Of course, it is winter time also, so adding a black or white fitted blazer to your outfit will give you an entirely polished look that you will love!
The Perfect Shoes
Finding the perfect shoes is vital when creating the perfect outfit for a Christmas party. Shoes can change your entire look by dressing it up or dressing it down. The great part about shoes is that you can go buy a new pair of shoes and even though you may only wear your Christmas outfit this one time, you can wear your shoes over and over again! Black or Nude heels will go with pretty much anything in your closet and are also perfect for a Christmas party! You can also add a pop of Christmas color to your look by purchasing red heels or sparkly pumps. If you are looking for something that will look great with a more casual outfit, then a pair of suede ankle boots is simple and fun. The most important part of finding the perfect shoes is not only that they will compliment your outfit, but that they are comfortable.
Now that you have your Christmas party outfit and the perfect shoes to go with it, it is time to accessorize! Adding accessories gives you the opportunity to add your personal touch and will pull your entire outfit together. If you chose to wear a solid colored dress such as, black, white, or red, then pairing that dress with a sequined clutch would be an excellent option. If you chose to wear an outfit with much sparkle and shine, then carrying a solid matte or shiny clutch would pair perfectly. If you are planning on wearing an up-do, then chandelier earrings, and a pendant necklace would work well. If you are going to wear your hair down, you should try diamond stud earrings and a statement necklace. Christmas parties are a great opportunity for you to dress up and give you a chance to wear all of that fun festive jewelry that only works once a year, so have fun with it! Short on accessories?
