Five Simple Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

I love a good holiday party. It’s our one chance to showcase our stylish and fabulous selves to our “other” family—our co-workers. But, finding the holiday party outfit look while keeping it professional, with a bit of flair can get complicated. You want to feel comfortable, chic and appropriate, and that requires just the right amount of sparkle, color and most importantly fit.

Start with comfort and fit.

If you’re fidgeting and pulling on your dress all night, or your outfit requires impossible amount of tape and spanx, you won’t feel your best and you won’t have a chance to relax and enjoy yourself.

Add a little pop.

If you’re not the type to go full sequence, adding a little sparkle whether it’s in a shoe, a necklace or even a pant with other neutrals can be a great way to showcase your holiday spirit.

Don’t be afraid of color.

While a LBD is safe and always appropriate, don’t shy away from embracing the colors of the season. There isn’t a better time to wear a bright red dress or play with emerald hues than this time of the year. Consider creamy whites also, just don’t drink red wine while wearing them!

Stay work appropriate.

Sure it’s your time to shine, but that doesn’t mean all etiquette goes out the window. Super short hemlines might be fun for a New Year’s soiree with friends, but going ultra short, or revealing too much on top isn’t the way to go here.

When in doubt, a little black dress with shiny or colorful accessories is a solid and classic standby, but if you’re looking to bring a little sass and  excitement, check out these holiday party outfit ideas and get inspired to sparkle this season.
