Here is your ultimate edit for holiday party outfit ideas and how to look chic and comfortable at your holiday party or event this season.

Rules for Finding the Best Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

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.
