‘Tis the season to eat, drink, and be merry… and dress up for all those holiday parties. Unlike cocktail parties that take place any other time of year, you want to feel extra festive for all those holiday soirees. But figuring out what to wear to a holiday party can be extra hard when you’re exhausted from all the holiday festivities and have an endless array of presents to buy leaving you with little room to shop for holiday dresses. But whether you’re going to a fancier affair or a casual party at a friend’s house, I’ve rounded up my favorite ideas for what to wear to a holiday party.
Picking out holiday party outfits can be tricky. You want to look cute and be festive, but you also have the weather and sometimes snow to contend with, so I included some fancy coats that will make the perfect warm toppers. I personally prefer to wear dresses to all my holiday parties, but I’m a dress girl through and through. If you’re more of a pants person or have some more casual festivities on the agenda, I included some fun tops and sweaters as well. I always say you can take things up a notch when going to a holiday party, even a super casual one, which is why I’m a huge fan of a festive nap dress that you can dress up with heels and a furry topper or down with a turtleneck, cardigan and flats. Regardless of where you’re headed, here’s what to wear to a holiday party.
