With holiday parties happening all December long, you may be wondering what’s appropriate to wear. Here is a guide to help you choose what is best for each style of event you have. Red and green are definitely not required for a great holiday look!
Family gatherings are usually pretty casual, so for a get together with relatives, try a cosy, winter-warm sweater. It will give you flexibility to sit on the floor and open presents with the kids but still look nice at the dinner table. Extra points for anything turtleneck or plaid, which are both trending this season.
Out On The Town With Friends
Chances are you’ll be heading out for champagne on New Year’s Eve or for pre-holiday drinks and dinner. You may be bar hopping or heading from spot to spot, so really, you can wear something casual, but make sure to cover it with a warm coat. A longer, heavy coat is perfect if it’s snowing, or try a fur collar for a windier evening to keep that neck warm.
An Important Date
You want to look extra dapper for your girl this holiday season. Something smart, like a suit or sharp blazer is ideal. Make sure to focus on the fit, as it should be form-fitting by not too tight, or that could be unflattering. For a daytime date, a leather jacket and hat combo is perfect.
That Work Holiday Party
Holiday parties at the office usually run after work, so wear something professional that you can dress down a bit to relax. For example, a blazer with a cool shirt underneath so you can peel layers off as the night goes on.
