9 Holiday Party Outfits

Greetings, friends! I know many of you have holiday events coming up, so I thought I’d round up 9 holiday party looks to inspire you! Whether you have a holiday cocktail party, at-home get together with friends, Christmas Eve church service, office party, or you just want to look cute for Christmas shopping… I’ve gotcha covered!

Look #1: Velvet Pants + Black Blouse + Black Suede Sandals

The combination of textures here is magical. The velvet pants are luxe and give the outfit a festive holiday vibe, the lace sleeves on the blouse are a great contrast, and the scallop strap suede sandals take it up a notch. You could totally swap the sandals for suede pumps if you’re opposed to open sandals this time of year.

Look #2: Embellished Sweater + Black Pants + Suede Pumps

Jazz up your basic black trousers with an embellished sweater. Throw on some blingy earrings, and you’ve got an easy holiday look perfect for Christmas church services or a daytime holiday office party.

Look #3: Sequined Sheath + Scallop Strap Sandals

If the invitation says “cocktail attire” or something like that, this dress is PERFECTION. The fit is amazing, it’s super flattering and comfortable to wear all night. The strappy sandals elevate the look, but pumps would work just as well. Throw on a fur capelet to finish the look.

Look #4: Black Tunic Sweater + Faux Leather Leggings + Black Suede Booties + Pop of Color

The key with wearing a monochromatic outfit is a great mix of textures. The plush black turtleneck tunic tops faux leather leggings with a ponte knit back that are super luxe, the booties with the tortoiseshell print heel are just a little unexpected, and then the lime gold satin bag with the big bow is the pop of color to really take the look to the holiday realm.

Look #5: Coated Denim + Sequin Cami + Velvet Blazer

Coated denim gives you the leather look with the comfort and structure of jeans. Pair them with a sequin cami and a velvet blazer for a great combination of textures and patterns. I went with pumps for this look, but strappy sandals or a pointy toe bootie would work as well.

Look #6: Shimmer Pencil Skirt + Tunic Sweater + Booties

Take the same turtleneck tunic sweater and tortoiseshell heel booties from above and put them with a shimmer pencil skirt for a whole other look. This has a modern, edgy vibe but it’s still conservative enough for the workplace.

Look #7: Red Sweater + Black Pants + Leopard Pumps

You can’t go wrong with red and black for holiday, but it can be a little… dare I say boring? The button detail on the sleeves of this sweater is a nice detail, and then the choker necklace and leopard pumps give this conservative outfit a bit of an edge. I wore this to Christmas dinner last year at a posh hotel.

Look #8: Black Lace Top + Blue Jeans + Oxblood Pumps

The key to making this look holiday appropriate is makeup and accessories. I blinged it up with sparkle and shine in my bag and jewelry, put on a bold pink lip, and then topped it off with a textured faux fur coat for a little extra drama.

Look #9: Lace Tee + Velvet Blazer + Sparkly Shoes

This is the same lace tee from look #8 but in ivory. I topped it off with the velvet blazer from look #5, swapped my blue jeans for black jeans, and added sparkly sandals to really dress it up. The champagne clutch is the perfect compliment to these shoes and the ivory lace top, and the statement necklace adds some sparkle and shine near the face.

I hope these looks give you some holiday party outfit inspiration!
