Casual Holiday Party Outfit

Okay, guys. I’ll just put it right out there. I’m not feeling the holiday fashion just yet. It still seems so early!

But those festive events will be here before we know it, and there’s nothing better than having the perfect thing already hanging in your closet ready to wear when the time comes to get dressed for a holiday party.

Casual Holiday Party Outfit: Loft Cowl Neck Tunic with black skinny jeans and black suede over-the-knee boots

This green cowl neck tunic is an easy piece to transition from day to night. You can wear it with flats for a work wear or daytime look, or pair it with black jeans (bonus points for leather or velvet) and heels for a great casual holiday party outfit.

Loft Cowl Neck Tunic

This tunic sweater is a nice fine gauge knit, and it comes in 6 really pretty fall colors. It’s true to size, but you can size up for a roomier fit. I have the small, but I might like it better in a medium.

This is a really nice closet staple that is highly versatile, AND it’s 40% off right now! Use code WORKIT at checkout, and opt for Store Pickup to avoid shipping fees.

Casual Holiday Party Outfit: Loft Cowl Neck Tunic with black skinny jeans and black suede over-the-knee boots

I wore black jeans and black suede over the knee boots to dress up the look for a festive but still comfortable and casual holiday party outfit.

My jeans need no introduction. I feel like I’m really over-wearing them during this winter style series, but I feel like just about every outfit I want to put together looks best with black jeans! At least you can see that while they’re pricey, on a cost-per-wear basis, they’re really a good value. I’ve had these for a couple of years, and they still look new. Best of all, they’re 30% off right now at both Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.

My Stuart Weitzman boots were a splurge last year when they went 50% off after the holidays, and this style is no longer available, so I linked to a variety of options in the shopping widget below.

If you’re looking to splurge this season, Bloomingdale’s has a lot of their SW boots on sale. Some are marked down, and others qualify for the $25 off every $100 you spend promo that’s going on right now.

I’ve had this clutch for a while, I actually got it from Trunk Club during last year’s holiday season. I use it a lot throughout the year when we go out to dinner and I want to add a little bling to a casual outfit.

I’m not a fan of wearing necklace with a cowl neck top, so I wore these large beaded mixed metal drop earrings for some extra bling. They’re nice and lightweight but really pack a visual punch.

I also wore my silver link bracelet, but this would be a good opportunity to wear something with a little more visual weight. The sleeves on this sweater could be pushed up to showcase a fun bracelet like this cuff or a this wrap bracelet.

Loft Cowl Neck Tunic

This is the type of outfit I’d wear to a holiday open house in someone’s home, friendsgiving, a cookie exchange with girlfriends… things like that. You could even take it a step further with black velvet jeans and pumps, if you want to be a little more dressed-up.

There’s a lot of focus on bling and sparkle for holiday style, and we do get more gussied up for my husband’s office holiday party, but most of our events are get-togethers with friends and venues that call for more casual attire. This outfit is perfect for those types of holiday events.
