As we all know, holiday party season is just around the corner! I have a bunch of holiday looks I’m working on, but first I thought we should talk about the top holiday fashion trends this season.
None of these styles are especially ground-breaking or new for the holidays, but they’re having a moment this year, so this is a great opportunity to lean into the ones that most resonate with you. You may already have a lot of these in your closet, but if you want to pick up a new item or two to freshen up your holiday looks, I included shopping widgets for each trend.

Sequins, metallics, sparkly fabrics and bedazzled tops are everywhere this season. Pair them with velvet or satin for a pleasing mix of texture. Sequin earrings, metallic pumps, metallic jeans, and shimmery blouses are all great ways to wear this trend this season. I even found a sequin duster and jewel encrusted shoes.

Velvet is always appropriate for winter festivities, but it’s having a major moment in 2023. I love how it adds an element of luxurious sophistication to any outfit. It can be a full-on velvet dress, or just a velvet trim sweater. It can also be an accessory like a velvet bag or shoes, and I also found a few pairs of velvet pants and jeans.

I’m loving all the lower heel shoe choices out there right now, and pointy toe kitten heels are by far the most popular for dressier events. You can find them in all different materials from metallics to suede, some have embellishments, some are plain, and I also found a few pairs of kitten heel booties that would work for more casual holiday events.

All-white outfits are huge this season, as are monochromatic looks in shades or red or pink or even blue, and you can never go wrong with all black.
