Holiday Party Outfit

Good morning, friends. Happy Monday! Today is day 8 of 25 Days of Winter Fashion, and this week I’ll be focusing on holiday party looks for different occasions. This is an outfit that would work for certain office parties or home parties, depending on the level of formality required.

I’m actually doing two looks with these coated denim pants and black suede pumps. I almost combined them in this post and then I decided I may as well get two posts out of it, so tomorrow I’ll be back to show this look with an off-the-shoulder sweater.

I realize not everyone wants to wear a sleeveless top when it’s frigid outside, and I usually opt for sleeves for winter parties, but this top was simply too perfect to resist. The fit is great, and it’s super comfortable to wear. I love that I can wear my regular bra with it, and there’s nothing to futz with.

It has this pretty black lace over a blue knit lining and an embellished neckline with a keyhole closure in back.

For size reference, I have this top in a small. It also comes in petite and plus sizes.

Also, these pants are 30% off right now. WOOT! These are coated denim which gives them a leather-like look with the comfort and affordability of denim.

If the coated denim is too edgy for your venue, consider pairing this top with black ponte bootcut pants and pointed toe pumps.

I accessorized with a pair of Stella & Dot mixed metal chandelier earrings and coordinating coil wrap bracelet. I bought these two pieces quite a while ago, and they’re often my go-to for dressier looks.

My nail polish is a new CND shade called Berry Boudoir but I can’t find it online. It seems to be sold out everywhere. I’m wearing the Shellac, but it also comes in Vinylux if you want to DIY it. It’s super popular, which is why it’s sold out everywhere, but I expect it to be restocked soon.

My clutch is old; I can’t even remember where I picked it up, but it’s fun to carry with dressy party outfits. I’ll link up some options in the shopping widget at the end of the post.

Also, these shoes are Stuart Weitzmans and they are like 15 years old… no lie, I know I bought them before we moved to this house, and that was 12 years ago. It just goes to show how investing in quality footwear can pay off over the long haul. They were on sale too, as I recall!

For more of a mid-price shoe, the Sam Edelman Stillson is a similar style, or a nice pointy-toe suede or velvet pump would be great with this look too. I love the Sam Edelman Hazel for that style. And Payless does a great job this time of year with budget-friendly pumps for party looks, like this Christian Siriano pair for $19.

I can’t wait to wear this outfit to an event next month. I’m not sure yet where I’ll wear it, but I’ll find a way, even if I have to take my husband out to a fancy dinner one night. Ha! It would actually work for his holiday party, but I already have a dress for that. Stay tuned for that look later this week!
