Let's start with something a little festive. Here's a delicate lace dress with a white top and burgundy skirt. It's a simple way to incorporate the Christmas theme into a holiday party outfit. It's quite conservative, which makes it perfect for family gatherings. The platform booties with lace details add a girly school-girl vibe, and I figured that wearing a pair of gold chandelier earrings would make the outfit a little more fancy and sophisticated. A combination of off-white and gold nail polish would look stunning along with a warm-toned eyeshadow palette of reds and browns. Finish off with soft curls to go with this feminine outfit and bold red lips to make a statement!
2. Sleigh Ride
This is most likely what I would wear to my own family Christmas party. I mean the crop top, thigh highs, boots, and everything black kind of give that away. I paired a classic skater skirt with an edgy distressed biker jacket along with a burgundy crop top underneath to add some color to this monochromatic look. To get more into the holiday spirit, I added some gold accessories like this spiked choker and chain link ear cuff. Wearing knee-high boots and thigh high socks will give more of an urban vibe... plus, it will keep you warm! Holiday parties are always a perfect excuse to go overboard with glitter, so a dark palette with black glitter eyeshadow would work just fine along with a combination of gold and black nail polish. Complete this edgy look with a subtle nude lip color and voluminous wavy hair.
3. Let It Snow
Here's one featuring a big winter fashion trend this year - faux fur. If a full-on fur jacket is too overwhelming for you, try a vest layered over a black turtleneck thermal. This outfit is a bit on the casual side but still quite sophisticated, so I think it would look great for Christmas parties with friends or even for work. Black high-waisted jeans will turn casual into dressy especially with these strappy caged heels. I kept the accessories quite simple with a timeless black and gold purse and knot stud earrings. The Naked 2 palette's taupe shades will go perfectly with this outfit as well as deep burgundy lips. Once again, add some glitter to your nails to show your festive spirit! Lastly, finish off with an effortless messy bun to flaunt those earrings.
4. O Holy Night
This one's more of a formal holiday outfit, perhaps for work or a large-scale event. I paired a form-fitting dress with a long creme blazer to add a classy touch. You'll need a lot of warmth since it's a bare-legged outfit, so adding a fur snood will provide just enough and plus, it makes anyone look polished! A pair of minimalistic strappy heels will elongate your bare legs and a nude cross body bag will balance out the length of the dress. Also, some rhinestone stud earrings would look great with a sleek top bun. For makeup, the Naked Basics' matte eyeshadows are perfect for this formal look along with this stunning opal nail polish with subtle glitter. Lastly, finish the look with Emcosmetic's matte lipstick in "Wine Stain," which is the perfect shade of red for the holidays.
5. Home for the Holidays
If you've seen my past outfit ideas, you'd know that I can't leave a blog post without incorporating a vintage or urban-inspired outfit. So, here's one for the ladies who are laid back but aren't willing to sacrifice style. If going fancy just isn't your thing, you might want to opt for this one especially if you're going to a kickback with a few friends. It still has some festive elements, like the combination of red and white, but it's definitely the most comfortable and casual one out of the bunch. My favorite outerwear year-round would be the kimono cardigan, which pretty much defines my fashion sense, so I threw that in here. A frilly sheath dress would look nice underneath with some black opaque tights. Also, you can't go any more casual with a pair of simple black ankle boots. For accessories, I added a burgundy floppy hat for an urban vibe and a pair of fringe earrings to maintain the boho-chic style. I figured that plum smokey eyes would be great for this look, so the Lorac Pro palette will do since it has a balanced variety of earthy mattes and shimmers. Lastly, go with deep wine nail polish and a soft mauve lip color.
That's all for this holiday fashion guide! I tried to make it as diverse as possible, so I hope you at least got a sense of what to wear to your family parties and/or kickbacks.
