December 19th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 5 Unexpected Holiday Party Outfits

With the holiday season in full effect, you’re probably running around trying to get last-minute gifts, juggling multiple holiday parties, and trying to spend quality time with loved ones.  The last thing you want to stress about is what to wear while you’re already overextending yourself. You can certainly go for the tried-and-true formula—semi-formal, a dress or slacks, something with muted or jewel tones. Or, you can throw all the rules out the window, have fun and enjoy yourself in a bold look!

Below, I’ve rounded up five unexpected holiday party outfits to inspire you to celebrate the season in extra style!


Merry & Bright
Metallics are trending this season, and what better way to celebrate the holidays than by sparkling all night? Try mixing different tones and textures with your metallic pieces to create a unique look that will work for all your holiday parties.


Turn Up the Volume
Voluminous ruffles will make any outfit party-worthy! Don’t be afraid to mix two pieces that have ruffles, like Lauren does in this flouncy festive outfit!


Pretty, Pretty Prints
A fun print is an easy way to make a fashion statement! Beth’s velvet floral suit is amazing on it’s own, but pairing it with a statement takes it to next-level belle of the holiday ball status!

Velvet Revival
You can’t go wrong with velvet for the holidays, but instead of the wrap dress silhouette we’ve been seeing a lot lately, try a velvet maxi slip dress for versatility. Layer it with either a casual tee or a simple thin turtleneck for an easy yet chic party look.
