December 3rd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 8 Holiday Outfits That Don’t Require a Dress
It’s officially December and the start of holiday party season! The holidays are stressful enough without having to add the extra pressure about what to wear to your office Christmas party, your best friend’s white elephant gift exchange, and the final fashion decision of the year, the dreaded New Year’s Eve outfit debacle. A dress is a traditional fall back for a holiday party. This year, step out of the norm and create a new comfort zone around, well, comfort. Take a look at some of my favorite non-dress party looks to inspire your holiday style this year.
Take a cue from Aureta and put on a pair of metallic party pants.
Too cold to take off your favorite oversized chunky knit? Simply throw on a pair of skinnies, chic booties, and a statement clutch and you’re party ready.
Leather never fails. A pair of legging pants or leggings will dress up any simple sweater or blouse for an edgy holiday look.
Rich and luxurious, velvet is the ideal festive fabric for the holiday season.
When in doubt, add sparkle. Sequins are essential for holiday dressing, whether accented with accessories or daring with a sequin blazer.
Go bold with a statement-making, vibrant colored jumpsuit.
Can holiday athleisure be done? Yes, yes it can. Create a monochromatic outfit to elevate your joggers and add an oversized teddy coat and heels.
Want a little swing in your step? A muted jewel-tone skirt with a chunky knit and booties can go a long way this season.
