The Holiday Style Guide: What To Wear For Every Holiday Party & Special Occasion

When you’re out with friends at a holiday cocktail party, toasting to the season and hitting the dance floor, it’s time to shine in a dazzling embellished sheath dress, sexy body-con mini-dress, or shift dress. Sequined dresses add that extra sparkle to any holiday style, catching the light at every turn and stealing the spotlight in photos.

Nothing says the holidays quite like a pop of red! This season, have a few items in your closet that you can dress up or down. Wear color like green, red, blue etc by pairing a bright color bags or shoes or going even bolder with another color—because yes, you can color block.

December and January are the time to add a little something extra to your outfits. Fur, velvet, metallics and sequins are all fair game even if they’re not in your rotation 365 days a year. If you need a little extra inspiration for your holiday outfits, check out all the holiday looks that I wore this season and also ready shop. 



When heading to Church on Christmas Day, it’s a great time to add polished glamour and feminine charm to your holiday style. The key to keeping your outfit Church-appropriate is to choose a cut that is more on the conservative side, like a sleeveless a line or fit-and-flare dress with a high neck line and knee-length skirt. Shimmering brocade and metallic jacquard fabrics inject a dose of shine into your holiday style, without making you look like a NYE disco ball.



No matter how you celebrate the holidays, when figuring out what to wear to each holiday party and special occasion, keep in mind the nature of the event, the location and time of day, and the types of guests who will be in attendance. Cheers to celebrating the holidays in style!
