Houses decorated with bright lights, the scent of cinnamon, and the feeling of cheer... ah yes, the holidays are upon us! You know what that means, it’s time start rocking around the Christmas tree y’all, and nothing says holly jolly like a good festive outfit!

Get Inspired

During the holidays you are constantly surrounded by fashion inspiration! When it comes to colors, incorporate the deep greens of the Christmas trees, poinsettia reds, and the metallic of garland into your outfit!

Fabrics get really fun. Tis the season to sparkle and shine, literally. It’s hard to go wrong with sequins and glitter during the holidays. This is also the only time you can get away with a touch of velvet (like a tree skirt) here and there, so be festive!

Finally, accessorize! Don’t laugh, but jewelry, purses, and shoes are like the outfit ornaments! Especially your jewelry, it’s the perfect chance to add in those golds and silvers to your outfit!

My Party Outfits Picks

Classic and cute: Red or green lace dress, shimmery black pumps, tights, tailored blazer, and a long golden necklace! Add some loose curls to the ends of your hair and wear natural make-up!

Sexy, trendy, cool: Deep maroon embellished top, with a sparkly sequined skirt, black tights, and booties! Stock up on the arm candy and paint your nails emerald!

Sophisticated socialite: Black sheer dress, with hunter green or a patterned tight, and velvety pumps! Don't forget to add a pop of red lipstick!

Urban wild child: Metallic shorts, black tights and pumps, and a sheer embellished top! (Obviously, add a tank or bandeau under the top) Add a smokey eye and nude lips, and the rest is up to you!

If these looks aren't for you...

Add One of the Latest Trends:

Leather: A red leather skirt, your black leather jacket or vest, pants.

Fur: vest or jacket, maybe even a purse!

Booties: I'm personally a fan any super high, wintery booties.

A touch of leopard print: sweater, belt, purse, anything!

Peplum: tops, dress, skirts! Get crazy with sparkles or go simple with a black dress and add those festive accessories!

Winter white

Click through the slide show for some ideas! And finally, here are some tips to make sure your evening goes smoothly.


Spanx tights make your shape look amazing (even after those delicious finger foods and champagne) and they're durable! Everyone should own them.

Add a boyfriend blazer if it's chilly (finger crossed) outside! It's not too bulky like a peacoat and is easily removed I love the hunter green Urban Outfitters blazer in the slide show.

Don't be scared to mix and match textures. Lace and sequins are totally acceptable!

Choice a crossbody purse! They're cute and chances are you won't lose it, even if you sip a little too much eggnog! ;)
