How to dress for holiday parties

Holidayoufits

Christmas is right around the corner and the holiday parties are in full swing for most of us! Whether it be an office party with your crazy coworkers or an elegant soirée, dressing for the occasion is an absolute must.

And while you’re chatting it up with your neighbors or friends, (a glass of wine in one hand and a mouthful of Brie in the other) you’re celebrating the best time of the year in impeccable style.

When choosing looks for holiday parties, two things come to my mind: being comfortable and wearing classic looks with modern twists.

Jumpsuits are classic and are flattering on almost any body type. I found this one half-price at my favorite boutique in Hattiesburg. It was a steal! With the fleather jacket, it’s a cross between professional, yet modern and so chic! And since I decided to go for an all-black ensemble, daring shoes is a must mixed with metallic elements.

This look is keepin’ things casual with thick black leggings and warm layers. I love the simplicity of this outfit, but once you get to the bag and shoes, it’s a game-changing outfit that adds fun details to the look. It’s a cozy, yet fashionable way to spread some cheer with your best buds.

Swanky soirée >>

One of the reasons I love Christmastime so dearly is because we have an excuse to dress elegantly and take on the evening ahead. With a crimson holiday dress and a versatile scarf, this is a look that can take you to the finest party in town or a crisp night for holiday-light seeing.
