Holiday Party Attire

by ClearanceCharms

The holiday season is the best time of year for so many reasons – coming together with friends and family, giving gifts, and of course holiday parties! The biggest question of the season other than what presents to buy is what to wear to all the fabulous events! Since most would rather spend money on gifts than splurge on a new outfit, below are a few tips on how to create a holiday inspired look straight from your closet!

Some parties require little effort – for instance when dressing for an office party during or after hours, dress in something you would normally wear to work, but in holiday colors. A crimson sheath dress with a cardigan or shawl would be office party perfection. For a tacky sweater party – the dress attire is given, so go to your local thrift store and find the tackiest of tacky sweaters and just have fun with it!

For more formal occasions, try heavier fabrics in rich seasonal colors, such as a dark taffeta or velvet and don’t forget about sequins – an absolute must for the holiday. Layering is key! Layering will help keep you warm to and from the events without weighing you down once you arrive. Pair tights and a cardigan with your ensemble and winter coat – if you begin to get hot, you can remove layers, and if you are cold, you won’t have to wear a heavy jacket during the party to keep warm.

The key is to go with the flow while being functional and chic. If your significant other’s family spends Christmas morning in PJ’s, don’t show up in a cocktail dress – join in and wear red flannel or satin pajamas to be both festive and comfortable.

Remember that it is not about what you wear or how you look, the holidays are about being around those you love the most – the ones who have seen you in a sweatshirt and scrunchie before so don’t stress! Have fun and enjoy the company surrounding you! Happy holiday season!
