Festivities are for mingling with old friends, catching up with families, and posing for selfies. If you want to start the holiday season off strong, you’ll need fabulous outfits befitting the occasion. I know you’ll want to make a statement, and it doesn’t have to be a choice between staying warm and looking chic. From fresh layering ideas to quirky accessories, shop for pieces that are equally eye-catching and practical!
1. Sequined Party Dress with Slash Detail from UUZONE
Just imagine how twinkly this bodycon dress will look at night! Sequin lovers will fall hard for this night-out look flocked with artful sequins for a shimmering effect, and complemented with a slash detail. Simply add tights, sock boots and a puffy jacket when the temps start to dip.
2. Long-Sleeved Two-Tone Wrap Dress from GUMZZI
You don’t have to change radically or overthink your outfit for a party. Just throw on this universally flattering wrap dress and call it a day! The jagged trim and color-blocking are striking, and the long-sleeved style comes just in time, as the weather has taken a recent turn for the cold. All it takes are a few simple accessories to jazz it up for a get-together.
3. Off-Shoulder Tulle Midi Dress from Marlangrouge
You’ll feel like a star while staying cozy in this cream-hued midi! With an off-the-shoulder wrap bodice, tied waist and tutu midi skirt, it lets you channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with minimal fuss.
4. Floral Maxi Shirtdress from LOLOten
Regardless of the season, a casual maxi dress is an undisputed wardrobe essential. You can mix this V-neck floral shirtdress with a turtleneck, boots and puffy outerwear when it’s freezing outside. With the dress’s relaxed silhouette, the vibe you’re going for is probably low-key. A neutral-colored pair of flat boots are clearly a winning complement.
5. Long Cardigan from Autunno
A sleek duster-length cardigan will dress up any tee-and-jeans combo – not to mention the layering potential it’ll offer to winter looks. This patterned topper is full of autumnal cheer and perfect for the holiday season. Layer it under a big coat to add warmth and color to your outfit.
6. Chunky-Striped Mock-Neck Top from QNIGIRLS
Layer a statement mock turtleneck under a summer dress for your next get-together. Not only can you upcycle favorite looks from last season, but you’ll be saved the trouble of toting a heavy scarf. I love how the chunky stripes contrast with all-black separates.
7. Collarless Faux Fur Jacket from migunstyle
A statement fur jacket is the perfect way to dress up and add an element of texture to winter looks. This mock two-piece style earns street style cred with its collared bike jacket underlay. Teaming with a simple tee and denims lends a casual but sultry look.
8. Voluminous Coat from NAIN
Two coats are better than one when it’s freezing outside! I can get behind this voluminous jean coat which serves as a statement piece and an insouciant second layer. Simply wear over a long, slim cardigan and lend shape to the look with a belt.
9. Corgi Socks from Oz Garden
Cover as much leg as possible if you plan on wearing short boots. I’d double up sheer tights with cute ankle socks like this Corgi-embellished pair. They add an unexpectedly adorable detail to any outfit.
10. Thigh-High Suede Boots with Tied Cuffs from DABAGIRL
Since they never really go out of style, over-the-knee boots are a key silhouette to invest in. A versatile suede pair like this needs nothing more than a simple black dress to step into high fashion territory. By adding an element of proportion and texture that your trusty ankle boots cannot, the switch-up can make a world of difference!
