Christmas can be stressful. You have to decide what gifts to buy, what food to eat, what decorations to put up, and what to wear – and you also have to execute everything yourself. Just take a look at the mothers in A Bad Moms Christmas and I’m sure some of you will relate.

1. Faux Fur Jacket (+322%)
Cozy, warm and versatile, a faux fur jacket can save you a lot of trouble with mixing and matching. Make this your statement piece by choosing a sharp color like burnt orange or pine green; or get one in plain black or white to complement the rest of your outfit.
2. Velvet Dress (+159%)
Velvet is certainly the go-to material for this season’s party dresses. Wear a velvet spaghetti dress or wrap dress over a fitted rib-knit sweater and cinch with a belt. You now have a trendy look that doesn’t need too much effort. The best thing is you can keep these items for layering throughout the season!
3. Tulle Skirt (+127%)
Pinners still love the ballerina look, proven by the popularity of the puffy tulle skirt. Wear a fitted off-shoulder top with a midi tulle skirt set high at your waist and finish with ankle-tie heels. Swing the skirt as you dance!
A mohair beret is all you need to bring out that festive mood. Get one in a bright color or plaid, and don’t forget to secure it with hair pins.
5. Metallic Skirt
Add some shine to your party wear with a pleated metallic skirt of midi length. Make sure to keep the rest of your outfit muted so the focus is on the lamé.
6. Pleated Skirt
We just can’t get enough of pleats! While a sturdy box-pleat skirt is a blast, a soft, accordion-pleat version exudes feminine flair. Go for a metallic version to make it look even more three-dimensional.
7. Sequined Blazer + Little Black Dress
It doesn’t feel like Christmas when there’s no shimmer or sparkle in your outfit and makeup! Wear a sequined blazer against your little black dress for a stunning contrast.
8. Red Dress
A classy red dress never fails to impress on festive occasions. Go monochrome by wearing red heels and red lipstick.
