What to Wear: Holiday Dressing

What to Wear: Holiday Dressing

by Melissa Magsaysay

The social swirl of the holidays has officially started and while this time of year can be incredibly exciting, lining up event appropriate looks can be daunting.

Getting ahead of a full calendar by planning and maximizing outfits is the best way to get through the holidays all while being best dressed and least stressed.

Here, outfit suggestions for everywhere your holiday schedule may take you.

Happy Hour

Post-work parties are already starting and it’s key to wear something a little more elevated than your usual office look. Think about a comfortable blouse with a bit of sparkle and a timeless leather jacket done in a deep burgundy.

Meet the Parents

It’s possible you’re spending the holidays with a family other than your own (and perhaps meeting said other family for the first time.) Make an impression in bold color or a classic wrap dress done in a strong and versatile print.

Departure Lounge

Holiday travel in any form will inevitably be incredibly stressful, so why not look great and be comfortable while making your way to your destination? Try a statement making coat that looks great over, well, anything and a stylish animal print sweatshirt and sweatpants.

Holiday Ball

For galas and extra fancy gatherings, a gown is in order. But the modern gown isn’t necessarily a floor length number filled with crinoline, but rather something sleek and cut to highlight curves.

Festive Friend’s Gathering

The kind of event you’re likely to have the most of, and arguably one of the most important. Let your holiday spirit shine in classic shades of red and green, plus a perfectly tailored tux inspired blazer that dresses up even a simple pair of jeans.
