holiday party outfits - 15 chic looks to choose from | 40plusstyle.com

It’s that time of year again that always seems to sneak up on us…holiday party season. From office festivities to family and friends, the social commitments go up as does the challenge to find something unique, comfortable, and chic to wear. Let me give you some ideas!

Today I guide you through 15 holiday outfits and 5 makeup looks that fall into five different style personalities (artsy/eclectic, bohemian, classic, minimalist, and trendy).  From super formal to more low key affairs, the key to selecting the perfect outfit is combining the tone of the event with what you feel most comfortable and beautiful wearing.

In particular, I highlight different types of combinations you can select for the perfect holiday party look:

  • Dresses: You can never really go wrong with a well tailored dress in a length that elongates your frame
  • Pants and a beautiful top: Pants can look just as chic and dressy as a dress, if you select the right pair. One big advantage is that you can mix and match both items so you could swap them around for different parties.
  • Jumpsuit: While trickier to fit and get right, jumpsuits can create an absolutely stunning and unique look.
  • Skirts and a top: This may be a good option if you like to wear a knitted sweater and have a full or straight skirt you would like to wear. The skirt immediately dresses up the top.

From eclectic to au courant styling, let’s explore how to bring your style personality into the holiday party season

For work related Christmas parties I prefer to glam it up with a long sparkly gown but for home parties I prefer to wear dressy wide legged pants with a sparkly top.

I love the CLASSIC Style – what a wonderful post! In my opinion, the Dresses are much nicer in USA than in Germany. Last week I orderd my first Dress in the States – now I’m looking forward how gorgeous it will look like on me :-). Greetings from Munich – Martina

I love a glittering dreess but a jumpsuit is perhaps also a great idea! I will show you when I bought my Christmas outfit!

The last look (the sequinned leggings) is way to much … Don’t know a woman, who would wear that! (Normal) german women don’t like to overdress and prefer Anorak and sensible shoes 🙁

I agree with Petra about the sequinned leggings. (Normal) French women don’t like to overshine and prefer boring black classic outfits ;))
Talking about classic, I like very much the #Look 3. The Alice + Olivia top is a very good idea. You don’t need to add jewelry or anything else with it!

I went to a party last month and wore my royal blue/black fit and flare dress with a statement necklace, black velvet ankle strap pumps and a black shrug (same outfit I wore to an evening wedding last spring). Since I live in a small community I need to come up with something new for holiday parties on the 10th and 17th. I may go with a look similar to the black dress (Classic group). Not sure about that 3rd look yet!

I adore that feather petrol/black mini dress. But of course I do not want to wear that anymore. Soooo cool though.
