The season of Christmas parties is approaching and the inevitable question is what to wear? This is actually not a very easy question to answer because every country and culture is so different and so is every party. So in this refresher article I will give you some options. You can even shop them!
- Go all-out chic in a party dress.
- Keep it simple and chic in an effortless and top and pants ensemble.
- Get festive Wear those same tops with a nice chic skirt or go for a festive jumper.
- Dress up your casual jeans with a sparkly top and make it extra chic with the right accessories.
1. The party dress
I’m definitely in the dressy camp and a nice party dress is always chic. This is the time of year when you can really go all-out with sparkles, eye catching metallics, and fun color combinations, which is heaps of fun! If it’s cold where you are and you want to make sure you don’t freeze at your party, choose a dress with sleeves and wear a cami underneath.
2. Simple & effortlessly chic
If separates are more your thing, then dressy pants (such as these wide leg trousers by J.W. Anderson) paired with easy to put together tops are a chic choice. The dramatic silhouette of the wide leg trousers will add instant glamour and sophistication to your look. Pair them with a contrasting blazer for an immediate haute look or add an extra layer of sparkle with a short sleeve sequined sweater.
3. Choose a skirt instead of pants
For a slightly dressier and more feminine look an a-line, straight, or lace skirt is your best bet. A statement making clutch will take things up a notch for an even more festive look. As an ode to the season, slip into a pair of bold, red pumps.
4. Casual chic
If all the above options are too dressy for you, you could even wear your favorite jeans to the party. I personally would go for your darkest and dressiest jeans. Make sure to choose a top that is dressier than your normal tops (this gorgeous Juan Carlos Obando blouse definitely qualifies!). A cocktail ring makes the perfect accessory.
5. Dress up with great accessories and fabulous shoes
Accessories are extra important at Christmas parties. Choose your fanciest shoes and your nicest clutch. Bonus points for selecting a conversation starting clutch (such as this stylishly unique gem by Rochas ). Sometimes that is all it takes to dress up a simple outfit and make it party-ready. They are extra important if you have chosen a casual chic outfit.
