Unexpected Holiday Party Outfits!

Holiday Party Looks

I covered the Holiday Party Uniform here. In this post, I wanted to show you some holiday party outfit options that are unexpected, unique and sexy! These work well for New Year’s Eve celebrations too.

Option #1 | Shorts Suit

Remember I talked about the shorts suit is a big fashion trend here? And, I wore a yellow shorts suit to my blogger conference here? I thought it would be REALLY fun and unexpected to try a velvet shorts suit for the holidays! I would wear this everywhere from out to dinner with friends… to a not-so-conservative office holiday party.

Option #2 | The Full-On Sequin Dress

This sequined mini dress from Express will work for your glitzy holiday cocktail parties, all of your New Year’s Eve parties… even a quick trip to Vegas! It’s FULL ON so only go this route if you are feeling very confident!! I love how even though it’s a mini, it has sleeves for extra warmth and coverage. You can also wear it with tights like I did to add even more warmth. If you do decide to pair it with booties, throw on a pair of snuggly crew socks over your tights to keep your tootsies warm and comfy!

Option #3 | Jeans (Yes, Jeans!)

You CAN dress up jeans for any of your holiday parties that aren’t too fancy. The beautiful thing about this look besides the cool factor… is how comfortable and warm you will be wearing it!! I paired some dark gray skinny jeans with the same 3/4 sleeve, velvet boyfriend blazer from the shorts suit look above. If you loved that concept, but don’t feel up to trying the shorts.. this is an awesome alternative!
