Styles FOR CHRISTMAS PARTY OUTFITS
During the holiday season, there are so many trending festive styles that hit the shelves and though some of the trends are yearlong trends, there are a few styles that you’ll want to work into your Christmas party outfits this season because they are guaranteed to WOW.
SEQUINSSequins are a huge trend this holiday season espcially when it comes to styling sequin pants. For your Christmas party outfit, style sequins in simplistic ways that will leave your outfit looking completely stunning. With the simple styling of sequins, you’ll not only shine bright but create a chic outfit that will have all eyes on you.
SATINIf you’re looking for a style that is sultry, but not too risky, satin is where you want to go. Slip dresses styled for the holiday season as well as satin tops are great pieces to style in your Christmas party outfits. During the holiday season, you see a lot of maxi and midi satin dresses. Satin fabric lays so nicely and is very comfortable to wear during the holiday season. And if you end up with a satin slip dress, all you have to do is add a layer or two and it becomes a winter outfit that will WOW.
SEE THROUGHThis sultry but extra chic and sophisticated style can be seen within dresses, tops and even some pants. This style has become very popular in gowns and jumpsuits where you can have a nude color bodice or base layer that is overlayed by lace or another see through material. Pair the look with a stunning pair of shoes, confidence, and stun the crowd with this trend.
EMBELLISHMENTSIf you’re someone who loves rhinestones in your outfit than you’ll defintely want to rock this style. There are so many pieces that arise during the holiday season that have embelishments that have the outfit standing out. Look for sweaters with embellishments around the neckline that make it lookl ike there is a build in sweater or dresses that have embellishments weaved into the style and look shiny and bright in your embellished Christmas party outfit.
HUES OF BLUEBlue is a standout cololr during the festive season, especially for those who try to stray away from the reds, moss greens, and golds that are typical of the holiday season. Wearing a hue of blue matches the Winter trend and has you standing out among the rest at a holiday party – especially as everyone is wearing darker colored Christmas party outfits.
VELVETVelvet is another popular trend that is plentiful during the holiday season. You’ll see velvet in dresses, tops, and bottons and in various hues, so it is very easy to make an outfit that is perfect for you. You can style velvet, depending on the piece that you have, formally or informally, so depending on the type of Christmas party you are attending, you can’t go wrong with picking out a velvet piece. Plus, during the winter season, who doesn’t love wearing a fabric that also keeps you warm.
Shopping FOR CHRISTMAS PARTY OUTFITS
Whether you’re looking to style the sequin pant trend this holiday season or go a little more sultry with the see-through look, you’ll want to take these shopping tips into consideration. Shopping for holiday outfits is something that you typically want to do early but it’s never too late to start grabbing your holiday looks. I actually tend to shop for Christmas party outfits throughout the season depending on the theme of the parties. If there is a trend that you know you’ll want to style this Winter season, you’ll want to make sure to search for the style early on and try to snag it super early. There have been quite a few outfits that I am still waiting on to arrive because they are back-ordered and I ordered them in early November. For some of the more common styles such as sequins and embellishments, you can wait and shop in stores or online throughout the season as those trends are usually kept in stock and stay on the shelves in various sizes longer up until New Year’s Eve.
