Another party, another cocktail dress, right? Not so fast. If you want something classy and fresh to wear to this year’s holiday soirée, there are loads of dressy black jumpsuits perfect for holiday parties.
Here’s a look at what’s trending and flattering for women like us.
1. Black Ruffled Jumpsuit
Ruffles on blouses and dresses have been a big hit this fall, and now we’re seeing this flirty, feminine detailing showing up on sleek black jumpsuits. You’ll see frills on jumpsuit necklines, on sleeves, or in this case, above, across the tummy and hips. This gorgeous peplum style gives this jumpsuit a soft, romantic presence.
Cap sleeves are your answer when you want a bit of arm coverage, but you don’t want to wear sleeves, plus they tend to broaden the shoulders making your waist look smaller visually. This jumpsuit is classic/romantic and would also be a fabulous choice to wear to a wedding.
2. Black Velvet Jumpsuit
I’ve been writing a lot about velvet lately, and that’s because it’s the perfect fabric for this time of year. Nothing says holiday dressing more than luxe velvet, so it’s not surprising that this black velvet halter jumpsuit shouts a sophisticated holiday style.
This jumpsuit is deceptively simple. An easy-to-wear and super comfortable black velvet jumpsuit with a gorgeous tassel tie belt and a halter neckline give it a sexy touch of Hollywood glam. (Doesn’t this remind you of something Cher once wore in the ’70s?)
Go with upscale accessories, crystal drop earrings to emphasize the neckline, embellished heels, and a sparkly gold bag that pops the whole look.
3. Black Lace Jumpsuit
The glow from a roaring fire, a glittering Christmas tree, a glass of holiday cheer in hand…Picture a lace jumpsuit at this year’s holiday cocktail party. Lace is ageless, and it always looks unique and appropriate for dressy occasions. This fabric-blocked lace jumpsuit is stunning and practical too. For Christmas or New Year’s, you can’t go wrong with this one.
4. Black Off the Shoulder Jumpsuit
When you want to look sexy, but you’re not into letting it all hangout, a great solution is a jumpsuit with an alluring off-the-shoulder neckline. This year there is plenty to choose from.
5. Black Long-Sleeved Jumpsuits
I know, I know… When self-conscious about their arms, it seems impossible to find cocktail wear with sleeves. Fortunately, I’ve seen a few black jumpsuits that give you some arm coverage, so you’ll feel confident and classy.
6. Black Sparkly Jumpsuits
You don’t have to sparkle as bright as a Christmas tree to light up the holiday party. Here’s a jumpsuit like a classic black canvas with just a touch of glitter and glam. Add some glitter pumps, shoes, and pretty silver jewelry to complement this sparkly black belt that highlights your waist and shows off your feminine figure!
