5 Casual Holiday Party Outfits with Black Pants

What do you wear to a casual holiday party that’s relaxed but chic? Whether you are dropping by a neighbor’s Open House or having Christmas cocktails and dinner with close friends, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black pants and a festive top. Here are 5 Casual, Classy Holiday party outfits that look fabulous with black pants.

Holiday Party - Black Dress Pants

1. Ruffle Sleeve Top + Black Dress Pants

The simplest, most classic dress pants hanging in your closet can quickly transform into a gorgeous holiday look when you add something sparkly and feminine. I love this glamorous ruffle sleeve top in inky black velvet. Do you see the tiny rhinestone studs that run along the neckline and the end of the sleeves?

It’s pure Christmas glam but in an elegantly understated way. Add some glittery loafers with a pretty bow to dress up your feet. Top this look off with a black jeweled clutch and crystal earrings for evening polish.

  1. Even mini purses can be cumbersome at a party – trying to hold juggle purses, drink, or hors d’oeuvres. Is it still cool to have a bag with a shoulder strap, or should one ditch the purse altogether? My problem would be the need for a compact; my nose is shinier than Rudolph’s, so I need a touch-up a couple of times during an event. Also, my lipstick won’t stay put, so I need a touch-up with this.

  2. Hi ladies, what should I wear for a New Year’s Eve party at a family member’s home where I’m not allowed to wear shoes? I feel completely naked and embarrassed.
    Thank you very much!!

    1. Hi Leticia, Is it because they fear you tracking in the dirt? What about a new pair of shoes that have not been worn outside or shoes where you’ve washed the soles? If not, I would wear just a couple of slip-on ballet-style slippers. It’s their house, so it is only polite to respect their wishes. Have fun.

      1. Hi Happy Holidays!

        Remember softie socks in your bag; pull on whether you’re wearing tights, leggings, or dressy pants.
        Work, be happy with yourself!

  3. I love these outfits, especially the tops and flats. My only negative comment is, let’s dump the jeans for the holidays. Some nice black slacks say “class.”

  4. I think these looks would work well even if the invitation didn’t say how to dress. These looks are all classy and look comfy. They’d fit in anywhere. I wish I’d seen this in time to shop for tonight’s party!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
