Seeing friends and neighbors at a casual get-together over the holidays is one of the best parts of Christmas. It’s fun to catch up over a drink, and enjoy a few holiday goodies (I probably do a little too much enjoying! LOL).
If you’re wondering what to wear to a holiday open house, an afternoon cookie exchange, or just cocktails around the fire, here are 5 suggestions for to how to look upscale casual and festive at holiday time.
1. Look Luxurious in Lace
When friends get together at a neighbourbood party for a little Christmas cheer, how about celebrating in this chic tiered lace top? This is a super glam piece that dresses up even the most casual jeans, or if you prefer wear it with velvet jeans and sparkly flats for a festive holiday look!
2. Cuddle Up in a Cozy Sweater Dress
No fancy cocktail dress required for a casual Christmas get together, but you can still look pretty and feminine in a cute knit sweaterdress. A sweaterdress with semi-opaque or opaque black tights and tall boots equals the three C’s: Casual, Classy, Cozy.
3. Look Vibrant in Velvet
Velvet is always a beautiful way to create a gorgeous holiday outfit anywhere you live. This stunning taupe velvet knit tank top and cardigan with the stylish pleats is a perfect look with sleek white pants. If you are going down south for the holidays, this is a great look to tuck into your suitcase. Wear it with nude or blush accessories and some gold jewelry and you have a very elegant, but relaxed look.
4. Wow them a Jewel Toned Blouse
A pretty silky blouse is an easy way to up the glamour during the holidays and one with elegant and on-trend statement sleeves dials up your style even more. Deep, rich, jewel tones will look festive with jeans or black pants and light up your style this holiday season.
4. Deck the Halls in a Festive Holiday Print
Gaudy Christmas themed sweaters with Rudolph and Santa seem tacky and out of date, but that doesn’t mean you have to forget about festive holiday prints all together. Instead opt for something understated and sophisticated like this cute stripe tie-sleeve blouse with the subtle candy cane vibe. This top is perfect for the holidays but it’s not so over-the-top that you’re limited to wearing it just at Christmas.
5. Don the Colors of the Season – Christmas Tree Green
Nothing says Ho Ho Ho! more than red and green, the colors of Christmas. Wearing a red or green sweater, blouse or dress like this knit ruffle dress is one of the simplest way to get your festive on. Styled like I’ve done it here, with a dressier shoe and bag and gold jewelry, this dress is perfect for a slightly more formal open house. For a more casual look throw on a cozy scarf and a low-heeled boot and you’re good to go.
What will you be wearing to casual get-togethers this holiday season?
