Dressy Holiday Tops to Wear With Jeans for Party Ready Style

Dressing for the holidays is always a mixed bag. Some years you need a cocktail dress and sky-high heels. Other years, a festive top and a pair of jeans will do.

With most of us staying close to home this year, the holidays will be more chill, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look chic! Here are five dressy holiday tops that add a touch of glitz and glamour to your favorite jeans.


Red Metallic holiday party top with jeans


1. Metallic Christmas Blouse

For many women, including me, it doesn’t feel like Christmas unless I wear red. I’m gaga about this stunning, flutter sleeve chiffon blouse.  It’s a great find because it’s so feminine and festive in Christmas red with a shiny foil dot print.

This looks fantastic worn with your blackest jeans at cocktail time. Keep the look classy with elegant suede and leather booties. Look at that sexy new heel! Add a classy designer bag with modern gold hardware. Top it off with rhinestone hoops and be the gal who lights up the room!

Green Velvet Holiday party top with jeans

2. Festive Green Velvet Top

Christmas is all about glamour, even if you are dressing casually. So go ahead, and wrap yourself up like a beautiful Christmas gift in this gorgeous, green velvet top.  Pretty smocking, a feminine criss-cross front, romantic sleeves, and an alluring off-the-shoulder neckline make this top a head-turner at any holiday gathering.

Holiday Tops with Jeans - Red Sequins

3. Shiny Sequin Top

November and December are your time to shine. Sequins are part of the fun and look fabulous paired with jeans. I’m showing you all these looks with black jeans since I like a dressier look, but you could also wear this peasant sequin top with blue jeans. I love this deep, rich wine color and this flowy peasant blouse style that is easy to wear.  Prefer another color? This top comes in silver sequins and black sequins too.

4.  Sheer Sleeve Black Party Top

Like most women, black is your go-to color for evenings and good reason. It’s slimming, elegant, and chic. (Be sure to wear makeup, so you don’t look washed out!) This lovely, balloon-sleeve black top is perfect for the gal who likes a simple, elegant look or for anyone who prefers to cover their arms. The sheer balloon sleeves are light, airy, romantic, and give great coverage. Bootcut Flare jeans flatter your figure and balance you out if you are a bit bottom-heavy.

5. Flirty, Fun Bell Sleeve Top

Christmas wouldn’t feel like Christmas without some frills and ruffles. This sparkly top with the dramatic ruffle sleeves will make you look like a Christmas angel.

This sparkly top looks luxurious with velvet jeans ( I have a pair of black velvet jeans from last year). Choose bow tie booties to complement this feminine look. Pretty accessories in silver and gray make for an chic evening outfit.
