What To Wear To All Those Friggin' Holiday Parties

November 2, 2010 by Justine Schwartz

In the height of wedding season, we told you what to wear to all those friggin’ weddings, and now that holiday party season is nigh, we need to equip you with plenty of affordable, party outfit options, too. Check out our guides to holiday attire:

Office Holiday Party:


If you’re looking for an option that is still mostly modest, with a dash of fun (hot co-worker to impress?), this Maggy London One Shoulder Dress ($128) won’t make your boss blush, but still commands the right amount of attention. Pair it with some sparkly stud earrings like these Juicy Couture Pave Pyramid Studs ($48).

Angling for a raise and want to be seen as a “power player” in your office? This J.Crew Crystal tracks necklace ($58, down from $78) is a statement piece that will have the big bosses remembering your name. In lieu of an open-toe (an office no-no), opt for a sexy pump like these Steve Madden Trinitie pumps ($79.95, down from $89.95).

Black-Tie Holiday Party:

If you have a black tie invite (lucky you!), you’ll need a floor length evening gown for the occasion. This Lauren by Ralph Lauren Dress “Chana” One-Shoulder Long Dress ($220) is perfect for just that. You can never go wrong with an extra long strand of pearls like this well-priced Kenneth Jay Lane Pearl Rope Necklace ($154).

You can’t just throw any old winter coat over a ball gown, so make sure you have a faux fur or fur stole for the big night. This INC International Concepts Faux Fur Wrap Cape ($129) is great because it looks like it costs much more than it really does.You’ll need drop or dangling earrings for black tie, and these under-$100 Juicy Couture Crystal Chandelier Earrings ($78) are pretty friggin’ perfect.

Party With The Girls:

Now, for the fun part: if you have a parties with friends, get a sparkly dress like this Ella Moss “Majesty” Sequin Tank Dress ($159). Pair it with these Commando Matte Opaque Tights ($34), and you’re good to go (a hint: opaque tights are the hosiery equivalent of sweatpants – they hide all sins.)

For holidays with friends, don’t bother with the strappy sandal, opt for a much cooler bootie like these Vince Camuto “Alexia” Ankle Booties ($129). Top off the look with a cool blingy bracelet like this J.Crew Soleil bracelet ($58) – it’s perfect priced and will definitely light up the night.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party:


If you’ve never been to an ugly Christmas sweater party, I highly recommend throwing one. When else can you wear grandma’s hand-me-down elf sweater? If you don’t already have one, this Quacker Factory Happy Dance Sweater ($48.50, down from $62) is perfect. Pair it with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Metal Bow Stud Earrings ($38) for an extra festive outfit.
