How to Dress Comfortably for Holiday Parties

Thursday, November 23, 2017

The Holiday party attire problem. You know the one. You want to look all cute and sparkly but it's cold and you also want to stuff your face with all the yummy foods of the season. So what's a girl to wear when she wants to stay warm, cozy and essentially feel like she's wearing pajamas when it's time to hit all those holiday parties? I've got you covered.

First up, If you have not checked out these new "Easy Pants" from J. Crew, they are a must. 40% off site wide right now btw. They look like tailored pants from the front but the back is elastic! Heck yeah. They come in so many pretty shades and textures. I cant get over how versatile the black lace ones would be with literally any sweater, a sparkly top or a button down. And the pink velvet are hands down my fav and you would expect. The velvet is buttery soft and the shade of pink is just dusty enough to not be overtly girly. I can't wait to wear mine with this super soft stretch silk star top.

Next up is this glittery jersey dress! I tried it on and its amazingly comfortable, not at all scratchy, as you would usually associated with a sparkly dress, and has just the most subtle shimmer of gold, it really almost just looks black from a distance. The shape is flattering and keeps you covered which equals WARM! and the price being under $35 (on sale even more with Black Friday codes on site!) doesn't hurt either.

Your going to need a cute comfy and forgiving top to wear with these fancy new pants so I say make a statement with color and style. This ruffle sleeve sweatshirt I own in baby blue, also comes in black and I bet no one would even notice you were wearing a sweatshirt if you had on a fun top like this! You can always go with a bold color like this Free People sweater I have in hot pink but the red is just perfect for the holidays, don't you think? And if you're already thinking lace or velvet pnts are statement enough and you want to play down the top half, you cant go wrong with a classic white button down with the sleeves cuffed. Want something in between? Try that stretch silk star top I was talking about.

On to shoes. I pretty much wear exclusively flats or heels under 2 inches at this stage in my life and am totally ok with it. I love to have flats that pack a little punch so they are not too basic. These raspberry velvet ones are such a fun color and these tie-maryjane style low heels dress up any pants. I'm also loving these black multi-buckle flats that also come in cheetah and are on sale for $60. Even with all those straps, they are surprisingly comfortable and easy to put on with the easy access back zipper.

All these items are pretty interchangeable so you can mix and match them for multiple parties. So lets review. Deceptively comfy pants paired with a simple or statement top and a pair of interesting flats make for the perfect holiday outfit that you will feel ready to party in all night long!
