Did you RSVP Yes and now wrecking your brain trying to find out what to wear to a holiday party? Deciding on your party OOTN (Outfit of the Night) doesn’t have to be difficult.

To begin, you need to nail down the dress code. There are many types of holiday parties; formal black-tie parties, festive casual parties and even ugly sweater parties.

If the invitation does not specify the dress code, it’s always a good idea to reach out to the hosts for any specific dress code instructions.

WHAT TO WEAR TO A HOLIDAY PARTY

WHAT TO WEAR TO OFFICE HOLIDAY PARTY

When deciding what to wear to an office holiday party, there are a few things to consider. First, the venue. Will the party be hosted at fun venue like Top Golf or Dave and Buster’s or will it be at a restaurant?

Some office parties may even be held at the company office building itself. This will greatly influence what you should wear to the holiday party.

If you are going somewhere casual and laid back, you could wear jeans and a festive sweater with cute heels. You want to wear something that you’ll be comfortable wearing while doing an activity, like golfing or playing an arcade.

If the party is at a restaurant or venue that is a little more elevated, you could wear a dress and knee high boots. If the party is more on the formal side, swap the boots for heels.

For formal holiday office parties, long dresses are a standard choice. Yes, you could definitely wear pants if you choose. Just look for a classic pair of pants, more on the flowy side, which will elevate the look.

You could pair with a matching suit jacket with sequin or satin to make your outfit look more festive and less boardroom.

In case you’re needing some holiday outfit ideas for a more dressy event, here are some festive, sparkly choices to inspire your next look.

WHAT TO WEAR TO HOLIDAY PARTY AT SOMEONE’S HOUSE

If you are wondering what to wear to a holiday party at someone’s house, consult the host. Ask them if the occasion is more laid back or formal.

You will want to adhere to your hosts dress code suggestions. Chances are, most holiday parties at a home are more casual and laid back. I would still suggest you consult with your host.

You can wear dark wash jeans and a festive top. We really love this season’s hot sheer fitted tops with trousers or jeans. Style with cute and comfortable flats like this year’s hot trend, ballet flats, or my favorite, slingbacks.

Dress up a casual outfit with gorgeous jewelry and accessories like a fun holiday bag.

If you’d like a more elevated casual outfit idea, swap the jeans for a skirt or dress. Skirts are really making a comeback for 2023 and look great with fitted tops and sweaters.

You could also wear stockings depending on the weather. Pair with knee high boots or heels for a more dressy look.
