What To Wear To A Christmas Party Based On Your Major At Brown

The opinions expressed in this article are the writer’s own and do not reflect the views of Her Campus.

‘Tis the season which means festive parties and soirées are upon us! Although it may feel like studying and finals are all-consuming, Christmas is imminent, so we must prepare our wardrobes for the upcoming yuletide cheer. Based on your major at Brown, I have organized outfit inspiration for any Christmas party you might attend. 

If you’re studying…

International & Public Affairs, Public Policy, or Public Health

You are curious and investigative with international events and human encounters. Your Christmas attire will likely include relevant fashion trends as you eagerly embrace newness. This year, you wear a dress or skirt with feathered details on the trim and add sparkly accessories and jewelry. 

Neuroscience, Chemistry, Biology, or Physics

You’re constantly on the go. From lab groups to exams, winter break is your time to relax. Your attire can be equal parts comfortable and celebratory if you wear a two-piece knit set. Select a color scheme and pair knitted pants with a complimentary sweater. Finish the look with faux fur mules for a festive touch that does not compromise your comfort. 

English, Classics, or Art History

You are inspired by the past. Opt for a classic and timeless cashmere or cable knit sweater dress enhanced by a fair isle pattern or pearl-appliqué. Juxtapose the cozy dress with knee-high suede boots for added warmth and style. 

Economics oR Business, Entrepreneurship & Organizations (BEO)

You are a businesswoman at heart. Wear your favorite houndstooth or plaid skirt and pair it with a fitted turtleneck. Complete the look with a statement collared jacket that works just as well at the dinner table as it would in the board room. 

Mathematics or Computer Science

You’re organized and diligent. Your Christmas outfit reflects your focus on simplicity: a timeless green dress with a pair of gold heels. Select a special plaid or sequin clutch to provide an additional festive dimension. 

Psychology or Political Science

Your sophisticated, worldly perspective imbues your fashion preferences. A tweed dress never fails to impress and is the perfect option for an evening affair. 

Hi! I am a member of the Brown '26 & hoping to double concentrate in International and Public Affairs along with Economics. I love playing tennis, celebrating holidays of any and all kinds, curating new Pinterest boards, and enjoying a nice weekend brunch! I am excited to be a part of the Her Campus community at Brown :)
