Deck Yourself Out This Christmas

Everyone loves a good Christmas party. Whether you plan on attending a work party or family party, these staple items are sure to have you covered. Mix and match these items to create a personalized Christmas outfit that is sure to make you feel festive and fun!


Festive tights

Tights are my holiday go-to. I find that they make everything look extra classy and chic. They also add a little bit of extra warmth, as opposed to going outside in the dead of winter with bare legs. Pair your tights with holiday dresses and cute little booties. I love wearing tights with designs in them to holiday events, like a Christmas party. I think it just adds a little something extra to spice things up!

Darling dress

Now, the key essential for any Christmas party is the dress. You can wear a casual dress, or a more fancy dress. It’s all up to personal preference. When shopping for a Christmas party dress, I try and find a solid color so that it is easy for me to find other accessories that won’t clash with any patterns on the dress. Depending on what kind of Christmas party you are attending, you will have to decide what type of dress will be appropriate.  

Statement piece

My favorite accessory of all time would hands down have to be statement necklaces. Any chance I have to wear one, you bet I will. Holiday parties are a great excuse to pull out those statement pieces you have been dying to wear. With a simple dress, you’ll have endless possibilities when it comes to jewelry. Go wild!

Sophisticated winter jacket

After you spend all day slaving over creating the perfect outfit to wear to your Christmas party, the last thing you want to do is throw over your last years lime green snowboarding jacket to wear to the party. When you walk into the party, you want all eyes to be on you. The first thing you want people to see is your super chic outfit, not your extreme winter jacket. Not to fear, pea coats are here! Pea coats are perfect to wear with fancy outfits during the holidays. They are always classy, and will keep you nice and warm! Wearing a sophisticated jacket will make you look completely put together, from head to toe!
