holiday party outfit inspo
Happy Monday, friends! I know it’s always sad when the weekend ends, which is why I was so excited to share this fun post with you today! Today I’m sharing all of my holiday party outfit inspo, including this black ensemble from River Island, and how to find the perfect look for all your events this holiday season! November is already here (um how did that happen?!) and I know there will be tons of Christmas parties, winter weddings, New Year’s Eve parties, etc., right around the corner! I know it can be kind of overwhelming finding outfits for all of those occasions, so I’m hoping today’s post alleviates some of the typical stress that can come with this time of year! I’m going to share two looks as well as one of my favorite places to go for all of my holiday outfit shopping!
I think it can be difficult to find holiday party outfits that are 1. reasonably priced (because hello, the holidays are expensive enough as it is!) and 2. versatile (you don’t want to look overly festive and only be able to wear it once). You still want to feel comfortable and stay true to your personal style, but it’s fun to kind of kick things up a notch for the holidays! Maybe add a little sparkle, incorporate fun fabrics or silhouette, etc. I always try to look for pieces that can either be worn several ways, like this high-waisted skirt, and that work for a variety of events – parties, weddings, date night, etc.
Outfit details: Oversized Bow Top | High-Low Skirt | Leopard Pumps | Black Clutch
I posted this outfit on Instagram recently and I was SO thrilled to see y’all love it as much as I do! This is hands down one of my favorite holiday party outfits I’ve ever worn. The oversized bow top is absolutely adorable and has the most flattering fit. The bow not only adds some festive flare, but it also make the top even more feminine. And thankfully, it fits well so you don’t have to worry about pulling it up all night (#petpeeve). It paired so perfectly with this skirt, but I also think it would be so cute with wide-leg pants, too. River Island has endless holiday outfit possibilities y’all and they’re so cute!
Another great way to get your outfit ‘holiday ready’ is by finding the perfect accessories! I’m a firm believer that the right accessories make the biggest difference in completing your look. For these holiday outfits, I found the cutest heels! These leopard rhinestone mules add the perfect amount of sparkle and festive-ness (that’s totally a word, right?) to this outfit. The heel on them isn’t too high, so you can wear them for all your late night parties without being totally miserable. Also love how this clutch bag has pretty pearl detailing too. Such a fun touch!
Outfit details: Metallic OTS Top | High-Low Skirt | Black Suede Booties | Black Clutch
For my second holiday outfit look, I wore this gorgeous metallic top! I don’t even know where to begin, because this top has so many pretty details! The puff sleeves are so fun, the tie in the back is adorable, and the gold/black pattern is beautiful! I also think metallics are a great way to make an outfit look a little more ‘holiday festive’. For this look, I wore the same clutch, but this time I chose these black suede booties. I think they look so chic and sophisticated, and the bootie look is perfect for the holidays.
