A Comprehensive Guide to Holiday Party Outfits

You have some holiday parties lined up, but you’re not really feeling your current party wardrobe. Maybe you’ve literally or figuratively grown out of your current fancy dresses and festive jackets? Consider treating yourself to a new holiday look this season that excites you and suppresses the jitters you may feel about seeing acquaintances, extended family, or co-workers with whom you rarely socialize. (Party anxiety is totally normal, don’t worry.)

Of course, there are so many places to shop for holiday looks, and all the sales going on right now might just be adding to your confusion about where to look and what to buy. Allow me to help! Below are sample outfits to get your creative juices flowing and store suggestions based on style type to help jump-start your search in the right direction.

Are you not in the market for a whole new holiday look this year but still feeling bored with your old looks? Try investing in a fun jewelry piece, a new evening bag, or a cute pair of shoes. Accessories are what turn an outfit from blah to hoorah!
