The Holiday Party Trends I’m Loving Most Right Now

Finding the ideal outfit can be a struggle when the choices are endless and you’re trying to cater to a certain dress code. To take the guesswork out of putting together the perfect festive attire, I wanted to share my guide to the best party trends of the season. Express has been serving up some of the best ones full of texture, statement details and bold accents. You really don’t need to shop anywhere else for a head-to-toe, party-ready look. Below, I’m breaking down my favorite pieces that will make you feel extra fabulous. If there’s something that catches your eye, be sure to add to cart because the best styles always sell out the fastest (especially with pieces up to 50% off).

Metallic & Sequins

When it comes to party trends, sequins and metallic fabrics take the cake. Express masters the look with this turtleneck dress. It’s so sleek and makes for easy styling while the metallic detailing spices up the modest cut. You can wear it for an end-of-year work celebration or to dance the night away. Express also has tons of stunning sequin pieces that’ll steal the spotlight.

Silk and satin pieces are also trending hard for the holidays. If you’re looking for an outfit that toes the line between party-wear and elegance, this trend was made for you. I fell in love with this off-the-shoulder satin bodysuit because of how chic and luxe it looks – even with a pair of jeans. It’s just under $50 and really can’t be beat for all your upcoming parties. If you’re attending a wedding, then there’s also this slip dress that feels fancier.

I’m more of a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, but I always go all out with the loudest earrings once the holidays roll around. Express did such a great job this season with showstopping earrings. Whether you’re looking for pieces dripping with rhinestones or a bold take on studs, you can have it all for less than $20 a piece.

If you’re taking a subdued approach to party dressing, the leather trend is perhaps the most versatile one to try. This faux leather skirt feels so modern and edgy – I love that it doesn’t reveal too much either. It would be so cute with a satin top. Leggings are another great piece to throw on with a more festive top.
