The holiday festivities have officially begun and that can only mean one thing – holiday party outfits. I don’t know about you girls but my social calendar is brimming to the top with dinners, family gatherings and so much more. Dressing for the occasion always gets me excited for the season. But I know how stressful it can be when you have tons of other things on your to-do list. So, I wanted to share a comprehensive guide to showstopping looks whether you’re heading to a last minute outing or planning ahead for New Year’s Eve.

It’s impossible to get through the holiday season without a sequin look! Although intimidating, there are endless ways to style them. I love the idea of sequin pants with a blazer or a basic sweater with a sequin skirt. You just need a pair of heels and you’re all set.

Not all holiday events call for glitz and glam. A fun sweater adorned with rhinestones or in a festive color is sufficient to level up your favorite jeans. I rounded up some options that will take you through the end of the year.
Nothing rings in the party season like a jaw-dropping cocktail dress! Everything from metallic fabrics to velvet textures is sure to usher you into the spotlight. Take your pick and wear it to any formal party, then take it out for another spin on New Year’s Eve.
As far as casual dress options go, nothing beats a cozy sweater dress. They’re universally flattering and pretty much fail proof when you need to look pulled together in a pinch. Not only that but they just as good with heels as they do with boots, so you can piece together an outfit with no effort.

Dressing to the nines when it’s cold outside is hard enough as it is – but trying to pick the right coat to tie everything together serves up another set of issues. I recommend playing it safe with a tailored coat, feminine blazer or a faux fur outer layer.
2022 is all about glamorous heels – think rhinestone embellishments, bow details, and metallic finishes. I’m here for the Cinderella vibes! Below, you’ll find several options at reasonable price points.
Shoes aren’t the only thing getting the glam treatment. Crystal mesh bags are all the rage lately and I love how seamlessly they tie into the holiday season. The good news is you don’t have to blow your budget to get the designer look.
There’s only one last thing you need when heading out to the holiday circuit, and that’s a pair of statement earrings. My jewelry style tends to be minimal but that changes entirely when December rolls around. I love a crystal fringe moment that makes an outfit pop!
