What To Wear To a Holiday Party When You Don’t Feel Like Wearing a Dress



If it weren’t for my Motown Christmas CD in heavy rotation, I wouldn’t believe the holiday season is already in full force. (Seriously, where did the year go?!) Between party invites from friends, office soirees, and family gatherings, my social calendar is full! Despite being pulled in a million different directions, I still want to look flawless regardless of the occasion (because… duh). But that doesn’t mean I always want to be in the standard holiday party dress. I mean I love them (and to prove it, I found 100+ fab ones!) but sometimes you just want to switch things up a bit.

Midi Skirt


The holidays are a great time to add some sparkle to your look, but you don’t want to look like a walking Christmas ornament. For a more toned down option, a metallic midi skirt is perfection. It compliments any size and can be worn to casual or formal events. A full lip and elegant jewels help finish the look.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking but shorts can totally be appropriate for holiday functions when styled properly. To keep your look sophisticated so you don’t look like a streetwalker, stick to a mostly neutral palette and play with richer fabrics such as satin or silk.
