Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we're now in the full swing of the Christmas season. The Justin Bieber Christmas Album is on repeat, and I've been digging through my closet to put together some Christmas event-going outfits. 2017 Winter fashion is simple, textured, and sleek, so I have 3 formulas for holiday fashion this year:
S E M I - F O R M A L
For more formal events, go for easy pieces that speak for themselves. The holidays are the perfect time to wear anything with sequins, and long sleeves with a short hem flatters all body types. Tights or stockings will keep you warm and classy in a piece like this sequin cocktail dress. When you wear something flashy and eye-catching, keep your jewelry to a minimum, like this Sole Society fabric wrapped cuff. Above-the-knee hems usually call for a heel closer to the floor, so these pale-pink d'Orsay flats from Gap.
D R E S S Y - C A S U A L
When you're headed to an office event or a church christmas party that's more on the dressy side but not quite to cocktail dresses and blazers, keep it simple and sweet. Take a piece you'd wear everyday like this lace-up back sweater and dress it up with a skirt. This black mini-skirt is a great versatile piece that you can wear with basically everything. If short isn't your style, then wear something in the same family like a long black maxi dress and layer a fun, textured sweater like this over it. Add some fun, flirty earrings and a bangle, and you'll be ready to eat Christmas tree shaped h'orderve platters all night long.
C A S U A L
If you're off to a casual Christmas get-together with friends, keep it Khloe Kardashian. Wear your favorite pair of high-waisted jeans with an easy black bodysuit. No muss, no fuss. Go for a neutral color palette and add metallics like these gold bangles and earrings. Top your outfit off with your best black heels and you'll be the best dressed in the white-elephant gift exchange.
