The holidays are the perfect time to break out your most eye-catching outfits and be the most stylish girl in the room at any party. The rule of thumb for winter festivities tends to be the more sparkle, the better, but before you turn to that sequined and glittery dress on the rack, consider switching it up for something unexpected. You can still be glam without all the glitz, so check out these subtle but striking holiday party looks for your holiday go-to.
Girl’s Night Out
A night out on the town with your girls is a great way to bring in the new year. Something that’s edgy, cool, and a little risque is the perfect way to slay just as much as your friends decked out in sequins. Think exposed shoulders, velvet, midnight blue, bustiers and corsets, slip dresses, and thigh-high boots to give your outfit a luxe upgrade.
New Year’s Eve
Counting down to midnight with your friends in silly “2017” party store accessories is guaranteed fun—so your outfit should be, too. For a house party, make sure your outfit is easy and comfortable to dance in but also kind of crazy and flamboyant to keep up with all the glittery dresses around you. Statement chokers, cherry bomb red, metallic, extra long sleeves, or funky jeans will do the trick.
Maybe the place where you’re interning is throwing a holiday party or your mom is forcing you to socialize at her friends’ get-together. You might not want to go, but you might as well make a statement. Stand out amongst all the shimmery skirts and fit and flare dresses in a super feminine look that’s modest but definitely not boring. Pleated skirts, blush, turtlenecks, satin, ruffles, or extravagant earrings will definitely help set you apart from the rest.
