Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

Holiday Party Outfits

I am finally putting away my leggings and putting on holiday attire! Juuuust kidding, I’m actually wearing leggings as I type this.  BUT I did put on all these snazzy outfits to help bring you some super cute holiday outfit options; things you could wear to winter weddings, holiday parties, etc.!

All of the items that I’m sharing in this post are from Express.  Anytime I need something a little dressier, Express is always the first place I look.  And, true story, each year in the fall when I go to New York Fashion Week, I literally purchase 95% of the outfits for my trip from Express.  They have a big selection of items and everything is always such great quality! Oh, and I almost forgot,  today they have 50% OFF EVERYTHING  + FREE SHIPPING!  Wahoooooo!!

Note:  Even though I’m sharing holiday outfit options in today’s post, I actually do get a lot of comfy attire from Express also.  I’ll try to do another post soon sharing some everyday items from Express that I have!

Alrighty, let’s dive in…

You know I love something when I have it in THREE colors!  Haha!  It’s literally my go-to outfit option for literally anything that requires me to be dressed up!   Weddings, holiday parties, graduation parties, engagement parties, cocktail parties….whatever it is!  It’s SO comfortable, it’s very flattering, and I love that it has pockets!  I get compliments on this every single time I wear it!  I think the black one is such a great closet staple that you could wear year after year!  Also, SO MANY of you have this so, believe me when I say, it looks amazing on everyone!  Furthermore, it has FANTASTIC reviews! Its’s on sale for just $44; snag on HERE.  There is a velvet option of this jumpsuit HERE.

Styling Tip: Now that it’s winter, you could pair this with a shawl or a blazer for extra warmth!  Or, for an edgier look, you could add a moto jacket!

Sizing: If you’re between sizes, I would size down unless you’re very busty.  For reference, I’m wearing a 00.

*Here are some blazers, scarves (you could wear as a shawl), and moto jackets that you could pair with this jumpsuit:

I had to shave my legs and slap on some self-tanner for this one, but, you guys, I felt so sassy in this velvet ruffle skirt!  It’s so pretty in person!  The fabric is super soft and the ruffles are so pretty!  You could also pair this with a red sweater or blouse for the holidays or even do all black!  This skirt is on sale for just $29 and available HERE.  For reference, I sized down to an xxs when I ordered this, but I think the xs would have fine.  Stick with your normal size in this!

Did someone say velvet sequin leggings?  YES!  I mean, come on! These things are ammmmazing and, the best part, they are SO COMFY…and, um, on SALE for just $39!  They have a lot stretch so they aren’t restricting; you could definitely dance the night away wearing these on NYE!  I did not expect to love these as much as I do.  They’re great!  I dressed them down with that same white top, but you could do the same with a chambray button down.  Or you could dress them up  more with a solid colored cami (these are my fave), sweater or blouse.  If between sizes, go down.  For reference, I’m wearing an xxs.  These are available HERE.

P.S. This white tee is a MUST!! I’m not even kidding, it’s PERFECT and on sale for just $14!! I’m wearing an xs.  Grab one HERE!  While you’re at it, you may want to grab the black one too!

*I ordered this pencil skirt yesterday!  It’s another item with great reviews that I think could be worn year after year.  It would also be great for the workplace.  Grab one HERE.



I definitely suggest taking advantage of their 50% OFF SALE!  Here are some categories worth browsing:

Shop sweaters and cardigans HERE.

Shop jeans HERE.

Shop dresses HERE.

Shop shoes HERE (How cute are these faux fur boots!)

Thank you to Express for sponsoring this post!  As always, all opinions are my own and all items were selected by me!

    I have the velvet jumpsuit in black and am in love with it! Haven’t had a chance to wear it yet but maybe for Christmas Eve. Definitely for my Vegas trip after New Years! And I just ordered the sequin leggings and the white top you paired together…perfect for Vegas! 🙂 Express is my go-to for work and fun pieces. Seriously, LOVE your style!
