Christmas Party Dress Code: Elevating Festive Fashion Choices

The holiday season is the perfect time to get together with old friends, new friends, family, and anyone and everyone you love. Christmas parties are, of course, the quintessential holiday get-together, and they can vary from formal events to casual social time between co-workers. In this guide, we’re focusing on the more glamorous side of Christmas parties and sharing our tips for styling your holiday look from head to toe.

Before we jump into our favorite pieces, let’s talk about the holiday fashion trends we’re seeing for 2023. While classic colors like red, green, white, silver, and gold will still be popular this year, there are a couple of current trends that will be carrying over into winter and the holidays.

2023 isn’t the year for subdued looks–we’re loving lavish embellishments like sequins, rhinestones, and metallic flecked fabrics. Winter glam is going to be in full swing, and we want to see you in all your glitzy finery with beads, glitter, fringe, and accessories galore.

There’s something about a jumpsuit that just instantly puts us in a party mood, especially when said jumpsuit comes in a fancy fabric like lace, lurex, sequins, or satin. Jumpsuits are just as versatile as dresses and can be everything from casual to glamorous.  Go for a playful one-and-done option and you’ve basically got an instant Christmas party outfit–just add heels!

Choose luminous fabrics that reflect light and give your look dimension like velvet, and anything that glitters. Soft and warm fabrics are also a lovely choice, and can be glammed up with accessories, or worn with bolder statement pieces.

Even if you’ve chosen a glitzy, glittery, glamorous outfit, we love accessorizing for the holidays by adding jewelry to all our outfits. Gold and silver are equally appropriate for the season, and we love added gems like rhinestones. Knotted designs, bows, links, and chains are some classics for the holidays, and can make you feel like a present!
