Style-Delights: Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

All dressed stressed up and somewhere to go? Put down that Ben&Jerry right now! Our trusted fashion idols come to the rescue for the the eternal female dilemma - What To Wear?? Looking for an outfit for Christmas dinner? Which dress  to splurge on for the New Year's party? How to make the 'someone' do a double take on you at the office holiday party? Well, these celebrities tell us how -
When black and white seem boring (yes, it can happen to some!), go with an unusually bright hue - winter weather color police be damned! Here are some of my favorite bold dresses for the colorful holidays! Totally loving the extravagant look and feel of Marena Y Sol's luxurious kaftans and tunics. Deal Alert:Enter 'HOLIDAY' at checkout for complimentary expedited shipping!
1- Adrianna Papell Velvet Party Dress, Bordeaux
2. DryLake/Trudy Dress via, Similar at ModCloth
3. Riviera Maya tunic by Marena Y Sol
4. Red/Black skater dress by Dorothy Perkins
5. Canaries Caftan by Marena Y Sol

Can never go wrong with the classic! Sheath, paper-bag waist fitted skirtsuit- there is a reason little black dress survived the test of time. Here are some pieces you will cherish for years to come. I specially love Tibi holiday collection in black and white this year.
1. Violette Sleeveless Dress by Tibi 
2. Faux Leather Trim Bodycon Dress
3. Little Mistress Tutu Beaded Dress
4. Mika Sweater Dress Marc by Marc Jacobs
5. Super Trash Dress Wings via
6. Black Lace Dress by River Island
7. Orla Kiely Party Ottoman Leather Bow Belt Dress

 Be a shining star, you life of the party you! Wear a dress or mix the shiny pieces to create your own outfit. Some of the sparkly choices are below.

1. Mocha Beaded Bronze Party Dress
2. J.Crew Sequined wool sweater
3. Ted Baker NILMA - Embellished detail t-shirt
4. By Malene Birger Callinga embellished Tweed dress
5. Lipsy Sequin Disc Dress
6. French Connection 'Ozlem' Sequins Flared Dress
7. MOTEL DELUXE Harper Metallic Dress in Turquoise and Bronze
8. ONLY Silver Metallic Saturn Skinny Jeans via New Look 

Have a ladi back cool party to go to and all the outfits seem 'overdressed'? A little print and pattern and youthful stripes will take care of that. Easy dressing with subdued elegance - now that's the secret for nailing a 'casual party' theme! The pieces below create super chic outfits that will make Zooey Deschanel your best buddy at the holiday party!
1. Heart Over Heels Dress by Modcloth
2. Unstoppable in Stripes Dress by Modcloth
3. Kate Spade Carolyn Dress
4. Polka Dot Sequin Jacket By Louise Gray  via Topshop
5. See by Chloé Wool-blend turtleneck sweater
6. Topshop 'Dandy' Floral Print Skinny Pants 
7. J. Crew Heartbreaker Sweater
8. Fair+True Fair Trade African Print Peplum Skirt

Nothing says ladylike better than a pretty floral sheath or delicate pastels, silvers or creams. Make sure to stay away from shades that wash you out though. Bold touches of a hair accessory or a statement clutch go really well with these delicate dresses.
1. Rebecca Minkoff Sunny floral-print silk crepe de chine dress
2. Danderhall Dress via Jack Wills
3. Halston Heritage Belted Draped Crepe Dress
4. Alice + Olivia Corwin Blouson Dress
5. Camo Print Lantern Dress via Topshop

If a dress is not your thing, go with a stylish pair of pants. A jumpsuit will do, thank you very much! Or put a classy tux style jacket over your favorite pair of party pants! (I know you do have one in your closet - your 'party pants' that is!)
1. Phase Eight Twinkle Jumpsuit
2. Color Block Jumpsuit Topshop
3. MICHAEL Michael Kors Stretch-crepe jersey jumpsuit
4. Floral Jacquard Tux Jacket via Nordstrom
5. Phase Eight Paula tuxedo jacket via House Of Fraser
Have a happy and joyous Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Years Eve - you know the ENTIRE  Holiday Season! (My favorite time of the year!)
