I’ve been having so much fun putting together various holiday looks over the last few weeks. They’re all special and have something unique about them, but I have to say, this one might be a favorite. If you’ve been wanting to nix the classic holiday party dress and do something a little bit different, I have some ideas for you today!
Velvet isn’t an uncommon texture this time of year, but it does add a little something extra in my opinion. First, it’s warm, second, there’s just something about it that feels like the holiday season. What can make it really unique though, is wearing it in an unexpected way. Like on your pants for example. And speaking of pants…
Skip the dress
If you’re heading to a more formal holiday party, most women will probably be wearing dresses. I love a good holiday party dress just as much as anyone, but if you want to step outside the box, try a pantsuit like this one from Ann Taylor. The velvet makes it seem much more luxurious and gives it that formal vibe. I also love this velvet jumpsuit – so chic and unexpected!
If you’re worried a pantsuit might be too casual, elevate the look with your accessories. These statement earrings and jeweled sneakers do just that and I’m obsessed with them. I mean, just look at the sneakers! And the best part is that they’re so comfortable too. Forget wearing a heel when you can just slip into these and look and feel just as great.
What are you wearing to the holiday parties on your calendar? Will go classic or a little bit unexpected?
