Holiday party season has officially arrived! And between winter formals, club parties, your family’s holiday dinner, and the ultimate New Year’s Eve bash, there’s a lot of outfit planning to be done. If you’re starting to feel that holiday stress, don’t fret—we’re here with seven looks to test-drive for each of your holiday festivities.

the fancy winter formal

Now this is how you wear red. With a piece as simple as a sleek midi dress, details make the look, so pull it all together with an elegant pair of heels, a gorgeous velvet clutch, and a sleek bun.

In need of a last-minute outfit? Dress up a pair of jeans with a satin blouse and a bold necklace. You’ll feel sleek and sophisticated, and no one will know you threw it on five minutes before you left the house.

Don’t be afraid to show off your creative flair this holiday season. Embrace a cheerful color with textured pieces like this velvet hat, jumpsuit, and boots for a monochrome look. This combination of comfort and style is perfect for a low-key dinner with friends.

the grown-up cocktail hour

A little black dress can result in an uncomfortably cold night, so make your outfit weather-appropriate by layering a sweater underneath. Don’t forget to add a pop of glamour with a metallic purse and eye-catching earrings to complete the look.

the disco dance party

Take a stroll down memory lane with a vintage-inspired outfit this New Year’s Eve. This faux-fur jacket with striped pants gives off a ’70s vibe that’s both comfortable and stylish for a night filled with dancing. Get ready to bust a move.

In the mood to wear sweats? Take it one step above with a gorgeous golden skirt. Add a turtleneck and a slouchy sweater for easy lounging, and if you must look semi-fancy, throw on a pair of chunky-heeled white boots for an edgy contrast to the ensemble.

the party your fashion friend invited you to

Don’t want to buy a whole new wardrobe? Just add a statement coat and platform boots over a simple all-black outfit. You can reuse this equation for pretty much any occasion this holiday season.
