Warm Weather = Light Accessories

For the beach babes among us, opt for lighter accessories to brighten up your party outfit. Start with a babydoll dress in a light color or print, then add white or cream mules and a statement-making hat. Grab a bag to store all your party essentials (wallet, phone, White Elephant gift, go!), then throw on a lightweight blazer or shacket in case the wind picks up on those cooler beach nights. 

Mild Temps = Edge it Up

For cool(ish), mild temperatures, go for a lightly layered look that goes with anything and everything. Wear a printed plaid dress paired with white boots and a white or light-wash denim jacket to add a little edge to your look and keep you warm when the temps drop.

Getting Chilly = Style with Leather

For cooler temps, start with a smocked babydoll dress in a festive print or color, then add a leather or faux leather jacket and strappy heels to keep the party outfit dressy and laid-back at the same time. Add a coordinating bag and sunglasses and you’re ready for whatever the weather does.

Cold Weather = Layering is Key

Layering is essential for all your “oh it’s ACTUALLY cold outside” celebrations! Pick a long sleeve mini dress to keep your look feminine and soft, then add black tights, sleek black accessories, and a festive blazer to get into the holiday party spirit.
