Holiday Party Outfit Ideas for Guys & Girls

It’s the end of the year, which can only mean one thing — you’re busy planning your ‘fits for every holiday get-together, Christmas party, New Years celebration, and family dinner in the coming weeks. Now’s your chance to bust out the most merry and bright outfits that’ll live forever in your family photo albums and friends’ Insta grids. Read on for a few of our favorite combos!

Neutral Layered Tops & Jeans

Who says all Christmas outfits have to be bright red and green? Start with an easy neutral-toned base layer like a long-sleeve shirt or sweater, then add a cream-colored flannel and puffer vest. Stick with neutral hues by pairing the look with light-wash jeans, then add tan boots or sneakers to round out the outfit.

Cozy Cardigans & Skirts

‘Tis the season to be comfy, even when you’re showing up to a New Years Eve bash. Cozy up in soft cardigans and sweaters with the BEST details (helloooo front pockets and cable knit patterns!) then pair them with always-right mini skirts. From classic denim to cool corduroy, and low rise to high-waisted fits, we’ve got you covered with skirt options to mix and match for your next party.

And for those of us celebrating in colder climates, just add leggings, beanies, and combat boots to stay warm!

Super Soft Flannels & Jeans

Beat the brrr in the warmest flannels and jeans of the season! Flannels are the ultimate cozy-meets-classic essential this year (and let’s be honest, every year), and can be dressed up or down depending on the party guest list. Keep your flannel outfit laid-back by wearing it open with your go-to vintage graphic tee underneath, or elevate the look by buttoning your shirt allll the way up.

Add a crisp dark wash or black jean in your fave fit (we recommend slim or bootcut for a classic look) and you’re set with an easy holiday outfit for Christmas dinner with the fam. Want to dress to impress a little more? Switch out the jeans for khaki pants in neutral colors like tan or gray, and wear them with boots.

Warm Sweaters & Accessories

The best time to wear a Christmas sweater? All the time (in December at least). Choose comfort over everything else with softer-than-soft crew neck sweaters in your favorite holiday hues. Try holly jolly colors like bold emerald or deep crimson for an easy splash of holiday spirit, and top off the look with a beanie cap and scarf to keep warm on your way to and from the party. 

Nothing warms you up like velvety-soft chenille sweaters, especially when you wear them with your favorite women’s jeans or high-waisted jeggings for an easy festive look, or loosen up a little by pairing them with wide-leg baggy jeans or flare jeans with sneakers.

Comfy Sweatshirts & Hoodies

Say hi to your new favorite sweatshirts and hoodies that can easily go from opening presents Christmas morning to late night New Years Eve parties. Choose Super Soft Hoodies in fleece or thermal fabrics to stay warm all season long, or go for a lighter feel with hoodie t-shirts made for layering.

Wear them with fleece or khaki joggers for the easiest holiday party outfit ever, then spruce up the ‘fit with a flannel over your hoodie for plaid tidings to ring in the new year.
