3 Holiday Party Look Starter Packs

By Elly Ayres

No matter how you’re ringing in the holidays, you want your look to stand out. Whether it’s a low-key dinner with family or an upscale office party (and don’t forget drinks with friends in between!), there are so many opportunities to let your style channel the energy of the season.

In partnership with Macy’s, we’re curating three holiday party looks to get you started for the season. From laid-back luxe to all dressed up, we’ve got you covered.

Laid-back Luxe

Just because you’re headed to your best friend’s house for a holiday meal doesn’t mean your look can’t be luxe. Keep things comfy in jeans, but level it up with a flurry of sparkly embellishments down the legs and on your sweater. A faux fur-lined silver jacket adds a cool metallic touch, and white patent leather boots ensure the laid-back look is still entirely on trend.

Glam Rock

If you’re headed off to festive drinks with friends, you can hit a holiday high note by channeling all your favorite songstresses of yesteryear. A sequin top will take center stage alongside faux leather pants, while a plush velvet jacket polishes up the ensemble alongside glittery lace-up boots.

All Dressed Up

Whether you’re off to a romantic holiday dinner or fancy office party, you can take things up a notch with a coordinating striped set. Add a little texture with a faux fur scarf in a warm red gradient hue, and let a bejeweled clutch further dress up the look. Black shimmering heels add the perfect finishing touch.
