What To Wear To Holiday Parties

With the holiday season in full swing, you need to dress appropriately for every party on your schedule.

Family Dinner

A holiday dinner at your family’s house doesn’t necessarily require dressy attire, but you should appear put-together and comfortable. Consider a cozy shawl cardigan or another holiday staple — a fair isle sweater — over an oxford shirt and paired with chinos or jeans.

Party With Friends

For a look that conveys the laid-back spirit of the evening, opt for a plaid shirt and chinos. To up your style game a notch, throw on a blazer (you can ditch it when the party gets hot).

Office Holiday Party

Your work party outfit will depend on the formality of your office. For a casual after work party you can dress just a little bit better than your average Wednesday and take inspiration from the smart casual looks above. However, if your office party is on the fancier side and the invitation reads cocktail attire, opt for a killer suit and a tie (which you can lose if your boss isn’t wearing one).
