Delicious food! Signature drinks! Dessert Bar! Getting dressed to the nine and breaking loose on the dance floor! Who doesn’t love Christmas parties! One of the things I look forward to the most this time of year are the Christmas parties. I love the excitement that comes with getting dressed-up, just being in the present with family and friends, and enjoying the holidays. If there is one question, I get the most this time of year, it’s “what to wear to holiday parties?” I answer this infamous question in today’s post, and highlight what to wear to 6 different holiday parties! This post covers everything from office parties, to a holiday pajama party, so take notes, and get ready to shop (most looks are on sale)!

1.Office holiday party or happy hourIs it 5pm yet? It’s not always possible to celebrate the holiday’s with your co-workers if your office doesn’t do holiday parties. A fun option is to get together for happy hour. Not only is this an easy way to celebrate right after work over a meal and drinks, but it’s an opportunity to give you an excuse to get dress for a night of fun with your work family. To celebrate the holidays with your work family, opt for fun, and flirty looks. If you are hitting the bar, pick a velvet blazer with jeans. The company is putting on an office party, then a pair of tuxedo pants and a blouse will definitely do the trick.

2.Holiday Girls night outDuring the holidays my girls and I make it a point to get together, ladies only and get dress to impress for a night on the town. It’s a time for us to celebrate the year, set goals for the New Year and most of all, enjoy each other’s company. It’s one of the nights during the holidays that I look forward to because one thing is for certain, the night will be filled with fun, laughter, dancing and as always incredible memories being made. For a girls night out of dinner and dancing, I suggest making a statement! bold looks that are stylish and on trend are a must! Green is major this season, so why not try green velvet or a little sparkle with sequins! Who else loves girls night out during the holidays, I sure do!
