Style Essentials for A Chic Holiday Party Outfit

Holidays are officially here and it seems there is always a dinner party or a last-minute holiday party being added to the calendar on a daily. As opposed to always having to shop for the perfect outfit for each party, today, I’m sharing my favorite style essentials for a chic holiday party outfit to have in your closet. All of these holiday essentials are versatile and can be styled in many ways depending on your holiday event.

Style Essentials for a Chic Holiday Party Outfit

Black and gold party outfit

When it comes to holiday parties, and all-black outfit is one of the easiest styling options. It takes little thought while also being more slimming than most colors. Here are 5 essentials needed to create your holiday outfits.

A Black Slip Dress

A black slip dress is one of my favorite pieces from my fall capsule wardrobe. A classic staple that can be worn by itself, styled with a leather jacket and sneakers. Another way to wear is with a wool coat and heels for an elegant dinner party. However, one of the best ways to wear a slip dress wearing it as a base layer for your holiday outfit.

Versatile Black Sweater

While I love a great holiday statement blouse, a versatile black cardigan is one that can be styled more ways. A cardigan is perfect to layer over the slip dress as I did here. Another way to wear is to pair it with black trousers for a work holiday party or with a favorite pair of jeans. Add an embellished heel or go casual with a golden goose sneaker to complete your holiday look depending on your event.

Embellished Jewel Heel and Black Handbag

Styling an embellished heel or rhinestone pump with a basic outfit will change up your look entirely. For example, a classic white or black button-up, favorite denim, and this pump will automatically elevate your look and make it more dressy.

Statement Jewelry

Statement Jewelry and red lipstick

A statement earring or a chain-link necklace is the perfect layering piece to add to your holiday outfit. Just remember to stick to one piece and not overdo the jewelry category. Only the earrings, necklace, or bracelets need to be the statement. All other jewelry additions should be dainty and simple.

Red Lipstick

Red lips and black fashion

Wearing a red lip with a winter white or an all-black outfit is so chic during the holiday season. It’s the perfect pop of color that will add a holiday touch to your entire look.
