It’s officially the holiday season, which means it’s time we share some of our FAVORITE outfit ideas for office parties, get-togethers with friends and heartwarming family occasions! As the world is still recovering from an era of sweatpants and relaxed at-home style, the key to party-ready pieces this year is flexibility.
We’ve found that the easiest way to navigate this unique moment in fashion is to keep a relaxed element in your ensemble while utilizing texture, accessories and shoes to elevate your look!
Some people love festive textures like velvet, feathers, sequins and sparkle – others love the classic coziness of sweaters and chic winter looks in leather. We’ve incorporated it all for you in five versatile, easy-to-master holiday outfit ideas. Check out our favorites below and let us know which looks YOU love best!

The Holiday Blazer

A velvet, leather or sequin blazer looks great paired with trousers for an upscale office event, or paired with jeans for a festive party! Finish the look with heels or ankle boots.
