5 Foolproof Party Outfits That Are Secretly Really Comfortable
Heels are optional
Small talk? You’ve got just the right conversation starters. Hostess gift? You found a wine the hostess will love. But is your closet ready for all the festive gatherings between now and January? Don’t worry. We found five effortless party ensembles, so you can focus on what’s really important—Champagne cocktails.
PARTY PANTS + CASUAL TOP
Here, a little sparkle goes a long way. Ditch the sequined dress for a more modern look with sequined pants and a feminine blouse for parties this month. Then wear them later with an oversize sweater and sneakers.
A DASH OF VELVET
Winter is the perfect time to embrace this trend. Sure, you could wear a full-on festive velvet dress, but if you’re going for comfy, just add a touch here and there with a jewel-toned blazer or a long skirt. It’s a happy holiday classic that’s been updated for 2016.
Two trends in one? Our holiday wish came true. Slip on this easy piece and get straight to the dance floor. Yep, you can actually move freely in this number.
JACKET + SWEATER + METALLIC SKIRT
Business on top, party down below. Be it a blazer or a leather moto jacket, it’s the perfect combo for looking dressed up but not too dressed up.
TURTLENECK + SKINNIES + SHINY FLATS
Not a full-on sparkle kinda gal? No problem. Liven up your usual all-black uniform with leather pants and metallic oxfords.
