SHINE ALL NIGHT WITH THESE CHRISTMAS PARTY OUTFIT IDEAS
Where does the time go?! The holidays are quickly approaching and it’s time to fill our closets with festive outfits!
Now, we don’t know about you, but when it comes to festive outfits, we want sparkle! It’s one of the few times of the year when you can totally rock sequins, glitter, and jewels from head to toe.
So today, we’re showing you five sparkly Christmas party outfit ideas. We hope you love them just as much as we do!
🎄 Five Christmas party outfit ideas decked out in sparkle ✨
Ready to shimmer and shine? Here are five dazzling Christmas party outfit ideas you have to see!
1. Red velvet and sequin asymmetrical dress
A red dress for a Christmas party? What a surprise! Just kidding. Of course, wearing red is a classic look for any Christmas event. But here’s why we love this dress specifically.
First, it’s head-to-toe velvet and sequins. Both of these materials are holiday favorites, but paired together? Chef’s kiss! It creates a super unique texture. (And it’ll also keep you warm.)
As you know, asymmetrical necklines are all the rage right now. We love that this dress has one long puff sleeve to accentuate the asymmetry of this dress. (And again, the sleeve adds warmth!)
Looking for work Christmas party outfit ideas specifically? This one is a great option because the length is long and the neckline is modest.
2. Red velvet and sequin halter dress
Love the idea of a red dress for a Christmas party, but want a brighter hue? We got you! This number is bright, bold, and fiery. It’s perfect for a Christmas party with friends or family.
The stunning detail we have to call out is the halter neckline and lace-up back. How gorgeous is it?! It adds just the right amount of spice.
If you want to show off your hourglass shape, we recommend trying on a mermaid dress. It’ll hug all your curves! Pro tip: ruching will also do the job.
We love that this look also combines velvet and sequins. Because the dress has thin straps and a lace-up back, a thicker material will help you keep warm. If your party is partially outdoors, we recommend a faux fur coat to complete the look.
3. Green glitter tulle mermaid dress
Is green your go-to Christmas color? Then we have two Christmas party outfit ideas for you.
This first look is so elegant and classy! Whether you’re off to a formal dinner with family, friends, or colleagues, you’ll be sure to turn heads.
The sparkle in this dress comes from the glitter tulle. Because it’s stitched on top of black fabric, its gorgeous pattern really pops. The tulle layer also adds some volume to the skirt. When it comes to mermaid dresses, a bigger “tail” means a more exaggerated hourglass shape. And who doesn’t want that?
We also love the romantic feel of the bodice. The off-the-shoulder sleeves and sweetheart neckline create a feminine, timeless look. Show off your collarbone and shoulders with a sleek updo!
4. Green metallic lamé A-line dress
Here’s another green Christmas party outfit idea that’ll ensure you make an entrance. Made of metallic lamé, you will subtly shimmer against the evening lights. It’s perfect for those who want to rock sparkle, but nothing too bold.
There are other ways to add sparkle to your look too, like jewel embellishments. Look for dresses that decorate the waistline. This will draw attention to the smallest part of your body and create a flattering effect (We love a 2-in-1!)
Lastly, if mermaid-style dresses aren’t your thing, we recommend trying on A-line dresses. This silhouette looks lovely on any shape and figure, which is why it’s so popular. Plus, with a flowing skirt, you’ll look like you're gliding across the dance floor!
5. Champagne velvet and sequin dress
Besides red and green, champagne is one of our top recommended colors to wear for Christmas. It’s a dazzling metallic color reserved for special occasions—and Christmas is definitely a special time of year!
As mentioned, stitching sequins on top of velvet fabric will make for a warm, yet fashionable, Christmas party outfit. You can also opt to wear sheer stockings to stay warm and add coverage.
This is one of our most popular work Christmas party outfit ideas because of its long sleeves, creating a more modest look for the office. We love the puff shoulders and feather details along the cuffs—practical but also super trendy!
Wondering how to style this showstopping dress? We recommend embracing the metallic hues (everyone else is this season!) and rock gold heels and accessories. Don’t forget to dust your cheekbones with some highlighter.
