Happy Thursday!  I can’t believe this will be the second weekend of December!  I’m popping in again really quick to bring you one of the most popular posts each Christmas season: How to Wear Jeans to A Christmas Party.

My formula:  Detailed Denim + Festive Top + Fabulous Bag + Gorgeous Bag = Party Perfection in Comfort

Whether the detail is a great hem, side stripe, luxe velvet or coated leather look, this makes a difference.  I’ve gathered all the elements for your perfect Christmas party look in the boutique below.

These are a great pair of denim for a party because they look more like a pant but have a fun detail at the hem.  They are currently 25% off and available in every size!  These velvet jeans with trim are another great option.   I love the coated leather look for this formula, too!  This cropped, boot cut pair are perfection!

My burnout velvet top is sold out. But this one is very similar. I love the lurex shine and burnout velvet details. This velvet and lace top designed by my friend at Southcott Threads is perfect for the holidays!

Jimmy Choo Tulita Bag is one I picked up at resale and love carrying it.  The black LV clutch was a gift from my husband that I’ve loved for years.  It is such a classic.  There are so many great sources that I’ll be sharing soon!

As far as a great shoe, I’m a huge fan of these Stuart Weitzman Sandals.  I have them in 3 colors.  I another version of this shoe and it was so uncomfortable, I couldn’t even wear it all night!  This is one of My Favorite Five Investment Shoes but is often on sale!  The same can be said about the YSL Tributes above as well.

I hope this gives you good inspiration for how to wear jeans to a Christmas party.  My Holiday Style Shop is filled with so many beautiful styles for any holiday party so be sure to visit it as well.



PS- There is a great giveaway at the end of this post AND one on Instagram for a Louis Vuitton Neverfull, too!
