Five Christmas Party Looks You’ll Love + Holiday Style Shop

by | Nov 25, 2019 | Christmas Inspiration, Christmas Style, Holiday Inspiration, Style | 3 comments

Today, I’m sharing something a bit different with Four Christmas Party Looks You’ll Love + the new Holiday Style Shop.  I shared multiple looks with you last week with What to Wear for Thanksgiving and y’all loved it!  This post also has several options for both dressier and more casual holiday parties.

With Thanksgiving being late this year, Christmas parties will be here in just a few days!  I love this season and having a few things I’m excited to wear, makes getting out the door so much easier!  So while we are prepping for Thanksgiving, we need to think a head a bit, too!

Gold Brocade Lilly Pulitzer Dress / Pearl Hoops / Similar Gold Sandals

I adore this shimmery gold shift dress from Lilly Pulitzer that I featured in the AWL x Jackopierce Playlist post.  There is nothing like a great fitting shift from Lilly.  The gold brocade and the thick gold braid trim are Holiday perfection!  So many of you ask for styles with sleeves and this is a great option.

Velvet Top with Ruffle Sleeves / Velvet Joggers / Black Leather Bow Bag / Black Sandals / Lagos Square Caviar Hoops / Lagos Sugarloaf Bangle Set

I’m in LOVE with this velvet top and velvet jogger pants from my friends at Southcott Threads.  Talk about the perfect casual look for any holiday event!  The bamboo velvet is soft, doesn’t crush and feels like a dream!  You’ve seen Southcott in my packing lists from Italy and South Africa and the beautiful velvet and lace top from last year’s How to Wear Jeans to a Holiday Party.  Don’t worry a new one is coming soon!

Gold Balloon Sleeve Sweater Dress / Pearl Hoops / Nude Sandals

This gold sweater dress from Lilly Pulitzer is a beautiful and cozy option for parties.  The balloon sleeves and slim but loose fit of the body make it a flattering and comfortable party dress.  This photo also gives you a sneak peek of my Christmas tablescape coming next week on a home tour with some of my friends!

Velvet Fit and Flare Dress / Black Bow Bag / Black Jeweled Earrings / Black Sandals

This black velvet dress from Draper James is the quintessential holiday dress.  The fit is amazing and the flat bows on the shoulder are perfect.  Reese and her team have perfected the fit and flare.

Navy Swiss Dot Dress / Similar Gold Clutch / Similar Gold Sandals

Navy is always a great alternative to black any season.  This navy Swiss dot dress is festive but light weight so a great year-round party option.

Bonus Look!

Eliza J One Shoulder Velvet Dress / Black Sandals / Similar Sliver Clutch

I just realized this amazing dress is back in stock this year!  This was the most popular dress of 2018 with my readers.  Don’t miss this!

I’ve gathered pretty holiday styles from our favorite retailers to save us all a bit of time.  I’ve left style notes and comments on the items below.

I’m working diligently on a post for Wednesday you won’t want to miss!  So many retailers are starting Black Friday early so I’ll have all the details on the best sales for you Wednesday am!

And not to forget that Thanksgiving is in just a few days, there is inspiration for both holidays on the HOLIDAY tab above that includes recipes and tablescape ideas.  I hope you’ve subscribed to my newsletters and received the Thanksgiving Newsletter filled with my favorite recipes and more.  There are 4 Christmas Newsletters on their way, each with a different theme, so subscribe now!  You’ll also get copies of my 4 eBooks including Holiday Entertaining!
