Happy December! I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by. With the end of the year comes tons of holiday parties, events, kids’ school functions and more. So I wanted to share one of the most popular posts each year…how to wear jeans to a holiday party! If you’ve started your holiday shopping, make sure you check out my Holiday Gift Guides here or in the Holiday tab above.

The secret to wearing jeans to a holiday party is to pair them with luxe tops, jackets, shoes and accessories. If you treat the denim as a pair of slacks, you are right on target.  The past three years I’ve shown you how to wear different washes of denim, dark, black and tuxedo striped.  If you missed my past posts on how to wear jeans to a holiday party, you can find them here, here, and here. In this year’s holiday jeans outfit I wanted to share something a little different…a gorgeous winter white look!

I’m wearing a pair of white denim jeans with a beautiful silk blouse from Lily Pulitzer. It has a balloon sleeve and subtle gold foil detailing. It would be perfect on its own. But I also love it with the vest over it! The vest is also from Lily Pulitzer and has so many details I love. Velvet trim, gemstone embellishments, and a pretty printed lining. It’s also lightweight so you can easily layer it! I threw on some nude heels, a gold clutch, and earrings to complete the easy holiday jeans look!

You can shop more pieces perfect for wearing with jeans in the boutique below! And find more style inspiration in my Holiday Style Shop.
