Figuring out what to wear to different events can be challenging if you’re unfamiliar with the venue or setting. When it comes to dressing for a country club holiday party, there are a few key things to think about.
Since country clubs often have dress codes (or even just unspoken expectations about attire), it’s advisable to lean on the conservative side. Leave the short mini skirt and over-the-knee boots at home, and opt for a stylish jumpsuit or elegant dress instead.
When in doubt – ask yourself “What would Coco Chanel do?!”. She’d probably say “keep calm and stay classy”!
How To Style a Lace Jumpsuit for a Country Club Party
To help you look chic (and venue-appropriate) this holiday season, today’s style guide shares tips on how to style a lace jumpsuit for a country club party.
Look for a Wide-Leg Jumpsuit
When shopping for a jumpsuit, consider choosing one with that’s constructed using a dressier fabric, such as a romantic lace (like this wide-leg lace jumpsuit).
Instead of choosing a jumpsuit with a skinny leg (since that tends to be sexier looking), it’s wise to opt for one with a wide-leg pant and a fitted bodice. This type of silhouette is flattering on most figures (as it accentuates your curves without being too over-the-top for a country club), while still keeping it tasteful looking.
Even if the top has a low-cut neckline (like the one shown here), by opting for a wide-leg pant, it balances the look. A peek of cleavage is all you want, as that hints at sensuality, rather than being overtly sexy (which isn’t recommended for a country club party).
Add Sparkle with Jewelry
To make your outfit holiday party ready, a little sparkle is all you need. A dramatic art deco-inspired statement bracelet with dazzling gemstones makes a bold statement. Festive gold-toned floral drop earrings add a playful touch. A chic gold lariat necklace accentuates the neckline of the jumpsuit. And a gorgeous designer cocktail ring with a semi-precious stone ties it all together.
Cover-Up with a Cropped Blazer
To keep you warm and add a sophisticated touch, a cropped blazer is a must-have. Not only does this enable you to show-off your waistline (since it’s not too long), it also makes your outfit looked pulled-together and classy.
A Beaded Bag Ups The Glam Factor
Since you’re attending a holiday party, why not turn up the glam factor with a luxe-looking beaded clutch? Carry your must-have essentials (like lipstick, a wallet, and cell phone) in a compact clutch bag that’s decked out in dazzling beads.
Opt for Pointed Toe Pumps
To keep your outfit classy-looking from head-to-toe, a pair of single sold pointed toe pumps is the finishing touch. Not only is this a more practical option (for cold winter nights), but it always looks sophisticated and stylish. Not to mention – it helps to elongate your legs, which makes you look taller and leaner. For an even more luxe-look, opt for black suede, as it elevates your outfit to a country club holiday party level.
