When it comes to the holidays, one of the best ways to kick up your heels is with a cute new outfit. To inspire you to look and feel gorgeous this season, here are 5 of my favorite (budget-friendly) fashion finds from Amazon. From holiday date nights and dinners to Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties, learn why these looks are suitable for all types of holiday celebrations.
5 Stylish Outfits to Wear to Holiday Parties
If you’re anything like me, you love a good opportunity to play dress-up (especially since most of us have been living in loungewear all year). Since I was a kid, I’d get nearly just as excited about planning my outfit for an upcoming party as going to the actual party. And, apparently, my inner child still has the same level of enthusiasm even now (which is why I’m already planning ahead).
That said, to make shopping even easier for you (and help you navigate the fashion rabbit hole of Amazon), here are 5 outfits that are chic, classy, and glamorous for all types of holiday festivities.
What To Wear To A Holiday Dinner Party
From intimate and romantic gatherings to elegant dinner parties, a beautiful look is a lace dress with spaghetti straps. The key to this sensual style is to opt for a dress with a lower hemline (that still shows a peek of legs, without getting too racy). This type of dress is especially ideal for romantic dinners or even company-hosted holiday dinners, since it’s modest-looking overall, with just a hint of sexiness.
What To Wear To A Holiday Wedding
If you’ve been invited to a holiday wedding, then most likely it will be a more formal affair. So, in this case, a gown is definitely a great way to go. One of the most beautiful (and budget-friendly) gowns I’ve discovered on Amazon is this versatile dress. What’s especially awesome about this particular dress is that the straps can be worn in a multitude of ways – from halter style to wrap-around, and beyond. It also has a built-in bra, so it’s ideal for keeping “the girls” in place (even on the dance floor). The ruching on the front also makes it figure-flattering, and the sumptuous fabric and overall silhouette give it a Grecian goddess vibe.
What To Wear To a Christmas Cocktail Party
If you’re planning on attending a Christmas cocktail party at a chic venue or even a friend’s home, then a stylish, timeless look is a lace-trimmed camisole paired with a flattering A-line skirt. I love this look as it’s a bit flirty, yet still feminine and elegant. What makes it especially flattering is that the fitted waistband cinches your waist while the skater-style skirt flares out at the hips, giving you an hourglass silhouette (without needing to do crunches or wear shapewear). So, it’s an ideal outfit for hourglass, straight, or even pear-shaped figures.
What To Wear To a Holiday House Party
If you plan to have fun with friends at a holiday house party, then a comfortable yet chic look is going to be your best bet. For that reason, I’m a big fan of a bodysuit paired with stilettos and a glamorous purse. Not only is this sexy, yet sophisticated outfit totally on-trend, it’s also incredibly figure-flattering. Not to mention – it’s stretchy too. So, go ahead – have that sugar cookie, girl!
What To Wear To a New Year’s Eve Party
Last, but certainly not least, is a bedazzling look that will get attention. If you’re planning to hit the dancefloor, toast with champagne, or even get a midnight kiss at a New Year’s Eve party, you’ll definitely turn up the heat in a sequined dress like this one. This gorgeous silver sequined sheath dress features feminine criss-cross spaghetti straps. Since it’s not skintight, it also feels comfortable to wear (even after enjoying an NYE dinner). And, of course, why not up the glam factor with a jeweled bag?! Definitely, a stunning look that’ll turn heads.
