Get Dressy for the Holidays: Christmas & New Year's Eve Outfit Ideas


As the holidays descend on us, you definitely want to wear your best party attire. Whether you’re heading to a work party, cocktail party, Christmas Eve dinner with your new girlfriend’s parents or a New Year’s Eve bash…I’ll do my best to get you set!  Worthington® Printed Crinoline Skirt in black and red overlay on white with a black peeping crinoline

I went shopping recently at J.C.Penney in King of Prussia and picked up a few great items: Worthington® Printed Crinoline Skirt in black and red overlay on white with a black peeping crinoline- easily transforms from day to night by changing shoes and accessories. On sale for 21.99 right now!

I’m seeing a lot of stone jewelry, bauble necklace and earrings and feather pins, headbands and scarves. Top off your outfit with a saucy hat, such marina makaron moscow scarfas Anthropologie’s Sunday Best Hat for $168. A scarf from marina makaron moscow is always a great, vibrant choice as well.

 For the men, Michael Anderer, Creative Director of Philadelphia Fashion Week, suggests: “Holiday wear should be formal, but not black tie. For men, a play on a tux is always the perfect choice. Rag & Bone does it well with

Black Flak Tuxedo Jacket

this Black Flak Tuxedo Jacket, White Tuxedo Shirt and Black Blade III Trouser.” Michael also adds that blazers are always the perfect choice for Christmas dinner, for women and men. Both gar-de and Matthew Izzo have great lines.

“For women, a basic cocktail dress is always the perfect choice, I'm always a fan of black accessorized with a lot of sparkle for the holidays, like this modern amusement dress: paired with anything form House of Harlow,” says Michael. "I also think adding tulle to a summer dress is a great way to get more out of your wardrobe. This cute summer dress from Acne is perfect for a cocktail party with the added layer underneath. I also adore these fingerless gloves from local designers Delicious. Cute and functional!" 

Always look clean, polished and together- as my mother says, you never know who you’re going to run into! So get sparkled up, grab a bottle of wine, and head to the nearest party and have fun!
