10 Holiday Party Outfit Ideas You May Not Have Thought Of

Thursday, December 04, 2014

Dear Sharon,

Been following you like a Chasid for over a year now...I need a personal shopper!!! No clue what to wear to work holiday parties. I want to be modest but super hot and cute too ;) 



Dear Chavy,

Thanks for the great post idea! Have no fear. Holiday party outfit inspirations are coming right up. And they're hot, hot hot!



And here we go...

10 Holiday Party Outfit Ideas You May Not Have Thought Of

1. Add vivid fur and gloves to any outfit, and you're ready to party.

Style tip: Contrast two hues next to each other on the color wheel for combinations that works.
as seen at Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013

2. Pair leopard with a red party skirt

Style tip: A bright lip is the perfect compliment to this look.

3. A tulle skirt is the ultimate party piece, but wear it simply with a black top so you don't look 5 years old. 
Style tip: Add a cropped jacket to add more sophistication to this look.

4. Go from work to party by glamming up a classic career skirt and jacket with a  blouse and belt.
Style tip: A vividly colored bag and shoes will punch up the wow factor even more.

 5. Here's another day to evening idea. For day, pair an asymmetrical blouse and leather jacket with a pencil skirt, then simply switch to a festive floor length skirt for the party.

Style tip: Casual leather can surprisingly be worn with party clothes.

6. Try all white (all winter), and add a punch of color with a bold lip and a fun clutch.

Style tip: Try tea length!

7. Contrast rich textures using neutral colors.

Style tip: Fur shrugs look great with shimmery skirts.

8. Copy Jamie Chung: Pair a fuzzy sweater with a sparkly skirt.

Style tip: The classiest length for a curve hugging skirt is several inches below the knee.

9. Black is never boring...as long as there's texture and bling.

Style tip: You'll never go wrong sporting a fur jacket over a beaded frock.

10. Buy a full, floral skirt. It will become your go-to party staple.

Style tip: Get creative and try styling like you haven't done before. (eg. mixing stripes with floral)

Oh, and here are a few more bonus styling tips:

Always be yourself. Like what you see in the mirror before you leave.  Snap a selfie. Do you still like what you see? Then you're good to go. Once you leave your house, leave your self doubt at the door. If you're confident you will shine. Smile. Give compliments, because what you put out there will come back at you.

And mostly, it's a party...have fun!

  1. These are marvellous, love the top one and the glittery one ;))) Perfect choices. Happy weekend doll xx

  2. There is one thing I regret (on all the modest fashion blogs I've seen so far): how can you dress modestly and look great when you don't wear a sheitel but a scarf, hat, beret... I feel like a beautiful wig is always part of the success of the look and covering your hair differently completely changes the result.
    I might have to create my own blog... lol
    Anyway, thanks for those great ideas and shabbat shalom!

  3. All great ideas! 3 and 8 are my favorites, just need to go tulle or sparkly skirt-shopping!!
