Welcome to the 12 Days of Holiday Outfits challenge! In case you missed the first few days, we’ve paired up with Jo-Lynne Shayne and Cyndi Spivey from Walking in Grace and Beauty to style 12 fun outfits to help inspire you this holiday season! So far we’ve tackled What to Wear for Thanksgiving, What to Wear for Black Friday Shopping, What to Wear to a Work Holiday Party and today’s focus is What to Wear to a Home Holiday Party.
Like is the case with most of my looks, I want my holiday outfits to be fashionable, yet comfortable. And that goes double when I’m hosting guests in my home. As the hostess, it’s my job to make sure everyone is happy, fed and entertained. I certainly don’t want to be in the kitchen all night in an ensemble that is less than comfy. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to look fabulous…It will be my party after all!
One of my favorite formal, yet comfortable pieces is a pair of relaxed tuxedo pants. They go with SO much and you can easily style a holiday look around them. Remember this outfit that I wore to fashion week? It would be perfect for an at home holiday. Neither the flowy blouse nor the pants are constricting and the metallic statement necklace and shoes insert a little holiday vibe into the look. Here’s a tip…I like to start out the night in a pair of fabulous heels, but I keep a chic pair of flats on hand in case I want to ditch the heels later in the night.
I know turquoise isn’t a traditional holiday hue, but you don’t always have to go with red or green. That being said, in case you want to go a more traditional route, I’ve styled a similar look for you with a different color palette.
So, are you planning on throwing your own holiday party this year lovelies? Before you head over to Jo-Lynne’s and Cyndi’s sites for more holiday style inspiration, don’t forget to enter our BIG $250 Rack Room Shoes giveaway HERE!
