Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, holiday party season is officially here. The next few weeks will be filled with holiday parties and social events, so I partnered with some of my favorite Memphis bloggers and style influencers to share a little outfit inspo to help you get through the season. I have some pretty stylish friends, and while they’re all creatives at heart, they work in different fields, are different ages, and have their own personal party style (which means more outfit options!).
No two social calendars will be the same this season, so if you’re in need of a little outfit inspiration, I hope you find some in these holiday party looks from my faves!
Glitz and sequins aren’t really my thing, so when it comes to holiday attire, I just elevate my everyday! A simple black sweater and gold skirt are a great foundation while a leather jacket, sleek ponytail and a dark lip give the look some edge. Finishing the look with hint of holiday red and leopard booties keep it fun and festive-perfect for holiday gatherings!
I love dressing for the holidays and adding a little something extra to my outfits. These red pants add just enough holiday cheer to my outfit and my velvet tank and studded blazer add the perfect amount of texture. I can’t forget my glitter heels, they are a must during the holidays!
During the holiday season I like to incorporate my daily city-dweller looks with holiday tones. The plaid overcoat is taking over the menswear community right now. I thought this versatile jacket would be perfect for holiday festivities! I paired it with black skinny denim to keep my street-style vibes going, and topped it off with this red sweater to bring the holiday spirit alive!
As a mom and wife, it’s important to remember myself and how beautiful I am during this holiday season. I chose to glam my look up with a velvet dress and textured tights because ‘tis the season to be gorgeous.
A chic lady suit is my outfit of choice for the holidays. If paired with a touch of sparkle, it’s the perfect way to say “I’m laid back and sophisticated, but definitely here party.
I wear suits (and people expect me in suits), and I wanted to show holiday cheer but not beat everyone over the head with it, so I opted for off red and green color palettes. Floral prints in the tie + pocket square and hints of gold from the tie bar and cuff links add more personality/flare while also giving it a mature vibe.
The holiday season means many holiday parties for me, some after work and others on the weekend. This look is perfect for a weekend holiday party. Fur vests are a fall/winter staple for me, so I decided to dress this animal print fur vest up and pair it with a lace mini skirt + bodysuit instead of an LBD. I kept my accessories simple since the fur vest and lace fabric are pretty dramatic. Can’t forget the holiday red lipstick: ‘Tis the season!
A dress during the holidays is always my go-to. I love how it’s one piece that can always make a big statement. I was immediately drawn to this dress – the beautiful emerald color + big bow detail was perfect for this holiday season.
Holiday style for me always means adding a little sparkle. But I didn’t want to go with the basic black or silver sequin look. I wanted to add some color and have a little fun! This outfit screams Happy Holidays in the most fabulous way possible!
Though I don’t have a high fashion IQ, I’m a sucker for a nice pair or chinos. I also don’t believe you have to spend a lot to look good. I chose my outfit based on it being versatile enough to go to dinner and to a party.
This outfit was inspired by my personal style. I am headed out to a holiday party where color was not optional. Using the colorful faux fur as a base, I pulled the green dress and magenta booties from my closet completing this outfit for a look that says Colorful Holiday Chic!
