Make an Entrance: Holiday Party Outfits at Three Budgets
Posted on 06 December 2017
The season of endless celebrations and holiday events is upon us already, if the chill in the air wasn’t enough of an indication. This time of year always presents a dilemma for the more (or less!) fashionably-minded among us: how to dress for all those parties! Whether you want to be the belle of the ball in a show-stopping glitzy outfit, or feel comfortable and cozy while getting into the festive spirit, we’ve got options for you.
Option #1: Add a Glamorous Accessory ($)
The easiest way to make your existing wardrobe work for holiday party season is to add some new bling! You’ve probably got a few dresses or fancier blouse/skirt or slack combos that would work for the holidays. Choose classic black for evening, or go with festive reds, greens, jewel-tones or metallic hues at this time of year.
A sparkly new belt is always a great choice for updating party outfits you’ve worn before. We have some fantastic metal, rhinestone, and embroidered options in stock right now!
Functional and fashionable, a glitzy new clutch or shoulder bag is a great way to make a statement at your next occasion. Stash your essentials in a beautiful silky handbag, a fun mermaid-scale bag, or any number of sparkly little clutches!
Whether you prefer earrings, necklaces, or bracelets, we’ve got you covered! A new piece of jewelry can be the affordable focal point for your holiday outfit this year. Get your glam on with one of these fantastic pieces, or check out what else we’ve got in store!
Even if money is tight after shopping for all those presents, there are quite a few stunning pieces to glam up any outfit for around $20.
Option #2: Expand Your Party Wardrobe with Separates ($$)
It’s just the truth that separates stretch your wardrobe further! They’re the real workhorses of your holiday wardrobe, making any outfit instantly more festive. Plus, the right layering piece can turn a reliable standby dress into a brand new party outfit.
Whether you’re more of a sequinned blouse or a kitschy Christmas sweater gal, we’ve got pieces to tickle your fancy this winter. Plus, separates like this are a great way to get in the spirit without going too wild, if you tend to err a little more on the side of conservative dressing. These two are available online (click to go to product page):
A good tartan skirt can be worn with coordinating holiday colours, or paired with neutrals to extend its wear beyond the party season.
Looking for arm coverage, warmth, and year-round wearability from your new holiday wardrobe options? Try a red or green bolero to instantly transform any outfit to an acceptably festive option when paired with some shiny jewelry. These are also available online (click on them!)
Option #3: Treat Yourself to a Fantastic Frock ($$$)
Our favourite choice! We do have dresses available at a wide range of price points, including stunning holiday party options for every budget. Whether you like lace, velvet, prints, or sparkles and sequins, we’ve got a dress for you.
