5 Holiday-Themed Party Outfits That Are Sure To Make Heads Turn

Joanna Fernandes

2021 has introduced a lot of diverse and fun party-wear fashion trends that are absolute wardrobe must-haves! This year also brought back some holiday-favourite styles from the past years, like velvet and striking shimmery looks. All of these are guaranteed to make heads turn while adding elegance and vibrance to your winter festivities. With our social calendars filling up, people everywhere are hunting for outfits to get all decked up for one of the most popular traditions of the season: the New Year's party. Not to worry though, we've got you covered with some stunning outfits so get ready to take some notes!

Let's have a look:

1. Colourful Suits

As I'm sure we all know by now, pantsuits have been all the rage this year. It's only natural that it becomes part of the party season bandwagon! To get in the Christmas spirit and spread some holiday cheer you could always opt for colours like red or green. To be honest though, pretty much any colour in a suit is sure to look absolutely fab and make you stand out. My newfound love for pantsuit sets stems from the fact that it's such an easy and effortless look; all you need to do is simply throw it on, style it with a pair of pumps and you're good to go!

2. Shimmery Material

If you want to make a statement at your parties, anything in a shimmery, metallic material will certainly do the job! Be it a mini skirt, a dress or even some fun pants, either way, you're sure to be the centre of attention. The skirt or pant look can be toned down by pairing it with neutrals like whites or blacks. You could also choose to kick things up a notch by adding a pop of colour and opting for the colour blocking trend. Turning up the glam quotient all the way can also be achieved by simply wearing a shimmery set in this material. What I love about that is not having to waste time thinking about what to pair it with!

3. Everything Leather

This year leather has made quite the comeback and it's sure to stay for a long period this time around. If you don't already have some, run not walk and go get yourself some leather. Trust me, from pants to dresses to skirts and even jumpsuits, wearing any of them will certainly keep you looped into the trend. A little life-hack for you fashionistas; adding leather to your outfit is a great way to give it a chic and sophisticated vibe. Leather is extremely versatile and is super easy to be dressed up or down depending on your mood. This definitely makes it a staple not only for the holiday season but all year round as well.

4. Chunky Sweater Dresses

If not anything else the pandemic has definitely made us appreciate and gravitate to anything comfortable in nature. Since things are beginning to go back to normal, gone are the days when cosy PJ's are all that we wore. Don't get me wrong, I love me some comfy PJ's but actually going to parties does require a little more effort. Here's where sweater dresses come in. They have the perfect balance between being cute and comfortable. Just slip into a chunky sweater dress, add a pair of tights with some black boots and you're party-ready in the cosiest outfit ever!

5. Velvet Dresses

Velvet is probably the most season-appropriate material right now. It gives the perfect amount of shine while also keeping you warm. Dresses of all shapes and sizes in velvet are available nowadays giving you a plethora of choices to choose from. For a formal dinner party, you could opt for an elegant style like a body-hugging, midi dress and a good pair of pointy-toed heels. Wrap-around dresses also are a fun way to achieve that easy-breezy look. You could either keep it casual with some sneakers or dress it up with some boots. I know I for sure will be rocking some velvet this season!
