It’s the season to be jolly, because of all the feasting, shopping, and
partying you’ll be doing this holiday season! What’s a girl to do when there
are plenty of occasions for merry-making? Look her best at every one of them,
of course!
But the last thing you want to do is show up under-dressed for a
Christmas bash, or overdressed for a simple cosy Christmas dinner. So how do
you decide on appropriate outfits for Christmas celebrations? 
Here’s how: 
1. Cosy Dinner with the Family
Go for a fun, sophisticated look that is grown-up enough so that you
don’t get stuck at the kids’ table (not that that’s a bad thing – little
cousins can be more fun to hang out with!), but not so stuffy that your
relatives start asking when you’re going to get married.

Try: a floral or motif print blouse, a pair of slouchy pants (to make
room for dessert!) and pull the look together with a skinny belt and (optional)
dark blazer.
2. Dinner with Your Other Half and His Family
Go with cozy knits and unfussy fabrics like cotton and linen. They give
off that down-to-earth, girl-next-door vibe that will have your guy’s parents
warming to you instantly. Knits don’t have to be frumpy, though. 

Try: Steal Keri Russell’s look and pair a comfy cream-coloured knit
sweater with distressed skinny jeans and Oxford shoes. If you’d like more
colour, go for a pastel sweater and a skirt of modest length. You’ll look pulled
together but still approachable.
3. Cocktail Party
It’s a cocktail party, so bring on the glitz and sparkle! Think sexy but
fun, so a sequin mini dress is the perfect go-to. A flirty fit-and-flare dress
paired with statement accessories or strappy heels will also do the trick.

Try: The more you sparkle, the better. This shift dress from Mango is
swingy, comfy and glitzy rolled in one!
4. Christmas Bash with Close Friends
If fancy cocktail parties aren’t quite your thing, and you’d rather
spend Christmas with a few close friends in your pyjamas, then get comfy in
slouchy boyfriend jeans or leggings.

Try: Even though it’s a slumber party, that doesn’t mean you can cop out
and dress like a slob in your sweatshirt. Try something fun and unexpected
instead, like leggings with a whimsical print.
5. Office Party
The office shindig is always a grey area. When you mix work with
alcohol, it’s easy to get carried away and toss decorum out the window. So let’s
clear this up once and for all: you are partying with your colleagues and your
boss, so keep your look semi-professional. How do you strike a balance between
fun colleague and serious employee?

Try: A dressier version of what you would normally wear to the office.
Add some glitz to your jewel-toned sheath with a skinny belt and metallic or
nude pumps, or glam up your graphic pants and satin blouse ensemble with
statement accessories.
