No matter how much you want to be a hermit during the holiday season, chances are, you’ve been invited to at least one holiday party or festive get-together. Choosing the right outfits can obviously be daunting, and not everyone is a pro at dressing for the right occasion, whether it’s a company party, a formal gala, your SO’s parents’ Christmas gathering, or a chill gathering with your best buds. For that reason, check out our sophisticated-ish outfit ideas below! 😀
Your close friends’ house party – When those surrounding you have seen you at your worst, you can be yourself and let loose, while staying comfortable. Flats and shorts is the way to go, guys! We’ve kept the look slightly fancy so you’ll look good in photos, of course.

Your best friend’s social gathering or at your frenemy’s/ex’s party – Now’s the time to go for gold, ladies. There may be hot potential boyfriend candidates all around wanting to get to know you, and it’ll also be a plus when you outshine the enemy. This jumpsuit, paired with gold-toned accessories is a surefire way of looking powerful and exquisite.
For the company year-end party or your SO’s parents’ place – Stash your low-plunging necklines away ’cause you want to leave a good (and lasting) impression here, especially in front of your future in-laws or boss. The royal blue midi skirt adds a pop of colour, and we jazzed up the black high-neck jumper with a statement necklace for added interest.
For a fancy formal affair – When looking for gowns, always choose those that aren’t too embellished or in your face, if you know what we mean. This way, you can wear them more than once without being too distinct, and you can always switch up the accessories depending on what the occasion calls for. This teal gown will complement many different skin tones!
