5 Formulas for Holiday Party Outfits

1. Leather and a Sweater

Leather can be both seasonal and understated. Blend the edginess of leather with the softness of a sweater for a perfect balance. Casey has a clever trick that involves repurposing a leather dress into a skirt – a classy and safe entry into bold holiday fashion.

2. Leather Pants

Leather pants are a wardrobe staple, versatile enough to span three out of four seasons. Paired with a sparkly top, this combination turns a basic into a chic, elevated statement. Casey recommends Zara for affordable finds that won’t break the bank.

3. Sequin Skirt

Head to Zara and H&M for affordable and pretty sequin skirts. Keep it simple by pairing it with a sweater, striking the perfect balance between festive and understated chic. Sequins don’t need to be intimidating; make them your best friend this season.

4. Satin Pants and Fur

Satin pants from Target under $40? Yes, please! Casey recommends these as a versatile and budget-friendly option. Paired with a pretty blouse and a touch of fur, it’s a combination that proves fur is not just for special occasions – it can elevate your everyday look.

5. Accessories

For those who find these ensembles a bit extra, Casey suggests turning to accessories. Velvet, pearls, and gold are the holiday trifecta. Whether it’s a velvet clutch, pearl earrings, or a touch of gold bling, accessories can add that final touch of glam to your outfit.
