Holiday Party Outfits – What to Wear on a Night Out

9 Dec

This morning I skipped my usual high intensity workout and opted to do a 20 minute pilates DVD that I totally forgot I had. I think it was my moms but I somehow got a hold of it. It’s called Winsor Pilates and it’s pretty low impact but great for toning.

This weekend I’ll be celebrating Matt’s birthday with him. Tomorrow night we’re going to go out for some drinks with his friends. I’m excited to finally give him his birthday gifts!

What to Wear on a Night Out

This is the second and final part of my Holiday Outfit series. This post will focus on what to wear on a night out with friends and loved ones. Whether that’s a casual night in, a bar or other event where you want to get a little more dressed up, or going all out and classy for New Years or Christmas, I have outfit ideas for you.

Dress Up the Bar Night

Oasis pink top, $17, H M tux jacket, £35, TopShop wet look pants, $44, City Streets platform shoes, $25, H M clutch hand bag, £15, FOSSIL cocktail jewelry, $36, Spike jewelry, $24

Going out with friends for New Years or just going to a bar to catch up? This outfit is a great mix of girly, punk, and refined. First, let’s start with the wet look pants. They have a leather-like look that brings this outfit up a couple of notches. The pants paired with the pumps just scream fierce, while the frilly top add some femininity to this outfit. The menswear inspired tux jacket adds a bit of refinement and also pulls this outfit all together. I went with a simple clutch, but the jewelry is a great accent. The spiked gold hoop and studded ring keep with the edgy theme of this outfit.

I personally love mixing very different elements and this outfit is a great example of that. This would be great outfit to wear to a bar or another evening holiday event where you may not want to get totally dressed up.

Holidays at Home

J Crew scoop neck sweater, $120, Mango straight leg pants, £40, Born leather flat, $70, Oasis camel handbag, $70, Green jewelry, $25, Mimco yellow gold bangle bracelet, £35

Some holidays are simply just spent at home, with family gatherings, small events with friends, or just enjoying Christmas dinner with those closest to you. This outfit is pretty effortless, comfy and still chic. The sweater can be worn slouched over one shoulder. The black trousers make the outfit look a little more polished than just wearing jeans. The flats are cute, but comfy. Who wants to walk around in heels all the time? The earrings and bangles are simple accessories that help to dress this up. The bag is basic and easy to carry or just leave in the coat room.

Christmas Party Glam

Oasis gold dress, $60, Michael antonio shoes, $69, MICHAEL Michael Kors metallic handbag, $100, Jessica Simpson snowflake jewelry, $48, Kenneth Jay Lane yellow gold drop earrings, $45, Leather sash belt, $75

Everything about this outfit screams glamor. From the gold sequined dress to the gorgeous plum pumps. The sash on the dress wasn’t doing anything for me so I would exchange that with the leather sash belt, which also follows with the rest of the color pallet. The gold drop earrings and large cuff bracelet are great accents to this already beautiful dress. The clutch is also simple and plays off the gold accents.

This would be a great outfit for a more formal Christmas party with family and friends. I would totally drink some eggnog by the fireplace in this.

Fun New Years Outfit

By the5kfashionista

Evening party dress, $230, DV by Dolce Vita heel pumps, $74, Dorothy Perkins navy blue handbag, $39, Blu Bijoux black and gold jewelry, $36, Juicy Couture navy blue earrings, $48

New Years is a time to go big or go home and this dress is definitely a show stopper. It doesn’t need much accessorizing, but the small touches add to the glamor. Plain black pumps would do but the bows add that extra little something. I like how the blue accents look against the gold. The studs are simple and the clutch adds just a little extra sparkle. The bracelet is interesting without taking away from the dress. Sometimes you find a piece that just needs to stand alone and this dress deserves all the attention. I would love to party my way into 2012 wearing this!

What’s your favorite look?

This is a tough one, but I think my favorite is the New Years dress. You just don’t get to wear a dress like that very often and it just looks like you would have a great time in it.

Have a great weekend everyone!
