In December, there is no shortage of holiday celebrations, and each brings the need to dress fashionably. After all, you might be meeting up with friends or family after months of not seeing each other, and don’t we all want to look our best? We found nine holiday-appropriate looks for three of the most common December celebrations — your office holiday party, a festive night with friends and all of the family-friendly activities you’ve got planned. Celebrate the season in style with these nine party looks!
OFFICE HOLIDAY PARTY
It’s always tough to decide what to wear to the office holiday party. You want to look conservative and polished, yet festive and fun. We suggest opting for a pleated dress complete with metallic shine for an understated, glam look. Holiday red in an office-appropriate length is another fantastic option as is styling a statement skirt — don’t let your holiday palette only consist of reds and greens! Blue is a gorgeous and unique wintry choice.
For an office holiday party, it’s important to stay conservative and professional, but a festive touch of glam never hurts! This pleated number is the perfect length and is completed by metallic shine just right for the season. This, at Anthropologie, is $158. Details here. Image: Anthropologie

Plus, you can wear it throughout the entire year! This, at Anthropologie, is $418. Details here. Image: Anthropologie
Why not go for a skirt at this year’s office holiday party? We love the idea of opting for a wintry shade of blue instead of the classic red and green, and this adorable skirt is just right! Pair it with a simple, black top and some statement earrings, and you’ve got the ideal holiday office party look. This, at J.Crew, is $88. Details here. Image: J. Crew
FESTIVE NIGHT WITH FRIENDS
Dressing for a night with friends calls for bolder, more playful options. We love going for a sophisticated jumpsuit rather than a dress for an on-trend chic style, however a statement-making midi dress in the hue of the season is a staple for your winter wardrobe. Or, if you’d rather rock a pair of wide leg trousers or flattering black pants, an embellished blouse is ideal for understated holiday glam.
For a festive night out with friends, you’ve definitely got room for a more statement-making style. This fabulous holiday dress comes in an array of colors and is unmatched in December-appropriate glam. This, by Dress the Population, is $269. Details here. Image: Lyst

Lastly and often most memorable, the holiday season is jam-packed with family-friendly events and celebrations like local performances, concerts, ice skating or admiring neighbors’ and friends’ Christmas lights. It’s worth it to stay stylish through these events as family pictures are inevitable, but comfort is key! We’ve found a to-die-for blouse that can be dressed up or down throughout the season, the perfect go-to everyday dress and a fun, yet polished skirt that you’ll love throughout the entire year. Happy styling!
