Dress Alternatives: Not-Your-Typical Party Looks

Apparel, Featured, Outfit Ideas, What's Trending  /   /  By Lily Montasser

The holiday parties are lining up and you need something to wear, STAT. But if the typical black dress/stiletto combo just isn’t your jam, we’ve got alternative looks to take on the season in style. Whether you’re suited up in a men’s-inspired get-up or dancing ‘til dawn in a patent leather mini, scroll below to see outfits for all your festive affairs.

1. Wear the Pants

Equal parts stylish and comfy, we love palazzo trousers for any event (plus, they’re very holiday dinner friendly). Pair with a simple heel and metallic top for chic simplicity.

2. Green Envy

For the girl who’s down for holiday hues but also wants to get down in a leather mini, this look’s for you. The deep emerald sweater brings extra holiday cheer to any outfit.

3. Seasonal Sneakers

‘Tis the season for sparkle. But if glitter dresses aren’t your thing, try a pair of sparkly sneakers with a cool men’s-inspired ensemble.

4. Blaze It

A snowy blazer for any occasion is amazing, but by adding bedazzled derby shoes and a shiny Kenzo clutch, you can transform this into a serious cool-girl party look.

5. Crimson Tide

We love unexpected ways to wear red during the holidays, and a stylish maxi is sure to do the trick. Wear with a straightforward top and metallic accessories.

6. Back to Black

For those loyal to all-black ensembles, make it holiday party-ready with a lace blouse and mirrored booties.
